2013 – Current
Gloss Beauty Guernsey was founded in 2013 and run by Angele Hicks. Angele has been in the hair and beauty industry for the past five years, working in a hair salon and fully qualifying as a hair stylist in 2012. Although Angele loved working as a stylist, her passion has always been nails and in 2012 she attended a full nail technician course at one of the top beauty schools in the UK, the Southern School of Beauty. She qualified as a nail technician with expertise in manicure and pedicure, gel extensions, acrylic extensions, silk and fibreglass and nail art.
Spending the summer of 2012 in Ibiza, Angele practised applying extensions and getting creative with nail art. Upon returning to Guernsey in October she joined a busy salon as a nail technician, building up a loyal client base who loved her attention to detail and flawless nails.
To expand Angele’s knowledge of beauty she attained a qualification in spray tanning in 2013 at the same beauty school. Angele quickly started applying the spray tans to friends, family and clients – all of whom loved their streak-free, natural looking tans.
Initially a mobile beauty service Angele now runs her own salon in St Saviours and has added hairdressing and HD brows to the range of treatments offered.
