Claire Aggarwal and Charlie McCorry came together four years ago to provide the best at home beauty service, launching Perfect 10 mobile beauty. The beauty service allows customers to enjoy a wide range of treatments in the comfort of their own home. We caught up with the beauty powerhouses to discuss style, beauty tips and what’s next for Perfect 10.
Donna Ida: What are your key pieces for SS15?
Claire & Charlie: We both love a contrast collar; between us we have bought too many shirts and t-shirts like this already! We both love nude tones and have bought the Elizabeth and James bucket bag, it goes with absolutely everything!
Donna Ida: What is your go-to style for jeans?
Claire & Charlie: We both wear skinny jeans, we haven’t yet quite managed the new flare trend, but after trying on the IDA Adelaide Flare, we are quickly being converted especially with its leg lengthening style!
Donna Ida: Are you Team High (high waist denim) or Team Low (low waist denim)?
Claire: Team Low.
Charlie: Team High.
Donna Ida: Which was your favourite piece from the Style Insider shoot and why?
Claire: The 360 Sweater in neon orange. I am always cold, even in the summer, so I love how warm and soft the cashmere is. It is so easy to throw on and teamed with different shoes and jeans works for a casual Sunday lunch or a night out with the girls.
Charlie: My favourite was the Joie Pearline Blouse it is perfect to go from desk to dinner. It is so comfortable and stylish and looks great with white jeans in the summer and darker jeans in the winter.
Donna Ida: What is your favourite part of running your own beauty business?
Claire & Charlie: Meeting lots of new fun people every single day. Of course we both love all of the beauty products as well!
Donna Ida: You seem to cater to every eventuality for service is this correct? How do you manage any obstacles?
Claire & Charlie: By training our staff for every eventuality. We have a 24 hour reception team, so we can ensure our service is the best it can be, and we endeavour to always exceed expectations.
Donna Ida: What are your top beauty tips for summer?
Claire & Charlie: Buy a body brush! It is the cheapest most effective way to get rid of cellulite and improve skin tone.
Donna Ida: What is your indulgence when it comes to treatments?
Claire & Charlie: Because of the industry we work in, and as we are both out all the time meeting new people we always have our nails perfectly polished. We both love having a massage and a blow dry. We try and make sure we have treatments at different salons and businesses so we can always make sure we are offering the best possible service and treatments for our clients.
Donna Ida: Which beauty products can you not live without?
Claire & Charlie: Our top 3 must haves are always the same.
- Natura Bisse’s The Cure Sheer Cream is the best moisturiser; it even has some colour, and hides a multitude of sins. We can’t live without it.
- Batiste Dry Shampoo is absolutely perfect post gym when you don’t have all the time in the world.
- A good exfoliator! Make sure you get yourself a good exfoliator for your face and body (yes they must be different) it is the best way to get your skin looking amazing! Perfect 10 opens their salon doors this June at Michael Van Clarke in Marylebone.
Donna Ida: Tell us about launching your first salon with Michael Van Clarke, and how the salon experience will be an extension of your already successful mobile business?
Claire & Charlie: Perfect 10’s ethos has always been to bring beauty to you, whether it is in your home, office, holiday home, yacht or jet. Now we are bringing our wonderful services and convenience to the best hairdresser in London, Michael Van Clarke. MVC is famed for their dry cut (it is fantastic) and the best cut we have ever had. It was a no brainer to start offering beauty services so our clients can have their hair cut whilst having all of their beauty treatments done.
Donna Ida: And finally can you reveal any hidden London gems to us?
Claire & Charlie: Of course we can! The best breakfast is Flotsam and Jetsam (we love it here). The smashed avocado and eggs are super healthy but still feels like a real treat! The coffee is the best we have had in a while!
For London markets you must visit Maltby Street Market. This is a small market, near Bermondsey Street. Make sure you go when it is sunny, and enjoy a Scotch egg and gin and tonic.
Granger and Co. in Notting Hill is a great dining experience; it has a brilliant atmosphere, the food is really good and is perfect for a date or dinner with the girls.
Our favourite place to exercise is Reach Gym London. They only do classes, and they are not for the faint-hearted. It is the ultimate work out, and after just one session you feel the difference.
