Tracey and Isla met in 2006 while working at The Marine Hotel in Troon. Very quickly they developed a great working relationship from which a close friendship also formed. Over the last 15 years, Tracey and Isla have continued to work on and off together, providing mobile pamper parties, wedding hair and makeup packages and also within the salon. It’s not all work for these two, however! Not only has their working relationship go from strength to strength, but they also have a lovely friendship and love going for dinner together, drinks and walks with their dogs.
who are we?
Tracey began her Beauty Therapy career in 2001 when she attended Ayrshire college and completed her NC in Makeup. She then went on to gain her HND in Beauty Therapy, also at Ayrshire College. Along with her studies, Tracey worked part-time at Stobo Castle Health Spa, Peebles. This was quite a commute but Tracey thrived on the opportunity to gain incredible experience so early into her career. Thereafter, Tracey worked as a Spa Therapist closer to home at The Marine Hotel, Troon and Bowfied House Spa, Howwood. Following the birth of her son, Tracey decided to take a slight change in direction which saw her working in Social Work. Her love and passion for Beauty Therapy never left her as she continued her own mobile work along with Isla. She also makes regular appearances in the salon with Isla when they are in need of extra staff!
In her spare time, Tracey loves getting dolled up, getting her glad rags on, and heading for days out and dinners out with friends and family. Family holidays to the sun are one of Tracey’s absolute favourites – something she is very much looking forward to getting back to post Covid! Meantime she is loving exploring the beauty of Ayrshire with her dog.
Isla began her career in Beauty Therapy in 2005 when she left school and attended The Glasgow College of Nautical Studies to obtain her HND in Beauty Therapy. Prior to starting her own Beauty Therapy business in 2010, Isla worked in various therapist rolls and gained great industry experience. This includes a Spa Therapist at The Marine Hotel, Troon, Clarins UK LTD, Glasgow and Pebble Spa, Lendalfoot. Since starting Isla Thomson Beauty in 2010, Isla has worked out of 2 salons in Troon, Ayrshire as well as spending 3 winters in Val d’Isere, France working for Progression Physio and Massage.
Isla is very active and absolutely loves the outdoors. Her hobbies include playing hockey, hillwalking, skiing and walks along the beach with her dogs. She is also regularly referred to as ‘a social butterfly’ as socialising and spending time with friends and family means the most to her.
