Head to Bare Essentials for the best in beauty and aesthetics

Come and be pampered at our therapy rooms in Oxfordshire

Bare Essentials was created by me, Becky Lay, and I’ve now been joined by lovely beauty therapist, Vikki who specialise in different types of beauty treatments. Martina joins us to carry out botox and we have Jenni as our micro-blading specialist.

I’ve always been fascinated by beauty treatments and professional skincare, and I was lucky enough to have been trained by the beauty experts at Champney’s spa. I went on to work with several professional salons, where I gained a lot of experience in all aspects of professional beauty therapy, and developed a passion for skin rejuvenation techniques and aesthetics & I have recently passed my level 4 in anatomy & physiology.

My Beauty Salon in West Hagbourne

I decided to start my own beauty and skin clinic in West Hagbourne in 2011, and it’s now a thriving little business. I’m available in the salon in West Hagbourne a few days and evenings a week and Wantage 2-3 days. I love working in the salon; I enjoy meeting people and helping them find the perfect treatment for their needs. You can ask me absolutely anything, I’m happy to chat through your skincare and beauty treatments before you book and as we go, so that you’re totally at ease during a treatment and happy with the service you receive from us. We’re constantly expanding and hope to have opened another luxurious treatment room by the end of 2019, bringing a new clinic to Wantage with some exciting new treatments.


Jenni began her beauty training working with gel nails for Bio Sculpture and then trained in spray tanning with Fake Bake. She became interested in micro blading after having the treatment herself, “eyebrows are such an important part of the face.” Jenni trained in the techniques with the Beauty Delux training academy and says that she loves the difference she can make to someone’s look by creating beautiful eyebrows.
