Get to know Julie

February 17 2017

Hi guys! Over the past couple of weeks, you’ve got to know Charlotte and Sophia, and finally it’s my turn to let you know a little bit about me. I’m Julie, and I’ve been working at Cardiff Beauty Clinic since September 2016. With over 30 years experience in the industry, I am Head of Beauty and Head of Training within the clinic.

One of my specialities is intimate waxing. A lot of women are uncomfortable with being exposed, but there’s really nothing to worry about. You can trust me when I say I’ve seen it all before. Just tell me where you’d like to be hair free, and I’ll use our luxury wax blend and specially developed techniques to give you super-smooth results, super fast. If you have left the hair to grow for the recommended timescale (4 weeks), you will get a couple of weeks hair free before you start to see any regrowth. This will be minimal compared with shaving, and you won’t feel the itchy uncomfortable regrowth coming through. Typically, you won’t feel like you need another wax until week 4. After your very first wax you may see regrowth a little sooner but the more you wax with us, your hair will be in the correct regrowth cycle to get a couple of weeks hair free from each treatment – perfect for your summer holiday!

I also specialise in lash lift, tinting and lash extensions. A lash lift is a great, more natural way to create a subtle difference to your flutter. An advancement on the old fashioned “lash perm”, our new specially created silicone pads lift the lashes from the root to create a subtle, natural looking lift which gives the illusion of length and makes the eyes appear more open. They also last for two months or longer depending on your lash cycle! But for special occasions, lash extensions are the way to go. We use Hollywood Lashes, handmade lashes with a soft curl that made of a synthetic single fibre polyester thread-like material. These lashes give more of an impact, creating a fuller, longer look, giving definition and transforming the eye. Our lashes are available in various lengths, colours and thickness, so we can customise your look to your preference, whether it be natural for a wedding or summer holiday, or full-on glamour for an event or party.

My last speciality is nails. I love to create different nail art whether it’s something classic or something out there. With the power of Instagram, nail trends are ever changing, so there’s always something new to learn! I use Gelish, a gel polish which lasts up to 3 weeks on natural nails or over acrylic. The polish is cured in an LED lamp so there’s no waiting for it to dry and no smudging.

The final thing I thought I’d mention is our clinic’s latest treatment, Fibroblast, an all natural facelift. I recently had the treatment and can’t believe how amazing it is! I highly recommend checking out our Fibroblast page where you can get all the info.

You can find before and after photos of my client’s lash transformations and nail art on our FacebookTwitter and Instagram. You’ll also find before and afters of our Fibroblast treatment so make sure you check us out!
