 ' I can honestly say that Scratch is my happy place! If I’m feeling sad or a bit down, when I walk into the salon it makes me feel so much better.

From working with my best friends and catching up with my regular clients, to meeting new customers, it makes it such a feel-good place to be! '

  " Just had a wax at Scratch with Jen and It was the best wax i've had to date, was pretty much painless unlike other waxes i've had previously at other salons . Jen was fabulous, so lovely and chatty, really made me feel at ease! "    
  Today I had a back massage & facial with Jenny & had to write a review because it's the best facial I've ever had.  My skin feels amazing & I'm glowing too! "         

    
What’s your history in beauty?

 I began my BTEC in beauty therapy science in 2005-2007 at University College Birmingham.

I have worked in salons since 2006 doing a wide range of treatments including waxing, tinting, massage, facials, manicures, pedicures and gels.

Along the way I have trained with Elemis, Decleor, Guinot, Jessica, St Tropez, Dermaco and Essie.     
    
   
   
What would your superpower be?

 If I could have any superpower, it would be to stop time. Unfortunately, time goes too quickly, and we never have enough time to stop, relax and take in what’s going on. I feel like life is very rushed.      

Who is your beauty icon?

   My favourite beauty icons are Victoria Beckham - for her style, and Blake Lively for her natural but glamorous make up. They are such classy ladies!    
    
    

   
Why did you want to work in beauty?

Originally, I wanted to be a teacher, but during school I undertook a week’s work experience at a school, followed by a week in in a salon, and I realised how much I loved being in the salon environment - and that teaching, definitely wasn’t for me. I loved being 1 on 1 with clients and making them feel good about themselves.     
 
What’s your favourite treatment?

 I really love all the treatments that I offer, and I love a day full of variety. So, some waxing, followed by a nice relaxing facial and massage, followed by some gels and a pedicure. Days like this are ideal for me - no day is the same.    
    

  "It always feels rewarding when your clients leave the salon feeling happy about themselves. But for me, the best part is to know that clients come here for an escape! When you are 1 on 1 with your clients, they can confide in you, and you can confide them – it’s a really special relationship!"
