My affinity for skin started at a young age – my mum’s bathroom cabinets were filled with potions and lotions that I couldn’t keep away from. Already enthralled with their magical contents, I would mix them into new “formulations”. As I got a little older I began creating facial treatments with £1 face masks from my local market. To think now, we are the biggest stockists of Environ Skincare in the UK creates a surreal path to look back upon.
To the surprise of no one, my first job was working in a beauty salon at 14 years old. Raised within an entrepreneurial household, you could say I was born to do things my own way – I was already thinking about how the beauty industry could improve – giving my ideas to the salon owner and continuously learning by taking on every task I could.
Inspired by those beauty therapists who I’d hoped to emulate, I veraciously sought the highest qualifications. I met my match in Clare, and together we projected our future. Identifying patterns in the way different skin types achieve results – including my own skin – we began making the discoveries that would guide our skin health philosophies and galvanize RÖ’s success.
Over 10 years on from the launch of our first location, our research has never ended. We’re thrilled to accept the honour of achieving the IIAA Salon of Excellence award this past year.
CLARE DE GROOT
I always knew that beauty was in my future. As a child I was enamoured by the skincare routine my mum would perform every evening. Wasting no time, at just 16 I began my qualifications. Never any doubt that skin was my calling – by 17 I was one of the youngest trainees to complete Decleor’s esteemed training academy – when the brand was a forerunner in skin therapies around the world.
They say not to go into business with your friends, but when Claire and I met we both knew that together our talents were amplified. Our mission was to make every client say, “that was the best facial I’ve ever had!” I’m proud to say we’ve made that dream a reality.
Having seen first hand how the beauty industry doesn’t always value their staff or provide them with the knowledge they need to help their clients achieve their desired results – like everything else we wanted to do things differently. As we began to grow we created our training program that combined our clinical, results-driven approach with our stress-reducing treatment trademarks. Devotees to education would be an understatement – it’s a way of life at RÖ.
RÖ SKIN has been my decade long love affair – the satisfaction of our clients’ incredible skin health results continuing to fuel the fire.
