This episode is an extremely rare insight in to one of hairdressings greatest ever names. Anthony’s story is spellbinding, as the man himself talks candidly about the early days of the Toni & Guy brand, the TIGI era, and his latest creation with his wife Pat Mascolo – the beautifully aesthetic Infringe Magazine that celebrates hair culture from around the world.

Podcast cover

Have you ever considered joining forces with a fellow industry colleague to create unique hair education? Interested to know more, then we’ve a treat for you today.

In todays episode we have to heavy hitters of Irish Hairdressing, as I’m joined by the owner of Cut Social, Katrina Kelly, and L’Oreal Young Colourist winner, Conor Doyle. Both with an aligned common goal of collaboratively sharing to the industry their experiences and passions for their craft, I love how and why these two free spirits came together back in 2018.

Fulled by each others creativity and drive, Katrina and Conor are a generation of hairdressers attracted to collaborating – in their case, as collaborative educators. Creating education together has helped them to bring out each others best skills, whilst bouncing off each others different expertise. As Connor says, “We have very different ways that we educate and do hair. This provides a different mindset that you can pick and choose in creating unique hair education.”

If there is one takeaway that I hope you get from todays podcast, is that you and your industry peers that you respect have so much potential together, by joining forces to share and inspire others. By working collaboratively can also help you become more aware of your strengths, as well as your weaknesses … so go on, give it a go!

Rank #6: EP144: Ryan Forsythe of Trevor Sorbie – Being a Happy Successful Hairdresser

Podcast cover
Read more

Now more than ever you need to work really hard at being a happy successful hairdresser. This is hard when we are all at home in isolation, right? No, it’s never been such a good time!

With so much down time, nows the time to absorb new information and ideas. With a wealth of digital and online education in the palm of our hands, planning daily training into your routine will see you come out of isolation a much more happier successful hairdresser.

To help us with this is today’s guests, Ryan Forsythe. Senior Director and Head of Education at the Trevor Sorbie Flagship Covent Garden salon, Ryan is a key member and mentor of the award winning Trevor Sorbie Artistic Team. With a natural creativity and willingness to challenge himself, Ryan says, “Giving yourself a planned structure to what you want to achieve can make you become a happy successful hairdresser”. Today he’s about to inspire you on ways to challenge yourself to being a happier successful hairdresser whilst in isolation.

Ryan sees happy as the key component to being successful. I agree, but what makes you happy and how you define success is so different from person to person. One thing for sure though is ‘learning actually makes you happier’. Researchers found that one of the things that people need to be happy is to be engaged in difficult-but-doable activities. This is an opportunity for us to become so absorbed in our learning. Learning leads to increases in self-esteem and self-efficacy. Something we all need plenty of right now.

So remember, ‘as we become happier, we become more successful’ so don’t have a fear of failures. Lets start that journey to being a happy successful hairdresser by pressing play!

Joining me today for this hot – and sometimes controversial – topic is Karoliina Saunders, owner of Karoliina Saunders Hair Design in the market town of Highworth on the edge of the Cotswolds, UK.

Like so many of my guests, I first got to know Karoliina when she rocked up to perform at a HairClubLive #OpenChairNight in 2015. I now regard her as a good industry friend and someone that I greatly admire for all that she stands for in hairdressing. Karoliina prides herself on her education program and is constantly developing her team and encouraging them to involve themselves within the industry. But could she do this if she had a self-employed team of rent -a-chair hairstylists?

Today Karoliina is here to share her experiences on why her salon is employing and not renting chair-space. You’ll hear how she originally had the visions of creating her salon to be a collaborative space for self-employed hairstylists started to crack when the team ethic was not shared by everyone. If you’re weighing up the pros and cons on employing over self-employed for your salon, then this episode has bucket loads of unmissable information for you. Let’s jump to it!

