Hello everyone! My name is Aimee, I am 20 years old & and around a year ago I qualified to be a Nail Technician. I have been a lover of all things beauty for as long as I can remember and this is why I decided to take the plunge & set up my own business. Now, one year later I am proud to be the owner of The Beauty Lab.
"Currently, I am a one-woman show, but over the next 12 months I plan to expand my business and the treatments on offer."
My goal is for The Beauty Lab to be every girl's idea of heaven, a 'one-stop-shop' for clients to come and get whole package, Brows, Lashes, Hair & facial treatments.
My focus for this year will be to train in an extensive range of Brow treatments & following that, I’d like to train to provide facial treatments. My first love is and always will be nails… the creativity that you have with each set is endless.
"I specialise in freehand nail art, so every set I do is like creating a piece of art. Some clients are braver than others but with a little nudge, I can usually persuade them to push their boundaries a little."
Not only do I love the creative side of my job but also the social side, very quickly clients become my friends. When you sit in my chair, I get to hear all about your life, your work & be there to help you through tough times, I'm there through the laughter and the tears.
In the last 12 months I have worked from home and following that in a salon, but I am happy to announce that I’ll be opening the doors to my very own salon, as soon as government restrictions allow, hopefully from Saturday the 4th of July. I can't wait to get started and to welcome you into my new home.
The Coronavirus Pandemic has been such a major set back for many businesses in the UK, but it has allowed me the opportunity to set out my plans for the future and explore making press on nails for all my clients, new and old, who have been struggling without their beauty essentials.
The Beauty Lab will be based on a busy street in the heart of Melton Mowbray, in Leicestershire (the exact address of the salon will be revealed very soon on my Instagram). I will be looking to grow our brand, and take on other beauty therapists with passion and drive, possibly within the next year.
We are an appointment only salon, I am currently operating a waiting list for when we are allowed to open our doors! Those who would like to join me on this exciting new adventure and book an appointment can direct message me on instagram and I’ll add you to the list. If you'd like to follow me and The Beauty Lab, head over to our page and we'll keep you up to date with all the latest salon information. I hope to meet you very soon!
