I have always loved beauty treatments and anything beauty related. Even as a child I would be fascinated by homemade recipes for face masks using kitchen ingredients, such as banana, honey and olive oil.
So, naturally when I left school I went straight to beauty college. Bretlands Beauty College, based in Tunbridge Wells offered a two year CIBTAC, ( confederation in beauty therapy and cosmetology), part-time course and I also worked in a salon near Bluewater.
The course was outstanding and when I finished I stayed at the salon full time.
Fast foward eight years and I wanted to work nearer home so I moved to a salon in Maidstone. It was great for a short time but knew it wasn't where I wanted to stay.
Then a job came up for a more spa-like salon and knew that was it. I had amazing training opportunities and trained with companies such as, Clarins, Espa, Guinot, Jessica and Aculight laser.
I made amazing friends and built up a lovely client base but something was missing... I eventually realised I would be more content working freelance.
So that's what I did.
A teaching opportunity also came my way with Crystal Clear Skincare whom I love. I now do freelance work, training microdermabrasion and skincare at their training academy.
My business, The Beauty & Lash Room is now based within Shine Hairdressing in West Malling and I love it.
It's funny how over the years how trends with treatments go. I never thought that I would now be specialising in eyelash extensions, eyebrows, and Shellac nails. This is what I do most of and this is where my passion lies.
You can find more information and pictures of my work on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
I look foward to seeing you soon.
