How We Started
Posted on September 29 2018
Hey Blo Queens,
Happy New Year!
Recently we have been getting lots of comments and DM’s on instagram about how Pro Blo started so it gave us a perfect excuse to update our blog, so here it goes...
Pro Blo Group launched in November 2014 by our Founder/Managing Director Rebecca McCann (@Rebecca_pbg). Rebecca was inspired by her love of a blow-dry, and a broken hair brush. With a vision to create a product range that was luxury yet affordable, Rebecca knew exactly what she wanted, although working between her mum's kitchen and a deralict house her father owned, the dream seemed almost impossible. Rebecca's initial plans to sell on eBay quickly halted when she started to realise that other women also craved the salon blowdry but couldn't give the time or money to maintain it. Rebecca quickly started to live by her motto;
Rebecca has always taken risks - none bigger than renting out her apartment to return to her mum's spare room to start the brand. With that risk came passion, commitment and a real obsession with making Pro Blo happen.
Rebecca's drive and determination has lead to a journey beyond her wildest dreams. In the first year, Pro Blo went from Rebecca's mum's kitchen to being one of the hottest hair brands in the beauty industry. Pro Blo was awarded No.1 Tool For Curls, featured in Vogue and stocked in the prestigious Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, Bloomingdales to name just a few. The brand has picked up a real cult following across the globe and is a regular behind the scenes on The X-Factor, DOI, Strictly Come Dancing and many more.
And that was just year one!
We are now in year four?! How did that happen? We understand what our customer wants and we work hard to deliver and exceed just that. We have new products in development, distribution launching into new countries and most importantly we are creating relationships with you, our customers. Instagram is really becoming a Pro Blo Family and the love and support we get is overwhelming at times.
Rebecca has started to step out from behind the brand a bit more and shares lots of BTS and some of her everyday highlights (and sometimes the tough times) on instagram so for more of this be sure to follow her instagram @rebecca_pbg
We can't believe how crazy lucky we are to have the BEST customers, so thank YOU! Thank you for supporting us, for sharing our secret to great hair and for believing in our baby brand and backing us.
We are so excited to see what this year brings...
