Karen and Ellie, a mother and daughter team, have been working in the beauty industry for many years. They run a busy rural salon offering a wide range of beauty treatments, and more recently, Ellevisage Training Academy. They continue to work as therapists alongside the training academy which means they are easily able to empathise with beauty therapists in the field.
You will always find them hugely generous with tips and advice whether you are starting up a salon on your own, need a little help and advice with techniques or you just need ideas to get more clients.
Ellie has worked with Alison Francis, the owner of AHFrancis from the age of 16 while studying at Oxford International School of Beauty. Ellie showed a flare for beauty immediately and by the age of 21, she was head trainer at AHFrancis. Alison is also Ellie’s godmother and continues to be her life mentor.
Karen did her beauty training alongside her interior design business so her attention to detail, in particular is one of her strengths. Karen’s students are usually overwhelmed by the amount of effort she makes to ensure that her students leave feeling confident to go out in the world and do treatments.
Ellevisage Training Academy is in a very ‘boutique setting’ in a converted stable block with lots of parking, so no going round in circles looking for parking when training at the academy.
Doing your training at Ellevisage is a relaxed affair with the added benefit of gorgeous home made lunches, cakes and snacks throughout the day. You won’t have to go through the day on a soggy sandwich from the local garage!!
Ellevisage Training Academy regard after care as a fundamental part of training, as they realise that the real work starts after the training day.
A recent review from one of our trainees:-
“I’m still on a high from such a great days training yesterday. I absolutely love everything about AHFrancis eyelash extensions, from their ethos to their outstanding lashes. Karen arranged an excellent days training and went above and beyond to ensure I went home fully confident in the application process. It was well worth driving the 360miles and I’d be happy to do it again for the next AHFrancis eyelash course!”
