Did you catch YUMI on MTV’s Teen Mom UK? Well if you didn’t, here’s everything you need to know about the episode and our very own YUMI technician- Sassi Simmonds.
Sassi Simmonds rose to fame on the second series of Teen Mom UK alongside partner and childhood sweetheart Darren Quirk and daughter Zena’ya Saint, replacing series one-star Naomi Konickova.
Manchester Born and Bred, the Northern lass is keen to break the stigma around Teen Moms, proving that having a child cannot stop you from following your dreams. Although once a self-confessed wild child, Sassi is far from shy when it comes to hard work. From call centers, to construction sites she is far from a stranger to getting her hands dirty; however, her latest work venture sees her going back to her roots of being a beauty therapist, training in none other than our very own YUMI lashes.
As if this wasn’t exciting enough for everyone here at YUMI, we also had a special appearance on the MTV show. Series 5 episode 4 shows Sassi’s experience when training with YUMI lashes with Edinburgh trainer Sophia Majid. Sassi alongside fellow Teen Mom star and model for the day- Carly, both made the trip from Manchester to Edinburgh for the training day at Sophia’s salon ‘Beauty by Sophia’.
In the episode Sassi says Yumi is ‘something to get me started, because it’s a treatment that people actually want’- and we can definitely not disagree with that!
The penultimate scenes of the episodes show Sassi beaming with pride as she displays her YUMI certificate which deems her fully qualified as a YUMI lash technician.
Since then, Sassi has regularly updated her progress on her Instagram, which she boasts over an impressive 150k followers, and the results are impressive- even if we do say so ourselves. Follow @sassi_simmonds to see more, we promise you won’t be disappointed.
