From Strength To Strength

January 2019 saw Rebecca Jade expanding into the premises next door on Harpenden High street. Our beauty salon remains in number 30 High Street, while we have also taken on number 32 to launch our new Aesthetic Skincare Clinic to focus further on the advanced, non-surgical side of the business. This location has been designed and equipped to be able to provide many more advanced types of skin and body treatments, while perfectly complementing the original beauty side of the business. Some of the new treatments now offered include Byonik Skin Rejuvenation, Image Enzyme and Chemical Peels, CooLifting, DermaPen Micro-Needling, Lumineo LED Light Therapy, Laser Hair Removal, Facial exercises and work outs and Anti-wrinkle injections and Fillers. The principals of the aesthetic side of the business are to concentrate on scientifically researched and supported skin care treatments using proven, safe products and the very latest equipment. The results of these modern skin therapies are truly amazing and we are pleased to be introducing them to Harpenden High Street.

This extra new space also allows for more retail space to be provided. This is very important for our mission to achieve what our clients desire, because many of our skin care treatments require ongoing support from the application of the correct follow-on products. This retail space is also important to fit with our High Street location where the provision of retail services is vitally important. In these days of declining High Streets, we are proud to have our double shop front location offering beauty and aesthetic services in the heart of Harpenden High Street.

As I open our lovely new premises, it is fun to think back to where my journey first began. I was part way through a Business Management degree at Nottingham University but far more interested in setting up my own business as soon as possible. I set up Rebecca Jade Health and Beauty Ltd in 2015 with the help of a friend and a small loan from my parents. We started as a mobile business, travelling to our clients' homes providing nails, waxing and other simple treatments. From the start, the way I wished to go was with High Street premises, but for a long time these seemed to be impossibly difficult to secure. Eventually in April 2016, I persuaded the landlord to allow me to set up in 30 High Street, Harpenden (after many months of negotiating and disappointment). I launched my first beauty salon in these premises on August 2016 and dropped out of University in January 2017 (six months before graduating) so I could work full-time on growing my new business! Setting up a business from scratch, at a young age, is definitely not a simple task. Most of my staff are older than me (even now), however the growing team of now 16 people(!) are extremely loyal, supportive and passionate about growing Rebecca Jade with me! I am proud of my little part of Harpenden town centre and will continue to develop Rebecca Jade as a one-stop location for all beauty and aesthetic skin care treatments.

Here are a few of my favourite pictures and memories of the journey of Rebecca Jade:

I had an Environ facial which was so lovely, it was relaxing and my skin felt amazing after. My beautician recommended what products I should use to continue to improve my skin and I've been so pleased with the results. Big thank you! I'll be back soon! X

Lovely atmosphere, and talented and friendly therapists make going to Rebecca Jade Beauty & Aesthetics a highlight of my day. I particularly love getting HD brows done with Sam, and my Signature Skin Bar facial with Kiran was so relaxing and gave incredible results :)

I came to Rebecca Jade having struggled with acne and blemishes for years. I had a consultation with Tracey who was so kind and helpful, giving me suggestions for lifestyle changes and also a personalised skincare plan using Environ products and the Advanced Nutrition Programme. I haven't been using the products long enough to see a huge change, but already my skin has calmed down and appears to be less inflamed. In addition, I have had an Environ Active Vitamin Treatment, and Image Ormedic Peel and LED therapy, all with Tracey and all of which have left me feeling clean, refreshed and beautiful. A huge thanks to Rebecca Jade and here's hoping my skin continues to clear up using the home care plan they designed for me!
