Gemma Lewis – Escape to Beauty
I trained with the WSBHT back in 2008/2009 and then more recently in 2012 on most of their beauty and holistic courses. I and have always loved beauty and holistic therapies, hence the reason I keep going back for more training. I started my business in 2009 and have not looked back. I have a lovely successful Salon at home based in Oakhurst – Swindon, and I couldn’t be happier. For my treatment menu please view my website or call me on 07748 240 334 www.escape-to-beauty.co.uk
Just over a year ago I decided to pursue my interest in holistic therapy and enrolled on a Swedish massage course at the Wiltshire School. I used to be a nurse and believe strongly in the therapeutic nature of touch, although at this stage I wasn’t sure what the course would lead to. Allie’s excellent teaching meant that I thoroughly enjoyed it and decided to take further qualifications in Indian Head massage, facial massage and skincare, pedicure and manicure. My daughter Emily decided to join me earlier this year and help me to set up our own holistic therapy business- Honeysuckle Holistics- from our home in Calne. We converted part of our garage into a relaxing therapy room, set up our website www.honeysuckleholistics.com and opened for business this summer! The school has such a friendly, professional and flexible approach to teaching that I plan to take further courses soon so that I can widen the range of therapies available to my clients. More than one client has remarked that our treatments have been far better than those they’ve had when visiting salons/spas which is wonderful to hear and reflects well on the training provided by the tutors at WSBHT.
Glisten and Glow
I trained with Tia in November 2011 on the nail extensions course, since then I have done manicure, spray tanning, waxing, tinting & nail art. I am now training in lash extensions. Until recently, I have worked in a salon two days a week to gain experience of a professional salon enviroment. I absolutely love my work, and am now fortunate enough to covert my garage and run my beauty business from home in my own salon. I live in Redhouse, North Swindon. My website is www.glisten-and-glow.co.uk
Beau Beauty and Holistic Therapies
My name is Lynette and I am a qualified beauty and holistic therapist. I am fully insured and am a member of professional organisations including The Guild of Beauty Therapists and the Guild of Holistic Therapists. After starting my own business, I continued to develop my passion for developing and providing person centred treatments through my client’s wants, needs and goals. I continuously refresh my skills and knowledge to continue my professional development and delivery of treatments, assisting me to be able to achieve client outcomes and enable others to enhance their natural beauty, inside and out.
As a therapist, I prefer to work in a holistic nature, seeing the person as a whole rather than as one aspect of their wellbeing. Health, Beauty and Wellbeing go hand in hand with each other and it is important to find balance and show consideration towards the lifestyle of each client who comes to me when receiving treatments. This helps to make treatments person-centred rather than providing a generic treatment. I provide a wide range of treatments to accommodate for client’s different wants, preferences and needs.
Treatments include Hopi ear candles, eye enhancements (ie lash and brow tints, brow reshapes and tidies), facials, massage, tanning. Each treatment is accompanied by a client consultation and aftercare information. In addition the little extras which can make a difference such as tranquil background music and a calm aromatic environment and not forgetting fluffy white towels as required! I also retail products to prolong your treatment. Please check my facebook page Beau Beauty and Holistic Therapies for my special offers and also for new treatments coming soon including nail enhancements and Hot Stone’s, or contact me on 07896 689 940. I am salon based, but can also provide mobile treatments or within my own home.
The Beauty Room at SPV
My name is Gay and I am a qualified Beauty Therapist. I began my career many years ago as a Hairdresser but over the years my priorities changed and I moved into the world of commerce. I have always been interested in beauty and wanted to train as a Therapist but the time was never right. In January 2012 I enrolled at the WSBHT to study my NVQ level 2 to become qualified. I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Tia’s brilliant teaching and encouragement helped me to achieve my goal and I gained my qualification at the end of May 2012. I then did the spray tanning and semi permanent eyelash extension one day Diploma Courses at the school to add to my skills. I intend to enrol for more courses at WSBHT in the New Year.
My son Stefan owns the SPV Hairdressing Salon in Bath Road Swindon which he opened in February 2012 and I was lucky enough to have a readymade Beauty room there. So I resigned from my job as an HR Manager at the end of April, took a couple of months to set everything up, and opened my Beauty business on the 3rd of July. It was a fantastic day when SPV Hair became SPV Hair & Beauty, proving it’s never too late to follow your dreams!
I offer an extensive range of beauty treatments, and am continually adding new skills to my portfolio, which now include Bio Sculpture Gel Nail Overlays, Shellac Gel Polish Manicures and from the 1 December this year Minx Nail Art Overlays.
