Helen Golisano – Founder, Owner and Director
“2016 brings me to 35 years in the beauty industry, first working as a qualified Beauty Therapist and now having progressed my career as a trained Paramedical Therapist, Salon Owner, Industry Mentor and Industry Board member.
Skindeep became my dream after I’d been working as a Therapist for almost 10 years. During my time talking to clients, I realised that beauty therapy then was really for those only who were very well off financially. It also occurred to me that there was a lot of superficial treatments that didn’t actually even scratch the surface of correcting clients’ skin concerns. I wanted to make beauty treatments and skincare affordable for everyone – and the ‘fluffy facials’ bored me!
I was lucky enough to meet an inspirational lady by the name of Mandy Gray (nee. Jarman) who was then the Marketing Manager for a Cosmetic Company, and she told me how salons in the USA had started to open within shopping centres, and were becoming more and more competitive in terms of price. I listened, believed, got inspired and went for it… and that was the birth of the first Skindeep salon.
Our inaugural salon opened in Whitfords City shopping centre and within eight months of opening, was awarded the title of ‘Australia’s Number 1 Clarins Salon’. It was an amazing feeling to know that we were on the right track, and our loyal, happy clients backed that up with their smiling faces and glowing skin!
From one small salon in Whitfords City Shopping Centre, to four salons across the Perth metro area, we’ve achieved so much in a short space of time – but have always remained true to our core values.
We value our team and have many Therapists who have been on board for over 10 years or more. We are a very training focused group with regular in salon and external trainings occurring ongoing. ” Our industry is one which is ever changing new ingredients, technologies and treatments which we owe it to our clients an dour selves to stray a breast of them all”
In September 2016 Helen opened WA’s first and flagship Lip Lab store in WA. At the Lip Lab Perth you’ll be able to create your very own personalised shade of lipstick or lip gloss. Using a specialised approach to creating lipsticks and blending them together, your professional lip colour consultant will help you choose, mix and apply your custom product. for more information please visit http://www.theliplabperth.com.au/

Ready Helen’s Story
Debra Miller – Cosmetic Tattooist
Deb says, “As a cosmetic tattooist, I’ve been helping people feel great about the way they look for over 20 years. I can conceal flaws on your skin, rectify defects and enhance your natural beauty using an amazing process often referred to as cosmetic tattooing or semi-permanent make-up.
As we mature, various factors may cause skin defects to occur. The most common are sun damage, pigment dysfunction and scarring. Cosmetic tattooing is an easy, hygienic and safe way to correct this. It’s also a wonderful way to draw attention to features that are naturally outstanding.
Cosmetic tattooing also has a lasting natural finish that will captivate the beauty of your face!”
Laura Butlin – Perth Central Salon Manager

Originally from the UK, she completed her National Diploma in Beauty Therapy Sciences in 2005, and has been a practicing Therapist ever since. She has also extended her training to cover a range of massage, nail technician, waxing, skin rejuvenation and paramedical therapy treatments.
“If I could choose one treatment from Skindeep, it would definitely be a Hot Stone Massage. It makes your mind feel like you’ve had a holiday and your body feels rejuvenated. It’s the perfect boost for anyone, anyday!”
