Meet Laura

Hello, I’m Laura.

I qualified as a Beauty Therapist in 2011 after completing both my Level 2 & Level 3. I was lucky enough to get a full time job in a Kidderminster salon following a work placement, a job which I held until 2014. Towards the end of 2014 I left that job and opened up Essential Beauty. Joining forces with Lisa, with whom I had previously work with. Being self employed is something that I always wanted to do.

I like to think that I offer my clients a professional treatment in relaxed way, I like to get them seated with a nice cuppa if they are having their nails done or put them at ease if they are having a more personal treatment.

I enjoy doing all the treatments that we offer, but if I had to single out my most enjoyable it would have to be Massage.  There is just something about the relaxing atmosphere, the beautiful smells of essential oils and knowing the client will feel revived after having time to themselves after the daily stresses that we all face.

What I like most about working at Essential beauty is the atmosphere that is created when we are at our busiest. Working alongside Lisa, it doesn’t feel like you’re working when you laugh and enjoy your day.  I’m quite outgoing and always up for a gossip and a giggle whilst providing you with a great treatment.

I look forward to meeting you.

Meet Lisa

Hi there, I’m Lisa.

I have been in the beauty industry since 2001, and I still love it! I have covered many training course over the years and believe with my experience of working in different environments, it allows me to offer bespoke treatments so you receive exactly what you want.

I really do enjoy doing all of the treatments we offer, I specialise in advanced waxing, eyelash extensions and acrylic nail enhancements. I like to make clients feel relaxed, comfortable and confident that they are going to receive a great experience.

Having worked alongside Laura previously, I think we make a great team! We both have a passion for the industry and are always bouncing ideas off each other. Working together we have a laugh and enjoy our job, along with the Canterbury studio hairdressing team the salon has a great, friendly atmosphere!

I look forward to meeting you soon!
