Ten talented nail techs in Mid Cheshire made the shortlist for Best for Nails with Blue Beauty Cheshire in Knutsford taking the coveted crown.

Siobhan opened Blue Beauty Cheshire in 2018 on Meadowsweet Road in Mobberley having grown up in Manchester and moved to the area in 2009.

She started as a makeup artist while working in admin and accounts but always had the desire to work for herself, so she trained in nails and hair extensions enabling her to build a client base.

Siobhan, who is 37, said: “I wanted to work for myself so I could dictate my own hours and still have social life, take my children to school and choose to work with people I enjoy spending time with.

“I had my son just as a I left school and went to college while raising him, studying hairdressing and Swedish massage.

“I always wanted to be in the beauty industry – it’s something I’ve always been passionate about.

“I am a girly girl and love seeing a transformation, making a woman feel good about herself.”

Siobhan loves creating artistic nails for her clients and adds personal touches to the treatments she offers.

Siobhan said: “My clients like walking around with nails that nobody else has.

“I have always had set prices so that people can express themselves and enjoy having a treatment without any hidden charges.

“I work in a very affluent area and know I could charge a lot more but my clients are more important to me than out pricing them to appear more desirable.

“The best thing about my job is that I get to catch up regularly with the girls that I want to catch up with.

“My clients have become friends - they tell me their life stories and their secrets and they know that I don’t judge them and won’t ever break their trust.”

She said: “I was even more humbled when I heard that I’d won the award.

“It made me realise that even when I work long hours and try and fit people in so they can feel and look nice - even if it means I don’t have breaks some days - that I am appreciated and it makes it all worthwhile.
