La Belle Jolie is not just any beauty business, it's a luxury spa experience hidden inside a high street salon.
With 30 years experience as both beauty therapist and Spa Director in some of the finest spas in Britain such as Champneys, Ragdale Hall, The Refinery and the Royal Garden Hotel Spa, as well as covering a broad spectrum of roles in Spa Consultancy, international lecturer in electrotherapy and expert and teacher in vintage hair and make-up techniques, she has drawn on her experience and knowledge to create an unusual environment that combines beauty, well-being and aethetics treatments with all the luxury and comfort you would expect from a destination spa.
Renée also had to create the business out of necessity, she was a passionate advocate about what was many years ago seen as slightly strange and odd beliefs about the negative impact of toxic ingredients used in the beauty industry, her refusal to be complicit made her strong views quite challenging for some.
As a result of this the salon has a strong social and environmental policy. We are an authorised Beauty Bank and we accept donations of toiletries, cosmetics and sanitary protection for Norwood Foodbank. No one should have to be challenged with the choice between personal hygiene and hunger.
We have always been a green salon with all our power coming from renewable resources, none of our waste goes to landfill, we don't use palm oil or microbeads and we monitor all areas of the business regularly for ways to improve our green practices. We use natural, organic products from Éminence Organics, whom to date have planted over 17 million trees.
We also support a strong educational environment for students and team members alike ensuring that continued development and growth are part of daily life.
Together with our impressive team, all these aspects have combined to make us a multi-award winning business of which we are incredibly proud and can't wait to share it with you.
We understand that taking time off to visit a spa is not always convenient,
having spa quality services on your door step just makes life a little easier.
