What motivated you to pursue a career in beauty therapy?

I love all things beauty and making people feel beautiful in their own skin.

What was your main motivation for studying at the French?

The French emanated the type of beauty therapist I wanted to be. Refined and polished in every aspect. From uniforms, beauty practices, right down to the reception when you first walk in, it is all about the experience.

What was your favourite part about studying at the French? How would you describe your experience from the day you started at orientation?

I loved the personal growth journey The French took me on. Each day was a new lesson. My favourite part of orientation day was the scent ceremony and writing a note to my future self.

Orientation day was not what I was expecting. I thought it would be a tour around the fire exits but it was so much more. It was the first time I sat back and realised I was about to embark on something very profound.

How did the French help prepare you for life as a professional beauty therapist?

The knowledge and experience that the teaching staff have and share help prepare you for things in the industry that can’t be learned from a book.

Did you have a favourite teacher / subject at the french? Why?

Nadine Russell. Nadine not only talked the talk when it came to being a professional beauty therapist, but she also walked the walk.  She was always presented immaculately, on time and prepared for everyday she came to The French.

What is the best advice you received from your study at the French?

This is only the start of your journey; there is so much to beauty, and you will continue learning long after you have graduated.

Why is it so exciting to work in the beauty industry right now?

The beauty industry is constantly changing. New practices, new technology but at the same time, at the core of change and evolution, is our desire to care for others.


My advice is always to take the plunge. Not only is it one of the most rewarding industries to be in, but you learn so much about yourself along the way.

“Expect that great things take time to build. Have patience.

- Teresa Price

Why did you decide to start your own business? Can you tell us a bit about your journey?

I wanted to create my own brand of beauty, caring for others, as well as providing a beautiful and tranquil space.

What were the first few steps you took to set up the business?

Started small with minimal equipment. Each week adding something new. I researched my market area and target market. 

What were some of the biggest challenges you faced when starting your business, and how did you overcome them?

Cash flow – work within your means. Expect that great things take time to build. Have patience.

What is a decision or perhaps a mistake you've made that has led to a very valuable lesson in running or starting a business?

Get professionals in to sort your bookkeeping and accounting early. They love what they do, and they allow us to do what we love!

What did you learn during your time at The French that helped prepare you when starting your business or during the course of your business journey?

Self-care starts with me; it shouldn’t be just something we preach to our clients – we need to take time out regularly if we are going to continue giving to our clients.

What are your plans for the future of your business, and where do you see yourself in five years?

I would love to teach at The French, share my knowledge and enhance someone else’s journey.

If you had just 1 piece of advice for our Frenchies who are wanting to start their own business, what would it be?

Take time to learn from others first, go out and experience what our industry offers then just go for it!
