Anna Nickless

Hi, I’m Anna

I have a passion for the beauty industry and with over 20 years’ experience I want to help as many beauty salon and spa owners create the business and life they deserve.

I owned four successful high street beauty salons for twelve years, which I sold in 2019, I have a teaching qualification, I have worked as a beauty therapist, spa manager and much more. I know all of the challenges you are faced with, but I also know how to achieve a profitable business and a balanced home life.

I am a certified NLP practitioner which I feel really helps with the consultancy side of our business.

I have great attention to detail, exceptional organisation skills and am driven by results.

I love to spend my free time taking long walks with my husband, two girls and Frank my chocolate Labrador.

Bonnie Platts

Hi, I’m Bonnie

I have also worked in the beauty industry for over 20 years, starting my career in Devon where I grew up.

I began as a Saturday girl in my local beauty salon, where I really found my love of beauty. After qualifying as a beauty therapist, I worked in many spas and salons across the UK and Bermuda.

I am exceptionally organised, have a real eye for detail and a passion for the operational side of salons and spas. Making sure that you have a happy team and a profitable business is my real focus.

In my spare time I love to travel with my husband and two children and take regular trips back to visit my family in the south west.
