Back in 2018 we launched the Evo Naming Competition, open internationally to celebrate the outstanding work of our Bio & Evo Nail Technicians, giving the winners the opportunity to have the name of their choice on a new Evo bottle.
We were delighted that Tamaryn Hausberger @salon.exceptionail representing Bio Sculpture GB was one of the twelve winners selected.
Below is Tamaryn's winning entry
We caught up with Tamaryn to get her story behind her name choice 'Rhiannon' as well as her journey with Bio Sculpture, and her tips on creating expert, beautiful manicures.
What made you choose the name for the Evo Bottle Competition?
Rhiannon is named after my daughter, she is my little miracle, the baby I thought I’d never have. After meeting my husband quite late in life and then suffering repeated miscarriages Rhiannon came along following a very traumatic birth and a misdiagnosis of Down Syndrome. She is my little fighter and I’ll be honoured to show her this Gel in her name when she’s older. She absolutely loves watching me paint nails so perhaps she will follow in my footsteps.
Why did you decide to start a career in nails?
I saw it as the perfect way for me to showcase my creative side and make money at the same time. I love making other people feel pampered and relaxed.
What made you choose Bio Sculpture?
At the time I studied (almost 18 years ago now), Gel nails were fairly new to the industry and most people wore acrylic. The idea of a healthier alternative to acrylic appealed to me along with the fact that Bio Sculpture was one of the first Nail Gel manufacturers with such a vast array of coloured gels.
Why does a career as a manicurist suit you more than your previous career?
I was a Legal assistant and tv extra previously but these both required very long days. Now that I’m a mother being a manicurist is the perfect career to fit around my daughter giving me the best of both worlds.
What are your top three tips for someone wanting to make a career change and become a manicurist?
Practice, perseverance, patience and most of all passion. As with everything the more you practice the better you will be at your craft but I love having such passion for what I do too. It’s lovely to go to work enjoying your job. Always remember that it takes time to build up your confidence and client base and there are always new things to learn so be patient and persevere. It will be worth it.
How many hours a week do you work - Do you work part time to fit around anything else?
I work around my daughter so usually when she is at school
How do you find your clients?
Word of mouth and social media.
What is your favourite nail art trend at the moment?
I’m loving jelly nails but I think marble nails are still my favourite trend so far.
