About Me

Hello.  My name is Laura Riddell.


I first studied Makeup Artistry at John Casablancas to become a makeup artist for the movie industry. I then went on to study esthetics at Kosmetae Academy of Aesthetics knowing that this was a trade that I could grow in and be able to work from home when I had children to raise. So here I am, a wife and mother of 2 amazing boys. I strive to be the best that I can be, so I am constantly learning newer techniques to make myself that much better for all of you. I learnt how to do eyelash extensions by studying from Enlightened Lashes, and recently have done training from Alexandria Professional for sugaring hair removal.

I have been in the Esthetic industry since 2002 and I still love what I do. I enjoy meeting new people and many of my clients have become such great friends, they're practically family now. Clients have met my husband and my kids and they have all been welcomed with open arms.

So if you are looking for a place to get a service done and to grow a friendship and bond with myself and my family then this is the place for you. If you are looking for super fancy fru fru with champagne and grapes and steam rooms to relax in before your treatments, then I would say thank you for checking me out, but this isn't what you are looking for. But you are still welcome to come and see if I can win you over. I strive to give my all for everything I do, and I hope to be able to bring satisfaction and relaxation to every service that I do for you.
