I have worked in the beauty industry for 8 years and enjoyed every minute of it. I started my home salon when my youngest was two and haven’t looked back. Being able to work from home is essential for us as a family and creates that work/life balance that is so important. I get to take the kids to school, walk the dog, and I’m here when the children come home.
I started teaching 2 years ago and have developed a training system that breaks down the subject into easy to understand modules. It is very important that each student really understands each point and technique and can set up their own business as I have done.
WHAT WERE YOU DOING BEFOREHAND?
Evolution Events was my first business pre-children, I managed big events for Unilever, SA Breweries, Old Mutual, Mercedes etc. I also specialised in the event decor and furniture hire. It was great fun and hard work.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
Its been a fun and lucrative journey. I started doing Shellac Nails 8 years ago. I set up a spare room in my house as a salon. I loved Dolly Parton’s home salon in Steel Magnolias, a place that’s cosy and welcoming, where you want to go to spend time. I kept on adding new treatments, spray tanning, waxing, HD Brows and then Eyelash Extensions hit the market. This treatment was revolutionary and launched my little salon into the big time. It’s a great treatment that makes women feel instantly beautiful.
4 Years ago, I heard about a treatment that was revolutionary, Microbdading. I had many clients that were frustrated with their brows so I took the leap and invested a lot of money in doing the training. Microblading, at the time, was unheard of, so the microblading side of the business took off slowly but now I’ve done over 800 sets of eyebrows. It’s my passion.
AND THE MICROBLADING AND LASH ACADEMY?
I belong to a Microblading Advice Page on Facebook where we all help each other with queries such as which are the best pigments to use, how to stretch the skin etc. and I realised that through trial and error, I had developed a unique system of microblading that is very effective and failsafe. Microblading is a very technical subject matter but I have managed to break it down into easy to understand modules. So, I did my Teachers Trainers which took 6 months to complete and started teaching.
HELPING WOMEN DEVELOP THEIR BUSINESS DREAMS
Learning a trade like Microblading or lashes is only half the job though, getting customers through the doors is another very important factor to consider. Part of my course is how to develop your business, we discuss social networking and other tricks of the trade and I’m pleased to say that my students are all up and running in their own home salons or renting chairs in hairdressers or beauty salons
The Beauty industry is one of the fastest growing sectors in the market and even during a sluggish economy it continues to grow steadily each year.
I want to help women and men enjoy the same job satisfaction and work life balance that I do. I am not saying its easy, but the hard work and rewards make it worth it. Plus, I get to be with my children whenever they need me. Happy Days.
JUST FOR FUN…..
Which part of the Chilterns do you live in? Chalfont St Giles but I have lived in South Africa, Australia and Spain. I have the most expensive IKEA furniture in the world as we have taken it with us around the world.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST AOUT WHERE YOU LIVE?

FAVOURITE THING TO DO AT WEEKENDS……
