This year at Ella Baché HQ we choose to celebrate the joy in the beauty all around us, but more specifically we choose to celebrate our Ella Baché Salon Owners and Therapists. If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that hard work, passion, grit and resilience and all the things needed in order to thrive – and this is something our wonderful therapists have delivered in spades.
Introducing Mahsa, from Ella Baché Chermside. After an abundant and award-winning career in fashion and design Mahsa found herself working in New Zealand, continuing to work in the design industry she decided to expand into beauty services. Ready for change, Mahsa moved to Australia and began looking to work in salon - landing herself at Ella Baché Chermside. Described as one of the ‘warmest and kindest’ therapists many clients had ever had it is no wonder her diary books out far in advance, bi-lingual and fluent in 3 languages she relates to her clients that travel from afar just to see her, and quite often she will have regulars popping in from day to day, just to say hello!
So, congratulations Mahsa; our QLD State Therapist. For key expert skin tips and tricks, we interview Mahsa on her skincare must haves, favourite ingredients and what will bring her joy this festive season.
