Amrik Rayatt, eyebrow and lash specialist talks to WEL about taking the leap from Cardiff to start a new life in West Essex

Who are you and what do you do?

My name is Amrik and it gives me great pleasure to say I’m the the very proud owner of Amrik’s Brows & Lashes. I am within Beauty on The MIll in Woodford Green where I carry out a range of eyebrow and lash treatments which also includes semi permanent make up. I am certain that my clients would agree that I take great pleasure in what I do.

Where do you live and why?

I was born in Southampton, lived in Cardiff for a while then moved to Woodford Green with my two gorgeous girls to marry my lovely husband. He supports me in all the craziness that comes with running my own business. I love it here in Essex!

What is the best part of your job?

I can very honestly and proudly say that I absolutely love with a capital L, everything about my job. Many clients walk in feeling somewhat nervous about having a brow treatment because they have had a poor quality experience in the past. It is very satisfying knowing I’ve put a smile on their face and given them back their confidence when they leave. Well groomed eyebrows are so important as it completely changes and frames your face.

What’s the worst part of your job?

Definitely when I have no appointments left on a day a client needs. However, I do try my best to accommodate all.

What do you do after work?

I have two beautiful teenage girls, so after work I’m back to mum mode doing all of those jobs that us busy mums do including cooking, cleaning and nagging!

Do you have a fitness regime?

I’ve joined the gym- I may even go one day!

What is your beauty must have this season?

My beauty must have is my Fab Brow Kit and Liner. (I will always have my brows on even if I don’t wear make up). I also can’t live without my Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel and Daily Microfoliant

Do you have a guilty pleasure?

My friends and family will tell you I do love a good coffee shop. So if you’re buying me one, it’s a skinny cappuccino extra hot and wet!

Where do you like to go with the girls?

I like good company and good food. As long as we have a laugh, there are so many amazing local places to choose from, we are really spoilt for choice.

What is your biggest achievement in your career so far?

Starting my own business was one of my biggest aims for a long time. I started off working from home along side my job at Shavata in Wales. When I moved here I was happily transferred by the company to the flagship studio in Knightsbridge. It was great, as I had the opportunity to work with a lot of celebrities. When the opportunity came up with the lovely owner at Beauty on the Mill, Claire Hurst, I took the plunge and I haven’t looked back since. It’s been a year and my business is growing fast. I now also offer semi permanent make up which is great for enhancing natural features.

What is your New Year resolution for 2016?

My New Years resolution is to visit more of the country. There are so many beautiful places to visit and I would love to try making my own wine and crushing grapes with my bare feet, apparently it is meant to be fun?

How are you celebrating the New Year?

Everyday is like a New Year, but we must end the last one with a bang! I will be dancing my socks of with some great friends. The start of the New year will be spent with loved ones and a fry up!
