I’ve decided to do a new “Tried & Tested” blog series featuring locally made products & small business that I love. If you have any suggestions of awesome small businesses to check out – please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org ♥
I met Carla Peake a few years ago when she was based at a tattoo studio in Claremont called No Regrets. At the time she specialised in laser tattoo removal & I happened to have a pesky bird on my hand that was really bugging me. Fast forward a couple of years later, and not only is that pesky bird now gone:
But Carla has also expanded her business in leaps and bounds and today she is owning it as the ultimate brow master & luscious lash lifter operating as Alternative Aesthetics:
I tried Microblading for the first time toward the end of 2017 & really loved the result, but for some reason I just never got around to getting a touch up done. However, when I heard that my girl Carla had started doing brows, I knew that’s who I was going to entrust with my microblading round 2:
Nervous about getting your brows done? No need. Do yourself a favour & go and check out her Instagram Account (@alt_aes) for some incredible brow transformations and lots of before & after pics. Her work speaks for itself. Alternatively, if you’re not on Instagram, you can also see before & after pics on her Facebook page over here.
Another awesome service she offers is lash lifts & tints. A low cost, super easy alternative to lash extensions. I’ve got one booked for as soon as the lockdown ends because I really love this treatment. A lash lift is basically a “perm” for your lashes which makes them look double their length & the effect lasts about 6 to 8 weeks. She posted a brilliant video on Instagram just 2 days ago which shows the whole process which I definitely recommend watching. Once you see the end result, you’ll be booking an appointment for yourself as well, I’m sure of it.
Obviously, with the covid-19 lockdown still in place, she’s not able to operate at present. BUT, you can still show her some love & support by making a booking for when the lockdown comes to an end, or even better, by purchasing a voucher which you can then use when you’re ready.
She’s running some great specials at the moment:
Then as if that wasn’t all fantastic enough already, Carla also recently teamed up with Danny from Nine5 Nails who joins her in studio every Wed & Thu to do blow-you-mind nails like these:
Danny’s prices are also really affordable as you’ll see from her price list below:
For bookings or to purchase vouchers, you can contact Carla on:
- WhatsApp: 060 554 6988
- Email: email@example.com
She’s also currently doing online consultations (Mon to Fri) so she can assess your specific brow & tattoo removal needs and advise you on options. To book an online consultation, just pop her a WhatsApp message.
So yeah, after we get out of this – there is NO excuse for any of us to have sub-standard brows, lashes or nails. See you at Alternative Aesthetics ladies! 😉
