Hi my name’s Remy

 I joined the grove experience in 2013 from leaving school to start my apprenticeship. In 2015 I completed my NVQ level 2.

After graduation I worked towards a promotion which I reached in 2016.
February 2017 I completed a business building course designed for new stylists to help me achieve my goals within the hairdressing industry.

In October 2017 I became a mum to my daughter Darcey rose. After a year out I have returned to the salon 4 days a week. I love barbering and I am keen to improve and develop my skills. I have already booked a course to learn to wet shave.

Amazing experience with Remy today at The Grove Experience. Lovely welcoming salon, staff that are extremely knowledgable, talented and friendly, excellent loyalty benefits and most inportantly, I love my new haircut! Reclining massage chairs whilst having your hair washed and refreshments offered to you. Couldn't ask for more.

Hi, my name is Taylor.

I left school in June 2014 and decided to pursue a career in Hairdressing, after lots of research I decided I wanted to do an apprenticeship as this seemed to be the best way to learn.

In August 2014 I Joined my local salon, The Great Hairdressing group on Eastbourne Harbour where I started my NVQ level 2.

In Feb 2016 I joined The Grove Experience as a Future Professional to complete my NVQ level 2 and then go on to do my NVQ level 3 and NVQ Barbering in the salons Academy, Experience Education Academy”.

I am now a fully qualified Level three hairdresser working on the salon floor doing all aspects of hairdressing. I also volunteer at St Wilfred’s Hospice in the hair salon that the Grove Experience sponsor, I love cutting their hair and making them feel beautiful.

I have taken part in a number of courses in the Academy to help improve my skills and learn some new techniques. In the future, I would like to become an educator helping other students with their training. Also, I would love to manage a salon and hopefully this will lead to me owning my own salon.

Last minute appointment. I really needed a haircut so I rang at 4 pm and managed to get an appointment for 5 pm the same day. I had my haircut by Taylor. The salon is very welcoming on arrival, Taylor talked to me about what I wanted doing with my hair. The chairs where you get your hair washed are fabulous, very comfortable with a relaxing massage. I had a lovely cut and blow dry with a lemon and ginger tea which came with biscuits and a mini pack of love hearts. All for £31.00. Taylor is a good hairdresser and made me feel at ease. I was given a loyalty pack which will save me money in the future on more appointments and a lovely pink pen. Definitely going back again.

Hi, I’m Emma!
After working in retail for a few years I soon realised that this wasn’t the career for me. I have since found a new love for hairdressing and cannot wait to begin my journey and dream career with such a fantastic team at the Grove Experience.
I joined the Grove Experience in August 2016, In Dec 2017 I completed my NVQ level 2.
In 2016 I won the Future Professional of the year.
In 2017 I won the Rising star award at the Grove Experience.

 I have also now completed my NVQ level 3 advanced hairdressing qualification.
I absolutely love all aspects of Hairdressing I love to transform peoples hair making them feel pampered and looked after. I am a fun bubbly character, I really enjoy having a natter with my guests as well as making their experience relaxing and enjoyable.
In the future, I hope to add more strings to my bow and learn to do extensions and bridal hair.
In my spare time, I  like to socialize with my friends and family. They have been a massive support for my career change and I hope to continue to make them proud.
I’m so excited to meet different guests and be able to treat them to a wonderful experience at the Grove! I will soon need models to help me on my way, so I hope to see you in the salon soon.
Emma.

Hi, I’m Lindsay,
I’m very new to hairdressing, having just finished my NVQ level2 with the Grove Experience Academy as a self-funded student, I was offered a position as a Graduate stylist starting in October 2018. I feel very lucky to have this opportunity as a mature student (being 29), I left school, worked with Horses and then started a family and had my two lovely boys who are now at school. I felt I wanted to follow my other passion and start my career in hairdressing as I have always had a massive interest. I’m very much looking forward to building confidence and experience at the Grove Experience Plus all there lovely team who have welcomed me in. Looking forward to learning and seeing where it takes me.
