“My wonderful clients have been so supportive and their messages since I received the awards have meant everything to me. Thanks to all of them and to my family and friends who have been with me on this wonderful journey.

“I can’t wait to be able to open the doors of the salon again but until then my online students know they are going to have a very happy teacher.”

Andrea established her home-based beauty room in Broadbridge Heath in 2014 and provides tailored manicure, pedicure, nail and facial treatments as well as a range of tailored massage and reflexology treatments in what she calls her ‘little oasis of calm’.
