“Inspirational Training” – by Becky Coates

Posted by Nadia Burgess on January 19, 2015

Becky Coates recently sent this beautiful – and moving – message to our MD, Karen Betts and we wanted to share this with you. Our thanks go to Becky – your lovely words have brought a smile to everyone’s face.

“I hope you don’t mind me messaging you but I just wanted to say what an inspiration you are to myself and how your company and the products you offer have turned my life around.

I originally trained as a nail technician 14 years ago and managed a salon in Brighton.  Sadly, the business closed down and I went mobile for a bit but found it hard to make ends meet.  I then went on to work for British Airways as cabin crew for 9 years.  I got back into beauty in June last year following the sudden & untimely death of my amazing Dad.  At the time I was on maternity leave from BA & it made me realise that being away from my family was something I didn’t want anymore as life is too short & preciou.  I didn’t want to miss a moment of spending time with them.

My dad always taught me that it doesn’t matter what you do in life as long as you’re happy.  So with this is mind I remembered how happy I was when I was involved in the beauty industry and I set about doing my research & re-training.

In August, I completed the HD Brows course & Nouveau Lashes then in November I went on to train in LVL Lashes. I can’t believe how well my business has taken off since offering these treatments and how much clients love them and keep coming back.

I was initially worried about offering HD Brows and LVL as I did a bit of market research beforehand and no one had heard of them in my area, and no one in a 15 mile radius of where I lived offered these treatments.  I don’t know why I worried as these are my most popular treatments and everyday I’m getting new bookings.

Following on from the success of these treatments I have booked to train in Dermatude and this time I will be the only person in the whole of Mid Sussex to offer it.  I have been really fortunate to be able to offer this treatment in one of most recognised & respected clinics in Haywards Heath.  When I set up my mobile business Blissimo Beauty in August last year I never imagined how successfully it would have become in such a short space of time and I am so proud and amazed of what I have achieved.  Being able to do the job I do and being excited everyday about performing these treatments had given me a passion for life again.

The memory of my dad has been my driving force throughout this whole experience plus believing in the amazing products and services that you offer and the uniqueness of them. My dad always said to me, from as far back as you can remember, ‘you can do anything if you put your mind to’, so here’s to a successful 2015 for us all.”

Kind Regards, Becky Coates

Best Lash Supplier 2014 – We Need Your Vote!

Posted by Nadia Burgess on February 12, 2014

We are delighted, honoured and humbled that Nouveau Beauty Group, the company that brings you LVL Lashes, Nouveau Lashes and Let’s Go Lashes has been nominated for:

“Best Lash Supplier of 2014” – Guild of Beauty Awards of Excellence

This means so much to us and our team – acknowledging the importance we place on customer service and support, training and products. We would also like to think it’s in recognition of the contributions we have made to the lash industry. Since we first set-up Nouveau Lashes in 2005, we have always tried to breathe innovation into the eyelash industry. Did you know, we introduced lash extensions to the UK and then went on to invent express lashes treatments?  Then of course we created LVL Lashes, the ‘must-have’ natural lash enhancement treatment.

You may be forgiven for thinking Nouveau Lashes is a big company. But we aren’t, we’re more like an extended family. In other words, we’re big enough to make a difference, but small enough to care! It’s this approach that we would like to think has endeared our customers to us.

To those who have already voted for us, helping us reach the finals – thank you so much for your support.

Now it gets even tougher so if you think we deserve the title “Best Lash Supplier of 2014” please vote for us now!

Yours sincerely,

Karen Betts, Bridgette Softley and ‘our family’ at Nouveau Beauty Group

Nouveau Live Beauty Roadshow Success!

Posted by Nadia Burgess on August 20, 2013

Back in May, Nouveau Beauty Group held its first ever Nouveau Live in Newcastle.

Nouveau Live is a one-day exhibition and conference of Nouveau Beauty Group’s products, treatments and training.

Since this very first event in Newcastle we have also visited Liverpool, Cardiff and Leeds.  The Nouveau Live events have been very well received by the industry and have gone from strength to strength.
We welcomed 53 salon business owners to the Hilton Hotel in Leeds this Monday (19th August) for Nouveau Live Leeds.

All attendees spent the day with the Nouveau Beauty Group team, listening to our training presentations to find out how specialist training can help their business more successful.  They then watched the latest techniques and equipment treatment demos and finally meet Karen Betts – Managing Director of Nouveau Beauty Group and the leading authority on permanent cosmetics.

Here are some of the lovely tweets we had from attendees of Nouveau Live Leeds.
