Run by two driven business women (and besties) entrepreneurs Nicole Reyns and Brooke Mann, with their ever-growing team behind them!
Nicole & Brooke have an inspiring story of the hard work and sacrifice it took to build this business through a pandemic. We’re excited to hear from the girls themselves as they share an insight into their busy lives, and some sound advice for all our business women out there!
What has been your biggest challenge starting your own business as a woman?
Our biggest challenge starting the business was probably getting the salon built. We both had different ideas and needed that help to combine our ideas to make the salon what it is now! We had a few hiccups with building terminology which had delayed a few things for us.
What have you learnt as a business owner from experiencing this pandemic and lock down?
What is your number one must have in your business toolkit to remain ahead of the pack ?
What’s the best business advice you can give to women in business who are looking at starting their own business?
Are there any women in business or icons that you draw inspiration from?
There’s too many to choose from. Nicole admires Valerie Ann for her Lived In Colours and Mary Rector for her business strategies and the way she mentors. Brooke looks up to her fellow Aussie stylists Renya Xidas and Natalie Anne for business and creative inspiration.
