Im Vicki Hexter, the owner of beauty holistic avenue renting out rooms to independent therapists like myself to provide a variety of passionate therapists under one roof. My personal therapy business is The Facialist, as although I have a vast experience of 25 years in a full range of beauty, advanced aesthetics and holistic therapies my passion lies in skin care.
I studied at the London College of Fashion a BTEC HND course in combined beauty therapy, cosmological science and business studies. The reason I chose to study beauty instead of becoming a teacher like I had planned? I had terrible acne, and in my quest to deal with this I had started a passion for make-up and skin care. I was determined to learn all I could about the skin and skin care products.
I started in the west end as a make-up artist, then working as a dermalogica skin care therapist, going on to manage salons in the west end and the city. Through my training I had conquered my skin problems and I wanted to pass my knowledge onto clients. The problem was being based in the city or west end people did not want a skin treatment and have to go back to work or home on the train, so I decide to open a salon locally so people could come to me after work or on their days off.
In 1995 I open Beauty Avenue on The Avenue in Highams Park, East London (hence the name). A one room salon with myself as the only therapist and my sister helping on reception. After 3 years I was too busy to meet the demand and with parking getting more of a challenge, I move to Walthamstow right opposite homebase so the parking issue was solved and I had more rooms, so I could take on liked minded therapists to help meet the demand.
With over 25 years experience I have developed a range of treatments, products and holistic therapies that help treat all skin conditions from anti-ageing, acne, pigmentation, rosacea, scarring, facial hair and general skin health.
Call or email me for a free consultation, I can devise a skin care plan for you to get the skin you wish for.
