Currently closed and not taking appointment bookings.
No date has been given by the Scottish Government for the return to work of the beauty and aesthetics sector but it is likely to be in the third wave of returners. (tentatively, August/September)
I am actively investigating and planning policy changes to address safety and respiratory and cross infection hygiene.
I will announce here and on Cherry Tree’s Facebook page any changes to the above as soon as I get new advice.
Good health to all my clients and enquirers and lets hope that the world comes back up the right way soon. In the meantime, enjoy what you can of our unexpected leisure. To the many people on my caseload who are in essential professions, thank you and imagine that I’ve just given you a fiver – on your way home from work, go into the nearest shop and buy yourself a small treat. Enjoy it and pretend it’s from me. x

Choosing an Electrolysist can be difficult.
Whilst it is essential to look for a practitioner with the best credentials, it is also a good idea to check consumer hair removal web sites and forums to get some insider tips.
You could try:
Hairtell is an international forum for consumers and professionals to share information about hair removal in all its forms (electrolysis, laser, waxing, shaving, patented devices etc) It contains a wealth of knowledge.
Hairshoot Community Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/433337213406384/
The latter is a Facebook Community group by Cherry Tree and international colleagues & may be of help initially as we have many specialist electrolysists poised and ready to help with any queries posted. Our specialists (500+) are based all across the UK, Ireland, Europe, South America, the US, New Zealand, Canada and Australia.
Membership of the B.I.A.E. (British Institute and Association of Electrolysis) www.electrolysis.co.uk provides reassurance that you have found an Electrolysist who is a specialist, and who has successfully taken further practical and written exams to gain a Diploma in Remedial Electrolysis (D.R.E.) and membership of the Institute.
The specialist belonging to the BIAE is also obliged to undertake CPD (Continuing Professional Development) as expected in all professions.
