Hello and welcome to my site.
My name is Barbara Blaney, and I have been running my Beauty Salon successfully from home for over 18 years and qualified over 12 years in A.C.P. I love working from home, and my children have always been 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 was a professional room, it benefited from being in a relaxed family home setting.
A complete refurbishment and extension was done at our new address in 2011 which has been done to the same high standard but also benefits from its own private side entrance.
I have always offered the complete range of beauty treatments, but qualified over 12 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 reduction in size and colour of 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 any queries about any of my treatments, please contact me either by phone or e-mail which can be found on the Contact us page , and I will endeavour to answer your questions.
I keep my self up to date with all the treatments I do and attend regular workshops especially to do with SPMU, Meso Vytal, and ACP and Electrolysis. So feel assured you are getting the best treatment possible.
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.
