Meet this year’s Scottish Hair & Beauty Award Finalist 2020 – Kirsty
Where do you work and what do you do?
I own Tallo beauty and I am beauty therapist/nail technician.
What is the most popular treatment in Tallo Beauty?
The most popular treatment at Tallo beauty has to probably be nails! 😬
What is your favourite treatment to perform?
I love doing all of the treatments I offer but definitely nails is my favourite. 💅🏼
What is your favourite beauty treatment to receive?
My favourite treatment to receive has to be full body massage! The deeper the massage the better, It’s just so relaxing. 💆🏽♀️
What are your favourite products to use and do you have any skincare tips?
The one skincare product I couldn’t live without would be moisturiser. If I could pick 2 I would also choose tropic cleanser it’s just wonderful. ☺️
My top tips for healthy looking skin has to be
– drinking plenty of water throughout each day.
– Cleansing, toning, moisturising your skin morning and night. Even when you aren’t wearing make -up.
– A lot of people think eye cream is for mature types of skin. This is not the case the younger you use eye cream the better you will look when you are older 🥰
My random skin care fact is apply any serums prior to your moisturiser. This will give you the best benefit from your serum.
Any favourite Make Up Brands?
Again I don’t really have a specific favourite make -up brand. I like to try different things all the time. My next go to is Charlotte Tilbury 😍
What are your business plans for the months ahead?
I did have lots of plans for 2020 but with the current pandemic they are on hold.
I have however booked myself on to a new course so a new treatment will be added to Tallo beauty I cannot wait to share with all my clients! 😬
I also am just focusing on building my business back up after being in lockdown for over 4months.
Who inspires you the most?
I don’t really have a certain person that inspires me. My family and friends are my inspiration! They are so supportive, help me come up with good ideas for the salon, push me to do my best and help me to achieve my goals. I cannot thank them enough ❤️
What advice would you give to anyone thinking of starting their own business?
I remember when I first went self employed. I was extremely nervous that I wouldn’t have much clients and just over thought the whole thing. The best advice I’d give to someone starting up is to not do this! 🤣🙈 honestly you will be fine. It’s hard work but if you want something to work you will put 100% into it. It’s a great feeling seeing your business become more successful each day! 🙌🏽
Do you have a party trick?
A party trick? 🤣🤣 umm I can walk on my toes? 🤣 (yes I’m weird)
What’s your favourite song to sing in the car?
My fav song to sing in the car is Flowers by Nathan Dawe. I’ve played it so much my daughter knows some of the words 🤣🙌🏽
