If you wanted to invent a 'dream team' of inside knowledge and insight into the hair and beauty industry you would probably create Nicky & Lesley Clarke! Indeed, they make an unbeatable and glamorous team, bringing the Nicky Clarke name to households the world over.
But it hasn't always been all high fashion & high-flying - both Lesley & Nicky have worked extremely hard to build up their business to the successful and award-winning concern it is today. From the start, it was a combination of creativity & business flair, with Nicky providing the artistic inspiration & Lesley driving the business forward with her sharp commercial acumen & insight into what women (& men!) really look for.
Their partnership represents an alliance of hair, beauty, business & all things holistic. After all, it was Lesley's great passion for natural therapies (long before they were fashionable or well-known) & her belief that beauty comes from within, that led to the use of aromatherapy principles. These principles first appeared in the highly successful signature Nicky Clarke Hairomatherapy haircare range, the couple's first product line launched in 1993. Capitalising on Nicky's astonishing level of public awareness, Nicky and Lesley Clarke formed The Nicky Clarke Company. Hairomatherapy, a groundbreaking hair care line launched in 1993, was the first aromatherapy-based hair care brand in the UK.
