Ear Piercing

Has your daughter been mithering to have her ears pierced?

Well with the school holidays upon us, this is an ideal time to have them done. When you have a piercing done the jewellery cannot be removed during the healing period and even after healing the jewellery shouldn’t be removed for long periods of time. So the summer break makes it an ideal time to get your piercings done!

At the FAB Salon we use hygienic, sterile, 24 carat gold or silver plated surgical steel studs with a choice of designs.
