Essential Beauty in Bishops Waltham has been open since November 2007. Prior to that as a mobile and home based salon since 1998
I have 2 treatment rooms with relaxing music and a small reception area. The 2nd treatment room is adapted for perfume fragrance consultation groups and a nail room
I focus and specialise in beauty & well being only- we will not venture out into other areas of trade like hairdressing. This is my passion and I have in depth knowledge in this area of expertise. The first to bring Dermalogica to Bishops Waltham in 2007 and Thalgo in February 2013. As a business I have stocked Dermalogica since 1999 when I worked from home. Used to use Dermalogica at a salon I worked at prior to starting my own business
I am an Expert Status Salon and Therapist
My philosophy is to maximise client’s enjoyment and to achieve satisfaction through providing top quality treatments whether it is a large or small treatment. I strive to be professional, reliable and flexible. Where appropriate I enjoy passing on my knowledge to customers to educate about skin concerns and health so that treatments are more effective in the long term. I am dedicated to ongoing and further training to update skills and knowledge.
I am qualified in an extensive range of treatments and products which mean that my customers can make an informed decision about what is right for their skin and well being.
I have over the years reduced my treatment menu to become more expert in certain areas rather than trying to offer too many services and not being as skilled in some areas

Hello my name is Kelly. I am the owner and head therapist of Essential Beauty. Thank you for visiting the website.
I am from the Isle of Wight, where I qualified in Beauty Therapy City & Guilds NVQ 2 & 3, including Aromatherapy & Electrolysis in July 1998.
I keep up to date with diplomas, advanced, refresher courses and teaching. I am an advanced level Massage therapist, Hopi ear candling & electrologist. I am a Dermalogica Skin Expert status Therapist since 2012.
After qualifying I set up a mobile service on the Isle of Wight. Due to my partners work at the time had to move to Watford, Herts. There I found employment immediately in a hair & beauty salon in Rickmansworth then became manageress. In March 2002 moved to Fareham, Portsmouth to be a little closer to my family, I continued to offer a mobile service and also set up a skin care centre in my home in Titchfield Common. After a few years, I needed more space so in 2007 moved and set up the Salon in Bishops Waltham.
Within my treatments I have used Dermalogica since 1999 so I am familiar with the products. In 2013 I introduced Thalgo treatments and products to the salon to offer clients a diversity of skin care choice and offer face and body treatments that are more pacific targeted concerns for clients needs that we didn’t offer previously.
I am qualified to teach beauty therapy and enjoy this aspect of my work too, passing on my experience and business knowledge
I am very passionate about Beauty therapy and Holistic treatments and thoroughly enjoying doing all treatments. I don’t just offer pampering treatments but also treat people with daily life problems that find it can be quite debilitating without my regular treatments.
Come in to the salon and I will be happy to answer your beauty or treatment questions and help you with your needs.
I look forward to meeting you.
