I began working in the Beauty Industry at 18, with a number of Part Time Skincare Counter positions, after becoming obsessed with treating my skin, and helping others with their concerns.
As soon as I graduated from University I started my first Full Time Skincare and Management position. Once my contract expired, I began working for beauty temp agencies, taking work when and where I could.
During my time working for these agencies, I felt many things could be improved. Temps such as myself were never paid on time and treated poorly, clients were sent temps with incorrect experience or training, and there was an effective duopoly of agencies supplying temps to the beauty industry. I decided to try and make a change to the industry, and began to tell people of my intention to create the very best beauty agency.
In 2005 I founded Pure Placements with a clear remit - to supply the most passionate temps to clients, while treating all parties with respect, and providing an unbeatable level of service to both clients and temps - it wasn't just about filling positions, it was about education, development, and mutually beneficial relationships. In the early days I was the sole temp, and I was working 2 other jobs simultaneously to make ends meet. Our reputation grew and grew, until I sold Pure Placements at the beginning of 2014, when it was one of the largest and most successful agencies of its kind.
On May 28th 2014, after years of research and planning, Allertons opened in Leeds City Centre, in my eyes bringing my passion for beauty, retail and my career full circle. Providing everything hair and beauty in one place, Allertons has Hairdressing, Facials, Massage, Nails, Brows, Lashes, Waxing, Beauty Treatments, and retail from Makeup, Skincare to Fragrance and Candles.
Allertons is founded on convenience, service and a true passion for beauty. You will find an expert for all of your needs whenever you need them, 7 days a week, in opening hours to suit everyone. It is no wonder that Allertons has become Leeds' Highest Rated Salon according to Google in such a short period of time.
I am truly grateful to everyone who has helped make Allertons a success.
