Carrie

Be treated like a star at pinx beauty salonThe proud owner of Pinx

I'm Carrie, the founder and owner of Pinx, I decided to venture into the beauty industry 11 years ago and found our first premises in 2005. I trained in nail enhancements - acrylic, Biogel, manicures, pedicures, minx nails & spray tanning.

We moved to Worry goose Lane in 2007 and since then we have built up a loyal and extensive client base. I'm very lucky to have an amazing and devoted team to work with, we all have different strengths and deliver to the highest standard and most importantly have fun.

In June 2014 I trained with Gemma Lambert who is 12 times Uk Nail Champion & International Nail Technician of the year 2013. The skills and techniques I developed from the course have given me the ability to create outstanding acrylic nails with a difference. I love transforming hands with the art of acrylics and biogels, there's so much you can achieve to ensure your clients leave feeling pampered and special.

In my spare time I love early morning running as it helps clear my mind and energizes me for the day ahead.

In 2013 along with my Mum and a close family friend we founded START-A-HEART24:7, making defibrillators accessible 24/7. Raising funds to help supply the access safes to store the Defibrillator where there are no other means, to ensure 24 hours a day 7 days a week access. To find out more visit www.start-a-heart.org.uk.

I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to be involved in such a worthy cause.

I look forward to welcoming you to Pinx!

 

Louise

Be treated like a star at pinx beauty salon Manager and Beauty Therapist

Hi I’m Louise and I am the Senior Therapist/Salon Manager at Pinx. I have been in the beauty industry now for over 12 years, after completing my NVQ level 2 and 3 in beauty therapy at Rother Valley College, where at the same time I qualified as a hairdresser. I have worked with Carrie at Pinx for over 8 years, having worked in other salons previously.

I absolutely love my job, and I am so lucky to work in such a friendly and professional salon. At Pinx every day is different, I get to carry out such a variety of treatments on all of my clients old and new and I am lucky enough to love every aspect of my job role. I feel very honoured to have built up such a fantastic loyal client base over the years, who more often than not become friends too. The best thing about being a Beauty Therapist is the feeling of making my clients feel pampered and special every time they come to see me for their treatments.

At Pinx we use Dermalogica, which is the number 1 leading skin care brand in the UK and worldwide. I have been on a number of courses with the company over the years and have successfully worked my way up to becoming a Dermalogica Skin Care Specialist. I now look forward to beginning my courses to take me to an expert level next year. I love educating my clients on their skincare needs, seeing the results we can achieve with a face treatment and a good homecare regime, let me face map your skin today!! My favourite nail treatment is Bio Sculpture gels, which is the original everlasting manicure. I can achieve a stunning set of gel nails on either long or short nails with a colour or French, these are a must for any special occasion or holiday.

My favourite hobby is dancing, I am part of a local dancing school where I have been going since a very young age and even now I still love taking part in yearly shows at the local theatre. Out of work I love spending time with my boyfriend, family and friends, whether it be going shopping, to the cinema, out for meals and drinks, entertaining my niece or having nice holidays, I always try to have fun, be sociable and keep smiling. I look forward to seeing you soon at Pinx.

 

Natalie

Be treated like a star at pinx beauty salonBeauty Therapist

Hello, My Name is Natalie and I am a therapist here at Pinx. I started as a trainee, working at the salon in my spare time as a junior whilst still at school and gradually building up various skills. I really enjoy the environment of my work place and love working with such enthusiastic work colleagues, who have supported me no end throughout my training at Pinx and without them I would not be the therapist I am today.

I graduated after doing my level 3 from Oracle Training consultants in August 2012! Since then I have expanded my learning & knowledge, going on several Dermalogica courses aiming to become a Dermalogica Skin Care Specialist.

I love nails & nail art! I love making my clients happy, the more sparkles the better of course as I feel it definitely reflects my personality. However if a classic look is what you desire I'm more than happy to create this for you .

Another love of mine is makeup & eyelashes! (you will never catch me without them!)
Bridal make-up, prom makeup and evening makeup, you name it I love to do it.
Let me glam you up for your next occasion!

The best thing about Pinx is meeting new people, but also becoming friends with regular clients. I look forward to meeting you in the future and hope the treatments you have are beyond your expectations.

 

Liam

Be treated like a star at pinx beauty salonCreative Stylist

Hello, I'm Liam, and I am the Creative Stylist at Pinx!

I have always had a creative flair, which shows in my appearance, having loved experimenting with my own hair I knew as soon as I finished school this would be my destiny! I began training as a hairdresser at Embrace Hairdressing Academy, where I became level 2 and 3 qualified. I was recognised for my skills and commitment by receiving student of the year in 2010. In addition I have also completed advanced colour training with L'Oreal in Leeds and have been on various advanced Wella courses. I love to keep updated with the latest trends and fashions so I can then bring them into salon!

I love playing to try out the latest colour and cutting techniques on the more daring clients but I also love the regular clients that I have come to know and love!! One thing I really love about this job is the range of people you meet and get to talk to from the young children coming in for their first cuts all the way to the older ladies coming for their blow dries!

Carrie and I also visited a ProHairLive show in 2014 and I hope to attend more hair dressing shows each year when possible as they are a great insight into all of the latest products and techniques available at the moment. We also watched seminars on hair ups and specifically bridal hair, which I found extremely beneficial with Pinx starting our wedding call out service in 2014. I love making someone look and feel amazing on their special day.

When I am not in salon I love nothing more than catching up with friends and seeing my family, whether it be going out for drinks or food and going on nice walks in the countryside.

I look forward to transforming your hairstyle for you soon and giving you the desired look you have always wanted at Pinx, see you all very soon!
