This month, Karen Pedley of Red Rejuvenation Skin Clinic shares her passion for all things skin.
Q: How long have you been in business and what drew you to the beauty industry in the first place?
A: Two months. Red Rejuvenation is a “spin-off” from my Hair Salon, Splash of Red that I have owned and operated for the past 11 years. Clients of the Salon were asking me to expand our beauty services in the Salon. I was continually recommending clients on where to go, but realised that something more was needed in Mornington.
Q: What do you value the most in your business?
A: Reputation within the community, the loyalty of staff and the quality of services and products.
Q: How do you find the right balance between your personal and professional life?
A: I enjoy what I do within the industry so that I find that my social life mixes well with my personality.
Q: How has dermaviduals assisted your business?
A: dermaviduals have been fantastic from the outset and we consider the product to be all we expected and more. Simone Vescio has been particularly helpful and I consider her to be very much a mentor to me in the Beauty Industry.
Q: Being based in regional Australia has advantages and disadvantages. What attracts you to this area?
A: We are in a unique part of Victoria on the Mornington Peninsula and consider ourselves to be “separate” and yet close enough to the city (40km) to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Q: What keeps you inspired professionally?
A: I continually research new products and techniques and thrive on learning anything new within the industry.
Q: If you had one piece of advice for people considering a career in the beauty industry, what would it be?
A: Put your self-enjoyment and quality of your services foremost.
Q: New products and equipment enter the beauty industry almost daily. How do you keep up with this and how do you determine what is hype and what is genuine?
A: Intensive research before introducing anything new into the Salon and making sure of the bona fides and integrity of suppliers.
