Stunning owner of MNX Pro, Rachel Ferran – who very deservedly won big at this year’s glitzy Hair & Beauty Awards, is the newly crowned ‘Beautician Of The Year.’
Rachel’s expanding hair & make-up studio is going from strength to strength. Having opened up on her own just last year, her host of amazingly talented hair & makeup artists (we love Leanne in particular) has been even further expanded, in addition to a new receptionist, alongside a hot, newly revamped studio – with amazing lighting makeup room.
Rachel took time out of her (extremely) busy schedule to take on our ‘My Belfast’ challenge…
Belfast, Northern Ireland
