The ORB story
I'm Lottie, ORB owner and I am so pleased to welcome you to ORB online!
I opened the doors to the salon at the tender age of 22. Some call it success at such a young age - with hindsight, I call it being a bit headstrong!
But I had a vision. I wanted to create something different. I had previously worked in salons and spas across the world, which were all pretty similar in their approach. Standard treatments, standard service, standard surroundings and twinkly whale music! At ORB you won't find any of that.
My aim was to create something beautiful - an environment you could walk into and immediately feel your stressed shoulders begin to relax, just by simply being here.
I wanted to make treatments indulgent and results driven, yet also kind to our planet.
I believe that you can't serve from an empty vessel. With the stresses of modern life, we need to take time out for ourselves to restore. This in turn helps us better serve other areas of our life and avoid burnout.
I believe in empathy - caring for not only the planet and our clients overall wellbeing, but also our highly valued staff.
I believe in breaking the mould and preconceptions around the beauty industry. Here, you won't find mindless gossip and superficial staff or treatments. I have brought together a highly trained, knowledgeable and professional team who provide a consistently high standard of service.

A bit about Lottie, by Jemma
Lottie has such a calm energy about her and is the heart of everything at ORB. I feel really proud to work in a salon that dares to be a little different. From the music to the decor, Lottie has put her own stamp on the salon and created somewhere wonderful to work and visit. Another one of Lottie's talents is she always knows the right moment to deliver a Scandimania treat!
A bit about Libby, by Jemma
It's always so lovely to work with Libby. She is so helpful and professional - a little ray of sunshine. Her favourite question to ask is '...what are you having for dinner?'!
Libby has such an infectious laugh and the salon feels brighter with her in it. She also loves anything pink!
A bit about Jemma, by Libby
Jemma is so friendly and kind-hearted, and a very knowledgeable and accomplished therapist to work alongside. She has a naturally calming energy that always puts you at ease, although she also has a wicked sense of humour underneath! Her passion for beauty therapy and caring for clients really shines through her treatments. Jemma has been in the industry for well over a decade and has three children, although she still only looks about 18!
