Sam King, Executive Director

"I have achieved a lot since joining Elajé as they offer advanced courses in cutting and colouring, as well as the business side too! Another major factor for me is that I have been able to adjust my working hours and days to accommodate my needs."

Lucy Cook, Executive Lead Stylist

"Since starting work at Elajé in 2014, myself, and the people around me, have noticed a huge difference in my personality and character. I’ve become more confident with myself, especially when interacting with clients and staff. I love working here and am beyond proud that I am part of Team Elajé!"

Rebecca Meek, Beauty Therapist

"The training given to me by my mentors is of an outstanding standard and has already taught me how to greatly improve on nail painting techniques and bring my manicures up to an excellent standard."

Fiona Richardson, Executive Director

"Elajé has provided me with many opportunities to develop my skills, including courses to help me gain new experience and build my career as a hairdresser. It is hard work but if you’re willing to work hard and put in the effort, you will be sure to get amazing results in return!"

Raffaella Morelli, Beauty Therapist & Front of House

“I love working at Elajé because we are one big family. You are pushed out of your comfort zone, but only to make you a better and more confident person, in personal life and work life.”

Gemma Sebley, Executive Director

"I love being able to make people feel good about themselves through their hair- making a difference to their everyday life."

Annabel Deans, Aspirant Stylist

“Best decision I ever made! I have been at Elaje for two years now and I wouldn’t change it for the world. You work hard and play harder. Choose Elajé if you want to become the best version of yourself and excel in your career.”

Alana Martin, Director Stylist

“I would say my journey at Elajé has helped me grow as a person. It has helped turn me from a girl into a woman, and from being very fragile to finding my voice. I just continue to grow everyday in work and in my personal life and have Elajé to thank.”

Chloe Morgan, Stylist

“I joined the Elajé family over two years ago and I love working here. The support given by Julia and my teammates is incredible, whether that be personal or work-related. We are pushed daily to challenge ourselves, which drives our personal development.”

Aimee Deans, Young Therapist

“I will forever be truly grateful for finding a team and work place like Elajé. I work with the most supporting and extraordinary group of girls, we have all worked so hard to build an unbreakable bond. It’s what makes Elajé truly special and unique.”

Saffron Henry, Lead Stylist

“I have had endless opportunities at Elaje, including learning life skills like body language, communication, teamwork and lots more that you will carry with you forever. Plus EVERYONE respects and appreciates each other.”

Emily Welton, Front of House & Young Therapist

“Since joining the team at Elaje, I have achieved an incredible amount. Not only in achieving all of my beauty qualifications, but gaining in confidence and going through personal growth.”

Rebecca Meek, Beauty Therapist

“I first started at Elaje with no Beauty experience, I would not be as successful as I am in my current career if it were not for finding Julia and Elaje. I started Elaje as an inexperienced, shy 18 year old and now I’m a confident, highly knowledgeable 27 year old Beauty Therapist. I'm proud of how Elaje has helped me to grow.”

Shannon Wright, Young Stylist

“My hair dressing journey at Elaje has been amazing; the training and support you get is unmatched and I don’t think you would find it anywhere else! I am so grateful to be a part of it.”
