A Banchory salon owner has been appointed as an ambassador for a range of skincare and beauty products for women with cancer.

Julie Sangster of Riah Hair & Beauty in Scott Skinner Square is now the ambassador for the ‘Defiant’ range of skincare and beauty products designed for women with the illness.

She held a launch last week at Raemoir House Hotel entitled Beauty Despite Cancer.

Guests at the event were given an informative talk from creator of the ‘Defiant’ range, Jennifer Young, who flew in specially for the evening.

The Riah team, headed by Julie, also provide a wig customisation service for both NHS and private clients.

Riah has a close association with the Royal Aberdeen Infirmary, the Clan Centre, and Albyn Hospital, working together to provide services to cancer sufferers throughout the North-east.

Julie said: “We strive to create a salon environment where cancer patients can come to relax and be uplifted, and helping them to feel better about themselves.”

“Having the facility to have beauty and holistic treatments available to them, incorporating the new Defiant skincare range which will be suitable for them at whatever stage they are at.”

The evening at Raemoir House Hotel was well attended.

A raffle held for guests raised over £200, which will be donated to local cancer charity, CLAN.

Julie and the team thanked everyone for their support.
