Name: Dale Hearne
Job Title: Rush Artistic Team Member and Educator
How long have you worked for Rush: 11 years
How has your career changed since joining Rush: My journey with Rush has been incredible, I started 11 years ago starting off as an assistant at the Rush Centrale salon, then once I received my NVQ Level 2 with Rush I then qualified as a Stylist and have worked my way up the levels step by step over the years. I now work in the Rush Academy specialising in cutting working with Andy Heasman and work 1 day a week at Rush Covent Garden. I love working in the salon, there’s not a better feeling or buzz creating beautiful hair for my clients.
What has been your greatest achievement at Rush: It’s hard to pick one, It was a very proud moment for me when I joined the Rush Artistic Team. Being part of that team has allowed me to teach ambitious hair stylists which I love, I’ve always wanted to become an educator.
I love Rush because they’ve given me the opportunity to fulfil my dream as an educator. That was seen at an early stage and they’ve pushed me in that avenue to make me the educator I am today”
