Saturday Shout Out: Rochester Beauty Therapists.

Todays Saturday shout out is for salon local to us, in Rochester in Kent. Salonesque is a salon in North Street, Strood which offer nail treatments, brow treatments, lash lifts, microblading as well as may other treatments. We have had the pleasure of training three lovely ladies from there.

Talia Vazquez Garcia

First from Salonesque through our door, in 2019 was Talia Vazquez Garcia.  She trained with us in her VTCT level 4 in Microblading.
Talia formerly worked in admin and finance before joining her Mum Tracey in the family business in 2016.
Talia is very artistic, and a perfectionist so retraining as a nail technician was a smooth move for her.

Now Talia also specialises in all things brows at Salonesque.  She provides a full range of treatments from tinting to her highly-skilled, perfect set of Microbladed brows.


Louise Smith

Louise Smith started her training with us this year.  She has already completed her VTCT level 2 Diploma in Beauty Therapy to a very high standard.

Before retraining as a beauty therapist, Louise had several admin jobs but didn’t feel that was the right path for her.

While studying with Allen and Walden, Louise has been lucky enough to work part-time at Salonesque, gaining the valuable industrial experience she needs.

Now she is fully qualified; she offers many treatments in the salon to include, facials, lash lift and tint and gel polish with nail art.

Louise is now working towards her VTCT level 3 Beauty Therapy so she can expand her treatment provision in the salon.



Salonesque is a family run business originally established in 1991 by mother and daughter team Sylvia and Tracey.

Sylvia has now retired, but Tracey runs the salon and offers a wide range of advanced aesthetic treatments. We were lucky enough to have the pleasure of meeting and training Tracy too this year when she gained her level 4 dermaplaning qualification with us.
