I started my level 2 beauty course as soon as I left school at 16 and went on to complete my level 3 beauty therapy & level 3 media makeup. in my second year at college doing my level 3 course, I decided I was going to start offering a mobile service to clients on my days off and after college hours. I went on to do this for another year until I had saved enough money to have a log cabin built in my mums back garden. this is where I worked from up until I got my salon at the age of 22 in march 2020, a week before the pandemic (awful timing, I know).
I am qualified in most beauty treatments however my main passion is facials! it was my favourite treatment at college, however I disregarded them when I started out on my own because I didn't think people would want them (do not ask me why, I kick myself for it everyday)!
3 years ago, I travelled to Liverpool to train in dermaplaning as it was such a new treatment, but I just knew I would love it & of course I did! then a year later travelled to Manchester to train with bbl, where I learnt body contouring! however even though these two treatments were my passion, I didn't push them enough due to being "too busy" with other demanding treatment.
in the first lockdown I really had time to sit down and think about where I wanted to be and what I needed to do to get there. I decided to take the leap and put all my effort and time into facials and create some amazing treatments that I knew clients would love! This was honestly the best decision I made for me and my business, I get up and go to work everyday, enjoying every single minute!
I have so many more ideas bouncing around in my head and I cannot wait to share them with you all! keep your eyes peeled for what's coming for g.a.b!
