Joelene knew she would always end up in a profession that would allow her to take a more hands-on approach working with people, which meant that an office job was certainly out of the question. She began her journey into beauty in her native South Africa completing her diploma in beauty therapy.
After achieving her CIDESCO and BABTAC qualifications, Joelene took the big step of moving to London in 2003. She jumped straight into working in a salon around Knightsbridge, until eventually being recruited for the team at The Refinery.
Since 2005, Joelene has been an integral part to the salon’s therapeutic service offering including aromatherapy and reflexology, as well as the traditional facials, massages, manicures + pedicures.
