What treatment do you most enjoy doing? I love carrying out Permanent Make Up treatments.  The results which can be achieved by Cosmetic Tattooing are amazing and look so natural.  They really can transform a face!

Favourite Beauty Product? Environ AVST Moisturiser.  I often get told I look much younger than I actually am which I put down to good genes and a good skincare regime.  I’ve been using AVST for many years and I swear by it!  I wouldn’t use anything else now.

The treatment everyone should try at least once? Maybe I’m slightly bias because I love doing eyelash extensions but I think every woman should try them at least once.  I have clients of all ages and the difference they can make is incredible.  I think some people are put off because they imagine them to be very heavy and fake looking but applied properly they look really natural and wont damage your own lashes.  They are great to get done just before a holiday or special occasion as you don’t need to wear mascara when you have them on.

What treatment do you most enjoy doing? I love facials!  Having spent many years working with different skincare brands I have learned a great deal about skin and I love being able to help clients with their specific skin concerns.

The treatment everyone should try at least once?  Massage.  Being a therapist for many years I have learned that bad posture can contribute to a great many health issues.  Regular massage can really help to realign the body and soothe aches and pains. It’s also a really great way to unwind and re-energise.
