Taylor Murphy (USA) - Master Esthetician
Taylor Murphy grew up in Goldsboro, North Carolina. She graduated from Pitt Community College in Greenville with an Associates degree in Applied Science. Taylor had originally thought of becoming an ultrasound technician. However, while working part time for Lancôme, she discovered that she really enjoyed helping customers with their makeup and thus her passion for the beauty industry was ignited.
Taylor then attended the Esthetic Arts program at Edgecombe Community College in Tarboro, NC. She graduated in 2018 with her Basic Esthetics diploma. During college, Taylor also worked as a salon coordinator at WISO Salon to gain experience within the industry. One of the areas that she felt passionate about was working with young people to help improve their acne and overall health. Taylor empathizes with young people going through difficulties with their skin, as she herself experienced acute acne as a teenager.
In the summer of 2019, Taylor moved to Northern Virginia to be closer to family. She attended the Dermal Science International Aesthetics Academy in Reston, VA, where she graduated in March 2020 with a Master of Esthetics. Taylor joined Nicola of London in April 2020. Due to the pandemic, she was able to get lots of extra practice and coaching from Nicky! She is excited to meet you and take care of your skin care needs.
