Meet Our Team
Meet Lisa, the proud owner of Gloss Beauty Salon. With many years of experience in the beauty industry, Lisa still loves the positive contributions she makes to the lives of those who enter the sanctuary of Matamata’s leading beauty salon. Lisa concentrates specifically on facials and massages, loving the ability to make a real difference to the way people look and feel through their treatments, empowering confidence in her clients, which is reflected in a beautiful glow.
With skin health being so directly aligned with internal health, Lisa thrives on holistic beauty practice, choosing products for her salon which facilitate and support this principle.
Lisa’s favourite products:
Environ’s Youth Essential Vita Peptide Intensive Serum – anything packed full of concentrated vitamins, antioxidants & peptides to future proof my skin against ageing.
Cosmedics Pure Age Defiance Serum – This is topical Botox in a bottle!
Go-to gift: I love the Bestow Teas, a great way of Introducing people to the “Time for me”, “time for tea” ritual.
What Lisa takes on holiday: I take away all my products with me, wherever I go as I can’t live without them. This can sometimes be a disadvantage as it almost takes up half my suitcase.
Ashleigh loves working within the beauty industry, revelling in the evolving nature of it and the fact that she too is always learning more. She has more than eight years’ experience, and still gets a buzz seeing her clients leave feeling much more wonderful than when they arrived for their treatment. Ashleigh struggled with acne in her early 20s, so fully appreciates the frustration this condition brings, and the importance of treating it both topically and from within.
Ashleigh’s favourite products:
Jane Iredale Liquid Mineral Foundation – lightweight, leaves the skin dewy from the slow release hydration.
Go-to gift: Fresske Glass Tea Flask: so great for water infusions and herbal teas on the go.
What Ashleigh takes on holiday: SPF! Specifically, O Cosmedics Mineral Pro SPF30+. Every single day!
Laurie has been in the industry for over 11 years, many of those with our team here at Gloss. She has always been passionate about skin care and enjoys helping people get the right skin care to treat specific concerns. With a particular love for Environ skin care because of the results the range offers, Laurie enjoys the changes she sees in her client’s skins when using it. She has an in-depth understanding about how skin changes due to the environment, ageing, stress, illness, pregnancy and many other factors, which allows her to be very specific in her treatments.
Laurie’s favourite products:
Immortal Cream – the name says it all, right?
Bestow Beauty Oil – good skin starts from within, and this product enables a strong healthy skin and body. If you aren’t taking this, you’re missing out.
Go-to gift: Candles. I love, love a beautiful candle. They’re affordable without being super indulgent.
What Laurie takes on holiday: I like to travel light, so I take Environ C-Quence Toner, and Youth Activating Balm, with Tinted Mineral Pro moisture protection.
