Welcome to L & A Evolution, a beauty salon in Maidenhead
owned by me, Lucie Hughes
Everybody has a bit of a story, a bit of a journey, and I would like to share a little of mine with you.
I am originally from the Czech Republic and my working journey started as a lawyer in a big international publishing house in Prague. After working there for 10 years, I was offered the chance to take over their branch in Athens, Greece as a Director. I barely spoke English at that time, but I saw the challenge and I took it. It was one of the toughest times of my life as I was completely alone, I didn’t speak their language, I didn’t know the culture. Looking back at the 4 years I spent there it taught me a lot about myself and definitely helped me to grow as a person.
And then life changed again.
As we know, love is blind ☺ and in 2008 I met my British husband, so I resigned from the big corporate world and moved to the UK. From being the Director of a company, a well-traveled independent businesswoman, I became again a stranger in a different country, a stepmother of two children and a housewife. The children needed me, so the only option was to work from home. I was always a hands-on person and always passionate about helping others, so I decided to completely change my career again.
My big passion was Body Sugaring, and because I couldn’t find this here in the UK, I decided to start to offer the service myself. I got all the necessary beauty qualifications and slowly started to build up the business. After a few years working hard and building the client base, and really understanding all about skin and hair removal, I researched, studied and added Laser hair removal to the business which nicely complimented my service portfolio. If you have any unwanted hair, I am your lady to sort it out for you ☺. And because this might not feel like the most enjoyable treatment, I decided to add something nice and pleasurable - Advanced Facials - and I got really lucky to be able to work with one of the really high-end market brands ‘Germaine de Capuccini’.
Years of hard work and dedication have paid off and I am now the proud owner of my salon.
I love my clients and they know that I am always here for them.
If you have any questions, or would like to find out more, I’d be delighted to hear from you.
Until then, I look forward to welcoming you to my salon.
