The business of beauty

DIRECTORS OF PRECIOUS RUBIES

In 2010, Booi Ruby and Uluphiwe Precious Mnisi were sponsored by Afrisun East Rand Community Trust to study somatology and hair dressing at the Rene’ Institute of Beauty, where their passion for skin, health and beauty was ignited.

In 201 the skills empowerment programme’s backing came in full circles when , together, Ruby Booi and Uluphiwe Mnisi opened a luxurious day spa at Carnival City’s Club Hotel.

The amalgamation of their first names, they called this dream-come-true Precious Rubies Spa and Beauty Salon. After years of hard work and a will to succeed, they have achieved their goal and are now reaping the rewards – and the girls are still tremendously excited and well-intentioned.

They were even more focused on their clients and providing superior treatments. They take their work seriously and are always eager to serve – ensuring a time of relaxation, peace and calm.
