I'm Alkeda, founder of Oh So Pretty which was established in August 2018. I have always loved all things beauty and growing up with 4 sisters, I would do their hair and make up even if sometimes it ended up in disaster! At 16 I spent my one week work experience at a hairdressers wanting to pursue a career in hairdressing or beauty. However, after a week of just sweeping hair I wasn't sure and so instead I continued down the path of education. After school I went to college and then university studying event management where I also learnt a lot about business and enterprise.
Fast-forward to 2018, I decided to use my education and pursue my love for beauty and after years of having eyelash extensions myself I decided this is what I would start by offering, followed by lash lift and tint as well as nail enhancements. I offer all my beauty treatments from my home based salon in North Warnborough, Hampshire and I love being able to provide my clients with a safe and comfortable space for them to relax and enjoy some 'me' time.
