Recently in the Philip Martin's family, but with a great initial love, Janire Gurtubay is the owner of the Spanish Concept Store, located in Ugao, Miraballes, Bizkaia. Passionate about organic and natural ingredients, she offers the Italian brand to a heterogeneous clientele within a small town of Bizkaia.
Having become a hairdresser by vocation, Janire Gurtubay tells her story in an interview, in which she also reveals some tricks with Philip Martin's products.
When did you become a hairdresser or a beautician and can you briefly tell us your story?
More than 20 years ago, it was my calling from a young age and I did training as soon as I was old enough to enter professional training.

I have all kinds of clients, as I am in a small town within Bizkaia.

After the lock down, my salesman took me to the training center in Bilbao and gave me a demonstration. I immediately loved the products and their compatibility with my vision of cosmetics.

There were several: the hair treatment products and their Henna.
Which product do you like best?

What Philip Martin's product do you always carry with you and why?
Sea Salt Spray for comfort to the scalp and the volume it gives.
