Lully Lou’s Beauty

Before I started at Phoenix I had no children, was working in a pub with no real balance to my life, life was dull…..

At the start the paperwork overwhelmed me and I thought I had no way of completing this it was about to be another failure in life …

Working with Phoenix was very organised welcoming and like a family the owner louise was very approachable and that’s something I have not come across before.

I finally found myself and Louise made me realise no matter how many hurdles you face or how much you struggle with the normal reading writing and general understanding she would a way to make it work for me and it did…… the best result I got from Phoenix was finding my inner confidence and perfecting hands on treatments rather than thinking I could never achieve it -louise did that for me.

Beauty by Vicky

Hello, my name is Vicky Arrowsmith. I am a fully qualified City and Guilds Beauty and Holistic Therapist with over 10 years experience.  I am a registered Member of  Associated Beauty Therapists Ltd.


After working in Customer service roles in the City, I’d wanted a complete change of career for some time and had always been interested in Hair and Beauty. I enrolled with Phoenix School of Health and beauty started training on a Saturday school in 2002 Beauty Therapy Level 2 with Louise.
I left my job in the city and my first job after qualifying was part time as a therapist at Synergy Salon in Brentwood whilst further studying at Phoenix for Level 3 Body Massage, Aromatherapy and Indian head and post graduate courses. I wanted to gain experience and speed in a salon but always knew I wanted to eventually work for myself at home.
I qualified for my Level 3 and worked at First steps for a short period and then started some mobile work. I also set up a room from home and built up a good client base over a few years. I had a career break for a few years in 2011 whilst having my children. In Nov 2015 I restarted my business from home working school hours and evenings which fits perfectly with my family life. I absolutely love my job and working for myself gives me such flexibility. Louise has been there for me every step of the way and most recently supporting me for refresher and post graduate courses.

Beauty @ home

Before Phoenix I worked as a Solicitor then left that to have a family. I began my beauty journey with a manicure and pedicure course at Phoenix which gave me the bug and led me to doing several other courses including gel polish, eye treatments, facials, massage and eye lash extensions. I trained both during the day and did an evening course taking my time and am now so happy with the way my career is progressing.
