Meet Your Therapists
Andrea – Manager / Therapist
I have 20 years in the industry and I’m one of The Beauty Factory’s four Dermalogica Experts. The Dermalogica skin treatments are my absolute favourite, I love the way each treatment is different and tailored to the clients concerned on that day. My favourite product has to be Agesmart Cleanser, it leaves your skin feeling so clean and glowing. I love my job because I work in a very professional salon with a great group of therapists. I get huge satisfaction from seeing results from all the fantastic treatments I do.
Rebecca – Manager / Therapist
I have been at The Beauty Factory for 4 years now. My passion is the skin, with always having skin problems myself, I know how benefical the correct skin care routine and facials can make to the skin. I love the results you can get and how it makes my clients fell more confident. Being a Dermalogica expert and CACI trained I can always give my clients the best treatment & product advice. Starting my beauty career in the spa industry, I have worked with several other skincare brands which gives me even greater knowledge. My favourite product is Dermalogica Precleanse as you should always remove your make-up correctly. Enriched with vitamins A,C, E it leaves your skin feeling nourished and amazing.
Gillian – Managing Director / Therapist
I worked in a local salon for two years before setting up The Beauty Factory, after two previous locations in Blyth we moved to Havelock Street 20 years ago. Although I don’t get the opportunity to carry out treatments very often, I’m a fully qualified therapist, completing four years training (a few years ago !). We’ve had lots of changes over the years and endeavour to keep up with the latest treatments and techniques and have some state of the art equipment. Of course I love everything we provide but my favourite treatments and products have to be the CACI facial toning and anti-ageing treatments, along with the Dermalogica Agesmart range.
Nicola – Therapist
I have 3 years experience in the beauty industry and have already achieved my Dermalogica expert status. I’m very passionate about the glamorous side of my job, nails, brows and lashes, but mainly make-up. I have an advanced artistry qualifications from bareMinerals and love all of their products. My favourite product is a hard choice as I love so many, but at the minute it has to be Jessica Phenom Varnish. It dries in ten minutes and finishes like a gel polish but can be taken off easily, like a nail varnish. I love my job because every day is different and I’m able to give clients the best possible knowledge and advice, it’s really satisfying having clients leave the salon happy every time.
Rachel – Therapist
After my first beauty job I completed specialised massage training and became an advanced spa therapist at a local spa, this was when I developed my love of massage, especially hot stones. I’ve been at The Beauty Factory over 10 years and what I enjoy most is being able to do such a wide variation of treatments, it keeps me and my clients interested, up to date with new, up & coming treatments and products. I enjoy everything from gel nails, IPL and Dermalogica skin treatments to massage, making my clients feel totally pampered and relaxed.
Courtney – Therapist
I’m a level 3 qualified therapist and have been working at The Beauty Factory for over a year Some of my favourite treatments are nails & brows. I like doing the Brows by Mii treatment as you can see such a big difference and improvement, it’s great seeing a happy client because you’ve made a positive change to their look. My favourite product is bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, it’s made a huge improvement to my skin, giving me the coverage I want and hydrating my face at the same time. If you suffer from dehydrated skin and wear makeup I would definitely recommend it. I also like using Dermalogica Precleanse to remove any make-up. I love my job for many reasons, I’m happy when I can see improvements with treatments I have carried out on my clients.
