How To Become An Award Winning Facialist

French Alumni Christie Cameron is an award winning facialist, celebrated for her unique approach to facials – blending science with holistic practices. Here is her roadmap to success. 

Working in an unfulfilling role, Christie gained the courage to change her career path to study beauty therapy. She is a firm believer that it’s never too late to do what you love. “Taking the first step can be scary, but on the other side is an incredible, magical experience,” Christie says.

“There is an entire world of possibilities awaiting for you if you have the courage to take the first step.”

Studying Beauty Therapy at The French gave Christie the confidence to work in industry after she graduated. Although the teachers help guide you towards graduation, a lot of Christie’s success came down to her strong work ethic and determination. “I loved it so much that even outside of my study hours I would help out at the Student Salon, I just wanted to be helping others and learning every aspect of the industry.” Christie shares. It’s unsurprising that Christie went on to win her first award in her new word of beauty therapy –  Valedictorian of her graduating class.

“The best advice I received at The French was to always believe in myself. Education and knowledge can always be taught, but having self belief will take you to unimaginable heights.”

Christie’s ultimate goal was to work at a luxurious spa, and all her dreams became a reality when she secured a job at Gwinganna, a holistic health and lifestyle retreat. Through this experience, Christie developed her ‘touch’ and discovered the relationship between healing and physical touch. 

From there, moving into the medi-aesthetics space allowed Christie to expand her skillset and understand science-based practices. Christie explains, “I want to continue to educate myself in different spaces so I can continue to grow in different areas of the beauty and wellness industry”. This decision lead her to her now role at SSKIN as a Senior Dermal Skin Therapist. Her unique approach to skin now combines ancient techniques and energy healing with modern day technology and result driven treatments.  Christie has not only built a reputable business as a skin therapist but has been recognised as The Best Beauty Therapist On The Gold Coast, two years in a row!

“Understanding that the industry is always changing is really important. I’ve noticed there’s a gap between holistic skin health and medi-aesthetic health and I’m currently trying to bridge that gap for more advanced results.”

Christie Cameron has achieved incredible success since graduating and is a great role model for anyone wanting to take the leap of faith into the beauty industry. But her journey has just begun, and her ultimate goal is to pursue being a celebrity facialist and run masterclasses to teach others special techniques.
