About Us

BronwenBe Beautiful was opened in March 2008 by Bronwen Chapman-Goldsmith.

Bronwens background was in nursing, but trained in hair, nails and beauty in California, USA in 1987.

Her knowledge of nursing complimented her training in beauty by having a better understanding of the human body.

Since then she has gained 30 years experience in the beauty industry, working in many different salons through Sussex and Surrey in that time.

Since founding Be Beautiful, Bronwen has enjoyed the many challenges it has brought. She has a passion for helping to make people look and feel her best – as much as it is therapy for the clients to experience this, it is also therapy for Bronwen to make her clients feel great about themselves when their treatment is finished.

Personal life experiences have helped Bronwen to empathise with her clients and her motto is “I’m like you – I want to feel welcome, relaxed and in experienced hands when I receive a treatment”

Bronwen believes in using excellent quality products with a proven reputation, and is always on the look out for new products to pass onto her clients – but not before she has trialled them herself.

The nail industry became Bronwens forte. When she returned from the USA, in 1991, there were very few nail salons around, and Bronwens training in the States gave her a head start in nail knowledge.

Bronwen gained ITEC qualifications in massage, but has more recently been trained in Extreme waxing by Kim Lawless, “The Wax Queen” of the UK, and introduced the treatments into Be Beautiful in 2009, using Kims technique and the highest quality wax, Perron Rigot. She also has a City & Guilds Teacher Training Course behind her to aid and train fellow therapists, or trainees who have worked for Be Beautiful.

Bronwen believes it is not just about being a great therapist, but also about understanding people and giving them the best experience whilst having a treatment no matter how big or small the treatment is.
