Hi, I am Philine Strauss. Proud owner of Philine Strauss - Hair, Makeup, Skin.
I grew up on a farm in Ceres. After school, I left for Stellenbosch and received
my Diploma at Isa Carstens Health and Skincare Academy in 2005. In 2006 came the opportunity to start my career working as a facial specialist for Steiner Leisure Ltd on Celebrity Cruises. I always dreamed of opening my own salon. After my return to South Africa, I started working as a receptionist at Attorneys and soon worked my way up to being their bookkeeper. I missed the beauty industry and started doing treatments for family and friends after hours.
During this time I went for several courses in skincare, makeup and hairstyling.
In 2014, after living my dream, part-time, I got the opportunity to turn my dream into reality by living my dream full time.
People would say to me "why on earth would you leave a day job to work any day, all day, every day"? Well, my answer is simple: " I have not worked for a day since I left my full-time job." When you love what you do and combine it with passion for what you do, then you will never work a day in your life.
I take pride in my work and always strive to give my best.
I would never be able to live my dream if it was not for my family standing next to me. I thank the Lord for giving me, such a great family. I would like to thank my husband, my Mom, my Dad in Heaven, my 2 brothers and my 2 sisters-in-law for always helping me, believing in me and supporting me A big thank you to all my clients that came this far with me. Looking forward to many more years.
See you in my treatment room
All my love
