About Mali Raj

Mali Raj meaning 'Little Paradise' was founded by myself - Ashleigh Hughes in January 2015.

Growing up I was always dedicated to my beauty and make-up, therefore there was no question that that is what I was going to do when leaving school in 2009. I studied for 3 years gaining my NVQ level 2 & 3 in Beauty Therapy and a further year gaining my Diploma in Make-Up Artistry.

I then went on to work for a couple of different salons- including one of my college lecturers- for 3 years, before opening my own business.

Mali Raj was highly influenced by my travelling to Thailand in 2014, henceforth the middle- eastern style theme.

When working for other salons, I worked with various skincare & nail care brands including Dermalogica & Nailtiques, however when I came in connection with Jessica & Comfort Zone there was, without a doubt, no other brand I wanted to use in my own salon.
