Renee's ultimate dream was to run a successful hair salon. Whilst completing her apprenticeship Renee was studying a management program called Salon Advantage, she did this part time over 4 years. After receiving the certificate of completion in this program in 2008, Renee retained her certificate in Waxing, Spray Tanning and Makeup Artistry. She also completed her Certificate IV in Business Management and completed at TAFE Business Skills for Salon Managers in 2019. Renee has been working within the industry for 16 years. After managing 3 salons in the local area, she decided to take her career further and start her own business. Renee founded Escarla Hair in 2012 at the age of 24. She found there was a need for a professional hairdressing salon that is customer-centric and builds relationships with their customers. She worked extremely hard building the brand and increased clientele dramatically, she was booked out 5-6 days a week with little time for work/life balance. An opportunity in January 2015 allowed her to grow and move into her own salon. With support of family, friends, former employers, colleagues, and brand representatives, Escarla Hair has become a successful reality. It was a passion and life-long goal for Renee to operate her own salon. Renee believes " Develop a passion for learning. If you don't you will never cease to grow."
Renee's creative talent combined with her infectious personality creates the ideal atmosphere for her salon. She strives to meet client’s expectations. Her meticulous attention to detail is her secret weapon. Whether you are looking for a subtle change or extreme makeover, Renee will know exactly how to give you that look you want. Renee achieves the best looks for her clients because she has great communication with them. She is great at listening to your wants and needs to make sure you are getting exactly what you are looking for. Renee currently is not taking on any new clients.
