Originally from South Africa, Samantha studied at Jill Farquharson college in Durban for 2 years, graduating in 2006 with diplomas from Itec, the Confederation of International Beauty Therapy & Cosmetology (Cibtac) and The British Association of Beauty Therapy & Cosmetology (Babtac) - the highest international accolades in Somatology and Beauty. Sam also completed a diploma with SAAHSP, the professional body representing the Skin, Body & Nail Care Industry in South Africa. Whilst in South Africa, Sam trained and worked with Dermalogica and Environ skincare until she left to move to Scotland in 2008 where she worked with the Darphin skincare range.
In Spring 2010, Sam moved down to London to train with skincare industry innovators, Guinot, at their official training school in Ascot. The clinic where she worked was the very first to use Guinot in the UK, being a Crown of Crown clinic, with the brand now dominating the industry and widely recognised as leaders in the field of anti- ageing skincare. During her training, Sam worked with Diamondtome, IPL and Endermology, treatments which all use hi-tech equipment and give fast results and, as a result, she is adept at using Guinot’s electrical, high end machines.
Sam joined Napiers Beauty Therapy in 2012 and is now our Senior Aesthetician, heading up our fast expanding team of aestheticians, where she works at the cutting edge of modern skincare, achieving the highest possible results for clients in our clinic. In 2016, she was awarded the title of Guinot Regional Therapist of the Year for all of Scotland. Click here to read more...
Always striving to find the very best new products and treatments, Sam introduced the organic Eminence range to Napiers Beauty Therapy in May 2015. We are one of the few clinics in Scotland to use these exclusive organic products from Hungary and stock the full professional range, concentrating particularly on natural and organic peels.
Caring for the skin is Sam’s passion, having always had a profound interest in the way in which the skin can be encouraged to renew and heal itself but having no interest in using botox, fillers or any artificial enhancements. She would much prefer to help and guide a patient in how to get the results they desire naturally, with more long term, non-invasive treatments and therapies. Sam takes a holistic approach to beauty, discussing diet and lifestyle with her clients as well as treatment plans and follow up care. Treating Acne is one of Sam’s particular areas of specialism and she has worked with many clients in this area to great effect.