Rank #17: EP107: Working as a Self-Employed Hairdresser – with Freya Haines

Podcast cover
Read more

There’s no doubt that working as a self-employed hairdresser has never been so popular. Whether you for it or against it, it’s here to stay! But what does it take to become a self-employed hairdresser, and what could you expect?? Thats why today I’m in conversation with a leading independent hairdresser, Freya Haines, who’ll be answering these questions and more on working as a self-employed hairdresser.

Getting disillusioned with hairdressing, Freya felt ready for a new direction in her hairdressing career. Leaving her safe employed job with a leading salon name, she stepped into the world of being a self-employed hairdresser. Based at the Hunter Collective – a unique co-working salon space for leading independent hairdressers, she has found a new creative freedom and way of working that suits her lifestyle.

In a really insightful interview, our talk with Freya reveals how life as an independent self-employed hairstylist should look in 2019. No back street murky salon, with black money passing hands between self employed hairdresser and salon owner, Freya and Hunter Collective is the perfect model to show how both can work together professionally, transparently, and harmoniously. And to make sure we give fair balance to being self-employed and employed, then we’ve got that covered for you, too!

There’s lots of great information from Freya packed into this episode, so if you’re sat on the fence on whether being a self-employed hairdresser is the right move for you then this is your must go to podcast listen. Let’s get into it!

Rank #18: EP079: Ben Brown (Bbeducation) – How Ben Created a Niche as an Independent Hair Educator

Podcast cover
Read more

Ben Brown is a successful independent hair educator. In just one year Ben has gone from being a salon owner to becoming a full-time and in-demand hair educator, with him delivering his Bbeducation to salons around the UK and overseas. Today he’ll explain how he got started as an educator and the many exciting opportunities that is now coming his way.

I hear many people say to me that they want to be a hair educator, but how many really understands what it takes? Do they understand the commitment and dedication that is required? How will they cope with the weeks or even months when there are no bookings? What special technical qualities do they have to be in the privileged position to educate others in the art and craft of hairdressing? These are many of the attributes Ben has, and if you want to do similar, you’ll need to be honest in your assessment of whether you have them, too!

As Ben says: “Above all else I love learning, and I believe educators should be students that teach, we learn to share, we grow to make others grow”. If you feel you have what it takes to be a hair educator, or even if you want to take a peek behind the scenes of an educators life, this episode is for you!

Now before you get comfortable and hit that play button, be sure to take note in today’s episode on how you can WIN a pair of Bb Blade scissors worth £250.00 courtesy of my friends at Akito Scissors and Ben – it’s well worth entering. Now hit that play button!

Podcast cover

This weeks guest has some great advice for all young hairdressers who are looking to find industry success. We’re joined today by current British Newcomer of the Year 2018 and educator at the Toni & Guy Academy, Gianluca Caruso. He will be offering all of you new into your hairdressing journey, bucket loads of tips on what can be achieved within it.

Having 24 year old Gianluca on the show today, makes for the ideal role model when it comes to sharing advise to young hairdressers on what it takes to find industry success. Moving from his native Italy to London in 2015 to train with the highly talented team at the Toni & Guy London Academy, his time in London combined with his drive and passion for hairdressing has seen him win several gongs at the Italian Hairdressing Awards, and, in 2018 win Newcomer of the Year at the British Hairdressing Awards.

Now wannabe future hair stars! Before you dive into this wonderful interview with Gianluca, lets get realistic!

The early beginnings in hairdressing can be testing. Expect to regularly be working long hours outside the nine to five norm, maintaining the smooth day to day running of a busy salon, consistently delivering superb client care, and all whilst committing to an intense 2 to 3 year training plan before you’ve even qualified. That’s why keeping engaged on all that the creative side of the industry has to offer, such as entering competitions and having the ambition to one day win a major industry award is so important to helping you maintain enthusiasm for a happy and longterm career in hairdressing.

If this excites you then this episode is for you, so take a listen and be inspired on how young hairdressers can find industry success. It’ll be time well spent – enjoy!

EP161: How to Retail Successfully in 2020 with Emil McMahon

Podcast cover
Read more

Today’s guest Emil McMahon says,”I don’t believe hairdressers should sell anything.” Curious?

