I have been in the hair and beauty industry for more years than I’d like to admit to and I’ve owned my own salon for over 20 years!
After having my daughter I returned to the salon with a fresh outlook, keen to learn new skills and started on my brow journey by training with HD brows and subsequently becoming an Elite trainer.
I LOVED brows and ended up with such a huge brow clientele that Permanent makeup became the next obvious step. I do feel that my background in hairdressing, makeup, and brow design has given me a really good foundation on which to build so I really did hit the ground running in some respects.
I have been tattooing now for over 3 years. I’m very lucky to have trained with some of the best artists in the world. My signature treatment is definitely ombre/powder brows even though I love doing liner and lips. I get to work on so many beautiful faces every day, I have clients not only from all over the UK but also some from overseas. It’s very humbling to know someone has travelled so far for me.
I’ve recently started offering one to one training and also some Powder Brow workshops, it’s early days yet but the feedback has been fantastic!
My advice for anyone starting in this industry is to master one thing at a time and to remember you are only as good as the skin you are working in. Make sure to manage your clients’ expectations, we are artists, not magicians!
When I’m not at work you can usually find me over at the stables with my daughter playing with horses, wearing willies and covered in mud……a far cry from the glamorous world of Permanent Makeup.
