    Pip Simmons

    Salon Business Mentor

    Business owner.

    Mentoring in hair salons has always been a goal of mine. I am a trained stylist and have done the hard slog, working my way up from ‘sweeping floors’ to managing two salons at the age of 21. From there I moved into Salon Coordinating, and have had the privilege of coordinating some of the biggest salons in Christchurch.

    I have always felt I have a great understanding of the business aspect of a salon, as well as the mindset of the stylist, and the dynamics within a salon team. I feel that having a mentor is now an integral part of a successful business journey to take your business to the next level, and offers a fresh set of eyes and an external perspective.


    I'm based in Rolleston with my husband and two kids, Chloe (10) and Oli (8). We love the fact that, no two days are ever the same at our house! Our favourite spot to escape to is Okains Bay, where we camp at every oppurtunity in Summer.

    When I'm not working, I'm often attempting to ‘train’ for whatever event is on the horizon. I'm proud to say I've completed 2 half marathons and have competed in two Spring Challenges – the worlds largest womens adventure race! And I'm training to compete again this year.

    Bring it on!

  • WHAT OUR CLIENT'S SAY

    Before I started with Bamboo, when I thought about my business I felt frustrated and like I really did not know what direction I wanted to go in. When it came to staff and salon structure, I was feeling a little unempowered. Now I feel I have a clear direction with goals and that I have the knowledge to build a great team and an even greater salon

     

    The biggest areas of change in the business has been making time to listen and talk with staff plus I have better organisation towards this, knowing what is important and setting goals for both myself and my team. Pip helped us achieve this by helping us to think about and what is important and achievable and the tools and know how to go about it

     

    I would recommend Pip as she is calm, fun and a good listener.

    I have been working with Brenda from Bamboo for the last 4 1/2 years now, she has helped my business grow so much over this time. Brenda keeps me and my salon on track with easy to follow business tools and benchmarks to reach. Brenda helps me to manage my staff better with incentives and targets for them to reach, this keeps my team motivated and excited to work! I could not have grown my business as much as I have over the last 2 years without Brenda, as well as a great mentor, I find Brenda to be a fantastic person and great to work with! I would not be without her now.

    I have had the pleasure of working with Brenda from Bamboo Consulting for the past five years. What we have managed to implement into my salon has been amazing. Brenda is like my right hand lady, always there to listen and advise on any issue, big or small. I wouldn’t be without Bamboo Consulting

    As a business owner I could not of believed that I could of achieved what I have. Working on the floor full time, running a salon and a family provides plenty of distraction from my business. Having a business coach makes me accountable to someone. Helping to make my brand strong , looking at our KPI’s and narrowing down that productivity gap to provide our client with a full service. Systems have been put in place for my staff to push themselves and achieve amazing results. Bamboo also has the added benefit of understanding hairdressers and the salon dynamic. She has the answer for everything.

    Brenda has definately helped Pure Bliss Salon and Spa grow over the last three years.
    Being a new business that had only been opened in the new premises for two years, I needed help with marketing and support with staff. Brenda gave me the skills to do this and I now find that my business is running really smoothly. It's a pleasure to work with Brenda and I look forward to our meetings as it inspires me and gives me direction. I am excited about the growth of my business and prospects for the future
