    EP222: Why You Need to Charge Your Worth with Maddi Cook of Boss Your Salon

    EP222: Why You Need to Charge Your Worth with Maddi Cook of Boss Your Salon

    We all need to charge our worth. But lets be honest here, how many of you really are? This topic is to be the centrepiece of my conversation today with Maddi Cook of Boss Your Salon. Maddi is somebody I got to know over lockdown, and eversince I have become seriously impressed by. Because in getting to know Maddi, I've got to see how she is a mentor on a mission – teaching our industry how to stop winging it, and start thinking like business owners.



    Maddi Cook has taught thousands of hair and beauty pros how to price for profit, and set boundaries to prevent the dreaded burnout. So they can create the businesses they daydreamed of when they first started out! So some of the stuff Maddi shares in this episode may run counter with what you hear a lot of the time. But I think you'll find that when you really break down what she's suggesting, it makes a ton of sense.



    You'll hear about Maddi's origin story in hairdressing and the failures she went through that has led to become the salon business mentor she is today. She shares lots of insights she's learned along the way, including how to charge properly, and why she believes we need to be setting and enforcing boundaries and policies all resulting in giving us all better lifestyles. She even shares her thoughts on a more proportional representation of women in the industry.



    Maddi is full of so much of good advice, whether you're a salon owner or independent hair professional. This episode is great listen for us all!

    EP221: David Kinigson – The Most Famous Hairdresser You Have Never Heard Of!

    EP221: David Kinigson – The Most Famous Hairdresser You Have Never Heard Of!

    This past week I interviewed David Kinigson, who is an amazing haircutter based in the America with great heritage in the industry. David has worked closely with great names at the Vidal Sassoon Fifth Avenue Salon,  New York in the 1970's and Vidal Sassoon himself contributed to David's iconic publication, The Hairctter's Handbook. David was once described as the most famous hairdresser you've never heard of. This made me smile lots.



    David is one of the founding members of the Intercoiffure North American Artistic Team and Cutting Council. His deep heritage gives him great wisdom and knowledge of the hair industry. This is what we are to be spoilt with in this podcast today. As someone who sees himself as a haircutter and not as a hairdresser, I had to get Davids thoughts on haircutting. He will also be taking us deeper into why we need to think inside the box, before we think outside of it. Plus he will share where he sees the hair industry in 2021.



    Someone I first connected with on Clubhouse, I really enjoyed this conversation with David. He has so much to share and all articulated beautifully.

    EP220: Richard Kavanagh – How To Create the Hair Career of Your Dreams

    EP220: Richard Kavanagh – How To Create the Hair Career of Your Dreams

    Today we're to get the inside story from how 5 x Australian Session Stylist of the Year, Richard Kavanagh, has created a hairdressing career full of 'pinch me' moments.



    What started out for Richard as relatively modest beginnings in hairdressing, quickly became a career full of exciting pathways and life-changing opportunities. Learning how this happened to a school kid who originally wanted to be a biochemist is a fascinating and inspiring listen. It's a story packed full of 'goosebump' happenings that have led him to becoming a highly acclaimed hair stylist and well known face in Australia.



    I started this podcast to bringing you all more on how hairdressing can be a multi-asset career and this episode with Richard reflects that perfectly.



    He has a lot to share today from when he decided to have a proper crack at finding success in hair industry competitions and how all this all led him to so much more in his life. Moments like him working on editorial shoots for magazines, how by accident he found himself becoming a prime time tv show host, and again by accident, getting on session legends, Guido's, team. Plus many other incredible standout moments. And we finish the podcast learning how he has now created, Piiq, a tool designed to help hairdressers thrive by giving them a powerful tool to help them generate and keep more revenue in the salon.



    This episode of How To Cut It in the Hairdressing Industry is an inspiring listening. Hit play!

    EP218: GUYS LIKE ME DON’T DO HAIRDRESSING! with Dexter Dapper

    EP218: GUYS LIKE ME DON’T DO HAIRDRESSING! with Dexter Dapper

    Perhaps hairdressing wasn't a natural career choice for you. Well, for a lot of us that can be the case, and I include myself in that list. The same can be the said for todays guest, Dexter Dapper, International Artistic Director for Toni&Guy/Label M. It was after a conversation with group of friends in a local pub that the idea of hairdressing could be a great career match for him. A big lover of music and fashion there was so many reasons why hairdressing could really connect with both him and his fun guy personality. But Dexter still had some self doubts about hairdressing. He really did believe 'guys like him don't do hairdressing'!



    For some outside of the industry, hairdressing can have a negative image. Sadly, this wrongful negative image can put many people off from entering into what we all know is a wonderful, dynamic and diverse industry. And jeez, once you do go and fully immerse yourself into it, you can find so many different assets and directions that you can take in a hairdressing career. Thankfully, this is very much what Dexter discovered once he made the decision to go into hairdressing after that initial conversation with friends. And it took him no time at all to grasp the opportunity of unlocking a successful pathway in it.



    He's joining the podcast today to tell us all about how he's made hairdressing work for himself and his life. He's used hairdressing to help him become the 'best version he can be of himself'. Having this approach is at the heart of everything he does, giving him a career he genuinely could have never believed possible when he first started out in hairdressing. So, if you have ever felt hairdressing was an unfulfilling career with limited pathways, then there's a lot of great stuff in this episode for you.
