    EP134: Joe Mills – Creating Successful High Street Hair Brands

    EP134: Joe Mills – Creating Successful High Street Hair Brands

    Today’s guest Joe Mills has been grabbing my attention for sometime now. Why? Because not only is he a hugely respected men's session stylist who's work I love, but he's gone about creating successful high street hair brands. With brands that includes The Lounge Soho, Jo and Co Barbershop, and his recently launched new brand, MILLS, in select Primark stores nationwide, Joe shares today his story on how he's gone about building these high street brands – including the process of setting up the Mills concessions business within Primark stores.



    Joe is a humble, honest and nice guy. His first-hand experience on what is takes to build and run a high street hair brand from scratch – warts and all – is rich in valuable knowledge for us all. It's for these reasons why I'm psyched in having a conversation with Joe. Being in hair since he was 15, Joe moved to London in 1991, where he landed at the Fish in Soho. It was in 1998 that Joe took the leap into opening his first business, The Lounge Soho. The learning process to building and running a high street hair brand had begun. Something he'll be explaining to us all today.



    Don't think building successful high street hair brands comes easy. As a parent juggling childcare alongside running his brands and working on the shop floor, Joe is a perfect example on what can be achieved through dedication, passion and talent. So ask yourself: have you got all that about you? If yes, then creating a successful high street hair brand could be in your locker too.



    There are so many amazing nuggets of wisdom and insights that Joe shares in helping you achieving that dream of maybe running a successful high street hair brand, so listen in to the full episode and enjoy.

    EP133: Why You Need to be Collaborating in 2020 – with Sabrina Hill and Denise Walsh

    EP133: Why You Need to be Collaborating in 2020 – with Sabrina Hill and Denise Walsh

    New Year, New Decade. Does this mean new goals for you?



    Answered yes, then one of your goals for 2020 could possibly see you collaborating with likeminded hair stylists and salons to help you grow your skills, and likewise, you help to grow theirs too. This is what todays guests Sabrina Hill and Denise Walsh have gone about doing, and on the back of this in 2018 created together the Business of Hair –  a hairdressing education company. If the idea of collaborating appeals to you, then you're in for a treat as we're about to explore with Sabrina and Denise on why you need to be collaborating in 2020.



    Two successful salon owners, educators and social media industry influencers from Ireland, Sabrina owner of Kopper Hair Salon, Cork and Denise owner of Rustiq Salons, Kilkenny are separated by a 2 hour car journey. But this did not stop them from connecting and after a meeting up, coming together to initially creating a mutual collaboration of education between their salons. Bingo! With Denise's salon business acumen and Sabrina's award winning colour expertise, their salon businesses benefited from cross sharing education in the particular strengths. The perfect collaboration!



    Collaborating is big news right now, and I love how the idea could help the future of the hair industry . A process of two or more people working together to complete a task or achieve a goal, you'll hear how it could benefit you or your salon business, whilst also developing a support network for self-employed hairdressers.



    From in-salon education and problem solving, there is so many top tips coming your way from Denise and Sabrina on why collaborating could be the right way forward for hair stylists and salon businesses. Like I said, I love the idea of collaborating and I'm sure this could be one of your goals for 2020 and onwards, so make sure to listen in.

    EP132: I Can, I Am, and I Will – with Louis Byrne

    EP132: I Can, I Am, and I Will – with Louis Byrne

    I recently had the pleasure to connect at the British Hairdressing Awards 2019 with the celebrity, award winning and session hair stylist Louis Byrne. It was here where I first learned of his inspirational empowerment project, I Can, I Am, and I Will. I loved it so much, that I just had to bring him on to todays show.



    Completing our 3 week instalment series dedicated to mental health and wellbeing awareness within the hairdressing industry, we are to learn today on how Louis's life changing experiences led him through a process of understanding, acceptance, sobriety and self-care. It was during this big shift in his life that Louis says, "The positive mantras replayed over in my head with each beginning with I Can…, I Am… and I Will."



    Having 20 years of experience working at the top of his industry, Louis seemed to have it all. 4 years assisting Sam McKnight travelling the international fashion week circuit, styling editorials for the likes of Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and L’Officiel, working on campaigns from Net-a-Porter to Nike, been the tour stylist for Ellie Goulding, the man behind the ‘quaff’ for Emma Willis, and the go-to hair stylist for an impressive number of actresses, models and musicians. However, the journey to reaching these heights wasn’t always plain sailing!



    Riding on a rollercoaster of working hard, playing hard and fast living to avoid facing his demons, culminated in a debilitating accident in 2018 when Louis broke his leg in 3 places. Forced to pause and take stock of his situation, Louis began a process of looking inwards. As Louis explains, "I had to face up to issues including the trauma and loss that had been plagued me since childhood, destructive behavioural traits and addiction that had affected me and those close to me deeply."



    Everyone of us has our own story to tell, including our own versions of the positive mantras beginning I Can, I Am and I Will. For Louis he focused his love for the art and expression of hair styling and considered the power of the connection between stylist and client. He realised the empowering and transformative effect this combination can have which goes beyond appearance alone, and this laid the foundation for the project that connects creativity to wellness, with a driving force of positivity.



    An ongoing project, todays podcast finishes with how you can become involved by sharing your own version of 'I Can, I Am and I Will' using the hashtag #icaniamandiwill. So lets all do this together as we head off into a new decade and era of self-discovery. Happy and Healthy New Year to you all!

