Hello I'm Harriet, I’m 23. Originally from Auckland and made the move to Christchurch last year. I’ve been working in beauty since 2018. I love all aspects of beauty but definitely have a passion for brows.

Being a beauty therapist for me is about assisting my clients to feel both outer and inner beauty.

I hope to see you all very soon!



 Laura Grainger


Hi I’m Laura, I have been in the beauty industry since 2012. I started with  providing the service of spray tanning and quickly became interested in all aspects of Beauty Therapy. In 2014 I studied at the National School of Aesthetics and have carried on with further postgraduate training during the past 8 years as a Beauty Therapist. I am passionate about all elements of beauty therapy and I thrive on making a difference. I love meeting clients expectations and helping them achieve the results they seek or simply to provide a relaxing boost and see my clients leave with a smile on their face, knowing I made a difference to their day. This is what drives my passion. I am very excited to be working out of Beauty Assets new premises. 



Nicole Harding BN NZRN
Clinic Owner/Nurse Therapist - Clinique Élan 

Hi I’m Nicole, one of the Registered Nurse Therapists, and Clinic Owner of Clinique Elan in Hamilton.

I started my nursing career in Christchurch working in a private hospital specialising in post-operative surgical care. From there I went to work for a Dermatologist and Cosmetic Surgeon Dr Ken Macdonald, where I specialised in cosmetic surgery, dermatology and appearance medicine.

During those years I was fortunate enough to travel throughout New Zealand and Australia for training, both in appearance medicine and dermatology, and have consequently developed a vast knowledge and understanding of both dermal fillers and botulinum treatments as well as skin rejuvenation, with the understanding of the ageing face. 

My knowledge extends to the use of all of all botulinum toxins - Dysport, Xeomin and Botox. I have also had previous experience with multiple products from the Teosyal, Restylane, Juvederm and Belotero ranges. 

I have developed an absolute passion for appearance medicine and feel blessed to have been a part of the journey that has brought me to running the incredible clinic that Clinique Elan is. Deborah Wake (the previous owner) has been an inspiration and has guided me on this new journey to running a clinic that is very renowned for its quality of care. 

My life doesn't just stop at the clinic. Myself and my husband, Lance, run a dairy goat farm on Lake Karapiro. Where we have over 1000 goats to keep us entertained. As well as our gorgeous little dogs, Luna and Ace. We both look forward to our new journey as business owners and are excited to see Clinique Elan grow and evolve over the coming years.

Clinique Elan has always been well known for its experience, outstanding service and impeccable results, which is exactly how I intend on running CE moving forward. We are so fortunate to have such a lovely team that all endeavour to ensure that you are all well looked after throughout your whole experience. 
CE may have a brand new look, but we are still the same team with the same amazing service.

Tessa has kindly brought me on board to offer another service in her growing salon, Beauty Assets. I am excited to see and meet some new faces. I will be available for treatment as well as client consultations. Our booking system is available below. Consultations will be complimentary prior to booking treatment. 
I offer Botulinum Toxin, Dermal Fillers, Profhilo and Mint Mono Threads. Please see the Clinique Élan website for detailed information about each treatment.
