I travelled to London in 1999 to study an International Trade Degree and after I had completed my studies, I felt I had learnt a lot but did not really have a direction for anything in particular. I therefore decided to study Beauty Therapy as I had always held a passion for beauty. A day after graduation, I obtained a role as a Beauty Therapist within the prestigious Langham Hotel in central London and within two years, I had worked my way up to a Management position and was responsible for managing a team of 23 Beauty Therapists within the Spa. Working together with the team, we managed to achieve a 5 Star Hotel Spa Rating and a High AA Standard Award. I truly enjoyed my time working within the Langham Hotel and gained a high level of knowledge and skills within the industry in my role there.
Over the years, I have trained with a large number of major skincare and beauty companies including Elizabeth Arden, Aveda, Aromatherapy Associate, Jessica Nail, Thalgo, Guinot, Dermalogica and Elemis and have attended a number of training courses in Asia, including Massage and Holistic Treatments as well as numerous external and internal training courses.
After moving to Northampton in 2007, I secured a position working for an American company in which I was responsible for the setting up of a Beauty Department within an established Hair Salon. Once the salon set up was complete and running smoothly, I decided to concentrate my time on learning further skills toward my beauty career. I commenced my Semi-Permanent Makeup training and Microblading Eyebrow training in 2008 and have experienced a high level of satisfaction carrying our Semi-Permanent Makeup treatments, which have helped a high number of patients dealing with hair loss as a result of cancer treatments and enabling them to feel better about their appearance, look good and gain more confidence.
In 2010 I established my beauty business in Overstone Golf and Leisure Resort and being Chinese and loving the Oriental/Asia treatments with high standard of service, I decided to expand my business and set up an authentic Oriental Day Spa providing authentic Eastern and Western treatments in November 2011, namely Fong Day Spa.
Having over 19 years of beauty knowledge and skills, I personally train all qualified Beauty Therapists within Fong Day Spa, ensuring all treatments are of a high standard. My aim is to ensure all clients enjoy every single visit to Fong Day Spa and for it to be the place to go to for beauty treatments and pampering within Northampton.
I am proud that Fong Day Spa is often referred to as ‘a hidden gem’ within the heart of Northampton and to have a business that offers a luxurious and unique Day Spa alongside the provision of exclusive, high level beauty treatments.
