I was a hairdresser for 10 years before I decided on a change of career. Beauty has always inspired me and it’s forever evolving. Always something new to learn. I decided to enrol on a 2 year NVQ Beauty Therapy course. After completing my course I went on to work in a local salon for 6 years. After which I left to start a family, during which I began a mobile beauty business.
After spotting the perfect location Tranquillity was born in 2007 and is going from strength to strength 10 years on. I’m lucky to have a hobby as a job and a passion for such an exciting and ever evolving industry.
I qualified in my Level 1 in Hair and Beauty therapy in high school, that’s when I knew for sure that I wanted to continue learning more within and about the industry. I then went to do my level 2 diploma in Beauty Therapy – this is where I learn all the basics from manicures, waxing, make-up to facials. I then carried on to do my NVQ level 3 in Spa therapy where I learnt all my massage, Indian head massage, hot stones, and aromatherapy massage.
During my time in college I got to do many extra individual courses that included brow threading, airbase airbrush makeup, individual lash extensions, celebrity brows and gel nails.
I did some work experience whilst at college, I went to the Rondo television studio in Anglesey once a week to work with the makeup artists on set, I learnt a lot during my time there and my love for makeup grew even more! I have been with Tranquillity since July 2015.
I have always had a passion for the beauty industry when I was growing up, I knew that this is the path I always wanted to follow. The industry is endless and there’s always so much to learn which I am excited to continue with!
I qualified in 1990 after completing a 3 year Course in NVQ Hair and Beauty. I then began working in a local salon to gain experience before I ran my own hairdressing business in the town where I lived. I then took time out to start a family.
I went back to work in a local beauty salon, where I worked for 3 years after which I chose to work as a mobile therapist. I also work in a local school as a Beauty Therapy Teacher for the last 7 years. I have been with Tranquillity since September 2016.
