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.
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.
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 completing my studies in 2008 I graduated with a Diploma in Beauty Therapy. I continued to build on this foundation over the next few years by working at various spas including the InterContinental Resort & Spa where I treated clients from all over the world. I then moved to New Zealand and married my husband before we celebrated the arrival of our gorgeous daughter.
My passion for beauty therapy has grown every year. I enjoy each aspect of the beauty industry and the treatments we provide and I love the personal reward I get from knowing that I have truly made a difference in the way a person feels about themselves both physically and mentally.
In 2006 I graduated from Elite International School of Beauty and Spa Therapy and went on to work at a boutique salon in Taupo. It was there that I further developed my skill set, gained in-clinic experience and expanded my knowledge of the industry. Later, I moved into a role at Caci Clinic where I learned numerous techniques and directed my focus towards advanced skincare treatments.
I then decided to go off and see the world and spent six wonderful years travelling. Upon returning to New Zealand I knew I wanted to work at a top spa, somewhere where I could utilise and develop my advanced skincare and massage therapy knowledge. Enter Bloom Skin & Beauty Boutique.
My passion is skin, particularly facial treatments and the confidence that my clients feel when they achieve a beautiful, healthy glow. I can’t wait to meet my new clientele and help them reach their beauty goals!
I have always been attracted to Beauty Therapy and love that I am now a part of an industry that helps individuals feel beautiful and confident in their own skin. Previously I was a shy person when it came to interacting, but through studying Beauty Therapy in 2018, I found that I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and interacting with a diverse range of people. This is my first role in the industry and I love it. As a Receptionist my aim is to ensure all of our clients feel welcome and comfortable when they step through the doors at Bloom.
