Hi I’m Tina!
I live in Essex with my husband Chris and 2 beautiful children, Tommy and Amber.
I have worked at Beauty Essence since 1999 and am the longest serving employee at the salon!
Prior to having children I was the salon Manager, however, since returning on a part time basis, I decided to concentrate on beauty therapy again, and of course my lovely family.
I love the beauty industry and enjoy carrying out all treatments, its great seeing how treatments have moved on over the years and really exciting attending different courses updating my skills.
I also love tidying and organising, the girls at the salon call me Monica from friends – if something needs organising I just cannot leave it alone. My favourite colour is red.
As a child, I used to spend lots of time trying to be helpful (a trait that my beloved daughter has inherited from me!) My dad used to cultivate fish and having seen him feed them liquid eggs I decided that I'd give them a whole carton of cottage cheese one day. Suffice to say that my dad was out at the time. The fish tank turned milky white and my mum was horrified when she found out. As it turned out the fish loved it and thrived. From that point onwards the fish ate cottage cheese when they reached the right age. My mum used to grow produce to show at the local horticultural show. One year she proudly prepared her prize tomatoes for the show. When she busy I decided that they'd make ideal toys and proceeded to roll them down the garden path. Again not a popular choice. Having said that mum did win 2nd prize even though they had to be cleaned and shined again.
An interesting fact about myself – did you know I am a natural blonde but dye my hair dark brown as I prefer it this way!
When I am not at work, I love reading and spending time with my family.
We spend lots of time socialising with my huge family. With so many of us, there is always plenty to do and catch up with.
I look forward to seeing you in the salon soon,
Professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable salon. Highly recommend - Claire
I had my second diamond treatment with Tina and, like last time, I’m over the moon with how my skin looks today! I requested Tina again because I feel like she tailors each treatment for my current needs. I only ever occasionally get a facial and find that when I do go it’s because I’ve had a breakout, she has transformed my skin both times leaving me with a fresher and calmer-looking face!! So happy and feeling confident again, thanks Tina!
I had a great pedicure treatment with Tina. I had forgotten to book a pedicure which included painting the toes but Tina arranged for another beautician to paint my toes after my pedicure. Very helpful and efficient service.
