Salon owner, Karen, has 15 years of experience in the beauty industry. Her passion for beauty therapy started at deportment school where she was intrigued by what she learnt about skincare, makeup and colour matching.
Karen is passionate about providing her clients with a high quality of service. One way she shows this is by allowing her clients to customise their services. So, if a guest is looking to relax after a stressful day, or if they want a more targeted treatment, each Ultra Essence client is given personalised service to ensure they are well and truly pampered.
Continued education is very important to Karen. It is how she stays ahead of trends to serve her clients better. And, it is how she maintains her impressive repertoire of accolades which includes winning Mackay Beauty Therapist of the Year, Australian / NZ Lash Champs and being a consistent finalist in the Australian Beauty Industry Awards.
Away from work, you will find Karen indulging in some of life’s most relaxing hobbies, including painting and reading. Otherwise, she spends time with her two adorable pooches, Frankie, the French Bull Dog and Tookie, the Maltese.
