At BodiBeauticious we really value people, our customers as well as our amazing employees. This is why we are getting to know a different therapist every month. In November we want to know more about Rebecca Molloy, our amazing salon manager in Rose Bay. We know how great she is at keeping it all together, but who is the person behind it?
Let’s find out together!
Where are you from originally? When did you move to Australia?
I was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. Four years ago I decided to move to Sydney and I have loved it ever since. But sometimes I miss my family, which is back in Dublin. That is definitely the hardest part of living in Australia. Thank God there are WhatsApp and FaceTime, so we can easily communicate!
How long have you been working in the beauty industry and how long at BodiBeauticious?
I have been working in the beauty industry for the last 7 years. I joined Bodi Beauticious 3 years ago
What was the best moment of your career?
I think the best moment of my career was becoming manager of Bodi Beauticious. It’s my first manger roll, so it was a really big achievement for me. I love being a manager and working with such a great team makes it even better
How is it to manage a salon? Any crazy anecdotes?
Managing a salon is a lot of work and can be stressful at times. But luckily I always have Janine just a phone call away and I think we have a great team here at BodiBeauticious. This makes my job a little bit easier.
Unfortunately sometimes you can come across difficult clients. No matter how much time you spend with someone or how thoroughly you do something, it still won’t be good enough for that person. You just smile, hold your anger in and hope that they leave happy 🙂
Have you ever had any embarrassing experiences thorough your career?
It was probably in one of my first jobs in beauty. I was working in a day Spa, where we were doing a lot of massages. Nobody warned me that people’s muscles relax so much sometimes that they can accidentally let gas out! It was quite embarrassing because I didn’t know what to think. But now I know it’s normal.
What’s your favourite part of your job?
My favourite part of my job is definitely all the people you meet. I end up seeing someone more than my own friends, so I build good relationships with them. I also love seeing people leave the salon happy, it’s a rewarding feeling to know that you made the smile on that person’s face.
What would you do if you weren’t a beauty therapist and salon manager?
Strangely enough I always wanted to be a midwife. I don’t think I would have been able to study for that long though!!
What’s the secret of your success?
I think I am a very hard worker and I believe that hard work pays off. I also think having a positive look on things helps to have positive outcomes. And obviously I have Janine to thank for my success in Bodi Beauticious. Without all her help, training and hard work I wouldn’t be where I am now. She’s an amazing boss and leader and I look up to her a lot 🙂
What do you do in your free time?
In my free time I love to spend time with my boyfriend and friends. All my family live in Dublin so my friends become my Australian family. I love seeing all the different beaches and parks around Sydney and I still have a lot more to see!
