Lauren

Welcome to our Mia Carmen Website.  My name is Lauren and I am the owner of Mia Carmen here at David Lloyd. I have over 10 years experience within the beauty industry and having worked at one of the UKs leading spas. This inspired me to create a haven of my own to offer high quality treatments to those in need of advice, guidance and relaxation.

Taking the plunge into opening the salon was a huge leap of faith for me and I am lucky enough to have enjoyed every minute. We have a fantastic team of therapists here with a wealth of knowledge but particularly a desire to help our clients achieve anything they want to whether it be a relaxed state of mind, a rejuvenated skin, or head turning nail colours!

One of the treatments I'm most excited about in our salon  is the recently added  pre natal pregnancy massage - a deep back exfoliation followed by a full massage including bump and scalp.  85 minutes of pure bliss for the mummies to be! 

If you haven't yet experienced our salon we hope to welcome you soon.

Steph

Hi I am Steph, I qualified as a Beauty Therapist 7 years ago. 

I am very passionate about my profession and enjoy all aspects of the beauty industry.

The treatment I enjoy doing most is Bio Sculpture nails/gel nails as I feel I make a real difference and see clients walk out with more confidence. I really like advising bio-sculpture gel to clients who don't get longer than 2 weeks without their gel nails chipping or peeling.  Bio-sculpture lasts around 3-4 weeks with no chipping and is a real breakthrough for people. 

It's great for nail biters to get their length back! 

I am qualified and experienced in many treatments, and am continually gaining qualifications in new treatments. I now offer LVL enhancement lashes, which I look forward to doing more of and seeing the amazing results in my clients. This is a treatment I love to have myself and am amazed at how my natural lashes look once they've been lifted! 

I hope I'll see you in the salon soon and can tell you more about the treatments we love. 

 
  
 

Kat

Hi, my name is Kat and I have been a Beauty Therapist with Mia Carmen since it opened in September 2013. I have over 10 years experience working within the Beauty industry using a wide variety of treatments and products. 

I enjoy all treatments that Mia Carmen have to offer but I particularly enjoy facials. The one I'm most passionate about is our crystal clear microdermabrasion. In the years I've been doing this treatment I've noticed a real difference in my clients' complexions. 

The results straight after the treatment are extremely visible which is why I love it so much. I enjoy helping people reach their objectives when looking after and improving their skin. 

If you're looking for something a little more delicate then the ESPA skin solutions facial is also a favourite.  

I love the ESPA range because a lot of thought and research goes into each individual product which is why it's one of the most popular brands. I love working at Mia Carmen because I'm part of a lovely, supportive team. 

The salon is a relaxing, tranquil environment to go into each shift. I look forward to seeing you all soon when you book in.

Liberta

 My name is Liberta and I am the Salon Manager at Mia Carmen where I have been  for 4 years now, after working my way up from Salon Receptionist.

Coming to Mia Carmen was a big change for me as I had never worked in the Beauty industry. My background was within travel and leisure. 

 As well as managing the staff and operations of the salon I am also fully trained in LVL Lash Enhancement which I qualified to do in March 2017. This is my very first treatment  that I offer at Mia Carmen. I enjoy doing them as I find it peaceful being in a room for an hour which is a lovely break from the busy role that I have as Salon Manager and I also get to meet clients and find out more about them. I love to talk so this is a perfect opportunity for me.  Its also lovely to see people's reactions when they can't believe what we have created with their natural lashes.

 When I'm not doing LVL you will find me out in the salon on the desk greeting and making our clients feel welcomed to Mia Carmen. If you haven't visited us yet I hope we will see you in the salon in the future.

Jess

Hi, my name is Jess and I have been the apprentice at the salon since February 2017.  I'm really enjoying learning the wide variety of treatments we provide. 

I am now fully qualified, competent and confident in all the ESPA treatments we offer and also trained and qualified in intimate waxing.  

So far my favourite treatment is pedicures because I know how relaxing they really are. 

We have an inbuilt pedicure chair so we really make sure all the dead skin is removed and you can sit back and enjoy a relaxing foot and leg massage! I like to go above and beyond and make the most of this part of the treatment. 

It's amazing how much tension people hold in their feet. Men can enjoy this treatment too and being located in a gym we often provide the foot massage to marathon runners! 

I joined the team in February 2017 and I really do love it.  One of my favourite things about the salon is meeting new people and getting to know them and I'm always really happy when they ask to book in with me again as I feel I've done a good job. I'm really looking forward to seeing all the familiar faces and of course the new ones. 


I have almost completed my in-house training, so it would be great if you'd like to book in and help me along with my Beauty Therapist journey.
