Zhor is our Holistic & Massage Therapist and worked closely with Maz when the salon was in its infancy. She has steadily built up her reputation and client list with her massage therapies. If Zhor is not in the salon you can usually find her working out in the gym. She delivers our Reflexology sessions that have helped many clients over the years. Zhor works from the salon three afternoons per week.



After retiring from Preston College in 2007, Maz took over the running of their small family business and spent much of her free time in Total Fitness Gym. After a period of semi retirement she spotted her next ‘project’ in the form of an empty hairdressing unit within the gym which had been empty for around two years. She took over the unit in May 2014 and after a quick revamp Beauty Within was launched. We are now approaching a milestone of four years and are all looking forward to continuing to provide the best service for our clients be it regulars or new ones.
