Kristy-lee trained in Beauty Therapy whilst living in North Wales, in the UK; where she explored all things beauty related – nails, facials, OG lash perming and waxing. After completing her training, she decided to work mobile until she got into Mental Health, supporting individuals with physical and mental disabilities. She thoroughly enjoyed this work; it was quite intense at times, but very rewarding as she has always wanted a role where she could help people and make the world a better place. She did pursue beauty on the side and provided her new client base in the Mental Health sector with treatments within their homes.
Kristy-lee spent some time working in the Mental Health industry and gaining Administration experience while fulfilling a role in High Schools assisting the SENCo. During this time, Kristy-Lee began to feel underwhelmed and simply felt like she was meant to do more! She had always loved Makeup Artistry, so she enrolled into a Lash Extensions course curriculum. Kristy-Lee then fell in love with all things lashes. She immersed herself in learning more tips and tricks, researching brands, lash maps and practicing on family members! She finally went back to Beauty full time, eventually landing a spot on a Beauty Concession in a large Department store. Kristy-lee thoroughly enjoyed the experience and new achieving new goals through meeting KPI’s, stock taking, liaising with larger makeup brands, mentoring new staff and working closely with the owners who were based in South Wales.
A local salon Kristy-lee often went to for beauty treatments herself, had a treatment room become available, which funnily enough was her Lash Extensions Educators’. They were so passionate and enthusiastic about their craft and their passion was so infectious. Kristy-Lee took the chance and moved her clients’ from home to the salon 3 days a week, giving her even more salon experience and building a great clientele.
In 2020, Kristy-lee said farewell to North Wales and moved back to Australia, bringing with her the beauty knowledge, salon experience and leadership skills. Kristy-lee is looking forward to the future that is ahead of her at Elleebana, stepping outside her comfort zone, further developing her knowledge and meeting so many more beautiful students.
