My name is Keran and I'm a qualified Hair and Make-up artist and beautician. I've always had a love for beauty but didn't think I could pursue it as a full-time career. It all started with a hair and make-up course which I originally carried out so that I could still work if and when I were to have children. At that time, I didn't know that I would end up with a successful business of this magnitude, offering a range of treatments that keep me very busy at my salon and as a mobile artist, with little time to spare.
Once trained I was able to use the skills and knowledge that I had to help others feel more confident and comfortable within themselves. The one thing I've never wanted to use Make-up for is to change the way I look so my style of Make-up is natural, enhancing true beauty rather than changing it to make me look different. And this is how I work...when we are comfortable and happy with how we look naturally then there is no need to wear a mask of products, with this in mind I wanted to take it a step back and work on the bare face before getting to the Make-up stage. So, I started with facials; focussing on making the skin even, clear of blemishes and rejuvenated. Then I perfected my skill of threading to give perfectly shaped and tinted eyebrows to frame the face and define the features as well as a lashlift to open the eyes with no need for layers of clumpy mascara or a heavy set of lashes to weigh eyes down. And slowly I just kept adding to the list of treatments I offer.
I discovered that we only require small additions to enhance our natural beauty and once this is done, we naturally stop feeling the need to add layers and layers to cover up. Living in a world where being plastic and everything fake is very popular is not easy when you're not comfortable with that style. And that, ladies and gents is where I come in 😊
I first trained with Siama Kiran Make-up Academy, from this I gained the confidence to work with Make-up products and tools that I'd not used before. The style of makeup focussed on during this course was heavy and extravagant which made me confident for Indian bridal Make-up, parties, friday night glam and many other events. It was my second batch of training with Samantha Blake of SJB Hair and Make-up/ Beauty Call that gave me the confidence I needed to go out and look after brides on their big day, but now focussing on the style I felt more comfortable with. The more I went out the more confident I felt meeting brides at their trial; going through the look/style they wanted to achieve, figuring out requirements for their hair and skin and treatments they could have with me, before the big day to help create the exact look they were after.
As my ethos is to enhance your natural beauty and not change it, the third part of my training helped greatly. As briefly touched upon above, I decided to branch out into the other side of beauty, training in eyebrow threading/tinting, lashlift and tint, gel nails, waxing, facials, manicures & pedicures, the list goes on. After my initial training in Hair and Make-up, I continued working Monday to Friday 9-5 based in an office, it was only when I found myself turning down weekend Make-up jobs due to general tiredness that I realized I was doing it all wrong, I was spending more time at a job that I didn't want to do and turning down jobs that I felt more passionate about and wanted to do! Silly, I know… so then I took up a job in Bluewater Superdrug offering small services; mainly threading and tinting eyebrows. Working there Monday to Thursday gave me the flexibility to work on weddings from Friday to Sunday. It was shortly after this I went on and founded LaBeautee, a company put together and run by myself. With a friendly sibling battle at home I managed to obtain a small area of what was meant to be my brothers 'man cave' and converted it into my very own salon. A hidden place, out of the public eye. thus was perfect, because let's face it, none of us want to be in the window of a shop with passers-by watching us having our chin hairs removed!! And from here I've been able to offer all my services as well as continue working as a mobile artist for those of my clients that require me to visit them.
It doesn't matter which area of beauty I'm working in, the main thing I pride myself on is the ability to listen to my clients' needs, take on what it is they require and give them exactly that. I am here to listen, advise and deliver services to the highest standard. What sets me apart from every other beautician and artist out there, is my ability to put my client's needs above my ego, to listen to what they require and then use my skills and knowledge to deliver. When was the last time you went to have your eyebrows done and were asked what shape or style you wanted? Or the last time you had your face threaded without having to go home and finish the job yourself? I pride myself on knowing my clients leave me with a smile, feeling confident that they've received the highest standard of service available.
Beauty can be used in many ways, some people use it as a mask, some use it to enhance their features and some use it just to give them a little bit more confidence to face the big wide, scary world. I, myself know that I feel more confident when looking a bit more polished, not always with a full face of makeup but just enough to cover the areas that I'm conscious of, knowing that my eyebrows are 'on point', that I have no unwanted facial hairs and that my uneven skin is balanced out, I can present myself confidently and comfortably in any situation. This is how I want my clients to feel after any treatment they have with me at LaBeautee.
With all that said, I would like to welcome you to my salon in which you can relax, get the best eyebrows in Kent whilst having a chat and coffee and most importantly a bit of that special, sacred 'me time' we all crave in our busy lives. Alternatively, allow me to bring my treatments to you, in the comfort of your own home.
'love of beauty is taste, creation of beauty is art'.
