About Olivia

Olivia Herlihy

Olivia is a hair and skincare enthusiast with more than 10 years experience working in healthcare and over 5 years as a Registered Nurse. She has worked in dermatology, and plastic and reconstructive surgery, and completed courses in cosmetic dermatology, facial massage, and aromatherapy for the skin.

While she was at University, Olivia spent time working in a hair salon in Knightsbridge, London. It was here that she learned about hair and scalp treatments, and took a particular interest in the Indian and Ayurvedic approach to hair care.

Olivia believes in only using natural oils and herbs in her hair treatments, and never heat, sulphates or harsh chemicals. In 2019 she created an entire hair care routine using this formula, and it completely transformed the health of her hair!

Since then, Olivia has written a book on Ayurvedic hair care to help her readers incorporate Eastern teachings into their own beauty routines. She continues to study the hair care benefits of different oils, herbs and natural ingredients, and regularly posts articles about them on her blog.

History of UK Beauty Room

Olivia was inspired to set up her beauty blog after she’d been following Ruth Crilly and Caroline Hirons for many years, both on YouTube, and through their blogs. In 2019 Olivia decided to start a beauty blog of her own which would have a focus on natural hair and skincare products, and curly hair care!

Olivia continues to follow Ruth and Caroline, and regularly links out to them from her blog posts. She also follows and recommends Sali Hughes who is the beauty journalist for The Guardian, Pixiwoo, Really Ree and British Beauty Blogger.
