Erin Chen

I opened the doors to Puressence in 2004. Previously, I had worked and managed other salons but when an opportunity arose to start my own, I leapt at the chance. I come from a family of small business owners so I didn’t even think twice about giving it a go. After 12 years at the Wheeler Heights Shops we relocated to a purpose-built salon at the top of my driveway.

The advantage of not being located in a shopping complex is that we offer a private, professional and relaxing environment where you can escape the hustle and bustle of life. And I know it sounds corny, but my clients make coming to work a breeze, I have the best clients/friends that have been with me a long time; I’m now starting to treat their kids too.

I particularly love when a client walks in the front door and exhales deeply and says ‘I love it here, this is my happy place, I love the smell and energy in here’. It’s also important to me that we don’t push our clients into anything, we spend time discussing and understand their concerns so that we can direct them but we’re not pushy.

The reason I got into beauty therapy in the first place is because when I was younger I had a few treatments done and I thought, wow… I want to make people feel like this all the time.

When people come in for a treatment they forget all about the outside world and it’s just about them for the next hour or so… it is an honor to be a part of that.

I love connecting with people and hearing their stories.

I love seeing results whether it’s from using great skincare, beautifully painted nails, lash lifts or any of the other amazing treatments we have to offer. Knowing that I’ve helped someone feel good about themselves makes me coming to work an absolute joy.
