Established March 2003
I haven't always been a Beauty Therapist! I started my career working within a number of customer services industries, but never really felt like I had found my vocation. Growing up, I always wanted to be a Beauty Therapist but this wasn't deemed a 'proper job' then.
A great friend encouraged me to follow my dream when I was made redundant, saying that all I ever talked about was wanting to do something in Beauty! I trained at Reading College, graduating after two years with a Beauty Specialist Diploma, and decided to train a further year in Swedish Body Massage. Whilst studying, I made sure I practised as much as possible on anyone who'd allow me to, so that by the time I was ready to launch my business, I already had a good following and my skill set was well grounded. Building my brand was tough but exciting in such a competitive field, and I was determined. My clients have always been paramount to the success of the business and so long as they're getting the service and treatments they deserve and enjoy, everyone is happy.
Now, years later, my business has happily evolved. I always enjoyed waxing the most and decided to specialise in this area, attending further courses to advance my skills. My core business is now waxing, with manicure, pedicure, eyelash/eyebrow tinting, massage and lash lift and tint treatments to add variety. I make it my mission to use only quality products that give superb results, always.
I continue to run Beauty Basics from home, where I feel I can offer my VIP's the most personal attention and look to meet, if not exceed, their expectations. I simply want to offer a first class service, using quality products and provide my clients - existing and future - with a place they feel at ease, comfortable and happy.
