If You Want To Feel Relaxed, Pampered & Beautiful, Skin Deep Beauty Is The Place To Be!

Frances Widdicombe, owner and solo staff member at Skin Deep Beauty Therapy set up shop in Stratford back in October 2018. Whilst working for Clarins as a Mobile Beauty Therapist for several years, Frances travelled all around the UK working in different stores.

But her favourite was in Warwickshire’s Leamington Spa. She fell in love with the area, the people and the community and so, decided to set up shop here. We’re so pleased she did.

After working more and more for Clarins in the Leamington Spa store, Frances was drawn to the beauty of Stratford town. We’re not surprised. With so much going on, plenty to do and see and a wonderful community of local businesses, Frances found her home for Skin Deep Beauty Therapy.

Fitting right into the welcoming community, you can find her therapy room within The Salon Hairdressers in Stratford. She works closely with the lovely team of hairdressers and reception staff but she is the only staff member of her local beauty business.

However, that’s not forgetting an incredible support network behind her; Frances proudly boasted about her two very important, behind the scenes supporters when we spoke to her. Keeping things close to home, Frances’ sister Tick runs her social media accounts and her husband Dave works behind the scenes to help with all the technical stuff including the Skin Deep Beauty Therapy Website.

With 15 years of experience working in the beauty industry, Frances is so happy to be able to offer all the treatments and services she loves within her own business, providing people with a space to relax and feel their best. She has worked all over Australia and the UK for the likes of Clarins, Aveda, Ella Bache, Sothys and Decleor, developing her passion for pampering people and her expertise in delivering exceptional treatments.

The Covid-19 pandemic put plans on hold for Skin Deep Beauty Therapy. With all close contact services forced to shut up shop, Frances took to the internet to continue connecting with her customers and expanding her knowledge. During lockdowns, she had the time to do her research into the products she uses to make sure she selects the very best for her customers.

When you visit Skin Deep Beauty Therapy, you can indulge in face and body treatments with the use of her newest skincare range, THALGO Marine skincare. Making positive steps to ensure the products she uses are kind to the skin and kind to the planet, THALGO is free from parabens, mineral oils, sulphates and GMOs and is committed to reducing plastic waste with recyclable packaging.

Frances offers a full range of massage treatments with the use of her new skincare range, including Pre and Post Natal Massage, a Reviving Foot and Leg massage, Aromatherapy Full Body Massage, Swedish Full Body Massage and Lymphatic Drainage Massage which helps to boost our immune system, breaking down toxins and fatty deposits.

There has been care and attention to detail put into all elements of Skin Deep Beauty Therapy. Frances loves meeting new people, helping them to destress and unwind in whatever phase of their life. She has provided treatments for brides on their wedding day, mothers to be or anyone looking to feel pampered and relaxed.

Offering a full range of treatments such as manicures, pedicures, OPI Gel Nails, SiennaX spray tans and wedding makeup; you will leave Skin Deep Beauty feeling your best. For special occasions, like getting ready on your wedding day, Frances can also arrange to come to you!

You can even choose Skin Deep Beauty’s Wedding Package for your big day; including 5 hours of treatment time in total where Frances will pamper you with the full works. You will receive a GelColor OPI Manicure and Pedicure, An Aromatherapy Full Body Massage and Facial, Eyelash Waxing and Tinting.

Frances will also provide you with a Sienna X Spray Tan for your Hen Night and again for your Wedding Day. What a way to start off your wedding celebrations, feeling and looking your best.

But it doesn’t have to be just those special occasions that you choose to pamper yourself. You deserve to feel good all the time. Frances offers a wide range of facial treatments including her popular anti ageing facials which are non invasive and relaxing, with results becoming visible from the very first treatment.

In the next twelve months, this local beauty therapist will be working hard to rebuild and regrow her business, taking on new customers and spreading awareness of her popular treatments and skincare ranges.

She also told us she’ll be getting involved in some events as restriction measures ease, so keep your eyes peeled for what she’ll be up to over on her social media. (Facebook and Instagram)