I want you to learn from this conversation with Emil that to retail successfully in 2020 is not giving hard sales that you’re uncomfortable with, but more on how you need to be educating your clients on the products that you are using and why. This is part of a great salon service that your clients both want and expect in 2020.

Drawing on his personal experiences, salon business and the challenges sales people face in their daily life, Emil is to share in this podcast today tips that can be used in salons and on social media that will help you overcome the challenges and fears of retailing. If generating more income in these tough times ahead sounds appealing, then we have it all wrapped up for you in this podcast.

A former guest of the show, Emil recently launched the Don’t Sell book. A book with 8 training decks looks at modern salon life, how internet shopping has changed the way we purchase products, how social media needs to develop to become a more successful marketing tool for salons and how communication needs to evolve to stay current and relevant in an ever challenging market.

4 years in the making, Don’t Sell can be used by salon owners and sales people in their daily working life. And today we’re to be spoilt as we get the training sessions that have been created as power-points to use alongside the information in the book that have been specifically designed to be short sharp power-bursts of useful information.

Looking at where salon life might be heading as the high streets in every village, town and city change can help salon owners future proof their business and encourage clients to visit more frequently. Introducing new elements to the building can create an experience for clients which encourages them to return more frequently and to spend more money. So if you wanting to know how to retail successfully in 2020, then stay locked in.

EP160: Kai Wan – You’re Not ‘JUST’ a Hairdresser

Podcast cover
Read more

Be honest with me here. Have you ever been guilty of saying ‘I’m just a hairdresser’? Well let me tell you that you’re not just a hairdresser. You’re so much more!

Many of us including myself and today’s guest, Kai Wan, have at times all been guilty of saying this. Today I’ll be chatting with Kai on why we should value being a hairdresser, but not for the reasons of being an award-winning, educator, influencer, social media guru or anything else that we all seem to be transfixed on becoming. No, we’re focusing on why we should not loose focus of our greatest gift, being behind the salon chair and making our clients look and feel amazing.

With a dual-heritage of a Chinese father and a Welsh mother, Kai’s fathers initial reaction to him wanting to be a hairdresser could have stopped him right there in his tracks. But it didn’t. Kai has since gone on to become a highly respected hairdresser within the UK. Wanting to be the very best he could be, he certainly hasn’t under achieved. An award winning hairdresser and industry photographer, Wella brand ambassador and the co-owner with his with Jen of the 3 salon group P.Kai Hair in Peterborough, UK.

It’s safe to say Kai has achieved so much – something you’ll learn all about in todays episode.

However with so many great moments for Kai, to this day his proudest moments in his career are not the glossy front covers and winning awards. His proudest moments are how he has the gift to make people look and feel great. As he says, “Getting a page in a magazine or winning a competition is an ego boost. But the rewards you get for how you make your clients look and feel are so much greater.” High-fives to that Kai.

I hope that you come away from listening to this podcast by never again under estimating what you do. Remember ‘You’re not JUST a hairdresser‘, you’re so pivotal and important in people lives. Enjoy and be proud of what you do!

EP158: Why the Hair Industry Must Change, with Farah Khan

Podcast cover
Read more

Discrimination and lack of opportunities for Black, Asian and minority ethnics (BAME) in 2020 is sadly still very real in the hair industry. In light of the recent events around the world, I feel it’s the right time to bring you this podcast covering this matter. Joining me for it is Farah Khan, an asian hairdresser who has worked in many leading salons. Sharing some of her personal experiences within the hair industry that includes discrimination and lack of opportunities Farah says, “This conversation is not comfortable but one we need to have.”

At 16 Farah started her hairdressing with Vidal Sassoon where she spent time assisting Mark Hayes and Edward Darley. On completing her training she went to explore the mainstream hairdressing world further. Unfortunately it was at this point she discovered a very big divide, no diversity and where she was never seen as part of the team. And even more alarmingly she was denied opportunities with some leading salon names and agencies due to her appearance of wearing a hijab (headscarfs) and abaya (loose over-garment).

