Meet the Team
The Makeover Palace Hair & Beauty Team
Emily started working at the salon, when it was still Ubuntu, in January 2016. In 2017 Emily was promoted to the salon manager and in April 2020 became the new owner!
"It has always been my dream to own a salon. I started my qualifications in nail technology in 2007, shortly followed by other beauty treatments and hair qualification. I am always keen to learn new skills and treatments to offer to my clients. I enjoy meeting new people, working as a team and getting to know my clients. I like to make my clients feel cared for and good about themselves with the time I spend with them."
Sara is our resident Lash and Brow expert at Makeover Palace.
Sara trained to be a beauty therapist after leaving school and returned to beauty following a career break to Makeover Palace.
Sara says "I decided to try something else but came back to what I enjoy doing most, this is when I started working at the Makeover palace – here I undertook my qualifications in Lashes and Brows, which are the 2 treatments I specialise in".
Sara has a young daughter and most of her free time is spent with her, watching her grow and learn. When not looking after her daughter or her clients, Sara loves seeing friends, going for dinner (with cocktails) and shopping.
Courtney is the Makeover Palace colour expert, specialising in highlights and balayage, which she enjoys the most out of the hair services that we offer.
Courtney started her training when she was 16 years old and was fully qualified just 17 months later.
Courtney says "Hair has always been a true passion of mine and I love being able to make people feel amazing and confident just by giving them a fresh new look."
When Courtney isn't making her clients look and feel fantastic, she enjoys going to the gym, socialising with her friends and shopping (who doesn't?!).
In 2014 Diane began her training in Beaconsfield before moving to an independent salon in the centre of High Wycombe earning her level 2, level 3, and also a teaching qualification in hairdressing.
Diane moved to Oxfordshire from Buckinghamshire with her partner for his work, and after a small amount of time away from the professional industry she is back doing what she loves. She enjoys doing restyles and funky, colourful transformations, something to enhance your style!
Diane sees hair as a tool for helping you look how you feel, beautiful! When Diane is not at work, she is enjoying time with her partner and their dog. Together they love the outdoors, walking, cycling, and even motorbike riding!
