As a Beauty Therapist, waxing has always been the treatment that I have carried out the most since I started in the beauty industry in 2010. Almost 11 years ago and I can remember coming at my friends and family with zero confidence! I honestly don’t know how they let me near them!! They continued to do so and as my confidence became stronger I developed a great passion for this treatment. People always ask me “Is it because you get to inflict pain on people?!!” the answer is NO!! I love waxing because of its instant results and it’s a treatment that can change peoples confidence about themselves. Hair is a major problem for some people and working with so many cultures here in Dublin and Vancouver, Canada, I really learned this.
I worked as a Beauty Therapist in an amazing and very busy hair and beauty salon here in Dublin. It built me into a great therapist with great confidence so this helped me when I decided to leave Ireland and go traveling. I lived and worked abroad for almost 2 1/2 years and my first job was working in a waxing salon. The salon was the sponsored waxing salon for the famous Chippendale’s who have a residency in the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. We had all kinds of clients from strippers to burlesque dancers as well as so many people from every culture in the world even young teenagers and kids, as people are getting hairier a lot younger. So I learned a lot as I waxed both female and male bodies from head to toe! This has given me great confidence with this treatment and now I am in a position to offer both female and male clients a professional and comfortable waxing experience and provide as much education to help look after their hair and skin. Once the fear of waxing is gone it can make such a difference to our body. Thick hair becomes thinner and bumpy red skin from shaving disappears. When consistently done which is every 4-6 weeks it gets easier as the hair growth starts to slow down and thin out.
I’m taking all the knowledge I’ve learned from every client and every salon I’ve worked in and want to offer my clients a comfortable and affordable experience.
I am also a qualified Holistic Massage Therapist and I really love Holistic Therapies so I have included these treatments within my salon. There are so many benefits with these therapies that can help people to de-stress, loosen muscle tension and relieve inflammation. I have worked with clients on their concerns and have seen positive and effective results.
