Our Therapists

Michelle O’Neill

Owner / Senior Therapist

Michelle has been a fully qualified beauty therapist for 13 years and has been working with the Guinot range for over 12 years. She started her career with Guinot at Regis Hair and Beauty in Alders, which after closing down, she left to continue working with Guinot at Eternal Beauty at The Holiday Inn in Ipswich.

After working there for over 3 years, she decided that she wanted to achieve an ambition of becoming an In-flight Beauty Therapist for Virgin Atlantic. Whilst working for Virgin, she travelled around the world offering treatments to passengers (and many celebrities) in the Upper Class Suite, whilst flying at 37,000 ft!!

After 2 years at Virgin, Michelle realised that her passion for beauty remained with treating clients on a regular basis and seeing results in treatments she was performing. She then returned to Eternal Beauty to help manage a new salon within Felixstowe. It was here that she re-established her passion for treatments and the Guinot brand.

Using all of her experience, Michelle opened Purity, The Beauty Retreat in July 2011. Michelle’s aim was to create a beauty salon where clients can feel 100% relaxed with their therapist, receive the highest standard in treatment’s and customer service, all at an affordable price. Having worked with Guinot previously, Michelle felt that she couldn’t open a salon without it and is delighted that Purity is the only salon in Ipswich to be offering the world famous treatments and products.
