Meet the team!
We opened the ‘The Skin & Beauty Clinic’ in January 2018 by combining Monica’s ‘Skinpathy‘ business and ‘Nicola’s Beauty‘ business under one roof. As a salon team we provide a comprehensive range of Beauty and Skin Treatments, and we each bring our specific skills and expertise. We also hold specialist clinics in Aesthetics and Podiatry and have recently expanded our salon to the upstairs floor where we have space for 2 more treatment rooms and a designated ‘pamper zone’ and make-up station.
Here’s a little info on each of the team…
