Here are some of those comments:

Codie Greenalsh - When it comes to anything beauty I would say Laken Chin-Poy who is the owner of https://www.facebook.com/lakenbeauty
Is a cut above the rest. Having only started full time at her home salon business since February 2015, her reputation as one of the best beauticians in the Rockhampton area is prominent. Her dedication to her clients is impeccable and the late nights to making sure everyone can get there appointments in is always top priority. Being a home based salon does not take anything away from her skills in being in my opinion the best Brow Artist in the region. A mummy of 2 small children and still being able to run and grow her business speaks for her character and love for what she does. Very approachable and her prices are affordable. Honest and dedicated to making people not only feel beautiful on the inside but the outside as well. 100% quality and reliability. Highly recommended


Emma Henley - Laken Chin-Poy from Laken Beauty. She puts her passion into her clients and it truly shows in the end result. She is a lovely person and believe she has major potential to take her business above and beyond. She is well ahead of the game for rockhampton and brings a refreshing feel and look to beauty. She deserves this more than anyone xx When it comes to anything beauty I would say Laken Chin-Poy who is the owner of https://www.facebook.com/lakenbeauty

Laken is very passionate about her work. Will always try to fit you in for an appointment regardless of how much notice you give her.

She is extremely knowledgeable and talented in the Beauty industry and it shows in all the work she does. I love watching the transformations she shows on her Facebook page each week.

She always makes you feel comfortable and is great to have a chat to as well.
