Salon owner, Staffordshire
For five years the founder and director of Obsession Salon and Spa in Branston and Lichfield fought a fierce legal battle with her insurance company following a fire that destroyed what was then her third salon in Birmingham. Twenty-seven hearings, five trials, a potential £2million legal bill… for the duration of the court case life for Karen was traumatic, to say the least (“We continued to trade in our two remaining salons, clinging on by the skin of our teeth”), but with a loyal team behind her, and staying strong despite the extreme circumstances, she and her business made it through and out the other side. Today, with 35 years of business ownership under her belt, Karen has a wealth of experience to share and a listening ear for her future mentee.
