SALON OWNER / HEAD THERAPIST & TRAINER
Jenny has worked in the Beauty Industry for 12 years and recognised the need for attention to detail from a young age. Graduating from college and completing her PTTLS teacher training award with a high-level A. Jenny went on to work with some of the most prestigious salons and companies in the UK including SAKS, ESSIE and EYELASH EMPORIUM, there, she gained a wealth of experience, training alongside the likes of Wilma Dunn and Ruth Roddem. Having accomplished a wealth of knowledge and experience she eventually set up as self-employed in a Lincoln salon, where she built up an excellent reputation from an ever-increasing client base. She eventually decided to turn her dream into reality and together with her husband transformed Blinkin Gorgeous into the salon it is today. The resounding success of the salon has far surpassed Jenny’s expectations, with many clients booking appointments months in advance!
Beauty Therapist / Department Assistant
I first walked through the salon doors at Blinkin’ Gorgeous back in 2015; as a client of Catherines and I was always really intrigued by how she created each design, always asked her SO many questions until in 2019 she suggested I should book onto one of the nail courses with BG because I always seemed so interested in the processes! I decided to go do it and attended the Blinkin’ Gorgeous Gel Polish and Manicure course in December 2019 and it was from that moment I knew I needed a 360 degree career change from working in HR and Recruitment. After some further conversations with Jen, Catherine and Loren about how much they loved their jobs, (and being in awe of their amazing talents) I agreed with Jen to do some work experience for Blinkin’ Gorgeous throughout the 2019 Christmas Period – which was when I realised how much I loved the general vibes and buzz of the BG salon and got a real thirst for learning and improving more from seeing the fantastic work the girls there produce! I am really excited to see what the future holds for me here, I will be coming on board to assist with managing the day to day operations of BG aswell as be working in the salon as a Beauty Therapist. I am qualified in gel manicure and pedicures, Polygel and acrylic extensions, Classic, Hybrid and Russian lashes aswell as brow treatments – I am really looking forward to getting to know everyone and to be joining such a fabulous team!
