December offer

Make up designed for you! 

9/12/17

Permanant (or semi permanant as it used to be known) make up is a wonderful thing if you need to save time each day! And don't we all?! 


An example of my most popular treatments are pictured here..


1 - digital machine brows, shown here in hair stroke style but also available in power brow, defined brow, textured or powdered brow, and ombre etc

2 - Lips - shown here as liner and heavy blush, but also available as liner only (really good for people who don't want a bright colour but would maybe just like there lip line defining in say a subtle nude colour!) Also liner and part blush or full colour too

3 - Eyeliner - bold or simple definition eyeliners can be done according to your needs.. it's shown here in black but we have a softer brown and also blue or a beautiful subtle purple which is gorgeous on certain eye colours really makes them pop 😍

4 - last but certainly not least is Microblading. Shown here with a more defined brow as this lady required quite a bold underline but this can be done as light or heavy as you like. Although microblading can produce other brow styles than hair strokes I feel it's best suited here and if your were looking for a more defined brow then a digital method may be a better option as microblading tends to heal softer. Its Also better suited for less oily skin types.


I am trained up to a very high level vtct 4 and attend many many masterclasses, and seminars etc so I can keep up to date with every latest style and technique.. we tailor your procedure to your very own needs. The way i see it, Everyone has different preferences for make up.. so why shouldn't this be the same 😍


And to make it even better, there's 20% off all permanant make up this month 😮


So why not make an appointment to come see me for a no obligation consultation and let's see how we could help you wake up with make up and save time every day!? Xxx 

We don't offer 'cheap' treatments.. 

We FIX 'cheap' treatments!

Sadly, due to a sudden flood in the market and the ease of obtaining a basic level qualification there has been a massive rise in correction requests across the entire industry. To perform procedures in a safe, legal way following good practice, government legislations and by laws and of course, ensuring you have the best quality products for your clients, costs money. Always remember when considering prices, that you are paying for your treatment standards. So when considering that most of these treatments are for areas on your face it is so important to consider this when deciding on a practitioner.

The current highest qualification available for these kind of services is a level 4 vtct, of which I hold. most practitioners are running on a diploma style certificate which is totally legal, but just does not come with a deeper understanding of the the skin, or a thorough knowledge of the colour corrections and removals that comes with a level 4.

The most common issue I face when people have approached me with requests to repair previous work from elsewhere, is poor pigment choices that have healed badly in the skin and given an unwanted tone. It takes a high level of skill to know what to do with these in order to repair the problem and not actually make it worse, and that same knowledge is useful to ensure I avoid these problems in the first instance for my own clients.

You can be assured that I always take my clients safety and product quality very seriously and I am trained up to the highest standard, with a very high level of first aid with ACT FAST, myself and my premises are fully licenced by the council and im a member of proffesional bodies such as The Guild and The Assosiation of Registered Aestheticians.

All of these extremely high standards are reflected in my prices. I would never cut corners in order to cut costs. I buy all my products from top standard suppliers that abide by rules from their governing body, and never ever from un solicited sellers from certain online marketplaces of which I shall not name..

It's your beautiful face at the end of the day and it's not worth risking 😘😘😘 x

Micro needling.. scary or not? 

4/1/18

 Just finished a lovely digital micro needling facial with one of my regular clients who was at first worried about trying it and I find it so hard to explain to people that it's not nearly as scary as it sounds so I thought I'd share a few points 💖


The correct digital micro needling can offer a fantastic improvement on some really stubborn skin conditions and really shouldnt be painful or be scary at all!


Lots of people think that dermarollers and digital micro needling are the same, they're not. As in the picture ive added, you can see the roller, due to its nature, creates a tiny v shapped trauma in the skin which creates higher risk of bleeding and a lot more down time as more trauma means more healing time. They are also typically quite painful ive gathered from hearing clients previous stories.

Digital micro needling however, is a direct and tiny multi 'stamp' so it creates far less of this trauma and therefore hardly any down time and no pain!

So because of this lack of trauma, Generally clients experiance no bleeding at all.


The type of digital micro needling I provide requires a higher standard of training to perform and as a technician I am fully trained in selecting the correct needle depth and type to suit your skin condition and needs so it really can be a bespoke treatment with much more flexibility.


Micro needling isn't just for facial benefits either, it can improve scar tissue and stretch marks etc all over the body! Treatment plans for these type issues can be built individually depending on area size and need.


There's also 20% off all facials this month so it's the best time to give it a try!! xx

23/2/18

 Be Fabulous Loved donating this box of special needs equipment to peacehaven heights school today ! as most of you know we have 2 special needs boys of our own so we have first hand experience with the kind of supoort they need, but schools budgets are being slashed constantly, services are being withdrawn all over, and special needs kit isnt cheap to buy!

So we here at Be Fabulous decided we could at least do a all be it small something to help at least a little .

