I started in the Beauty Industry as a Saturday Girl when I was 14 years old. When I finished School I went straight to York college and completed Beauty Therapy NVQ Levels 2 and 3 through an Apprenticeship Scheme.


I then went on to further my education training and gaining experience in Dermalogica, Lash Perfect, CACI Facials and Gelish Hard Gel. I had reached the point where I wanted to further my career and take my own lead on decisions and development so I moved to a Salon based in Boston Spa becoming self employed renting a chair. The experience in a different element was an additional learning curve but the distance was too far for my regular clients to commute and this lead me to find accommodation in Tadcaster and launch Totally Polished.


My first premises for Totally Polished was on the one way system comprising an open plan double room. This was a perfect situation for starting up my business, plans and goals. I took further education in Lash Treatments with Lash Perfect in Russian Lashes and LVL Lashes with Nouveau. Totally Polished went from strength to strength and presented me my dream opportunity of a much larger Salon, where I am located today, at 15 High Street, Tadcaster, LS24 9AP. Having a much larger premises I am now in a position to have renting space for more therapists and more treatments.


I continue running and working in the Salon focusing on Nail and Lash treatments. My absolute passion is Nail Art which has become a great hit with my clients. I have taken part in specialised Nail Art Courses, Social Media Nail Workshops along with other Nail Technicians across the Country. In my ever increasing drive to further my education and knowledge, during lockdown I completed my Level 3 Award in Education and Training and I am now qualified to Teach Beauty Courses for which I am trained in. Thus Totally Polished Training Academy was formed now making my business heading of Totally Polished Beauty Salon & Training Academy. The Academy is situated within the Salon on Sundays when the main Salon is closed. I offer Accredited Courses in Nail and Lash Treatments enabling you to start out on your own career path. I also offer Nail Art Masterclasses stepping up your creative skills and educating yourself on the most popular looks of the season.
