About Me

Ever since I was a young girl, I’ve had a passion and flair for doing hair and makeup. As I got older, I became the person my friends came to on girly nights out or holidays, often leaving me with only minutes to get myself ready. After working numerous jobs that left me feeling uninspired and unable to channel my creativity, I decided to bite the bullet and make a career from my passion.

In February 2017, I trained with leading lash brand Nouveau and qualified as a lash technician.  I have since completed further training in Russian volume lashes, so can offer a diverse range of lash treatments. Whether you want a natural look or want to go all out, I have the skills, expertise and high-quality products to cater to your needs.

In addition, to lash treatments, I also offer makeup and updos - perfect for a special occasion or night out. I love this aspect of my job, as I get the chance to work with my clients while getting creative to achieve the look they are going for. From natural glamour to vampy make-up, and from sleek and sophisticated to bold and daring updos, I will always listen to your wants to ensure you leave the chair with a big smile on your face.

My personal development is of paramount importance as I want to ensure that I can offer clients the best treatments and the very latest techniques. To expand the range of hair treatments offered, I have recently completed a course on hair extensions. The instant effect and boost hair extensions give fills me joy, and I love seeing clients faces when they get to see their new locks for the first time, there’s nothing better.

In fact, I’d say it’s the best thing about my job. Seeing people feeling more confident and looking happier fills me with pride. It leaves me in no doubt that I was right to take a leap of faith and pursue a career I genuinely love.

Lash Lift

Lash Lift

A lash lift is the perfect treatment for you if you wish to enhance what you already have. This treatment creates the look of longer, fuller lashes without the need for extensions or mascara giving the eyes a more youthful look. Lash lifts are a long lasting and low maintenance alternative to lash extensions. 

Brow Lamination

Brow lamination is a two step eyebrow perming treatment that involves correcting the brow shape by setting the hairs in place using a chemical solution.

In the first step a cream is applied that breaks down bonds in the eyebrow hairs so they can be manipulated into a new position. Step two involves another cream being applied, this is to reuild these bonds and set the brows in their new uniform position. A bespoke brow tint is then applied to create a more defined look.  

If you have unruly, flat or downward growing hairs eyebrow lamination can change the direction of growth to create a more uniform look with a higher arch and more desirable brow shape.

Brow lamination generally lasts 4 to 6 weeks although if maintenance is followed results may last as long as 8 weeks.

Henna Brows

Kiss goodbye to your brow pencil and say hello to Henna brows. Henna brows is a natural alternative to regular brow tint and uses a natural dye from the henna tree to coat the brow hairs with colour as well as staining the skin beneath. The purpose of this is to cast a shadow, creating an illusion of depth and fullness so is also great for those cleints with sparse brows. 

Henna brows can last 2 to 4 weeks depending on skin type and how well the aftercare process is followed. 

*Patch test required at least 48 hours prior to Lash Lift, Brow Lamination and Henna Brows treatments
