116 Chosen Way
Welcome to Beauty and Hair By Rebecca based in Hucclecote, Gloucester. I cover a wide range of beauty and hair treatments at home, and mobile for my hairdressing, and also for weddings. I am a professional, reliable, hard working beauty therapist and hairdresser, and my aim is to put my clients at ease and relax them. I am CRB checked as I used to work at my sons' school as breakfast club leader, so I do alot of work with children cutting their hair. I've had my business now for nearly 27 years.
Well what can I say I had an extremely busy day doing 2 weddings. Up at 7.30 so had a little lie in, and then I left the house at 9am to go to my first wedding in Painswick, where I did the hair for the Bride and Matron of honour. It was a nice relaxed atmosphere and everyone seemed calm even though there were lots of people milling around. I did a lovely looped style for the bride with a side swept fringe, tiara and veil at the back underneath the loops. Matron of honour had a half up and down curly style which made her look as though she had loads of hair. I left there around midday and went home for a quick bite to eat before setting out at 1.15pm to my next wedding. I only had the bride to do at this one, and I did a French pleat where it was folded in at the back neatly, I slightly bouffant her hair before placing a gorgeous tiara in place. After doing her hair I then did her make-up, and then finished her hair off with the fringe area. I stayed on to help her into her dress, as she didn't have anyone around to help, as I've helped quite a few brides into their dresses previously it helped her relax and not worry so much. Once I'd done that, I tidied my things away and took a few pictures of her and went home where I then did a BBQ for the family.
Hi there everyone, I've had a very busy day and only 3 clients. Finished working at the school doing breakfast club for the children, got home and finished setting up my salon room for my first client of the day. She arrived at 9.30am and was here till 12.30, she had a manicure and pedicure, and also lots of waxing done, we had a laugh and joke, stomach rumbling by the end of the treatments.When she left I made myself a prawn salad sandwhich and sat outside in the garden to have it, as it's been a glorious sunny day. My next 2 clients came to me also for hairdressing and beauty treatments. Found some time to write this blog while kids at after school clubs. Just about to get tea on the go, and then out later to do 3 hair cuts for a new family of clients? Hope to be home by 8pm to relax, and get boy's lunch boxes sorted. Bye for now.

Rebecca did my wedding make up and created an extremely stylish hair design for me. Throughout the day â€œstunningâ€, â€œfantasticâ€ and â€œbeautifulâ€ were repeated again and again. I felt a million dollars. This is all due to the skill and expertise of Rebecca. She made me look amazing and even helped me put my dress on! I will be using her services again and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

From start to finish Rebecca was brilliant. She quickly answered all my queries by email and was flexible in when she could do the trials. The hair and make-up on my wedding day for myself, 2 adult bridemaids, and my Mum was excellent. Both hair and make-up lastest all day and night and looks amazing in the photos. Thanks Rebecca!

This is where an auricular candle is burnt at one end and the tapered end placed and held in the ear. When it burns down it creates a vacuum and helps to draw out wax and any impurities from the ear and sinus areas. Good for sinuses, glue ear etc
A lovely natural looking spray tan, which is quick to do, and takes about 8 hours to take, and then a golden tan is produced, excellent for going away on a holiday, wedding or any special occasion. Different strengths available depending on skin colour
Using the Inverness ear piercing system it's an excellent quick and fairly painless method. It uses a gun which uses sterile cartridges containing the chosen design, and due to the shaft being fine and very sharp it goes through the ear quickly.
