Revive Beauty Lounge at Tiptree wins two awards
AFTER 18 tough months, a Tiptree salon owner is “over the moon” to have won two beauty industry awards.
Tatiana Leech owns the popular Revive Beauty Lounge at Tiptree.
She is originally from Slovakia and first arrived in the UK in 1999.
Although English was not her first language, she didn’t let that stop her and worked hard in various roles to hone her skills.
After working full time in a manufacturing role, Tatiana wanted a complete career change.
Seven years ago, she decided to take an eyelash artist course.
She said, “I was so scared, but I did it and got some extra income. ”
The move was a success as Tatiana grew stronger and stronger.
In 2019, she opened a lounge in Tiptree’s Tower Business Park.
“It really is a dream come true for me to grow my business to a level that allows me to have my own beauty salon,” she added.
“I have always been passionate about beauty and show my clients how they can truly be their best.
The company now offers a range of beauty and holistic treatments.
The last 18 months of the pandemic have been difficult for many businesses, especially the hair and beauty industry.
All the while, Tatiana has been working on growing her business.
She renovated the beauty salon and expanded with a nail salon in the commercial park.
She also launched Moment of Kindness and created a certificate for clients who supported her during the pandemic last year and collaborated with another company for Mother’s Day.
Such is her popularity, Tatiana has managed to retain 95% of her clientele and has grown with new clients daily.
The company received two awards at the British Beauty Awards.
“Since I moved to the UK and realized my dream of being my boss, I think I am already a winner for many of my family, friends and clients.
“I am so happy to be a part of the UK beauty industry. I am delighted to be the winner in two categories.
The show received bronze for the best new business of the year in the East of England.
She also received the money for self-employed person of the year.
