Interview with Ree Ree Rockette l Owner of Rockalily Cuts, Blogger and Columnist


1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career?
I want to create the life I dream of, and my old career wasn't doing that. I really enjoyed being a teacher, but it just didn't seem to offer the path that I craved deep down. I was ready for a new challenge, and greater control over my day-to-day lifestyle. I hate mornings, and yet I'd ended up in a job that meant very early starts! It just didn't feel right. I wasn't sure what else I would be good at, so I started working part time in a burlesque club, and I meet a bunch of ladies who were so creative and different that it just got my thinking. I eventually found my new path, and launched a lipstick brand and no own a hair salon. I also have a column in a tattoo magazine, run a business networking group and am a blogger. 

2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?
I love that I have flexibility to my days. Some days I work on my laptop from a coffee shop, some days I'm at the desk in the salon. I get to meet some really interesting people and get invited to things I otherwise wouldn't. I really enjoy that I can get my work done on my terms - I'm often working at 2am, but then will go for breakfast with a friend the next day. I have a fantastic team of staff, and we're a little family that I feel really proud of.

3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?
Gosh so many! Hiring staff was pretty kick arse. Being listed as one of London's best hairdressers by Time Out was one. But even the smaller moments, like being able to go away, and the salon run perfectly without me, or having someone email and say that my blog really helped them/inspired them with something are great too.

4) Where do you see yourself in the future?
Who knows!? I see bigger and better things though! I'm very driven to succeed, and I'm nowhere near where I want to be just yet!

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?
I believe you need to want it. Not just fancy it a bit, not just feel it would be nice, but really want it. To be willing to immerse yourself in it, to not switch off, and to be willing to just keep going. I live, breathe, sleep and dream about my business. I love it, and it excites me, but it has completely taken over my brain. It's not just a job, it's my life, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I also think you need to surround yourself with positivity  Fill your mind mind with positive thoughts and your company with positive people.

6) Which would you say is your favourite item off your website at the moment?
My disco pants have been giving me lots of joy...they're shiny blue; to match my hair ;-) I've also had a lot of fun with comic print!
