THE VANITY CASE team is Karen, Lisa, Cara, Harriet, Kim & Sydney

Karen Rotchford

Director, Beauty Therapist, Beauty Educator & Independent Cambridge Weight Loss Consultant

Karen is the business owner and is an IHBC qualified Beauty Therapist.  Karen has been working in the Beauty Sector since 2001 and in 2010 added weight loss consulting with The 1:1 Diet Plan by Cambridge Weight Plan to her list of qualifications and in 2021 progressed with a Teaching qualification.

Karen consistently strives toward keeping the client at the forefront of the salons priorities. "I opened the Aldridge salon in 2004 with the vision of creating a warm and welcoming environment where clients could feel 'at home'. I have a passion for the industry and I'm enthusiastic about growing the profile of the business and my staff. 13 years later and the second salon was opened in Clayhanger and yet both salons feels like its a new venture every day I walk through the door. I enjoy my work and love having a chat with my extremely loyal clientele."
