Kristy-Lee has trained in Beauty Therapy whilst living in North Wales, in the UK; where she covered all things beauty related – nails, facials, OG lash perming and waxing. After completing her training, she’s decided to work mobile until she got into Mental Health, supporting individuals with physical and mental disabilities. She thoroughly enjoyed this work; it was quite intense at times but it was quite rewarding as she have always wanted a role where she could help people and make the world a better place. She did pursue beauty on the side and also provided her service users with treatments within their homes, which she found such an important part of their support to continue that personal care.
After some time in Mental Health and gaining some experience working in an Administration role in High Schools assisting the SENCo, she started to feel underwhelmed and a little lost in life with the direction she wanted to go in, she just felt like she was meant to do more! She had always loved Makeup Artistry so she enrolled on more beauty courses to refresh her skills and jumped into Lash Extensions! She never thought she would ever get to grips with Lash Extensions as it is so intricate and complex until one day it all fell into place and had a lightbulb moment that she absolutely fell in LOVE with all things lashes. She began immersing herself more with learning more tips and tricks, researching brands, lash maps and practicing on all her family members! She finally went back to Beauty full time, eventually landing a spot on a Beauty Concession in a Large Department store. It definitely was a great experience hitting KPI’s, stock taking, liaising with larger makeup brands, training new staff and working with the owners who were based in South Wales.
A local salon she often went to for nail extensions, had a treatment room become available, which funnily enough were her trainers for Lash Extensions and Nails! They were so passionate and enthusiastic about their craft and their passion was so infectious she took the chance and moved her clients from home to the salon 3 days a week, working alongside the concession position. This really gave her even more salon experience and building a great clientele.
In 2020 she said farewell to North Wales and moved back to Australia! It’s honestly been a whirlwind of a year since coming back home with a few added curveballs, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. She is looking forward to the future that is ahead of her. Stepping outside her comfort zone, further developing her knowledge and meeting so many more beautiful students. Bring it on!
