Mobile Spa of the Month for March-April 2017 — Trudy Albert of Eternal Beauty Mobile Esthetics by Maria Koropecky, esthetician.
Serving the surrounding urban and rural communities of Ottawa-Gatineau, also known as Canada’s Capital Region, Trudy Albert’s Eternal Beauty Mobile Esthetics or Esthétique Mobile Beauté Éternelle is one of the only mobile spa
businesses in the area that has a fully bilingual (French and English) staff.
“We are based out of Gatineau, Quebec, which is directly across the bridge from Ottawa, Ontario, and this area is very bilingual,” said Trudy Albert.
Ottawa is also known as the coldest capital city in the world, (during winter months), and the often unpredictable weather can present some challenges for a mobile spa company, but Trudy and her team of seven estheticians and three registered massage therapists, persevere.
“Operating a mobile spa during winter months is definitely a challenge, particularly this past winter,” said Trudy. “Weather does get quite extreme, and we do mention when booking between November 15th and April 1st that winter travel is limited, in the case of heavy snow fall or freezing rain.”
“Having said that,” Trudy continues, “We have only ever had to cancel three times in the past eight years of our travels. This is a definite perk for our clients! They get to stay home – warm, cozy, and relaxed – and let us worry about the weather.”
Eternal Beauty Mobile Esthetics was launched in 2009 in response to a growing demand for in-home, beauty services.
“Having a complete understanding that looking good and feeling good is crucial to our well-being, I wanted to ensure that those with limited mobility were not forgotten,” she said.
“I started the business focusing on serving those who aren’t as mobile as they’d like to be,” said Trudy. “[My clients] really appreciated that I could bring pampering and skin care directly to them, and I get great satisfaction in return.”
Clients have their choice of receiving facials, pedicures, manicures, facial waxing, registered massage therapy, bridal makeup, and hair styling.
“We provide services to help make women’s lives a little easier by providing them with the same high quality beauty treatments and products they would find in any luxury day spa, only in the comfort of their home,” she said. “Our clients love the convenience of having their beauty needs met in their own home, without the hassles of going to and from their appointments.”
Speaking of quality beauty products, Eternal Beauty Mobile Esthetics has its own line of skin care products. “I have been an esthetician for almost 30 years now, and worked with many lines over that time,” said Trudy.
“I was struggling with finding skin care lines that met my standards, philosophy, and [were available] at a reasonable price. I believe high-end skincare should deliver real results, be safe to use, not tested on animals, and be accessible/affordable to everyone. I now work with a couple of laboratories to develop/manufacture our own line of botanical skin care. This was a long time in the making, and I am ecstatic with the results – and clients are loving it too!” she said.
As for plans for the future, Trudy would like to run her mobile spa on a larger scale. “I have built a solid team of trusted professionals with similar passions, and hope to be providing mobile services for many more years,” said Trudy. “I have a real passion for what I do and believe in bringing a feeling of well-being to others.”
