THE VANITY CASE team is Karen, Lisa, Cara & Lucy

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."

Lisa Jones

Hard working, focused and extremely well organised, Lisa is a pleasure to have around and a real asset to our team.




Cara Riley


Cara completed her NVQ 3 Beauty qualification at Walsall College, achieving many subjects with Distiction.

Having had an interest in beauty from a very young age, Cara now joins The Vanity Case to develop her passion and further her skills.

A welcoming and warm smile will put you at ease from the beginning of your treatment and you will leave feeling like you have gained a friend.


Lucy Abercrombie


Lucy wanted to join an apprentice scheme so that she could learn all about salon life whilst being taught to a high standard, At The Vanity Case and The Heart of England Training Academy, this is exactly what Lucy will achieve.  Lucy already has knowledge in Gel polish, Acrylic nail extensions and Classic lash extentions and we know that she will go on to learn many other treatments for you to enjoy.

I know you will help Lucy achieve her exam units when it comes to needing models for practise :)