With experiencing such negativity, Farah has become passionate that brands and the mainstream hair industry must make changes. By all becoming more inclusive, diversity being part of the hiring process, not afraid of dialogue and being ready to learn will all help in Farah’s mission to encourage those from her community to enter into our more open and inclusive hair industry world.

As Farah passionately says, “It is a constant struggle as my community are not fairly represented and hence fewer people entering the industry. I have been campaigning for change for a long time, when I see injustice I speak up and try to educate and create an environment of dialogue.”

Both myself and Farah hope that this podcast today will start the stepping stone towards change within our industry.

EP151: The Hair Bros – New Kids On The Block

Podcast cover
Read more

The Hair Bros are a new crop of breakthrough hair artists to a watch out for in 2020.

Over the last year I’ve been following two hairstylists based at Hershesons London, Nick Latham and Sean Paul Nother aka The Hair Bros. I’m a massive fan on how they’ve been creating brilliant and engaging content on their @thehairbros Instagram account. They know exactly what their story is and why this has been key to their growing fan base a far – both to the consumer and across the industry media. If you’re looking to find your story or niche then this episode is one that will make you think about what you’re creating and why!

With a taste level in hair I personally love – undone loose texture effortlessly styled – they have been attracting clients from all around the world for their haircuts that so are good they take little styling. Social proof needed, many models and music artists such as Ellie Golding have become a massive fans of theirs, too. These boys are big news!

Building their thinking on revisiting old past concepts and ideas surrounding not only hair, but the industry as a whole. As Nick and Sean say, “We are both constantly trying to run in the other direction of the industry, more so by accident, rather than intention.” Like a wave, while the majority of the industry is crashing in and advancing up the beach, Nick and Sean are both pulling back, anticipating the next roll.

I’m blown away by Nick and Sean’s story that they are creating under the brand banner of The Hair Bros. This likeable and talented duo of Sean and Nick are certainly proving to be some of the hair industries most exciting breakthrough stars right now. Don’t just take my word for it, listen in to learn why for yourselves.

149: Fergal Doyle – Everything You Need to Know to Becoming a Hairdressing Influencer

Podcast cover
Read more

In todays podcast, I’m joined by Global Community and Engagement manager for Wella Passionistas, Fergal Doyle. In this episode he will be debunking the strategies to everything you need to know to becoming a hairdressing influencer. This includes choosing your social platform, develop the right content strategy, understanding your story and engaging with you followers. He will also be sharing how global brands identify influencers ,and in turn, what this could mean for you.

Influencer seems to be a buzzword easily bandied around. Originally associated with paying influential types like celebrities, some reports suggests that the average influencer can take home anywhere from£25,000 to £100,000 per year by promoting products like clothing, food, beauty and even vitamin supplements on their pages. It’s little wonder then, why becoming a influencer has become an all-out obsession for many – including many within our hair industry.

Now for the reality check. To get into that league of influencer is very rare, and should not be your ultimate reasons.

Being an authentic influencer should be centred around you sharing valuable information with your followers. But becoming a genuine influencer requires a lot more than just randomly posting on your social platforms – you need to have a substantial and authentic following – not brought bots – because of your expertise and transparency.

Starting out hairdressing in his native Ireland, Fergal is first-hand proof on what being an authentic influencer can bring. Joining Wella Professionals as a Field and Studio Technical Educator, his career has grown rapidly. Winner of Educator of the Year 2018, Fergal in 2019 won the coveted ‘Global Gift.ed Award’ 2019 for his work on social media. He know identifies and educates Wella Passionistas, which includes educating them on their social media skills. So you can be in the comfort of knowing that you’re in good hands today when it comes to helping you standout and get noticed on social media.

Let’s dive in!

