Sue Adams

Sue Adams is an award winning beauty expert, and entrepreneur, with over 25 years’ experience in the beauty industry. She initially trained in London, where she worked as a make-up artist for Lancome at Harvey Nichols. Whilst there she won the prominent Golden Rose award in recognition of her skills in make-up application and beauty, and she was chosen to do the make-up for Kylie Minogue while on a visit to the store.

 In 1999 Sue opened Image Beauty Salon, which quickly established itself as the leading salon in Ipswich. In 2012 the salon moved into larger premises, significantly expanding capacity, allowing Image to offer a larger range of treatments, as well as offering training in the new Image Academy.

Renowned for its professionalism and high standards, the new salon has enjoyed a year of remarkable growth. Sue’s energy, and passion for the beauty business, means she is constantly looking for innovative and original ways to improve the client experience at Image Salon. Sue strives to push the boundaries of what is expected of a beauty salon, and her achievements were recently acknowledged when Image Salon won the most prestigious award in the country – UK Salon of the Year Award – from trade magazine Pro-Beauty.

Added to this Image also won a local award – Best Independent Business 2012 – and a second national award – Best Nails in a Salon Environment 2013 – from Scratch Magazine.

Sue continuously updates her knowledge of techniques, treatments and products, and has attended training courses in London, New Zealand, Australia, and LA. Ensuring the team at Image also have continued professional development and the best training is a priority, enabling Image to maintain the highest standards of service for clients.

As resident beauty expert in Vanilla magazine, Sue writes a monthly column answering reader’s beauty queries; she has also been interviewed on local radio and TV.

Sue is committed to continually striving to be the best she can be, and to inspire others to do the same. It was this desire to share her knowledge and enthusiasm, and a perceived lack of facilities for further educating qualified beauty therapists, that Sue decided to open a training academy at Image. Offering fully trained therapists the opportunity to expand their knowledge and learn new techniques and treatments and keep up to date of new developments within the industry, the Academy has been a huge success, and is looking forward to another successful year.
