HANNAH’S STORY

Founder & Director - Cedars Beauty Rooms, London
Graduate Class of July 2013 - CIBTAC & CIDESCO Beauty Therapy Diploma & Spa Programme

Hannah was selected to join the world-renowned Steiner Transocean team as a Spa Therapist within weeks of graduation. Inspired by her teachers back in London and keen to launch her international spa career, she flew out to Canada to meet her first cruise ship in October 2013.

Passionate about beauty and eager to develop her skills and experience, Hannah learned so many new treatments, spa and retail techniques whilst on-board, all the time sailing around New England, Florida and the beautiful islands of the Caribbean. Days off would be spent with the spa team exploring the beaches, restaurants and shops of America’s East Coast and the Caribbean. Her next career break came when she landed a top job at celebrity-haunt and five-star Akasha Spa, Conservatorium Amsterdam. She learned some amazing treatments including Ayurvedic and Lava Shell massage and got an incredible experience living abroad.

After a short stint at the exclusive Berkeley Hotel & Spa London, Hannah was headhunted once again. Landing a starring role aboard one of the largest cruise ships in the world, Hannah was known as an ‘Elite Therapist’, working in the members-only five-star spa haven. Performing Elemis facials for premium guests, she maintained the highest revenue producing treatment column out of all 35 spa therapists on board.

After returning home from a career filled with glamorous destinations and a new horizon every day, Hannah stumbled across an incredible opportunity to fulfil a dream come true. In October 2016, an amazing space became available and she leapt at the chance to start her own beauty salon business.

“It's beautiful and it’s everything I've ever wanted. It's grown from strength to strength and I'm becoming busier and busier. We recently did an event and raised £400 for a local charity which got the salon a lot of recognition.”

Having Juanita as my teacher was so inspiring, she’s the one who gave me the idea to go on the cruise ships, and I would have never done this without her!
