What do you love about your job? I always love learning something new and meeting new people. The last eight years I have concentrated mainly on my acrylic nail extensions and shellac manicures which I really enjoy. Every day is different with a different set of nails to do, and along the way I have made some really loyal and friendly clients.
Which treatments do you love doing? My favourite treatments are tattoo removal and IPL hair removal, but we also offer a wide range including skin rejuvenation, pigmentation, thread vein, vascular and acne treatments. I’m also excited to tell you that I’m working my way through my level 4 qualification in skin and hair at Manchester university, and will have completed by 2016.
What gives you the greatest job satisfaction? I really enjoy being in the industry. Every day is rewarding. By helping clients feel good about themselves it inspires me to learn more and makes me more determined to get great results.
Which three items would you take with you if you were on a desert island? If I was to live on a desert island, my three top products would be my very important dynamic skin recovery moisturiser with its SPF50, my multi vitamin power recovery mask and my over night repair serum, all from Dermalogica.
What is your ultimate ambition? My ultimate ambition is to live life to the full and be happy.
