Sophie trained as a beauty therapist at the prestigious Yorkshire College of Beauty Therapy in Leeds, where her progress was filmed by Sky One’s television series BEAUTY SCHOOL

Sophie graduated in 2004 with Honours and was awarded CIDESCO Graduate of the Year.

In 2007 Sophie reached the final of the British Beauty Awards Beauty Therapist of the Year on her first and (so far!) only entry.

The Beauty Room has grown and expanded since opening in 2008, adding new services and technologies to ensure that we continue to offer the most advanced treatments available. The salon has become a true family affair, as Sophie now works alongside her mum, Jill and sister, Sarah. We are a close-knit team with a strong bond of family and friendship which gives The Beauty Room its uniquely warm and welcoming atmosphere, often remarked on by our clients.

 Our Philosophy…

“To offer each client a personal service tailored to their individual needs. We want our clients to enjoy the best treatments available, using the highest quality products alongside the most up to date technology. We believe that every client booking a treatment, from a 15 minute eyebrow shape to a full day package, should be lavished with the same care and attention to detail. Simply come and relax in beautiful and tranquil surroundings away from the noise and inaccessibility of York city centre.”
