Nothing is ever achieved alone. 2 of GLOW’s greatest treasures – our truly wonderful clients, their loyalty, their support and their loveliness is what is what makes GLOW possible. And our Therapists…our team…our GLOW ‘Girlies’.
Let me begin to introduce these priceless treasures to you. For these are the people that keep GLOW glowing…
May 1994 – I had a special client who spotted how wonderfully busy I was and asked if I needed any help. Naomi is still at my side today; helping me every step of GLOW’s way. Beautiful, glamorous, calm, professional…and always there for me and for GLOW.
I GLOWed with pride when in 2003 Naomi received a nomination for British Beauty Therapist of the year.
And in 2007 Naomi was awarded the Golden GLOW award.
So in order for you to get to know her a little better, I decided to ask Naomi a few questions:
Naomi has achieved too much for me to begin so I asked her what she believed was her own greatest achievement – there was no hesitation:
“2009 – Mold winning their award as the Professional Beauty Awards. Best new UK salon. It meant everything to me after being so close with nominations but not quite winning whilst managing our Chester salon – a special moment”
Your Favourite product?
“(Can I have 2?!) Decleor Prolegene Gel and Dermaquest B5″
Your favourite treatment?
“Has to be a pedicure. And to do? I have no doubt it’s a Carita facial!”.
“To carry on learning and developing, if there ever is a 4th GLOW I would love to be part of the whole process after working in all 3 of our salons from their beginnings”.
If you had one Superpower what would it be?
“I want to say flying or time travel – to look cool – but without sounding too American or hippy the ability to Heal would be mine”.
“Although I am a Wife and a Mother being a GLOW girl is very important and defining to me now after all this time. I feel, when I put my uniform on and walk into the salon, how I imagine a Norland nanny or a Virgin stewardess must feel – part of something special, part of something unique. I love what I belong to and I love working with the development of the younger girls – sometimes seeing the young Therapist I once was and remembering the excitement I felt when I got a re-booking or a request for me personally! The buzz of making people feel better about themselves never goes away for me. I always want to improve and to carry on looking after my lovely ladies as long as this GLOW girl can!
Naomi has given me 21 years of her life.
I’m grateful every day for having her at my side.
Love from, Sara x
