About Louise Brownlie
Here is my story...
I’m a straight talking skin geek, but the path to get was a rollercoaster!
From a young age, I was really interested in how the body worked and although I didn’t end up being a nurse (a path I once thought I would go down), I completed an HND in beauty therapy but knew there was more to know about skin… a lot more!
I then started a Bachelor of Arts degree in Advanced Skin Techniques.
I travelled a 220 mile round trip every week to Newcastle to complete it and gained my degree with a 1st Class Honours.
Personally, I’ve had my fair share of struggles in life, from childhood all the way to adult every day life. I am learning to adapt to life everyday now, having a neurological condition which makes walking difficult and majorly effects my balance…so if you see me walking into a wall sometimes it’s nothing new!
I have this saying tattooed on my arm…
My greatest inspiration was my beautiful Mum who passed away a few years ago. She was the most selfless person and had a heart of gold. She always wanted me to get my life together and use ‘that brain’ that she always knew I had. I know I am doing her proud as I have exceeded every goal I have set myself in the last five years.
My daughters inspire me every day and obviously my amazing clients who keep me in as high spirits as I try to keep them in.
I set up my business in 2017. It’s a bittersweet year, as it was the same year that my Mum passed. I now have the salon that I once rented a room in so I must be doing something right.
I have since won Skin Specialist three years in a row so my passion just grows stronger as does how I serve my clients.
