"Over two years ago I lost my hair due to the autoimmune disease, Alopecia Areata. Losing my hair was not something I ever expected to happen and it had a big impact on my self-esteem.
The worst part was when I lost my eyebrows and eyelashes. When the hair from my head disappeared I still looked like me - just a bald version of me. But when I lost my eyebrows and eyelashes, I no longer recognised my face in the mirror. I felt that I looked washed-out, drained, ill, and worst of all, like someone else - a stranger.
I continued like this for over a year. Then I found out about Karen and the permanent make up services she offers. I decided to get the brows and eyeliner and it was the best decision I ever made. Karen has given me my face back. I can't believe what a difference the eyebrows have made to my face and the eyeliner gives my eyes some definition lost due to the lack of eyelashes.
I look like me again, still unfortunately a "bald me" but a more confident one! I would recommend Karen to anyone thinking about permanent make up. As far as I'm concerned she's a magician and she certainly worked her magic on me!"
“I now blend in. Nobody gives me a second look. It’s great!”
“I never really realised just how down I was, looking at myself in the mirror: bald and scarred, I really didn’t recognise myself. I felt older than my 53 years and miserable. Eventually, I rang Nouveau Beauty to discuss tattooing my eyebrows.
I have to say I was nervous but Karen and her team were marvellous, so reassuring and kind.
I love my eyebrows. I now look in the mirror and smile. I feel confident again, having my eyebrows tattooed was a small, but significant step in getting me back.”
“My friends are in awe of Karen’s work – they think it’s amazing! After my treatment with Karen I had a surge of confidence and optimism. It was like I had been given an injection of joy! I’m so happy – I’ve got my face back! I look forward to my appointments with Karen.
We have a rapport and she has such good humour, warmth and a comforting manner. We have an affinity and we laugh all the way through my treatment!”
