In 2009, I was the first black woman to own the first beauty salon in Parma. I established my reputation thanks to my knowledge and expert skills. But it’s my positive, kind and professional attitude that my clients came back for.
I found happiness and a healthy balance between a job I enjoyed and more time for my family. And in 2013, when my youngest daughter moved to London to pursue her career, I decided to join her. I realised that beauty treatments are easily provided anywhere in the world – the expertise and knowledge you gained are your own to keep. Starting again was an easy choice because I already had a lot to offer.
The first version of Good Hand Therapy in London was different from what it is now. It was much smaller and much harder to find. I rented a back room near Bethnal Green Station that I was told ‘was never going to work as a beauty salon’. Yet it did. I made it work. Three years later, I moved into my current location on Bethnal Green Road where I welcome clients every day to provide the best beauty treatments at a competitive price.
After 19 years of working in a beauty salon, I still love my job. I know that I’m lucky, but only because I created my own luck. Now I want to share everything I learnt along the way for people to discover their potential and thrive.
With Good Hand Therapy Academy, I offer specialised training for all level beauty therapists (and therapists-to-be!). With my training, you will excel in a fulfilling job and start earning an income as soon as the next day.
