About Myself & My Business
Hi, my name is Rebecca Pattenden and I have had my own business now for 24 years.
I cover a wide range of beauty and hair treatments at home, and mobile for my hairdressing. I am a professional, reliable, hard working beauty therapist and hairdresser, and my aim is to put my clients at ease and relax them.
Even though I've been in business for along time, I keep my prices fairly competitive, as I know what it is like having a family and a home, with the rising costs of living. If you would like to book an appointment please ring me on (01452) 616634 or mobile (07951) 212701, or email me on: firstname.lastname@example.org
I have also done hair and make-up for a few magazines, OK and Prima. I also do photo-shoots and have done a lot of make-overs for Film Photo, which are to do with the Cheltenham Film Studios. I do people's hair and make-up when they are having a make-over photoshoot. Here I either do a one off make-up and hair, or if it is for a portfolio I may stay and change the make-up etc for the different photo's they're going for. I am available for photo shoots but I do need a few weeks notice for availabilities especially during school holidays.
My diary does get booked up a couple of months in advance with regular client's, so if you're wanting sommething doing for a specific date please contact me well in advance to make sure I can fit you in.
Beauty Treatments 1
Permanent removal of hair eventually, using a small fine sterile needle each time the same width as the hair being treated. This uses heat which destroys the root of the hair which will eventually be killed off and never grow again.
This is a treatment for the removal of red veins, thread veins, moles, warts, skin tags, and spider naevi. With this treatment it again uses heat, but this time the current is on all the time and it quarterises the blood vessels and moles and warts, so stopping them from coming back.
Manicure & Pedicure
These treatments of the hands and feet, all include filing of the nails, removal of any hard skin, massage, and painting of nails. There are also Luxury versions of them which include exfoliation, and a cool paraffin wax treatment using menthol based products which produce a small amount of heat, aswell as all the above parts of the normal treatments.
Gel manicure and pedicure (14 day manicure)
This is a revolutionary new type of treatment that lasts for atleast 14 days but can last longer. The special gel varnishes are cured under a UV light which hardens it, and then after the top coat has been applied the nail is cleansed to remove the sticky layer, and you are left with shiny chip proof varnish.
This a fantastic treatment for people who suffer with any dry skin problems, such as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, or circulation problems and arthritis. This can be done alone, or as part of a treatment. A massage is done first and then warm paraffin wax is painted on the area and foil is wrapped over after to keep the heat in, and help penetrate the massage lotion into the skin to re-hydrate it.
This is the use of warm wax to remove hair from face or body. This method means you have a hair free area for atleast 3-5weeks, and if you regularily wax it will eventually get a lot finer and in some cases stop growing.
Sienna X Spray Tan
This is a safe and easy way to get a natural looking tan, without the worry of getting skin cancer from UVA or UVB rays from the sun or Sunbeds. I can do this in the salon or in the privacy of your own home. Sienna X is used on Strictly Come Dancing, and has been in many magazines such as Tatler, OK, Womans Own, and many others.
I will alter my massage according to every client, depending what they are wanting? I can use a normal oil, or ready mixed aromatherapy oils to relax, or invigorate.
Silhouette Dermalift (Non-surgical face & body lift)
Using a machine with 2 electodes & cotton buds in, they move along the muscle pathways of the face and it stimulates the muscles to start working again and giving the collagen particles a boost to work again, as they break down as you age. This also tones & tightens the skin, helping reduce fine lines, wrinkles and sagging muscles on the face & body.
Variety of Specials
These are treatments for different parts of the body that aim to relax and de-stress my clients.
Beauty Treatments On Offer 2
There are a variety of facials available from basic simple ones, all the way through to more advanced facials using non-surgical machine, also infusions using products that are pushed into the skin that keep working for upto 48hrs afterwards.
This is used to lighten facial and body hair. A patch test is required 24-48hrs before to make sure you're not allergic to the product.
Hopi Ear Candles
This is an excellent treatment to relieve symptoms of sinusitis, hayfever, tinnitis, and ear wax build up. It is a very good treatment also for children who suffer with glue ear. Also excellent for divers and people who fly a lot, due to the pressure build up in the ears/nose (popping).
The contra indications (not allowing you to have it) for this treatment are any tumours of ear, nose and throat, recent perforation of ear within 6 months, the use of grommits, mastoiditis, any inflammation of the ear, or boils.
These are all treatments for the eye area, some need a patch test to make sure not allergic to products used.
There are a variety of studs available, all hypoallergenic, and aftercare lotion and after care advice leaflet included in price. Using an all in one Inverness ear piercing system, all studs come in sealed packets so cannot be contaminated in any way. Before I do ear piercing I always fill out a questionnaire.
These are a small group of 3 lashes that are adhered to your natural lashes to give length and thickness. These are not eyelash extensions that can last for about a month, but I do hope to do these at some point.
These are available in 2 different ways. You can either pay for specific treatments, or alternatively pay a certain amount and the person can then choose the treatments they wish to have up to the amount or pay extra if they wish if their treatments come to more?
I do make-ups for all ocassions, and specialise in wedding make-up. I also do do make-up lessons for anyone who isn't sure how to apply make-up or what colours to use.
I can cut childrens hair of all ages from little ones of 1yr up to school ages. I am CRB checked also as I work with children at my sons' school at breakfast club.
MEN & WOMENS CUTS
I cut adults hair aswell using different techniques according to your type of hair, to give texture, fullness etc. This also includes OAP'S, I can go into nursing homes aswell if allowed.
There are a variety of perms available depending on what you are after? Perming chemically alters the molecules in the hair shafts, so instead of being straight it will then change to the shape and size of the perm rods used and become curly or wavey. I will chat with you about the best sort to go for.
There are different types of colours and colouring techniques available. There are semi permanent colours which use a very low percentage of peroxide and last only for 6-8 weeks, or permanent colours that will dye the hair a colour and will last permanently until it is cut out or the roots are tinted after about 6 weeks depending on how fast your hair grows? Also available are hi/low lights which are colours that you put through the hair either lighter or darker than your natural hair colour and are put in as streaks. With any colouring I need to do a patch test 24-48hrs prior to colouring to make sure you're not allergic to the colours that I use. I also do a test strand on your own hair to make sure that your hair takes it okay.
I specialise in putting hair up in different styles, whether it's for a prom, or just a night out somewhere different to usual. Have a look at my galleries to see a variety of my work.
** Means you will need to have a patch test done 24-48 hrs before having any colour done, this is to make sure you're not allergic to the products that I use. This is a legal requirement and I won't do any colouring with out doing this.
IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE OF CHELTENHAM OR GLOUCESTER I DO CHARGE A TRAVEL FEE.
