    Beauty Therapist Dermalogica Specialist
    Days: Tues, Thu, Fri, Sat

    It inspires me to know that in today’s hectic busy lifestyle, I can help people feel relaxed, rejuvenated and maintained. After qualifying in Beauty Therapy, I have worked in a number of local salons in the Didsbury area and so have built up a long string of clientele over the past few years.I believe I have a nice one to one rapport with each of my clients and make them feel very comfortable when they are having a treatment done with me.

    I have gained valuable experience in the retail market working for some of the best skincare brands such as Dermalogica and Pevonia and in order to keep me refreshed and up to date with new skin care i attend regular dermalogica courses every couple of months.
    We stock a full range of the Dermalogica at Ugly Betty’s,which is made available after a rejunvenating facial.

    Emma Taylor

    Hair Stylist
    Days: Tue, Wed, Thu, Fri, Sat

    It’s true, I do love my job. No two days are the same, how can they be? I work with people. Every client presents me with something new, and I love working with a team who are so creative and good fun to be around. My main passion in hairdressing is colour. I love how it can change a hairstyle and add definition to a haircut. Colour is more powerful than we realise.

    I like to work with the seasons going for cool blondes or shimmering gold’s in the warmer months, changing to smoother, spicier tones during the autumn and winter.  I have worked in hairdressing for over 7 years now and am always eager to futher my hairdressing knowledge.
