Josephine – Owner
I qualified as a beauty therapist 25 years ago. My parents are my inspiration and they have always made me feel anything is possible (apart from singing …… because I’m just dreadful) Therefore at a young age I opened Josephine Health and Beauty Studio and never looked back. The best part of my job is making a client feel good about themselves, whether that’s from an encouraging comment to transforming a client’s skin. I meet people from all walks of life and find people so interesting. We are fortunate enough to have such lovely clients and that’s probably why I remain a hands-on therapist.
I know it’s a cliché, but I love all beauty treatments, my perfect day would be a mixture of treatments. The thing I dislike most is emptying the foot spa because I always seem to spill some water!
I am very proud we have gained Guinot Crown salon status and this great achievement is because of my wonderful team. Exceptional staff are like gold dust and I am very lucky to have them.
I lead a very busy life, like most of us but now I’m over 40 I am making myself go to the gym and regularly attend a Pilates class for my poorly back. Turning 40 was a real eye opener to me. I became more aware of my skin and the dreaded wrinkles (or fine lines as we try to call them!)I follow a Guinot skincare routine because I truly believe a glowing healthy skin looks beautiful whatever your age. My favourite treatment to have is the Guinot Hyderderm Facial it makes my skin feel amazing and I really should make more effort to have one more often. Socially I love to go to nice restaurants and enjoy walking my little dog – called Peppa. I love spending time with my family, when we get together we have way too much fun!
Without doubt my greatness achievement in life is my 3 girls and they have made me so rich in happiness. They are at times moody teenagers but most of the time they are just fab.
Luan – Salon Manager
I have been at the salon for 16 years now, practically part of the furniture! My proudest achievement has got to be being a mother to two amazing daughters. The eldest of 17 years old was not even 1 when I joined Josephine’s and in this ever growing social media world, are both conscious about their looks and the latest trends which definitely keeps me on my toes.
My biggest passion is making sure all our clients are greeted with a friendly smile and made to feel special. Good customer service is I hope what keeps our regular customers coming back as well as the amazing job all our therapist do. One of my favourite parts of my job is being guinea pig to the girls testing out new treatments. If I had to pick my favourite treatments it would be pedicures and hot stone massages. I love having pretty toes especially gels which last for ages! And as for hot stones, you need to try them to believe how relaxing and tension releasing they make you feel. You will definitely float out of the salon!
Jessica – Senior Therapist
I have been a qualified Beauty therapist for 8 years now after achieving a level 3 NVQ from Aylesbury college, since then I have furthered my knowledge with other certificates including; Guinot body and skin care, Ellipse IPL semi permanent hair removal, Shellac and Jane Iredale mineral makeup. My true passion within the industry is skincare I love helping clients map out their home-care routines and treatment plans to achieve their goals. My favourite treatment is Guinot’s Hydraderm Cellular Energy as it has been revolutionary in the industry by enabling us to tailor each facial to the clients needs and getting long term benefits. It’s great to see them between each treatment looking more confident. A few of my hobbies and interests include as you might guess, new products and treatments trends, country walks, cycling and the odd bit of kareoke! I have known Josephine for about 7 years now and admire the passion she has for her Salon which is why it’s such a supportive but also friendly place to work! We are always looking for new and interesting treatments to offer and enjoy going on further training courses to practise on each other!
Georgia – Beauty Therapist
Since completing my beauty training at Amersham and Wycombe college in 2015 in Level 2 and 3, I have gone onto further courses including Guinot and Nouveau Lashes training in LVL and Extend. I have a general passion for beauty I have always been one to have treatments done on a regular basis! Since training in Guinot it has become my all time favourite skin care range I have found it suits my skin just lovely and it has improved the condition so much. I love making people look beautiful, feel relaxed and wonderful in a warming environment.