David Bowie, Brian Ferry, Hugh Durrant, Grace Jones, Zandra Rhodes and Anthony Mascolo. Do these names mean much to you? Well let me tell you, they are some of the most influential names to come from the world of music, fashion and hair in the 1970’s and 80’s. And todays guest, British hairdressings most celebrated fashion stylist, Bernard Connolly, has worked with them all. A true icon himself!

Renowned for his forte of glamorous styling and his larger than life personality, Bernard Connolly is about to transport us all back in his time-machine, as we enter into some of the most indulgent and flamboyant decades that the fashion world has ever seen.

A true legend, Bernard stories into this world of fashion is packed full of tales, laughter, tears and incredible insights. It’s a rare glimpse into the underground scene of London fashion in the late 70’s and 80’s. If this podcast episode was a book, it would be a best seller!

For all hairdressers serious about creating a name for themselves in the industry, then understanding the heritage of fashion is so important to how it factors into your hairdressing work. No successful hair collection or awards entry is complete without the well-thought-out art direction and styling of your models. Thats where leading fashion stylists come into play – taking your hair collections from back page to front cover.

Glamour is Bernard’s forte and loves nothing better than to receive a challenging client brief that requires glamour of the highest calibre. Commissioned for large advertising campaigns, fashion shoots, magazine articles, film and TV, Bernard is the preferred stylist and art director for many on-going global advertising and corporate campaigns. That’s the quality of the guest we have for you today in Bernard. You about to enter into a very special and privileged world of the fashionistas.

It’s all about fashion, darling!

Podcast cover
Read more

Starting a hairdressing career at her mothers boutique salon in a small UK county town, todays guest Ashleigh Hodges is proof you don’t need to be from a big salon in a city to make it. Achieving many industry successes so early on in her career, Ashleigh is regarded by many in the industry as one of British hairdressings brightest stars. But this has come at a cost. Hitting burnout!

Ashleigh’s hairdressing story so far is one that you need to listen to. Not just because of her many award-winning achievements, ambassador appointments and roles within The Fellowship for British Hairdressing – including her being revealed as their current Chancellor, but how she’s had to deal with the damaging effects industry burnout has had on her mental health. Her story is so inspiring!

I’m confident many of you that listen into the ‘How To Cut It‘ podcasts is because you’re keen to discover your next steps to a successful career in the hair industry. That’s great if you are, but please be aware,  like Ashleigh, this could lead you to industry burnout as you go in pursuit of your goals. Theres some big reminders in this episode on why you need to stop, take stock of what you’ve achieved and the big one, press the reset button. It’ll be the reminder you need that there’s a lot more to life than chasing your dreams of industry greatness. More like maintaining a healthy mind and overall wellbeing. Now thats what I personally call success!

So what are we waiting for. Press that reset button and get listening in to todays episode with the brilliant, Ashleigh Hodges.

EP146: Matthew Sutcliffe – Taking Self-Employed Salons to Another Level. Tint Leeds

Podcast cover
Read more

Today’s special guest is Matthew Sutcliffe. A former UK L’Oreal Colour Trophy winner and Creative Head ‘It List Guy’, Matthew is a hairdresser I’ve long admired. Most recently I’ve become a huge fan of the salon he co-owns, Tint Leeds.

A salon where all it’s stylists are self-employed, Matthew got inspiration to open Tint Leeds after the negative experiences he had when he went from being employed to a self-employed hairdresser. He hated it. In this HTCI podcast, Matthew talks us through his journey to Tint Leeds. We will learn how its fresh attitude to producing a modern culture in todays hairdressing industry, is changing the poor perception that the self-employed salon has long had.

If your perception is, “Self-employed salons are unprofessional,” then think again. Tint Leeds has taken the best from employed and self-employed salons, and fused them all together to create one of the most progressive and exciting salons in the UK right now.  Listening to what Matthew say’s today will go a long way to cutting out the stigma of self-employed salons.

Whether employing or self-employing hairdressers, I love the fact that our industry offers us all choices. It’s all about what suits your own business goals and set ups. If being a self-employed salon is of interest to your salon business set up, then you won’t go far wrong by listening in to what Matthew shares with us all today.

