Welcome to Beauty Resource, an online UK based directory that aims to connect visitors with the beauty professional most suited to their needs.
We aim to be the go-to source for all beauty news, tips and services across the UK and Northern Ireland. We know that more and more people are making the Internet their first port of call for all things beauty, so we're here to make the experience simpler, safer and more effective for everyone looking for a professional.
Our story began in the early noughties, at a time when a friend of ours was going through a traumatic time and needed to see a counsellor. At this point, finding a professional online was a bit like flicking through a backlit version of the Yellow Pages: there were pages and pages of names and numbers, but a total lack of the information we actually wanted. We thought about how useful it would be to have a directory that told you exactly what it is each professional has to offer, what they've done in the past and how they work now. Social networking sites detailed this kind of in-depth information about people, so why didn't business directories? In 2005, we formed our sister site Counselling Directory and since then, have successfully gained thousands of satisfied members from across the country. Our sites now receive over 200,000 hits every month and this number is always increasing.
Our ambition at Beauty Resource
We are proud to have connected members of the public with professionals that suit their exact needs, and we hope that we've made the search process that little bit easier.
We soon realised that our idea could apply to other industries we were passionate about. We feel strongly that finding a beauty professional that meets our exact needs is of the utmost importance. Often, treatments and procedures can be a little intimate, so for this reason, we wanted to offer full and detailed profiles so potential customers could get a good feel for who the professional is, before booking a treatment.
We revolutionised the current way people search for beauty professionals online, by thinking about what we personally wanted from a beauty directory.
What didn't we want?
- We didn't want to have to sift through pages and pages of names and numbers.
- We didn't want to have to navigate our way past intrusive advertisements and flashing banners.
- We didn't want to have to call up any numbers to find important details such as fees or concessions.
What did we want?
- A simple, instant way to find a wide range of beauty professionals.
- A directory we could trust.
- In-depth details including photographs, fees and extra information about the professional, including experience and qualifications.
- The ability to search for a professional and find out a little about who they are and how they work.
- Information about treatments, beauty tips and the latest beauty releases.
...And so Beauty Resource was born.