So We're going with the whole pay it forward attitude and have purchased a few bits to give our own local school (I wish we could afford to do it for all of them lol) hopefully these won't just help our own kids but many more children there or yet to come :) xxx stay fabulous my lovelies! Every little helps 💖💖💖💖 xxx #payitforward #stayfabulous #everylittlehelps #ifweallhelpedalittle #helpsomeone

Charity fundraiser 

24/2/18

Hi every one,

so a few days ago, I saw a post on facebook about a beautiful charity called Abigail's Footsteps, they have already done some wonderful things, but they have recently been given the go ahead to create a Bereavement Suite at Brightons Royal Sussex County Hospital. They just need to raise the funds to do it!

its no secret that I too had to say goodbye to my Beautiful Daughter Charlie some 10 years ago now, and since reading there post I haven't stopped thinking about how tough that all was and how having such a facility may really help parents in the future having to sadly say goodbye to their precious ones, the picture of the room they have already created in Medway hospital is beautiful and looks homely and comforting. not clinical and empty like the room I had to say goodbye in. I cant see how this can be anything but good. my memories and pictures of our last hours with Charlie would be much nicer to look back on should we have been in a room like this.

many babies don't get to come home, but to feel the comfort of one in there last hours and for the time after, would be a true gift to the families and the little souls leaving them.

SO..... this led me on to wracking my brain to think of a way to help.. I could donate yes.. but I have a large following these days with the company and surely I could use that to help a bit more! which leads me to this event!

I and some LOVELY volunteers, will be working and supplying services with products totally free for the day. We will open the doors to all that want to come to get any of the treatmetns listed. You will still pay for your treatment, but at a reduced price, and ALL of the money will be going into the collection pot which at the end will be going straight to the charity! We will not be taking anything out for expenses, our time and products will be our donation.

It is a registered charity and totally above board and every penny raised that day will go to pay for the new suite.

so please come! get pampered and know that by doing so you have helped give something amazing to families to help them at the most difficult of times, there will be snacks and drinks, decent coffee and bubbles free for all that come along, and you can let us know when your coming or you can just drop in!

what an excuse to spoil yourself when its for such a good cause ;)

Here is the link to the even for all th detals : https://www.facebook.com/events/679179129139406/?ti=cl

Please click attending, like, share, do whatever you can! I cant make this a success withought you xxxxx

WERE EXPANDING!! 

23/4/18

WERE EXPANDING!!!

Be Fabulous is opening up a 2nd premises on the South Coast Road in Peacehaven!

Both spaces will be operational so there's no panic to those who like coming to our current space, especially for your evening slots as they will still continue just the same :)

Our new salon will comprise of 2 large areas, 1 for the more traditional hair and beauty treatments and the other room will be our new skin clinic for our ever growing Micro pigmentation, Aesthetics and Skin Specialist services. This room will also be our training room on my teaching days.

Currently I am always booked a minimum of a month in advance and that's with me squeezing people into any hours of the 7 days a week I can find haha! So I will have 2 gorgeous girls joining me 1 who is my long standing friend of 28 years (shhh I'm not that old really!) And the other is my sister in law. They are lovely ladies who have a similar 'queenhood' mind-set to me and who's work I truly trust with my precious Be Fabulous name or I wouldn't have asked them ;)

This will hopefully enable us to fit more of you in on those times when last min appointments are vital and I would normally have to say sorry but there's no space left and also a;llow us to take on many more clients with more working hours and space available :)

As you all know the need to expand has been with us for some time now but obviously when my boys were small there additional needs meant it wasn't suitable to take on a larger premises, and for the last year and half we were still battling with county to get them to let our Riley to go to school full time! That battle was won a few months ago and both boys are now settled full time so we are now finally in a more able position! Jp is in fact very excited to come and help in "the new shop" on the odd day in the holidays and earn some pocket money haha ;) he thinks he'll be good at taking coats and giving hand massages (let's see how long that lasts eh!) 


We are aiming for a slightly different feel to most salons and clinics.. I know you all love how welcoming our current setting is and I absolutely want to carry that through to our 2nd home!! It will be the most non intimidating, friendly, clean, and welcoming 'not salon' you can find!!


I've even already bought a TV, a 2nd Nespresso and a load of coffee pods (priorities eh haha!) So a decent cuppa tea or coffee and 5 mins for you to relax and catch up on some TV will still be a must!

 

Please bare with us while we refit the shop and get it up to Be Fabulous standards.. we will be having to work down there to get it done and still see all my wonderful lovely clients at the same time so we will be working as hard as we can to get it open ASAP as were very excited!


I'm sure we will have some sort of opening event for it with free bubbles, lots of cake, and open doors so you can all come have a nose ;) we will announce a date nearer the time!

Opening day!! 

17/6/18

Please join us for our fabulous opening day of our new premises! All welcome it's going to be a fantastic day!!! Xxx  

Another nomination!!  

17/6/18

We have had the honour of being nominated for another award!! The finals are being held next month so please cross your fingers for us for another win!!! 😍😍😍
