The Team

Adele Stimpson (nee Orton)

After 2 years studying Architectural Drafting, Adele decided it wasn’t for her. So in 1995 she started training at the College of Camille for her Diploma of Beauty Therapy. It was here that she was awarded Student of the Year, and also gained her CIDESCO.

Starting her Beauty Therapy career at L’Image in Parnell (while still studying), Adele learnt the ‘Beauty Life’ skills that she lives by today. Three years later she decided to see what the world had to offer and landed in England, gaining experience in Central London and then in Guernsey. After two years abroad and with a wealth of experience, Adele returned home and reclaimed her place at L’Image.  A year later, looking for more of a challenge and a change of scenery, she took on the role of manager at Focus on You in Balmoral.

On 1st December 2002, Adele became a business owner, taking ownership of Molliere’s Skin & Body. She continues to enjoy the twin challenges of Director and Senior Therapist, but most of all loves the interaction and friendships she builds with her customers.

Chloe McKenzie

Chloe has always been passionate about beauty therapy. She decided to start her studies at the Bay of Plenty Polytechnic in 2012. She graduated in 2013 and was fortunate to land a job at a beauty salon in Tauranga where she honed her skills as a therapist.

Chloe had lived her whole life in Whakatane and decided it was time for a change, so decided city life was the way to go and headed to Auckland.

She started working at Molliere's Skin & Body at the end of 2013 where she enjoys all aspects of the beauty industry. She makes her clients feel warm and welcome and she makes sure that she gives them her undivided attention.

Chloe is a great addition to Molliere's and has proven herself to be an outstanding therapist as she goes from strength to strength.

Xiaomei (Charmaine) Zhang

Xiaomei grew up in a large city in North China. She moved to New Zealand in 2002 and trained in the art of beauty therapy in 2005, now celebrating her 10th year in the industry.

Xiaomei very much enjoys her life in New Zealand and is having fun learning some of the colloquial terms such as "Dollar each way".

She loves to go to the gym and ran her first 10km race in 2014! The goal for 2015...running a half marathon!

Xiaomei is the third cog in the strong Molliere's team, her massages have to be experienced to be believed and she is absolutely passionate about working with you to resolve those frustrating skin concerns.
