Meet student, Christina from Tranquillity Therapies, Ipswich

,Christina, Tranquillity Therapies

For this month’s blog, we chat with our Rising Star winner, Christina who has completed lots of courses here at ATA Beauty.  She is now running her own business, Tranquillity Therapies in Ipswich.

What courses did you complete at ATA Beauty? 

I have completed so many courses, at ATA Beauty, it’s going to be hard to list them all but let’s give it a go… Facials, Manicures, Pedicures, Gel Polish, Lash Lift and Tint, Lash Extensions, Brow Lamination, Waxing, Hopi Ear Candling, Indian Head Massage, Level 3 in Body Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Hot Stone Massage, and Level 3 Reflexology.

Wow that’s so many! Which was your favourite treatment to learn and why? 

Reflexology, I love how in-depth it was and that every single treatment is different. I love being able to connect with the client and how they are feeling today, and in the past too.

What advice would you give to anybody who is thinking of training in the industry?  

It takes time, time to train, time to hone your skills and gain confidence in what you are doing. That aside, it is fantastic!  Every day is different and you get to meet a lot of new people which is always fun. I take pride in providing clients with treatments that I have personally had done myself. I think it is good to know and understand how your client will feel.

What have you been up to since qualifying?  

I have gone from providing treatments from a room at home to having my own salon.  I have a fabulous client base that are regulars and the salon location allows for lots of new walk-in customers too. I’m always looking for new courses and add-ons to build on my skills too.

Sounds like you are doing amazingly well! What is your most popular treatment, and o you have a favourite treatment you love to do?  

Now, trying to pick a single treatment is really hard. I think it changes each week as it’ll quite often be whatever I do more of that week. My most popular treatment tends to change often.  I have done a lot of LVL lash lift and tints, also brow waxing, tinting and gel manicures recently.

What trends do you think we will see in the beauty industry in 2023?  

I think we are going to continue to see the glazed doughnut look for nails, especially with the continued introduction by polish manufacturers of glazed polish making the look easier to achieve.  I am trained in Ultrasonic micro therapy facials and I am seeing the demand for these starting to increase too, I think this could in part be due to similar hand held devices going viral on social media platforms in the last year.

What are your future plans with Tranquillity Therapies?  

To continue to grow the business and keep up to date with new trends and treatments that I believe will fit in with the ethos and beliefs of my business.

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to share your story with us, and now we know what you have been up to since studying at ATA Beauty. Wishing you continued success 🙂
