A BIT ABOUT US...
Welcome to Bloom Skin and Beauty Boutique!
We offer professional beauty treatments, advanced skincare services and appearance medicine together with a wide range of salon exclusive beauty products. Established in Karaka, Auckland in 2011, we have recently moved into our new space - a custom built boutique clinic, conveniently located just over the road from where we were. A few minutes off the Southern Motorway in Karaka, with plenty of parking, Bloom is the perfect place to relax and indulge in some well deserved pampering.
If you want to get serious about your skin, or just unwind and rejuvenate we are here to help. As an established salon we really love to ‘wow’ our clients with our high standards and passion for what we do. All of our qualified therapists can help you with any of your beauty therapy needs. We have specialised equipment to provide in-depth analysis and can treat your skin whilst recommending the correct home support to maintain our salon treatments.
We are happy to discuss your concerns around skincare and beauty and will customise our treatments to achieve the best result for you. Book your appointment today!
MEET THE TEAM...
Salon Owner and Senior Aesthetician
After 16 years involvement in the beauty industry, this salon is an amalgamation of everything I have learned. Juggling three boys and family life is always a challenge, but winning the 2013 New Zealand Salon of the Year and Business Development Award was a great reward for all our hard work. From my years as a skincare consultant with Estee Lauder to training to be a beauty therapist, 11 years as a qualified aesthetician and my work as a professional make-up artist, I just love being able to help clients look and feel great every time they visit us.
After graduating top of my class from Elite School of Beauty Therapy in 2008, I decided to continue my study and completed a Spa Therapy Post-Graduate course with Elite while working part-time as a Therapist at a well-known salon. The completion of my study resulted in a job offer with Elite teaching facial therapies and waxing. I have had two sons in between study and work, and maintained and built on my skill level throughout. I am highly passionate about what I do and decided, after my role as teacher with Elite, that I wanted to get back to ‘hands on’ beauty therapy here at Bloom. I love pampering clients with customised facials and reshaping and defining eyebrows.
After graduating in 2004 I worked at a small local salon for a little over a year refining my basic beauty skills. From there I moved to a much larger Medi Spa and over the next seven years I undertook a number of post-graduate advanced courses before going on maternity leave. My two darling girls
are now 3 and 1. As a therapist my passion is corrective skin treatments. As an adolesent, I suffered from acne, eczema and hormonal issues and I understand how much skin issues can affect a person’s self-esteem. My key interest area is nutrition, exercise and health. My absolute favourite part of this job is Brow-Sculpting - the lift it can bring to a face is phenomenal!
I graduated from the Beauty Therapy College of NZ in 2005 with diploma's in aesthetics, body therapy and electrology. Afterward I worked at a small salon in East Auckland where I built on my experience and was introduced to the world of advanced skin treatments and cosmeuceutical skincare. I became very passionate about helping people with their skin and at my next job managing a salon in St Heliers I started focusing on and learning about the importance of nutrition and how it directly relates to skin health. Providing your body with optimal nutrition is not only a game changer for your skin but it can change your life!
I have a little girl now and love working at Bloom around looking after her.
I graduated in 2004 at the prestigious Joyce Blok beauty therapy school and began my career at a top end salon in Manukau. After five years working and gaining experience, I moved to Australia and further developed my knowledge of beauty etiquette and advanced skin treatment. I spent seven years polishing my skills and then returned home to New Zealand and started working with a specialist laser clinic. Though I enjoyed the work, I realised my passion truly lies in the therapeutic side of beauty. Here I am now at Bloom, looking forward to helping our clients achieve their beauty goals. So whether it’s a simple brow shape or an advanced treatment, trust that you will be in very safe, knowledgeable and caring hands.
After 10 years in the banking industry I decided to pursue my long-held dream of becoming a Beauty Therapist. I studied with Elite International School of Beauty, graduating at the top of my class and also completed three international qualifications with CIDESCO (Comité International d'Esthétique et de Cosmétologie) one of which I again achieved with distinction. Outside of work and study I love spending quality time with my partner and our two children. My favourite treatments are facials, massage and waxing and with my professional work background and ever-growing passion for beauty therapy, I am committed to providing you with top quality service and I look forward to seeing you in clinic.
I trained as a beauty therapist in 1997, and worked as a facialist and massage therapist on board the Star Princess. From there I went on to work in Pharmacy where I held numerous roles including management. Over the past twenty-five years my experience in the beauty industry has been wide spread and I have loved every moment of it. I have two beautiful children who keep me on my toes and are the light of my life. My success in the beauty industry is largely due to my passion for skin and makeup. I love people and making sure they are well looked after and will endeavour to make your experience at Bloom fantastic.
