All LA BIOSTHETIQUE products are dermatologically tested in the best European laboratories; the prescriptive ranges directly address hair and skin problems with pure, effective and powerful natural ingredients. Superb training and education transforms beauticians and hairdressers from professionals to unique experts – giving them the rituals and the tools to deliver a truly distinctive client experience.

Like many fashion trends LA BIOSTHETIQUE was born in Paris and the links to seasonal inspirations remain strong, with a NEW release of colour, make-up and hair collections every season.

About Emily Banham – Owner & Director

Emily Banham

From always wanting to be hairdresser as a little girl, my father got me a Saturday job in a salon local to myself at the age of 13. Loving the job, I never wanted to be anything else.

My career started as soon as I left school, qualifying in my NVQ 1,2 and 3. My dream was always to have my own business and to be on stage doing “show work”.

Moving from a few salons gaining experience in each individual business, I got fed up of working for someone else, then desired to go alone, and set up on my own! It was the most scariest career move I’ve ever made, as sometimes in life you always doubt your ability. It was only a very small salon because my fear was having debt around me, and I could cover my overheads if anything were to go wrong.

Then Profiles was born – my baby before having children. I can honestly say it was the best career move I’ve ever made. One thing that Profiles made me realise is that you should always believe in yourself and what you do!

The product company we use is La Biosthetique and the reason for me choosing that particular brand was their educators, they used to come into my previous salon and always give 110% in their work and always went that extra mile, which is what Paul and Sandra did for me. They are very much like a FAMILY.

La Biosthetique is definitely a TOTAL BEAUTY CONCEPT.

La Biosthetique held auditions for a UK ARTISTIC TEAM in 2009, I was really nervous but I went for the audition and got in!

FANTASTIC! My dreams had come true!

La Biosthetique have TRENDS twice a year, Spring & Summer and Autumn & Winter. The trends involve four looks in each collection, involving cuts and colours.

Profiles is the only salon locally which can offer these looks unless other salons wish to have training. As ambassadors for La Biosthetique we teach other salons the trend hair styles, touring the whole of the UK.

My colleague Karen also auditioned for the Artistic team in 2011 and got in as a colourist.

We have to showcase our looks each year involving an excellent hair show mainly in June whereby other salons, friends and family come to view the trends, and a congress which is once a year, included in that is business meetings.

La Biosthetique artistic team currently completed our colour genius, so training is really important to us as a salon and a brand.

Profiles work alongside La Biosthetique and like the personal touch but more importantly like working together as a FAMILY.

At our LA BIOSTHETIQUE salon you will find:

  • customised scalp and hair care treatments
  • hair loss treatments
  • professional colour
  • premium skincare
  • aromatherapy based skin and body treatments
