Simply the best

Hello and welcome to my site.

My name is Barbara Blaney, and I have been running my Beauty Salon successfully from home for over 15 years amd qualified over 10 years in A.C.P.  I live at home with my children who are very supportive of my career.   The Salon is just a normal part of our everyday life now.

I studied at Bexley College on the full-time 2 year Btec Beauty Course, and was awarded an Edexcel National Diploma with Distinction in July, 2001.  I was with a great bunch of girls, who made going back to college at 38, a real pleasure.  I had been in the London Fire Brigade Control for over 20 years, so it was a complete career change for me. I won the Iris Ball Rose Bowl Award for Professionalism in the 1st and 2nd year, and in the 2nd year won the Sterex Award for Continuous Progress in Electrolysis.

I started doing treatments on my friends and family in my son’s bedroom, before the salon was ready.  They were all very patient with me whilst I was training.  I would talk them into having treatments done, especially eyebrows – I was obsessed with eyebrows – still am!  (They really can completely change your look!)  
So, a big thanks to all of you.

I knew how I wanted the salon to look and feel, and spent the time whilst I was training to plan it, and buy all the equipment.  I had the salon finished to a very high standard and although it is a professional room, it benefits from being in a relaxed family home setting. I have now completed a refurbishment at our new address which has been done to the same high standard and benefits from its own private side entrance.

I have always offered the complete range of beauty treatments, but qualified over    7 years ago in Advanced Electrolysis or A.C.P. (Advanced Cosmetic Procedure).     This covers the removal of many skin lesions, including Skin Tags, Thread Veins, and now Moles, (with GP’s approval). It is a treatment that I am very passionate about.    It has an ‘instant result’ in most cases and if you refer to the before and after photos    I have taken, you will see the excellent results I’ve had already.  If you have had a treatment with me, feel free to write your comments about your experience, and I will upload them onto the site.  If you haven’t had a treatment, but are interested, there is much more detailed information on the A.C.P page.

If you have any queries about any of my treatments, please contact me either by phone or e-mail (both shown on my home page), and I will endeavour to answer your questions.

I am very lucky to enjoy my work, and look forward to meeting new people every week.  Many of my clients are now firm friends and I would like to think that as soon as you step into my salon, you will feel the friendly, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. But also know that you will always receive a professional and personal treatment.

Looking forward to seeing you soon.