I respect how Matthew is taking the self-employed salons to another level, and how his team is at the forefront of everything he’s doing. As he says, “Being co-owner of Tint Leeds my ultimate goal is to use my experience to educate staff and help them achieve what they want from this amazing industry.”

So what are we waiting for, lets dive into todays episode with Matthew Sutcliffe.

Podcast cover
Read more

Have you ever considered joining forces with a fellow industry colleague to create unique hair education? Interested to know more, then we’ve a treat for you today.

In todays episode we have to heavy hitters of Irish Hairdressing, as I’m joined by the owner of Cut Social, Katrina Kelly, and L’Oreal Young Colourist winner, Conor Doyle. Both with an aligned common goal of collaboratively sharing to the industry their experiences and passions for their craft, I love how and why these two free spirits came together back in 2018.

Fulled by each others creativity and drive, Katrina and Conor are a generation of hairdressers attracted to collaborating – in their case, as collaborative educators. Creating education together has helped them to bring out each others best skills, whilst bouncing off each others different expertise. As Connor says, “We have very different ways that we educate and do hair. This provides a different mindset that you can pick and choose in creating unique hair education.”

If there is one takeaway that I hope you get from todays podcast, is that you and your industry peers that you respect have so much potential together, by joining forces to share and inspire others. By working collaboratively can also help you become more aware of your strengths, as well as your weaknesses … so go on, give it a go!

EP144: Ryan Forsythe of Trevor Sorbie – Being a Happy Successful Hairdresser

Podcast cover
Read more

Now more than ever you need to work really hard at being a happy successful hairdresser. This is hard when we are all at home in isolation, right? No, it’s never been such a good time!

With so much down time, nows the time to absorb new information and ideas. With a wealth of digital and online education in the palm of our hands, planning daily training into your routine will see you come out of isolation a much more happier successful hairdresser.

To help us with this is today’s guests, Ryan Forsythe. Senior Director and Head of Education at the Trevor Sorbie Flagship Covent Garden salon, Ryan is a key member and mentor of the award winning Trevor Sorbie Artistic Team. With a natural creativity and willingness to challenge himself, Ryan says, “Giving yourself a planned structure to what you want to achieve can make you become a happy successful hairdresser”. Today he’s about to inspire you on ways to challenge yourself to being a happier successful hairdresser whilst in isolation.

Ryan sees happy as the key component to being successful. I agree, but what makes you happy and how you define success is so different from person to person. One thing for sure though is ‘learning actually makes you happier’. Researchers found that one of the things that people need to be happy is to be engaged in difficult-but-doable activities. This is an opportunity for us to become so absorbed in our learning. Learning leads to increases in self-esteem and self-efficacy. Something we all need plenty of right now.

So remember, ‘as we become happier, we become more successful’ so don’t have a fear of failures. Lets start that journey to being a happy successful hairdresser by pressing play!

Podcast cover
Read more

What did it mean for you to go into industry lockdown? How did you prepare for it? How will you cope being in lockdown for the next 12 weeks or more?

This was the question I put out to our ‘How To Cut It’ Community. I was not disappointed with what I got back in reply to this question. In this midweek podcast special, I’m delighted to bring you some of our listeners to share their experiences firsthand as they prepared to go into industry lockdown. Joining me for this is: Lea Shaw of ‘Rural Fringe Hair Salon’, session stylist based at ‘Adam Reed London’ Tom Gilling, Danny Van T of ‘Ginger Lemon Hairspace Vienna’ and Becky Candy of ‘Becky Candy Salons’. Each one of them left me their candid voice memos of their experiences going into industry lockdown during the Covid-19 outbreak.

You’ll hear each of them talk on how they prepared for lockdown. But most importantly, you’ll learn how they are looking to take a positive approach to learning new skills during these surreal times of isolation. I’m confident that their candid words will provide a powerful industry chronicle for many generations to come as we all look back to this 2020 global pandemic that changed the world.
