After 25 years in the retail trade I joined my daughter and daughter in law to set up Blandford Health & Beauty Centre in 2004.
I really enjoy meeting and greeting all of our lovely clients and helping them book their appointments. I will also be here to advise you on any purchases you would like to make with my 14 years of experience with our brands. I take pride in keeping the reception and retail department running smoothly.
My favourite product is Decléor White Petal Concentrate because of it’s brightening effect on my skin. I also love Decléor Neroli Balm for it’s hydrating effect during the night.
After completing my training at Bournemouth College over 20 years ago I worked in several salons and spa’s using different skin care brands which I feel has really helped me make the right decision when choosing which brands to use within the salon. I then gained management experience whilst working in a Spa which is where I got my inspiration to run my own salon.
After working from my parent’s spare bedroom I very quickly became aware that I needed to get premises to work from which is where Blandford Health and Beauty Centre began. It was a family run business with my Mum and sister-in-law which again grew bigger than we ever imagined and we moved into the premises we’re in now with my wonderful Mum being my business partner.
After having my 2 children I decided to learn more about the business side of the salon but still manage to treat a handful of my regular clients. I love the holistic and traditional side of beauty and feel this is what I specialise in when making my clients feel completely pampered and de-stressed.
Lauren joined Blandford Health and Beauty Centre in 2015. She quickly became a very valuable member of our team and is now extremely popular with our client’s.
Lauren qualified in 2013 after attending Bournemouth College where she achieved Level 3 in Beauty Therapy and was presented with Therapist of the year. She is extremely thorough and very particular within the treatments she carries out and the general day to day running of the salon.
Lauren say’s “I enjoy making my client’s look and feel great about themselves. I am especially confident in waxing, manicures and pedicures”.
Her favourite products are the Rose Radiance from Bare Minerals as it creates such a wonderful healthy glow and she also couldn’t live without her Bare Pro foundation due to it’s amazing coverage.
Kim joined our team in 2008 after completing work experience whilst at Bournemouth College. After she qualified at B.Tec level she joined the team fulltime.
Now with over 10 years’ experience Kim is our longest standing member of staff who carries out all her treatments to absolute perfection. She is always a pleasure to have around the salon with her bubbly and happy personality.
Kim say’s “I love all aspects of the role as a Senior Beauty Therapist and although I carry out all the treatments I particularly enjoy the Decléor facials helping clients to completely relax. I pride myself on my work ensuring that all my clients leave the salon feeling relaxed and like a new person”.
Kim’s favourite product is the Decléor Ylang Ylang balm because of it’s ability to clear and smooth even the most congested of skin’s.
Amy joined the team in 2013 after qualifying from Yeovil College where she achieved Level 3 in Beauty Therapy and was also presented with Therapist of The Year for 2 years running.
Amy is extremely passionate about the beauty industry and takes pride in all aspects of her work. She is renowned for her attention to detail whilst carrying out treatments and has very a calm and friendly manner.

Maxine joined our team in 2009 after completing her training at Bournemouth College. She is another long standing member of our team.
Maxine is extremely passionate about her facial treatments with a natural love for anything Decléor or CACI. You will be in for treat when experiencing one of these with Maxine and with her kind and loving nature to welcome you, you’ll leave feeling completely de-stressed and nurtured.
Maxine say’s “I really enjoy seeing my regular client’s return and tailor making a treatment for them depending on what they feel they need on that day”.
Maxine’s favourite products are Bare Mineral’s Complexion Rescue as it’s wonderfully hydrating, protects your skin and also has an SPF of 30. It also leaves your skin looking naturally radiant. She also loves Neroli night balm from Decléor as when she wakes up her skin feels hydrated and plumped.
Sarah trained at Bournemouth College and joined our team in 2010. She is another long standing member of our team.
Sarah’s calm and friendly personality rubs off on us all when working with her but it has also made her extremely popular with our clients over the years. It shows within her treatments and her clients always leave feeling relaxed and completely pampered.
Sarah say’s “I love doing facials and pedicures as I find the essential oils relax me as much as my clients when using them in the Decléor treatments”.
Sarah’s favourite products are anything Decléor due to them being so pure and natural. She feels the products help not only with the natural health and radiance of her skin but also with her general well-being.
Christina is the the most recent therapist to join our team but is already proving extremely popular with our client’s. After completing college, she successfully secured a job in a salon where she stayed for 5 years and worked with our Number 1 brand Decléor.
After being in the industry now for 13 years, Christina specialises in Decléor facials and massage but is competent in all aspects of beauty therapy.

Shannon really enjoys doing pedicures, so if you’re looking for a pamper then look no further than a Luxurious Spa pedicure with a wide range of nail colours to choose from.
