Rebecca Hill Est since 2004
Rebecca took her first job in a village salon as a Saturday assistant.
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.
She worked closely with Wella London and competed nationally against other
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 relocated to a commercial salon.
She completed her NVQ3 in Hairdressing, Teaching and Assessing.
Rebecca found a local salon run by Sassoon 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 established herself as a self-employed Freelance Hair Stylist and
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 had outgrown the freelance market so she opened her own salon in
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 converted the second floor of her premises and opened The Beauty
No sooner had she done this but the premises next door to her salon became
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
Rebecca had grown the team and employed fourteen members of staff.
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
Rebecca stumbled across a new opportunity in fashion and took to her
drawing board once again.
She discovered a company who buy 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.
With all of her years of customer contact, Rebecca enrolled on a counselling course for pleasure. She studied alongside work in the evenings.
Rebecca slowly began the transition of moving her small salon across into
the larger premises by amalgamating the hair and clothing lines.
Rebecca happily waved goodbye to her original shop.
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 invited her partner Lewis to train at the salon in his spare time.
Rebecca qualified in NVQ3 Teaching and Delivery which upgraded her
previous qualifications. She now personally delivers all of the
practical and theory based education in the salon.
Lewis qualified as a hairdressing stylist and began working at the salon full time.
Rebecca had maintained her Counselling training since 2012.
She qualified as an Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor.
She set up her private practice in the newly refurbished barn at the back of her salon.
White Barn Therapy was established.
In the Spring of 2018 Rebecca and Lewis decided to change the layout of the salon so that they could make space for a luxurious little shopping area.
'Rebecca's Little Luxuries' boasts many gift and treat ideas often one-off or handmade.
