In 1999, I came to London for my International Trade Degree, after my study, I felt I have learn everything but don’t know anything. I then went to study beauty which was what I have always passionate about. On the 2nd day after I graduated, I got a part time job in the Langham hotel, London, I worked all the way up to the management role in a short 2 years time and managed a team of 23 in the Spa. Along with the team, we have achieved 5 star hotel spa titles and a high AA standard. I was truly enjoyed my time in Langham hotel, I have been always lucky enough to attend to many external and internal trainings. Alongside of my diplomas in beauty, I have trained in many major skincare ranges, Elizabeth Arden, Aveda, Aromatherapy Associate, Jessica Nail, Thalgo, Guinot, Dermalogica, Elemis… I have also attended to Asia for numbers of training such as massage and holistic treatments.
I then met my wonderful husband and moved to Northampton in 2007, I worked in an American company- Regis for 9 months, help setting up new beauty department in the exiting hair salon whilst I organized my wedding. After I got married, I decided to be a lady of leisure (thanks to my husband 🙂 ) and learn more skill toward my beauty career, so I started my Semi-permanent make up training and Micro-blading Eyebrow course in 2008. I have so much satisfaction through doing Semi-permanent makeup treatments, it helps so many cancer patients who suffering hair loss from chemotherapy, it helps many people feel good, look good and gain more confidence. After a long break, I began my beauty business in Overstone Golf and leisure resort in 2010. Being Chinese and loving the Oriental/Asia treatments with high standard of service, I decided to expand my business and set up a authentic Oriental day spa where can provide authentic eastern and Western treatments. Nov 2011, Fong Spa Northampton was born. A Luxury unique Day spa in the heart of Northampton, where you can relax in the ambient lounge before and after the treatments, which can be exclusively for your use only.
With my 19 years of beauty knowledge, I personally train all highly qualified therapists who joined Fong Spa, from a high standard hygiene waxing to our signature treatments and customers service.
My aim is to ensure all our clients enjoy every single visit to Fong Spa and it become ‘THE PLACE’ to go for your beauty treatments and pampering day in Northampton.
