I am a very friendly and fully qualified Beauty Therapist, Hairdresser, Assessor, Teacher and IQA. I have worked in the industry for over 20 years continually learning new techniques and products, I have now even developed my own semi-permanent makeup machines, which can be purchased from the ‘shop’ tab above.
As my clinic is based next to my house I can keep my prices lower than most training academies and salons whilst still using the best products on the market. I like to make my students feel at ease as well as my clients and like to build up a good relationship with them.
I started off in the beauty industry at just 15, first I worked in my local beauty salon, then going further afield to London and worked for a well-known, high end salon, progressing onto being a supervisor. I was always eager to strive and do the best I could and felt I had gained everything out of that job role, therefore it was time to move on, so at 18 I then got a job for Steiner on cruise ships working in their spa. This was such a great opportunity and I learnt so much about high end treatments, retail & customer service, it’s something I would highly recommend to therapists who have the freedom to go. Once that journey ended, I went back into salons and started a mobile business on the side.
After my first daughter in 2009 I decided it was not feasible to work in salons so Fakealicious ® was born!!! Once my 2nd daughter was born in 2012 this is when I got into Teaching & I loved it! I went from working in FE colleges, to private training academies. Although I loved working at other institutions, I just have always preferred working for myself and doing what I believe is the best thing for the students, so the training side of Fakealicious® started in 2015. I love training and keeping in touch with my students after their training, I have various watsapp group that students are added to for support and guidance once their training is complete. I genuinely want all my students to do well!!
Some of my courses can seem quite cheap and ‘too good to be true’ but the simple fact is I have no overheads as it’s just me, the price does not reflect the training or my clinic!!
