About Me

NikkiaAs a young woman I was always interested in the beauty world. I painted my nails often and took care of my feet. It didn’t dawn on me until I went on a family trip that I wanted to be a nail technician. We were going out for an event and I was doing my nails and then my auntie wanted hers done than my cousin and it lead me to come back and start doing nails, which was in 1997. Over time I bought my first car which was a Suzuki and opened a charge account at Sunshine Company for $50. I started with 7 people that allowed me to use them as Guinea pigs(LOL)! What a job I would do! My painting skills where a mess and it took me about 3 months to get it right. I can say that I’m not book smart and I didn’t go to school, so I let my clients read to me as I performed the service. Talk about trust! As one would say, “I have the gift of gab!”

In 2004, I was given the opportunity to go away to college for massage therapy, at the Canadian College of Massage & Hydrotherapy where I completed an 18-month program and graduated with my certification in Massage therapy in 2006. While I was in Canada, I also went to a beauty school called Be Exchange where I studied to perform manicures, pedicures and body waxing. Being in the beauty school allowed me to have multiple skills so I could perform many services in my profession.

Once I completed my training, home I came and worked for the Bermuda Land Development Corporation (BLDC). As an eager graduate it’s rarely hard to just jump right into your profession, everyone always wants experience. I will never understand how you get experience if you just graduated from College. On another note, I did a couple of months there until I applied at Gillian’s for a part time position which I received. I worked in my field at Gillian’s for 18 months before I decided to start my own business in August of 2006.

My journey has been challenging, exciting and so rewarding that I am grateful for where I am today! I have reached majority of my goals in life and now on new path to complete some more. Always stay focused it can be exhausting at times but you must stay the course. Therapeutic Touch is my dream and I plan on being on the road for as long as I can keep people beautiful!

Most Frequently Asked Questions

What can I put on my nails to strengthen them?

I used the O.P. I. System so I recommend the nail envy line that works for any type of nail.

What is a good lotion?

My personal favorites are thick heavy lotions or creams for winter months and light creams or lotions for summer season. Shea butter, coconut oil whipped creams or jergens is a light lotion. It's always depends on the client due to even skin is different.

How often should I exfoliate?

You want to exfoliate at 2-3 X a week. If done too much or aggressively yew I'll be stripping your natural oils away. We oil need a little oil in our skin.

How frequent should I get a manicure or pedicure?

I advise for the winter months once a month for a pedicure and every 3 weeks during the summer. For the hands it depends if you're going to a function or you just want to clean up around your cuticles, so every 3 weeks is fine or 4-6 weeks for clean up maintenance.

How often should I get a facial?

I recommend at Least 3 times a year and do proper cleansing at home.

Will waxing hurt?

Of course waxing hurts! You are removing hair from places it's meant to be. It is a short quick pain than subsides.

What should I do before or after waxing?

I recommend exfoliating the area a couple of days before your appointment. This allows the hair to come up with ease and leaves your skin supple. I like to use a blend of oils to put on the skin with lavender and rosemary or majoram essential oils in my blends to calm the skin and conditions it.

How often should I be waxing?

Waxing depends on which part of the body you want to remove the hair. Some areas need 2-3 weeks of a time frame. Where others are spaced every 4-6 weeks.

What happens if there's a break out?

I like my clients to keep lavender oils in there home and Hydrocortisone. Usually it's common if it's your first time. But it does go away.
