Tell us about yourself
I started my career in hairdressing when I left school, I worked my way up from an assistant to a salon manager over a 6 year period. I decided to take a break from hairdressing to travel the world and immerse myself in different cultures. I was fortunate enough to get sponsored to stay in Sydney and lived there for nearly 4 years, during this time I took a different career path and started to work as a Resource and MI Analyst. I returned to the UK to have my daughter nearly 3 years ago, and recently relocated to Haywards Heath last year.

What attracted you to Rush?
Being part of a company that prides themselves on exceptional customer service, but also the support element was a major thing for me; I’ve always dreamed of opening my own salon and was going to earlier in my career but had to pull out as I didn’t feel I had enough support to help me through the daunting prospect of opening my own salon.
From the first moment I met Andy I knew I was in safe hands and any fears I had disappeared, since coming onboard I have been overwhelmed by the constant support and encouragement from everyone I come into contact. Everyone within the Rush team is at the top of their game and it’s refreshing to work in an organisation where everyone shares the same passion and is keen to support the growth of their team members.
Why did you choose Haywards Heath for your new salon?
Having recently relocated to Haywards Heath I noticed that there was a fantastic opportunity for a salon here. Haywards Heath is a commuter town a short drive away from both the beautiful Sussex Downs and quirky seaside town of Brighton. Haywards Heath already has lots of lovely restaurants, bars and high street brands. I believe that as Rush is already a big high street brand it will complement the existing high street and draw in many more customer focused shops and stores to the area.
What are you looking forward to most about having your own Rush salon?
I’m really looking forward to running my own business and so proud to be doing it under the prestigious Rush name! I can’t wait for the doors to open so people in Haywards Heath and surrounding areas can start experiencing fantastic hair and an exceptional level of service on their doorstep. Having worked my way up from the bottom to the top I also understand how important it is to grow and develop my team, I’m really looking forward to this too and watching my team blossom.
