Salon Owner/Beauty Therapist
I used to work in the travel industry and have been lucky enough to see many Countries and cultures around the world. I met my husband Jon and decided to change career path and enter the beauty industry to make a change in people’s lives and the way they see themselves. I created Daroma Beauty in 2008 and strive to continue to make the salon a retreat to escape the stresses of the outside world. I believe to be a successful beauty therapist you have to deliver perfection and exceptional customer service to All your clients every single time.
Top Tip: Always take your make-up off at night time no matter how tired you are, if you leave make-up on it can clog pores, cause breakouts and eye infections due to your face rubbing against the pillow and pushing make-up back into your skin. Always put a moisturiser on at night so your skin can repair and enhance its moisture level whilst your asleep.
Favourite Product: Dermalogica’s Age Smart moisturiser, dynamic skin recovery spf30. I cant live without it! Keeps my skin hydrated all day, protects my skin at a high level from the sun and leaves my skin with a dewy natural glow.
From a very early age I have had a passionate interest in the world of hairdressing. My aim is to educate and bring out strengths in the team by training, developing and leading the staff to be the best hairdressers they can be.
I like to keep a close eye on the upcoming trends. My philosophy is hair needn't be complicated, puts the focus firmly on the quality of the cut and reduces the High Maintenance Factor. I have a down to earth honest approach with over 20 years experience in the industry. In the 9 years I have owned the Salon I have watched the team and salon grow, I look forward to the future here at Daroma
