My name, as you will have probably guessed is 'Sarah Johnson' but who is she you may be thinking in a tone like Nikki Graham from Big Brother!? (loved that series!) well I am a wife, and a mum of 2 girls aged 5 and 1 from Yarm, Teesside and I have worked in the Beauty Industry for 15 years. (Yikes! That makes me feel so old)
I left school at 16 and went straight Kirby College and began my NVQ in Beauty Therapy. After a matter of weeks I was transferred to an Apprenticeship and got the dream of being able to gain salon experience whilst training and I loved meeting clients and working in a salon environment. After qualifying, I took an opportunity to run the Beauty side of a brand new up and coming Anti ageing clinic in Darlington and it was here I had the chance to train in more advanced treatments such as Microdermabrasion and Microcurrent and also where my love for skincare and anti ageing treatments began.
After a couple of years there, I decided I was ready for more and with the encouragement from my now husband Anthony, I found a beauty room to rent in a hair salon. I was just 19 years old! This seemed a good stepping stone and not as daunting as a full salon but after a few months I realised I'd made a mistake and the location didn't suit me or my clients and I knew I had to find alternative premises or i'd risk loosing all of my loyal clients I had gained.
After a bit of a frantic search I found a perfect location on the High Street in Yarm and enjoyed 6 successful years there before deciding to sell up and start up my home salon after the birth of my first daughter in 2015. Working from home allows me to have much more flexibility around my family as well as giving my clients a more exclusive and private experience.
I won awards with Matis Paris for Highly Commended in 2015, Therapist of The Year and Gold Salon of the Year in 2016 and that gave me the confidence to follow my passion and to specialise in Facials and Skincare treatments.
We moved into our dream home in 2019, I had my perfect salon built with a separate access, waiting area, customer toilet and huge treatment room. I absolutley love it and feel so very lucky to have this space in my home.
I have been looking for a range of home fragrance for the last few years and after trying lots of variations, I was always left disappointed when they didn’t burn well or when the fragrance wasn’t very strong.
I fell in love with the presentation firstly when I first came across Ma Lumiere online and straight away thought they were special. I love the fact they are created by Guillaume rather than a mass company and on meeting him via video call could instantly tell he has great passion and I resonated with his perfectionism on every level.
My clients are thrilled I am offering the products and the feedback has been so positive about both the quality of the products and the value.
