Lauren – Senior Hair Stylist

Lauren, our Senior Hair Stylist joined Team Elysian in 2018.

Every day is a good hair day for me in Elysian as I get to live my passion for hair creativity and styling. I feel inspired every day as no two days are the same. The sense of professional achievement comes each time I connect with my client from the first hair  consultation right through to the end result. 

I have created my ideal job by combining and sharing knowledge with my colleagues, listening to my clients needs and desires and then doing what I enjoy the most – creating the colour and style my client wants. 

As the Elysian Balayage and Hair Extension salon specialist I enjoy embracing the transformation journey my clients take and get a real buzz seeing the end results as my clients see their hair in the mirror. 

Education and training is so important to us all in Elysian and I really enjoy staying up to date in the hair industry. I love being part of a dynamic, progressive and positive team. It is also great to have amazing clients who have become more like friends over the years.

Maria – Senior Beauty Therapist

Maria, our Senior Beauty Therapist  joined Team Elysian in 2019.

Joining Elysian has reignited my love of skincare, an area I have been passionate about throughout my career. 

Knowledge of all our beauty therapies and skincare products is of paramount importance in my role as Senior Beauty Therapist so I  can inform my clients on the best facial or treatment for their individual needs, while educating them on their personal skincare regime and helping them build their range of skincare products. 

I am trained in all beauty treatments that Elysian has to offer but secretly skincare gets me excited every day and seeing the positive results for my clients on their skincare journey  brings true job satisfaction. 

Continuined professional development through education and training is a top priority in Elysian, which is amazing as there is always something new to learn in the industry. 

I really enjoy being part of the Elysian Team as we encourage and support, not just each other but our wonderful clients too.

Karen – Senior Beauty Therapist

Karen, our Senior Beauty Therapist joined Team Elysian in 2018.  

Being part of Team Elysian really allows me to showcase my professional skills as an educator in all areas of beauty but especially as a Master Surgarist. Training my colleagues in the art of sugaring keeps my skills and knowledge up to date allowing myself and the team to offer quality sugaring treatments which our clients love. The results speak for themselves but to see clients embracing this new but ancient hair removal process makes me very happy.

As a Master Nail Technician I get to enjoy the creative side of beauty, especially with some funky nail art, no design or idea is too much as I enjoy the creative challenge. Continued professional development is a big part of my role in Elysian and I am always looking at new and exciting treatments we can offer to our wonderful clients including up to date Eyebrow, Nails and Pedicure Techniques. 

Elysian is not just a place to work for me it is a place I feel supported, encouraged and valued.

Karen is a trainer and master Sugarist and brings with her a world of knowledge on hair removal, educating guests how effective sugaring and the history behind this technique always has clients fascinated and of course the results speak for themselves. Acrylic nails is another area that Karen is a master in, her designs and attention to detail speak for themselves.
