This month’s Therapist of the Month is the lovely Louise, from Concept Hair and Beauty in Fife. After being nominated by her supportive boss, we were won over by Louise’s absolute passion for her job and the fact that she has just been promoted to salon manger, as well as being head beauty therapist! We caught up with Louise to ask her about her career…
Congratulations Louise! How does it feel to be our October Therapist of the Month?
I feel very surprised at being therapist of the month, slightly overwhelmed too but really happy to have won!
Tell us who nominated you and why?
My boss, Helena, nominated me. She never told me she was doing it until she found out I had won! But Helena is always praising me for what I do and always shows appreciation – I’m lucky to have a boss like Helena really.
You’ve just been promoted…tell us a little bit about your journey in beauty…
I have yes…I studied for 3 years to become a beauty therapist and enjoyed every minute. I came to Concept Hair and Beauty 3 years ago and fell in love with the salon from the moment I walked in. I absolutely love my job and I’m always eager to learn new things. In the past 3 years I have worked my way up to the top and would never look back. If you love your job it makes such a difference and passion always shines through. You’re more likely to be successful in a career you enjoy.
What is it you love about working with Sienna X?
I love Sienna and so do my clients – stayed tuned for my blog post later this month on the importance of carefully choosing which brands you work with! I love the different tans you can get with Sienna, to achieve the right colour for each client, especially now we have what I like to call the ‘fast tans,’ Tonight’s the Night and 1 hour High Intensity Tan.
What’s been your most memorable moment so far in your career?
That’s a hard one as I’ve many memorable moments so far! If I had to choose though, it would be when I was promoted to salon manager! It was a very proud moment.
What would be your biggest tip for someone thinking about starting in spray tanning?
Honestly? Just go for it! The scariest step is always getting started, but you can’t go wrong! Make sure you choose a good training course and then be confident – practice, practice, practice. Sienna X is a great brand to work with as they have a great selection of tanning products, whether you’re looking to have a sun kissed look or wanting that extra coverage for party nights. It’s great!
Finally – if you were on a desert island and you could only take 1 Sienna X product, which one would it be and why?
Express Tanning Mist…I LOVE it! I use it every week because it’s streak free, easy to apply and doesn’t smell.
