Meet The Team

Chelsea Stevens

Hi I’m Chelsea, I am the newest Beauty Therapist at VSL Nail and Beauty Salon. I was previously working in a law firm for 16 months as a Legal Assistant after qualifying with a Law Degree in 2020. However, I soon realised that this was not the career path I wished to follow and instead realised that I really wanted to pursue a career in Beauty Therapy.

My passion has always been in Beauty Therapy and I was lucky enough to qualify in my VTCT Level 2 and 3 NVQ Diploma in Beauty Therapy whilst getting one to one training at the salon. I chose to work here where I’ve been a client before and where I as a client experienced treatments by staff with great knowledge and great services in a wonderful atmosphere.

As a beauty therapist I would like to make each clients experience as wonderful as I experienced here and I look forward to welcoming you at the salon.

Vanessa

After a varied career history in Hospitality, Hotel Management, Estate Agent, Receptionist and then PA to a General Manager, I started my career in beauty in 2010 and immediately knew I had found my niche.
I have built my business over the past 13 years from carrying out eyelash extensions at the end of a sofa at my childhood family home at Epsom Downs, through to several property moves with dedicated treatment rooms and working at a Hairdressing salon in Sheen near Richmond, Surrey.
My vision was to create a friendly, warm and welcoming environment which makes my clients feel special and is hassle free. From where to park through to removing any anxiety about visiting a new salon for the first time.
I have had the opportunity to carry out treatments on some amazing individuals which include celebrities, however please don’t ask questions about who, as I have signed NDA’s!
I specialise in Intimate waxing and have a regular loyal client base, who I have been waxing for over 10 years.
I have now combined the experience and knowledge that I obtained during my hotel and hospitality career and create a new combined experience named ‘VSL Urban Retreat Spa Days”
I look forward to hosting you and your group at a Spa Experience as I am passionate about delivering a first class customer experience.

Kasia Bernat

I came to England in 2007, that is when I went to high school here in the uk to finish my GCSEs. Following my education I decided to become a beauty therapist. I started my beauty career in 2014 and I’ve been working at VSL Nail & Beauty Salon since 2019. I mainly specialise in eyelash extensions,  however I enjoy all the treatments such as: manicures, pedicures, waxing, facials etc. I regularly attend dermalogica training at Leatherhead to make sure I can deliver the best services for my lovely clients. I look forward to looking after you when you come to the salon.
