My name is Julia and I am a beautician and Make-up artist and have been in the industry for over 16 years. I love my job and the fact that every day is different. I am a total skin geek and therefore love providing all skin treatments but in particular using our advance techniques such as our skin needling and chemical peels. I've suffered with acne my whole life and love able to help people really struggling with their skin. I also specialise in bridal and evening make- up and have travelled all over the world supporting couples on heir biggest day. Our One Lounge family is so unique we inspire and support each other and coming to work is like a night in with the girls. Our clients our part of that family. I've had many of the same clients since I began my career16 years ago. When I'm not in the salon I teach for Glasgow Clyde college and love inspiring the future generation of therapists. My favourite treatment to have is a skin SOS treatment. To see my skin at it's optimum post treatment is something that never gets old.
I have been a part of the one lounge family for nearly 3 years now. I love working in a salon where the work is really varied and every single day is exciting. Our team in the one lounge is really the best team I’ve ever worked in, we all work hard and are more like family and friends to each other and our clients. Our team and talent is a testament to our owner Julia’s hard work and dedication to keeping us all up to date with the best training.
The last three years I have personally had such exciting training opportunities from training with Lycon wax, nova lash for American volume lashes, nail extensions in both calgel and acrylic and nail art training and all of this training was with the best brands on the market and the most talented trainers in our industry.
My favourite treatments to carry out are nails with nail art on natural nail or extensions, semi permanent or volume lashes, intimate waxing, spray tanning and brow lamination. I was a full time photographer before studying beauty and I decided to split my time between both after finishing my HND in beauty. As such, I just love anything creative so most of my favourite treatments are aesthetic, but I do also love when someone really needs a relaxation treatment during a stressful time and you get to be a part of helping alleviate their stress and tension.
My favourite treatments to have done are massage, tan, brow lamination and volume lashes. Having tan, lashes and my brows done really boosts my confidence. Massage is something I try to do every four weeks to maintain the health of my back, which in our industry is really important.
In my own time I love spending time with my two chihuahuas and my husband. My two dogs are full of mischief and madness so they keep me busy.
My favourite part of my job is being part of such a lovely team, being friends and confidante of my clients and getting to really submerge myself in creativity from day to day. Every single day in our industry is different and we learn all the time as new treatments and trends emerge. Keeping my creative brain constantly on the go! :)
