Laura’s Pamper Van – top tips from the mobile beautician
Born of a mixture of necessity and ingenuity, Laura’s Pamper Van is waiting to welcome you aboard.
How did you start?
Having closed my salon in Bridge of Weir after eight years of trading due to the unsustainability that the pandemic brought on, I needed to reinvent my career within the beauty industry. After a few cream soda daiquiris on a sunny Sunday afternoon, the idea of Laura’s Pamper Van was born. Now, I can bring a safe and sanitised environment directly to the houses and driveways of Renfrewshire.
What’s the best thing about working in the industry?
For me, it’s always been about more than just providing nail and lash treatments. Appointments are a time to chat, laugh, sing and sometimes cry. A time when women can disconnect, leaving the van with great nails, lashes and a big smile.
Favourite beauty essential?
Nouveau’s lash and brow conditioning serum. This helps nourish lashes and brows, giving them a fuller, healthier appearance.

- Glasses to contact lenses, making the switch is easy at Specsavers
- The VI Peel from Signature Permanent Cosmetics
My top beauty tip?
Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise! A simple two minute process that helps maintain and improve your skin day after day, year after year.
My favourite beauty treatment?
LVL (length volume length) Lash lift. It’s the perfect lash enhancement for any size or shape and it requires no maintenance, with results lasting 6-8 weeks. Simply put, it’s your natural lashes, but better.
What’s the most popular treatment/service in The Pamper Van?
Definitely our foot therapy pedicure. Firstly the foot is cleansed and hard skin removed, then slipped into collagen-infused booties that deeply moisturises the skin. While they are working their magic, gel polish is applied to the toes before the treatment is finished with a relaxing foot massage.
Lastly, what’s your top tip for relaxing at home?
The best way for me to really unwind at home is a nice hot bath with bubbles, candles and a good book or music. A fluffy towel and jammies heating up on the radiator are a must!
