Rebecca Hill Est since 2004
Rebecca was free to focus solely on her hairdressing again.
She is now studying her NVQ3 Teaching and Delivery which will upgrade her previous qualifications. Therefore she now personally delivers all of the practical and theory based education and is developing her Academy Programme.
She'd done it!!! She'd saved up enough money to be able to convert her larger premises into her dream salon. The conversion took almost a year but during this time Rebecca and her team worked hard and created an environment that oozes class, sophistication and luxury.
As part of this re-brand, Rebecca felt passionately that she wanted to upgrade her product lines so introduced Redken, BlondMe and Fibreplex by Schwarzkopf and Olaplex (of course!!)
By popular demand she continued to use Clynol, Igora Royal, Essensity and Fudge Paintbox so with such as vast portfolio of products, knowledge and possibility, there is something for everyone at Rebecca Hill.
Rebecca happily waved goodbye to her original shop.
Rebecca slowly began the transition of moving her small salon across into the larger premises by amalgamating the hair and clothing lines.
Rebecca stumbled across a new opportunity in fashion and took to her drawing board once again.
She discovered a company who buy up unsold commercial clothing from all of the major high street lines and then encourage boutiques to resell the unlabeled clothing at discounted prices.
An affordable clothing line was finally on sale in Princes Risborough.
Rebecca felt a clothes shop would be better suited to the town.
She closed the gallery and launched 'The Fashion House'.
A concession concept, inviting up and coming London designers to showcase their collections.
Rebecca converted the second floor of her premises and opened The Beauty Retreat.
No sooner had she done this but the premises next door to her salon became available.
Seeing the long term opportunity she made the brave decision to sign her second commercial lease.
Rebecca launched 'The Modern Art Gallery'.
Not wanting to borrow money to convert the additional space into the salon that she dreamed of, she turned one of her hobbies into a business to help fund her long term dream of opening a much larger salon.
One evening a week Rebecca ran a children’s art class which was a huge success.
Rebecca had grown the team and employed fourteen members of staff.
Rebecca had outgrown the freelance market so she opened her own salon in Princes Risborough.
Launching the salon with a team of six staff, she elected to offer Clynol, Fudge, Wella and Semi-Di-Lino.
She began teaching the NVQ Hairdressing programme within her salon and assessed her own apprentices.
Rebecca established herself as a self-employed Freelance Hair Stylist and Colour Technician.
Rebecca grew her business quickly due to superior talent.
She worked six days a week, had a waiting list of clients and employed a full time receptionist.
Rebecca found a local salon run by Sasson trained stylists and quickly became a busy stylist with managerial responsibilities.
Rebecca trained in Joico and Mop.
Rebecca completed her NVQ3 in Customer Service.
Rebecca relocated to a commercial salon.
She completed her NVQ3 in Hairdressing, Teaching and Assessing.
Rebecca moved to a start up salon so she could work alongside the owner and learn hands on how to set up and launch a salon.
She completed her NVQ2 in Hairdressing.
Rebecca trained in Clynol.
Rebecca moved to one of the most upmarket salons in the county and trained alongside a team of 14 stylists whilst completing her NVQ1 in Hairdressing.
