Marie named her salon Grace as she wanted a name that depicted a calm, classy environment. Grace also happens to be the name of her daughter. Marie trained as a Beauty Therapist in the early 1980’s, qualifying in 1986 (IHBC / C&G). Her CV spans over three decades of experience. Starting as a salon therapist Marie developed her skills in one of the country’s top salons. She worked her way up achieving academic qualifications in teaching; (BA Dual Hons, PGCE) and has trained for several of the top beauty companies. After starting a family Marie became a lecturer in Beauty Therapy developing her career in education.
In recent years Marie has developed her own small business, regularly retraining to update her skills and qualifications. Following a personal trauma, Marie made the move from education and decided to take private beauty clients on a mobile basis and in a small treatment room that she set up in from a room within her home.
Over a short period of time her client base grew and it was decided to convert a large double garage, with a separate entrance overlooking a lovely garden. Since 2013 this unique little business base has grown from a one man band to an established small business. Marie was one of the first people to introduce classic eyelash extensions to the area over 10 years ago, Lycon Intimate waxing services 4 years ago and she has worked with the prestigious skin care brand, Dermalogica for over 25 years. Marie was one of the first 50 Dermalogica skin Experts within the UK, a highly prestigious award within the industry. In addition, Grace Beauty Therapies is one of Dermalogica’s Key accounts, and is proud to be one of only four Derm Circle PLATINUM award winning salons given to the top performing salons in the country.
Marie has chosen to work with, in her opinion, the best beauty brands in the industry. A great deal of research and training has gone into the set up and development of Grace Beauty Therapies to develop a lovely and comfortable environment, with top quality products, the latest technology, results driven product and electrical modality equipment.
Grace Beauty Therapies opens up a whole new challenge to grow and develop her business, allowing people to disconnect and relax. The salon Motto is MAKE TIME FOR YOU…..
