Train the Trainer Event A Resounding Success!

Posted by Nadia Burgess on January 10, 2012

Thank you to all our fabulous trainers for attending the Nouveau Beauty Group 2012 ‘Train the Trainer’ event on the 8th/9th January.

Diane and Bridgette did a fantastic job and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their time at our Yorkshire Academy. As a company we believe it’s extremely important to keep our Trainers information consistent and up to date, giving them a platform to promote their own ideas on how we can take our products and services forward. 2012 is a real year of growth for the group and our training is going from strength to strength – partly down to our dedicated team of trainers around the country.

The two days consisted of various activities and team building exercises including a three minute presentation from each trainer on either a Nouveau Lashes or LVL Lashes product, a ‘practical’ session working on our brand new ‘Flare Lash’ (more info available soon!) and some live demo’s working with various products and procedures.

Diane Plummer (Group & Training Manager) and Bridgette Softley (Director) gave in-depth presentations over the course of the two days with two of our successful trainers receiving awards;

Steven Douch wins the award for ‘Best Presentation’

Steven is a professional makeup artist and is one of our lead trainers in the area of Mineral Makeup.  With a background in special effects makeup and a freelance career spanning nine years, Steven is a real credit to the Nouveau Beauty Group Training team – congratulations on your award Steven, your presentation was a real success!




Michelle Kendall wins the award for ‘Best Team Player’

Michelle is an elite permanent makeup artist and master lash technician and, as well as running her own beauty salon in Ludlow, is one of our most valued trainers.  “When I was starting out in permanent cosmetics I never thought for a minute I’d end up working alongside the Nouveau Beauty Group, but here I am and I’ve never been happier!”.  Congratulations on winning Best Team Player Michelle.



Following the event, everyone met for an evening meal at the Burntwood Hotel in Brierley.  Great place if you’re looking for quality food in this area. The team bonded really well and we can’t wait for the next one to take place! For more information on our training courses visit

“Now I can face anything” Chantelle Richardson

Posted by Nadia Burgess on December 14, 2011

Chantelle Richardson was born with a large red birthmark across her forehead, nose and right cheek that made the end of her nose swell up. Over the years Chantelle’s confidence began to fade and she would hide behind a fringe, plaster on makeup up – anything to help her ‘hide’ the marks on her face.


After years of tests, it was finally confirmed that Chantelle had AVM – an abnormal tangle of blood vessels, caused by misdevelopment in the womb. Chantelle’s bravery in undergoing various treatments and operations is a real testiment to her strength of character.

With help from Katie Piper and her Foundation – a charity which supports peope with facial disfigurements, and also Karen Betts – permanent cosmetics technician and MD of the prestigeous Nouveau Beauty Group training academy, Chantelle feels she can now face anything!

Chantelle says of Karen ‘she specialises in helping women like me feel beautiful again’.
