Front of house manager
Why did you choose the beauty profession?
I love to make an effort to look and feel good about myself. Working at k:SPA gives me hands on knowledge and usage of all the amazing treatments and products. Working in such a relaxing place surrounded by lovely smells and fantastic products – I’m like a kid in a sweetshop!
How long have you worked for k:SPA?
I started working here in September 2012, but I’ve been a client here for many years.
How would you describe k:SPA?
We offer a relaxing environment coupled with an extensive range of personal maintenance and pampering treatments using only the most professional products. All the staff are friendly and welcoming, and clients often say they just love to sit and relax here.
How would your clients describe you?
A bit blonde, friendly and smiley, I hope!
What is your favourite treatment and why?
It’s a close call between Jessica Geleration nails and a massage!
Gels are perfect for me as they are really hard-wearing and look great for ages, and it doesn’t matter how short your nails are, they always look great with Geleration on them.
My favourite massage is a firm, deep tissue massage, especially on the back, neck and shoulder area.
What is your favourite Dermalogica product?
I love the whole range, especially Ultracalming and Age Smart because they are perfect for my skin. I use a number of the products which have really improved my skin, but if I had to choose one – it would be Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque. It has a beautiful smooth texture, smells lovely and leaves your skin refreshed and revived.
What is your favourite pampering product?
Aromatherapy Associates ‘Relax Deep’ or ‘De-Stress’ Bath and Shower Oils without question! Since using this product, I don’t use anything else now! Their aroma is heady, very relaxing and leaves your house smelling lovely and your skin feeling amazingly smooth – no need for moisturiser!
What is the best part of your day?
Dusk – when I can light all my candles at home and relax with a glass of wine (or champagne!) on the sofa. I love the ambience different lighting and candles gives you.
What’s your favourite colour?
Red! Just like my handbag and my nails. The girls at k:SPA always laugh at me because 9 times out of 10 I’ve chosen ‘Merlot’ for my nails!
What’s your favourite food?
Homemade Thai Grilled Chicken with Jasmine Rice and a watercress and pine nut side salad. Yum!
How do you spend your time off?
Walking, shopping and relaxing in a coffee shop somewhere! As a Cancerian, I’m a true homebuilder so I’m always planning the next home improvement and normally got my head in a homes magazine somewhere.
What would you do if you didn’t have to go to work?
I’d probably live abroad, somewhere hot by the beach. I love Majorca and the Caribbean so either of those would do nicely.
