Laura Thomas //
Salon Owner

Laura became a fully qualified beauty therapist at the age of 17 where she began her career at a 5* Spa in North Wales. Strong foundations as a Professional Therapist were built after promotion, discovering the importance of bespoke treatments for clients. Taking the plunge, Laura opened her own salon in the seasonal village of Benllech, offering beauty treatments to a loyal following of clients. Noticing a niche in the market, Laura trained with HD Brows and was one of the first to offer this luxury service in the area. Developing a strong clientele and an outstanding reputation for brow services, clients were coming to Laura from all over Wales and England. Expansion came next, moving business to the city where 'Vamp' was born!

Laura's aim was to create both a relaxed and professional salon, where a unisex client base could receive premium treatments. The entire team at Vamp have received training from the UK's leading companies; Kim Lawless and Nouveau Lashes. 

With 9 years salon experience, an extensive client base covering all of North Wales, Laura has gained 'Pro Stylist' status with HD Brows and been awarded The People's Choice Award and Beauty Salon of The Year Award by the North Wales Young Business Awards. 

High standards, continued passion for the industry and valuable relationships between the clients and team are what gives Vamp its excellent reputation.

 

Dani Hamilton //
Salon Manager

*Currently on maternity leave, and will have something new to bring to the salon upon her return!*

Danielle set out to develop herself academically studying Forensic Psychology at University, but soon realised she needed an uplifting career in a positive environment where she could have an impact on people with immediate effect. Danielle retrained and became fully qualified in Beauty Therapy at 19. Having worked in a North Wales 5 star spa alongside her training, she moved on to manage a Llandudno salon. Here she veered away from holistic therapies and developed her skills in treatments that provided instant aesthetic results and realised the growth that gave her client base. After being offered an excellent new training opportunity in a fresh and ambitious new venture, Danielle transferred her management skills to Vamp!  

Training with Kim Lawless and Nouveau Lashes she developed herself as a Lash Extension technician and an Intimate Waxing technician, rapidly gaining a loyal client base. After she was awarded the number one spot in the 'Top Ten Lash Extension Techs' throughout Europe, her reputation went from strength to strength. Laura and Danielle combined soon earned Vamp it's reputation as the hub for brows and lashes.

 

Buddug Lewis-Jones // 
Beauty Therapist

Buddug was living in Australia working as a nanny when she realised she had creative flair. On her return to North Wales she qualified as a nail technician, developing her skills quickly and was renowned locally for her perfectionism and steady hand for custom nail art. 

Initially beginning her journey at Vamp part time to take on the overflow of clients, she quickly built a client base of her own and became an established member of the team. Harnessing that perfectionism she turned her hand to lash extensions and never looked back, with a natural ability for all things technical, she delivers each and every time to the highest standard. 

Despite being fully committed to the salon for hours on end, she still finds time to work as a Healthcare Assistant, her energy is endless! Buddug's enthusiasm and passion resonates throughout her work, focusing on the theory behind all things practical, from consultation to aftercare. Her straight talking sense of humour and tales of her travels are loved by clients and colleagues.

 

Zoe Thomas //
Salon Receptionist

Zoe qualified as a Beauty Therapist and Nail Technician 4 years ago and focused on creative nail art for the most part of her 3 years in industry. 

Being the most organised of the team she's naturally assumed the role of receptionist at Vamp, dealing with all aspects of business administration! Not a detail gets missed due to her high standards, running a state of the art appointment software all of your preferences and requirements are discretely recorded to ensure you get the best out of each and every visit. 

Making sure Vamp runs seamlessly is a hefty task, our social media in itself is a full time job! None of this phases Zoe, she ensures the salon is always looking it's best and every client has the best experience each and every time.
