Michelle has been in the beauty industry for over 14 years, she has worked in a top spa and assisted in managing a gym. She is a fully qualified beauty therapist, specializing in holistic treatments and message.
Michelle started working at the White Room in August 2013. She is very friendly caring, completing every treatment to the highest standards and ensures the salon runs smoothly. She is a certified Dermlogica skin therapist.

Alicia started working at the White Room in July 2013 part time whilst she was gaining her beauty therapy qualifications at Ashfield. With her mum being a beauty therapy teacher and previously owning a beauty salon, Alicia has grown up in the beauty industry.
After finishing her studies she then became a full time beauty therapist, doing most of the treatments and specializing in HD Brows. She also works in the Lash and Brow bar on Thursdays and Friday afternoons 1 – 5 and a few hours on Saturdays. She is a pleasant obliging girl with loads to offer as a team member.
Kelly came to the White Room in July 2013 for a week’s work experience to gain knowledge into the working world organised through her school, not long after we offered her a “Sunday girl” job, to work every Sunday and help in the running of the salon and to do various jobs. Since then, she started West Notts College in September 2014 to do beauty therapy at level 2 and she now has an apprenticeship with us.
She has come on a long way from when she first started, being quiet and shy, to now being a lot more confident and always eager to learn and develop herself further. She completes all treatments to the best of her ability and is Dermaligica certified.
Lauren has family members who are loyal clients to the White Room, so from a young age Lauren would come along with them and see the treatments being done, and would think “I want to do this when I grow up!” so she did!
We asked Lauren if she wanted to be a Saturday girl in 2013, to keep the salon clean and to do reception duties. And when she left school in 2014, her and Kelly both applied at West Notts College to begin their training together. Kathrine offered Lauren an apprenticeship and she has excelled ever since.
Lauren is a very careful and kind therapist, very sociable and mature for her age. She is Dermalogica certified and completes each treatment to the best standard.
