Stacey Pickess (Owner)
I have been a beauty therapist since 2002. I first went into working at Springs Health Farm (Champneys) for one year which gave me experience in the health spa environment. I went on to work in a salon in Swadlincote and also worked as a freelance therapist. I also worked for Clinique as a counter manager for five years at Heaven Scent which gave me more experience and knowledge in make-up application and skin knowledge.
I was 27 years old when I felt I was ready and had enough experience to go on to work for myself. In 2009 I opened Safersun@Avocaspa. I have furthered my education in doing HD Brows, LVL Lashes, Thalgo face and body, Mii make-up, wet shaves and spray tanning. Also including holistic therapies such as reflexology, Indian head massage and Hopi ear candles.
In 2007 I was unfortunately diagnosed with skin cancer which is why I chose to call the salon Safersun. Here we promote safe tanning and use a number of different spray tans such as Sienna x and Fake Bake. Following this I have had an article written about me in the Daily Mail and the Sun. I have also appeared on Daybreak a number of times with Lorraine Kelly, Dr Hillary, Dan and Kate to make people aware of the dangers of unsafe tanning.
