Selina Peterson – Beauty Therapist
“The world is your oyster, take risks, because the only person who is stopping you is you”
Beauty Therapist Selina Peterson believes strongly in encouraging people to make a move towards their dreams and their future careers.
Selina is a Senior Beauty Therapist at Lab Brows + Body in Kirikiriroa - Hamilton. For the last 17 years she has been growing her experience and passion for her career in beauty therapy.
She also has a love for people, “17 plus years later I’m still enjoying what I do”.
Selina has “always tried to incorporate the four pillars” (of Māori health) into her services when she is working with clients. These include, “Taha tinana (physical health) and Taha wairua (spiritual health), part of making people feel good”.
Selina has a desire to give back to others and said, “I would love to take my Tohu (qualifications) home back to Waikawa, back to Picton, to be able to share my knowledge with my people and pass on to others”.
In the future, Selina aspires to become full time with her own business and to teach others what she has learned throughout the years. Her mahi shows that it’s not all about the nails and hair, but that it is also about the people.
