Well its been a year since the last proper blog….
Im very rusty on the blogging so do excuse the gobbled-y-goop! I am very excited to be back writing to the Richfield audience! Even as I write this I’m thinking where do I start? Is this going to be any good? Is anyone even going to be bothered to read it? Why cant I come up with a catchy title!!?!!
Anyway lots has changed in the last year from just moving to Bath and discovering all its beauty I'm settling in to it now. The most important for us and what this blog will be centred on is that Richfield Hairdressing has settled in Bath...... I know 2 salons on the opposite side of the world you must be crazy!! Yeah…. we could just well be!
A mission or should I say dream of the Richfield Team for the last few years.
Is what if we had a salon on the other side of the world?
How would it work?
How can we make it happen?
Well we did it! Wohoo!!
We are all so excited and nervous for this new adventure for the Richfieldians as you are with any new business let alone all the way across the world, but mainly excitement has been the overriding feeling!
To get a back drop for you guys just to show you how completely unique this all is. I am currently writing this on a 27hr plane journey back to where the dream all started; down under! In my hand i have a local magazine from the Bath Chronicle newspaper that is us celebrating Australia Day in both salons, funny pictures and all... (I'll attach a link at the bottom so you can all have a good laugh) I was so shocked and so proud to find this article last night staring at me. So fitting for this important swap that is taking place as I write.
I just want to apologise that throughout this blog things might be confusing as I want to say so much and I can admit I'm an amateur to the blogging world, but ill try and simplify as much as possible.
So what do you mean by this swap I'm talking about? Well… Our utterly unique and exciting idea of becoming international all began with how amazing it would be to be able to work in two places. Two places so far away but so connected in odd ways. We wanted to create a job description where you have the opportunity or choice to work in such opposite but beautiful places. So thats what kelly and I are doing at this point in time, passing airplanes in the air waving from our oval windows as we swap countries for the next 6 weeks.
And what better places to work than the beautiful historic architecture city of Bath and the stunning Northern beaches of Sydney. Cant really get much better than that!
Richfield prides its itself in having a European background (even being called Europe at one point) first set up in the 80s in towns in Somerset very close to Bath under Richfield by Mr Simon himself.
Anyway this isn't a history lesson........ I wanted to focus on our HUGE achievement and how it couldn't been done without the Families, Friends and of course the wonderful Clients of the Richfield Team of over THIRTY years. So I want to give the opportunity from Kelly, Simon and myself to say Thank you… thank you… thank you.
You are all brilliant and we love you so much!
Richfield has been around this long because we value the friendship's we build. The Richfield Team are family, we don't merely turn up to work everyday we look out for each other we are sisters friends we go to the Stowaway and now The Cork in Bath after work to catch up and have fun! We want to create a happy and fun environment.
We live up to our Artistic and Social motto! We believe that we can and already have created that in Bath as well!
Id like to say the last three months building Richfield UK has been a lot of hard work but like I was saying before couldn't of been done without the support of clients, friends and Family.
And YES we've had people coming into our salon who have been to Sydney, who have family there, who live in Sydney or just in Bath for a holiday (that have been recommended to go to the Sydney salon) and clients have been in from Sydney who have moved to the UK or clients in Sydney have told their english friends of us and have come in to see UK Richfield… WOW Amazing right?! So thanks again everyone this is what its all about connecting two places that couldn't be any further from each other … let me tell you! (23 hours to go!) Although by the time this has been uploaded I will have landed in lovely warm Sydney!
As someone once said if you imagine something, picture it and plan enough you can make anything happen! And I truly believe that now the only boundaries you have are the ones you put on yourself. I’ve learnt so much from this experience and one of them is that. Open your heart meet people talk to people help them out and you will be rewarded ten fold. Bath is such a beautiful community of people that have welcomed us with open arms! Im so thankful to all the support from the local people and businesses around Bath for their advice help and friendship! I wont be shy to mention them either but they know who they are! So thank you!
Looking forward to the months to come as scary and exciting it is all in one. I’m SO incredibly proud of my Richfield family they work so hard and deserve to be acknowledged! Wherever this goes from here I believe the achievement from this point here is astronomical I’m so blessed and thankful for these opportunities we have.
And I promise! I wont leave it so long next time to write about how us Richfieldians are going settling in both countries….
