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…

What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger!

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.
