“I love a varied selection of treatments however I am passionate about adding value to our clients’ lives and making them feel good about themselves. I truly believe you have to feel good on the inside to shine on the outside. I enjoy hands on treatments such as a massage, and glamorous treatments such as make overs and lashes. I’m looking forward to excel my beauty career by learning new skills at Bedale Beauty and looking forward to meeting you”




We welcome Jo to our team on reception. Jo joined us in August 2022 and has very quickly settled into the role. It will be a steep learning curve for her and we ask all to be gentle and patient with her. She is welcoming and will do her very best to accommodate your needs. 




Alex is on Maternity leave as from 25th Nov 2023 …………

Joined the team in 2016 bringing keen passions towards massage and facial techniques Alex added Brow sculpt to her portfolio summer 2021. Don’t be fooled by Alex’s petite size, she packs a mean pressure in her massages, clients regularly request Alex for massage as she hits the spot targeting those tension spots. Her attention to detail shows in her skills with Nouveau Lash extensions, let her transform your eyes with a classic set. Alex loves makeup and would tell you its her hobby and not her job!  We all would agree Alex would be our choice to have a make over with, let her transform you or teach you her tricks of the trade.

At Bedale Beauty you will always feel special with our friendly professional approach.

I look forward to my pamper session with Donna, always so in tune with what I need and I walk away feeling refreshed, devitalised, few inches taller and so relaxed. Her knowledge about the body and skin etc is equally fantastic and I love our chats 💞, the world needs Donna in a tonic I say.

The reception staff are always so helpful and polite and ready to return to work with their set of keys at a drop of a hat 😂.
