About Us

About Leoko Cre8tive

The beauty scene is bigger than ever. The sheer density of nail salons, blow out bars, hair salons and spa’s is certainly overwhelming. Although having an array of venues, services and offers to choose from can be tempting, the question here is does this promote consistent quality, tailored customer focus and confidence in services and their providers?

The stress and responsibility of life doesn’t always allow for self-care, maintenance of your wellbeing and general indulgent pampering but its more important than ever.

At Leoko Cre8tive we offer an extensive range of beauty, makeup, hair, wellbeing and creative services in our private studio based in Reddish/Heaton Moor, Stockport. This means we ca see one client at a time and ensure that the attention is on you.

We pay close attention to our clients’ needs and preferences to provide a bespoke tailored service for each individual at your convenience. Take a look at our service list and brands we work with here.

Our mantra is “Enhance to empower” taking on board the ongoing issues in society with lack of self-confidence, body shaming, prejudice, and mental health awareness. We hold an ALL welcome policy. This means EVERYONE is welcome to access our services, we promote equality and diverse throughout our organisation and amongst our client base. Our creative professionals will help you enhance your natural beauty to empower you to be who you want to be at your finest. We are ready to powder, paint and spray so you can slay!

We also have an online store where we sell our Cre8tive Customz press on nails sets that we design and paint freehand. Go check them out here

Infection Protection and control

Over the course of the pandemic it has become apparent to me that many technicians do not feel confident in Infection Prevention & Control. With this in mind, I have put together a free download, which is available to download from my file. Just click on the IPC document in the next column. I will be available via social media to help refresh existing knowledge and offer some hints and tips of managing your infection prevention and control measures. 

I hope it helps some of you regain your confidence in preparation for returning to work (whenever that ends up being)