    EP131: Mind, Body and Wellness in Hairdressing – with Eva Espinosa

    EP131: Mind, Body and Wellness in Hairdressing – with Eva Espinosa

    It's that time of year for all of us hairdressers. Sore feet, aching calves, energy sapped, headspace full, and, yes, ready for a well earned festive break. So what could be a better time than now to recover your mind, body and wellness ready for a big new year ahead. To help us all with this recovery, we're joined for the second of our 3 week instalment series dedicated to mental health and wellbeing awareness within the hairdressing industry by holistic hairdresser and coach, Eva Espinosa.



    Originally from Spain, Eva settled her life in London and is now based at 'Our little Secret' – an independent hair salon with a unique holistic approach to hairdressing. Eva uses her practice in the field of yoga, her qualifications and studies in communication and the psychology of trauma with contemporary techniques for self-development enable her to offer a unique vision to educate, inspire and transform others in their personal journeys of obtaining great balance with their mind, body and wellness.



    In this episode, I talk through with Eva on tips to creating an enjoyable client wellbeing salon experience through the rituals of holistic hairdressing. Most importantly, these services will allow us all to slow down and be present with ourselves and our clients. This matters greatly both to your own wellness and understanding clients with varying emotions. And be sure to stick around to the end of the podcast. Eva gives us some great advice to teaching practices in mind, body and wellness for ourselves to adapt into our busy lives, followed by a fun exercise to try along with me.



    A truly enlightening podcast episode, Eva's insights into 'holistic hairdressing' will open your eyes to a completely new take within hairdressing. So lets put our feet up, tune-in and recharge our batteries this festive holidays. You deserve it! Happy Christmas!

    EP130: Challenging Mental Health Within the Hairdressing Industry – with KT Williams

    EP130: Challenging Mental Health Within the Hairdressing Industry – with KT Williams

    Welcome to the first of a 3 week instalment series dedicated to mental health and wellbeing awareness within the hairdressing industry. A subject that is very close to me, I'm delighted to have kicking-off the series hairdresser and founder of #cutoutthestigma campaign, KT Williams. After years of battling with her own mental health, KT discovered the day she wanted to help others suffering mental health within the hair industry, when an apprentice suffered a panic attack at the salon she worked in on the apprentices first day of working. She was just 15, and super keen to be a hairdresser!



    A smiley and hardworking apprentice, KT could see a lot of that apprentice in herself. Then she saw her panic! For KT it was history painfully repeating itself, so a realisation happened that she could help. As KT says, "Whatever I did on that day worked and to this day the then 15 year old apprentice had become more confident and strong knowing that she wasn't alone." It also dawned on KT that her niece wants to be a hairdresser when she grows up and this could one day be her. "If I could alter the industry, for them both, make it a safe place to talk, be themselves and most of all,  inspire them to encourage others that its okay to open up, it could start a revolution within the next generation of hairdressers." Inspired and empowered from all of this, KT established in March 2018  #cutoutthestigma campaign in 2018.



    #Cutoutthestigma is a campaign challenging mental health awareness within the hairdressing industry. A simple format any salon can adapt, the campaign within salons nationally is looking to change the face of the industry by having a structured well being service integrated into it. We get to learn today how the campaign is built around providing a safe salon place for both clients and staff suffering with mental health. KT's ambition is to link mental health awareness with the hairdressing industry through the qualification, something she explains in today's episode. But KT makes clear by saying, "Cut Out The Stigma is not a diagnosis facility, or an added extra to our job. It is utilising the information we are given to suggest and direct to the correct organisations to help support our team and clients."



    According to the Mind Charity, approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problems each year.  Theres no getting away from the fact that mental health is an epidemic. The hope of listening in to the inspirational Katie today is that it will empower us all to get behind the #cutoutthestigma campaign, so that we can teach the next generation about resilience, self care and finding their voice. You'll take so much from the podcast, so go ahead and hit that play button.

    With a huge thank you to Hairdressers Journal Jayne Lewis Orr and LWPR  for making it possible to brining you todays podcast episode recorded live from the British Hairdressing Awards  2019 on November 25th 2019 at Grosvenor House London. This hair industry first of recording a podcast live from the awards itself has to be a major highlight in my career to date. I was given unprecedented access to The Great Room and interview a selection of this years 'British Hairdresser of the Year' 2019 nominees, as they went about their preparations and rehearsals for the evenings live element show to be seen later during the awards ceremony.



    Joining me to share their thoughts on their nomination, the awards itself, how they prepare for the evenings live show, and what it would mean to be crowned British Hairdresser of the Year are: Angelo Seminara, Adam Reed, Eugene Souleiman, Sally Brooks, Robert Eaton, Darren Ambrose and Cos Sakkas. Industry royalty wouldn't you agree? And if this wasn't enough for you, I also go off and grab a few of the crowd members and category finalists as they head in to the ceremony, including a not-to-be-missed conversation with the parents of Robert Eaton, Russell and Karen Eaton.



    If you want a true taste of the excitement and drama that the British hairdressing Awards can conjure up, then this episode is for you. I  please ask that you share this podcast with the younger members of your salon team or college students, as they really need to know what the British Hairdressing Awards is all about, and hopefully will get them truly engaged in the hair industry – and who knows – maybe inspire them to one day become finalists like some of the incredible names we get to hear from in todays podcast.
