Have you ever wondered what Tekka actually means or stands for…? It’s a question we do get asked a lot. Some people think that maybe it is a made up word.
Whilst in the process of setting up the salon all those years ago, I can honestly say that thinking of a name was the one aspect that made me lose the most sleep. I mean, this seems crazy doesn’t it?! The stress whilst creating a business is huge, and one certainly not to be taken lightly. But honestly, trying to brainstorm for a business name left me completely stumped. I knew I wanted something short, punchy and just ‘a word’, a word that engrained in your brain and remembered. I wanted it to be totally unique and not obvious to anyone.
The word ‘Tekka’, is actually Cornish, meaning ‘more beautiful’. As soon as I found the word, I just knew that was it and never looked back.
I was just 19 whilst in the process of creating Tekka, turning 20 when its doors opened. Of course along that journey there are a few things I would change or would have maybe done differently, but I have never, ever wanted to change that name. I love it, and love that it was everything I wanted out of that ‘word’ I was looking for and lost so much sleep over.
In September this year, Tekka will be 15 years old, yes 15! That actually scares me slightly, and makes me feel a little old. In those years, Tekka has evolved and grown into the beautiful sanctuary and team we have today. There are some super exciting changes on the horizon for Tekka this year and we can’t wait to get them underway.
I have also decided to dedicate some time for writing a regular blog post, keeping the content light hearted, interesting, relatable and enjoyable reading, whilst keeping you up to date on our brand new product launches and treatments.
