About Us

I first trained as a beauty therapist back in 1985 at The Muriel Drinkwater academy in Christchurch, there I learnt to do all the basic beauty therapies and really loved the work.

After qualifying I worked in a salon in Bournemouth town centre which I really enjoyed - I’d go to fitness classes after work and hence came my next passion - fitness!

I trained to become a fitness instructor in 1988 and got heavily involved in teaching classes I've worked at many of the local gyms such as David Lloyd, the Littledown Center and the Westhants Club (where I still teach) ….over the years I've added to my skills and kept up to date with different trends in both fitness and beauty.

In 1998 I trained to do acrylic nails in Salisbury with Creative then in 2008 eyelash extensions with Marvel Lash (although I now use Lash Perfect) and most recently to further my skills as a makeup artist I trained at the London Academy Of Freelance Makeup Artists (an advanced course taught by the artists to the rich and famous).

For the past 10 years I've combined the two and in-between teaching fitness I've done beauty work - then 4 years ago Beautifully Balanced was born.

We specialise in weddings and pamper parties but also the day to day beauty treatments - of which I do myself, only employing other staff when needed. We only use girls fully qualified and experienced in their line of work.

I love my job and take great pride and care with all my work.
