Donna Ryan, The Facial Goddess, has been practising as a beauty and skincare specialist since 2012.
In autumn 2019 she relocated her Maida Vale practice to London’s Fitzrovia. Her beauty room is a sanctuary of peace and tranquillity, underneath the Redhed salon on 7 Charlotte Place, W1T 1SQ.
Born in west London, and raised in Hertfordshire, Donna studied textile design at the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design and initially worked in fashion. From a teenager into early adulthood she’d experienced and sought solutions to severe acne. A visit to a homoeopath proved to be a turning point, as not only was this treatment effective for her but it was the springboard for her holistic learning journey.
On a personal level, Donna has transitioned through many remarkable physical, health, environmental and emotional circumstances. Her journey of growth, self-nurturing, strengthening and development has led her to the point where she is today; helping, guiding and intuitively supporting others via her bespoke beauty treatments with a holistic twist.
Donna is continually learning and updating her treatments, blending elements of ancient rituals with industry-leading beauty techniques. She draws from a broad repertoire of skills and experience including Gua Sha, facial cupping, anti-aging face massage, Bach flower remedies, skin nutrition, reiki, seven rays of energy and sound healing facials.
Speaking of her facials, Donna says: “I have always enjoyed regular facials and am passionate about skincare but couldn’t find anyone offering the real natural treatments that I needed. Having seen a gap in the market, I created my own style of facial which blends many different techniques, including Gua Sha, crystal rollers and sound, to deliver holistic as well as cosmetic benefits; beautifying on the outside, enhancing wellbeing on the inside.”
