Kim Duffy – Owner
I’m Kim Duffy. I’m 54 years young, married with two grown up children. I live in Bracknell, Berkshire surrounded by my family.
My story started a couple of years ago when a good friend of mine said she was going to have her eyebrows tattooed. I was intrigued. I’d never heard of this before. My friend was obsessed by her eyebrows and it became our little joke as each morning, depending on how long it took her to pencil in her eyebrows, depended on how late she was for work! She didn’t have any eyebrows and was constantly checking them throughout the day in the mirror to see if they were still there!
She invited me to go with her whilst she had her eyebrows tattooed. I was mesmerised by the whole procedure. Not only did I find it amazing watching this transformation taking place, but more importantly the effect it had on my friend. It changed her life. She wasn’t late for work again!!
I was hooked. I started to research semi permanent makeup and spent time researching training centres. I visited the Dermace stand at the NEC, Birmingham, in May 2015 with the intention of checking out the Dermace trainers and the company. I’d already decided I was going to train with Dermace, but seeing them in action on the stand cemented my commitment to become a semi permanent makeup artist and I booked my training. I trained with Dermace in August 2015 and Jessica, my trainer, shadowed me every minute throughout my training. She was awesome and very inspiring. I left the Dermace training centre buzzing with enthusiasm. As a perfectionist with an artistic flair and a love of makeup coupled with patience, an eye for detail, a steady hand and a desire to help people this is fast becoming a passion!
I’ve finished my model portfolio and I’m hugely appreciative of all the models that help me with my portfolio. I’m sure I will have long and rewarding relationships with my models as well as all new clients in the future! I’m fully insured on all the treatments listed on my Treatments page. I’ve been in the beauty industry since 2001. I’m presently studying my VTCT level 4 in Micropigmentation in readiness of this industry being regulated. As semi permanent makeup becomes more mainstream it’s essential that the general public are aware that anyone with a VTCT qualification is fully trained, certified and insurance to perform these procedures.
I love love my eye brows, Kim is not only great at what she does she has time to make you feel comfortable n special. Kim’s lovely, caring and a friendly person. She’s a new friend to me, Eye liner n lips next.
Just had my brows and eyeliner done. Absolutely delighted. Professional, friendly and comfortable. Highly recommended. Btw almost painless – couldn’t believe it. Will definitely return and tell everyone I know.
I have just been to see Kim for my second eyebrow tattoo removal, and I can’t wait to have them re-done with her. A very lovely lady and certainly knows what she’s talking about. I’ve had real disasters in the past but I’m so glad I found Kim. Would highly recommend.
I went to Kim today for a Dermaplane facial. Kim’s warm and friendly manner made me totally at ease and the treatment was lovely. My skin looks amazing, thank you Kim!
Just had my 2nd touch-up appointment for my eyebrows and I absolutely love them! I decided to go for semi-permanent make-up in preparation for my upcoming wedding. Kim is an amazing talent, put me at ease and really listened to what I wanted. In the first appointment she perfected the shape and then by the end of today’s session I left with the brows I wanted I would definitely recommend Kim’s service to anyone thinking about taking the plunge and going with semi-permanent make-up.
