What is your name?


What is your job title?

Beauty Therapist.

How long have you been qualified in beauty?

7 years.

Which beauty treatment do you absolutely love doing?


Why do you love doing this treatment?

I enjoy doing facials as I love seeing the amazing results that can be achieved. Plus, I love the confidence boost it gives my clients when they see their skin looking rejuvenated and glowing.

I also enjoy doing eye & brow treatments such as an eyebrow wax, lash tint or LVL lashes.  When clients look in the mirror and can see how much these simple treatments have defined their eyes and highlighted their features is great.

What do you love about working at Melanie Richard's Hair & Beauty Salon in Peterborough?

I love the whole zen and the relaxing feeling there is in our beauty rooms. Plus, Melanie Richard’s Hair & Beauty salon uses my favourite skin care brand Elemis.

Which celebrity would you like to see walk into your salon?

Having had 3 children, I'm sure Beyoncé would love a relaxing full body massage!

If you had to live on a desert island, which three beauty products would you take with you?

Elemis Pro collagen marine cream, Rehydration ginseng toner and Papaya enzyme peel exfoliating mask.

To continue to learn lots of new skills and to keep up to date with the latest beauty treatments and techniques.

Friendly, good listener, caring
