Natalie – Salon owner & Beauty Therapist
My journey started in 2003 where my passion for beauty therapy and customer relations started. After studying at the City of Bristol College for 2 years and successfully gained a distinction in City & Guilds beauty therapy I was lucky to get my first full time job in the beauty industry at the age of 18. Here I gained my foundation of knowledge and experience. 2006 I was very privileged to study various massage techniques in Goa, India, which was a fantastic experience! Wanting to further challenge myself and do something different I took a career change and worked as a PA. After a few years out of the salon I realised how much I missed working in salon, meeting people and making people feel special. So I returned back to working in salon where again I furthered my knowledge and under took additional training courses to expend my skills. October 2012 I was given the opportunity to work freelance at a hair studio just after a year on I relaunched A Touch of Beauty at its open premises. Undergoing a huge renovation I opened the doors in November 2013. Being a mum to 3 small children and running a business are the hardest and upmost changeling things but also the greatest achievements of life. I pride myself to ensuring that I provide everyone with an exceptional service they will enjoy! and being a perfectionist – you are assured the highest levels of service.
Shelly – Beauty Therapist
I’ve always had a passion for hair and beauty stemming from my childhood playing with my dolls hair. Whilst I was at school I was given an opportunity to do a hair and beauty option along with my gcse’s. Once I left school I knew which direction I wanted to take so I enrolled onto a Hair dressing course at Filton College and completed my level 3 hair dressing qualification. After successfully completing my course I was really keen on getting some qualifications in beauty. Summer 2014 I was given the chance to do an apprenticeship with A Touch of Beauty. I feel very lucky to have this opportunity in this lovely salon! I really enjoy coming to work, gaining knowledge and getting my hands stuck in. I also enjoy getting to know clients and it’s especially a lovely feeling making people feel good about them selves! I really do believe its called beauty therapy for a reason.
