I just want to take a moment to share some fantastic news:
In a totally unexpected twist of fate, I’m thrilled to say… we did it! DermaGuru has been awarded Bath’s most glamorous honour, in the form of the 2021 Bath Life Award for Hair & Beauty.
As the awards ceremony started, it was fantastic to hear all of the creativity, innovation and initiative coming from our city – Especially the Third Sector Group’s Platinum win, proving that when Bath pulls together, w punches above its weight.
We were prepared for an evening of great food, wine, and conversation – a great way to let our hair down and break out of lockdown fatigue. Naturally, we weren’t disappointed.
When it was announced that DermaGuru had won, I hadn’t prepared a speech and had to wing it.
The reality is that, even with all of the trials, tribulations and effort put into the last three years to carve out my niche in skincare, my instant reaction was that it would all mean nothing without you – my lovely, loyal, brilliant customers.
I’ve always said that the most important part of my job is 1-to-1 consultations: helping you to explore your skin on a deeper level, to perfect and formulate the best solution for your skincare issues and concerns, letting the beauty within shine through your skin.
Nicole’s help building up DermaGuru’s Instagram and social media to keep our conversations going over the past couple of years has been invaluable. It has been a significant part of adapting to lockdown with online consultations, homecare boxes, and more.
Despite everything Covid has thrown at us, you’ve managed to keep the show on the road – it was only natural to thank you all.
I also wanted to say a special thank you to my family. Mum and Dad for having faith in me, and pushing me to my potential, and my partner Nate for that much-needed financial stability – and getting me across the road safely after the afterparty at Sub 13!!
