    EP196: Ben Brown – Finding Your Life Purpose

    EP196: Ben Brown – Finding Your Life Purpose

    Over the last year everything has changed for us all around the globe. As hair professionals being forced to stop working has given for many of us the chance to reflect on where we are at it within our lives and asking ourselves: have we found our life purpose?



    I know, a heavy question but as we head back to doing hairdressing again, I wonder if slowing down and stopping has turned your head to to the possibility of new opportunities, new goals, new journeys? Curious, I just had to ask this question to former guest of the show and leading international educator, the brilliantly talented, Ben Brown.



    When I last spoke to Ben in 2018, it was so exciting to learn about his first steps into becoming a hairdressing educator. Listening back to that podcast, it struck me that being an hair educator really gave Ben his life purpose of sharing both his love and expertise of cutting hair shapes. Fast forward two and half years and one pandemic later, where is Ben now at in his career and has his life purpose changed since we last spoke? Well, that's what we will learn all about today.



    I hope after listening in to this great conversation with Ben will help you look at where you are going in not just your hairdressing career, but in your life too. In this most challenging of years it may just have given you the headspace to pivoting your life towards a completely new direction. I would love to know what that could be by dropping me a DM on my Instagram account @domlehane.



    Enjoy!

    EP195: The Mindful Hairdresser with Jordanna Cobella

    EP195: The Mindful Hairdresser with Jordanna Cobella

    In this weeks HTCI podcast we welcome back owner of Cobella Salon and author of 'The Mindful Hairdresser' book, Jordanna Cobella.



    Jordanna will be sharing with us all today how this book empowers hairdressers, stylists, and salon owners to optimise the synergy between human connection and technical ability. The examples and proven methods of communication and cues she teaches allow the day-to-day lives of a hairdresser to run more smoothly, prevent burnout and drastically improve the service for clients.



    It is often said that hairdressers are the nation's unofficial therapists and have historically been part of ‘confessional booths’.



    This unwritten responsibility can sometimes leave those in the industry feeling out of depth or overwhelmed. As creatives, we are constantly investing in various ways to improve our technical skills, but are we ignoring the part of the profession that comprises a huge part of the service? The emotional intelligence and psychology involved in the everyday life of serving the public is often overlooked and taken for granted.



    Serving the public in any capacity, especially in fashion and style, requires emotional intelligence, a good understanding of psychology, and non-verbal communication. The intimacy of changing the way someone looks, building rapport, and psychologically reading your clients is an unspoken skill we are expected to pick up along the way. This is the topic and skill we will addressing today.

    EP193: Making the Leap into Starting a Hair Salon Business Together, with Jack Mead & Lydia Wolfe

    EP193: Making the Leap into Starting a Hair Salon Business Together, with Jack Mead & Lydia Wolfe

    I love a great story of dedication, commitment and romance. Well this podcast today certainly ticks all of them boxes, as I'm sitting down for a conversation with husband and wife and hairdressing duo, Jack Mead and Lydia Wolfe.



    I only really got to know about Jack and Lydia over the last year through their growing presence on social media. But away from the high profile personas that they have created, is an incredible story that goes much deeper into this talented young couple. Through hard work and a passion for what they want out of life, they have gone about setting up their boutique hair salon 'Jack and the Wolfe' in a gorgeous coastal village in the South of England.



    Jack and Lydia will be revealing how they took the risk of setting up their salon business whilst still developing a blossoming new relationship, and all on a limited budget. It's a great listen for all of you wanting some guidance on how opening a salon doesn't have to take huge amounts of money. But you will need to ask yourself these two questions: What are you prepared to give up to making this happen? How emotionally ready are you for running your own business?



    I have so much respect for Jack and Lydia. Not only for all the industry accolades and determination they have, but more for simply being a lovely humble couple who are carving out the best future they can, for both them and their daughter.



    Want even more from this interview with Jack and Lydia, then tune into this weeks premium Xtra Show podcast HERE.

    I don't know about you, but I'm hearing lots of noise that theres a new shift taking place in mens hair trends. From mullets, tossled texture and 90's Revival, ask yourself: How technically prepared are you to cater for these new looks that men will be visiting us all for? To help shed more light on this is the Head of Education for progressive London's men’s grooming brand Manifesto, Rino Riccio.



    Coming from a family of hairdressers growing up in Italy, Rino's passion for hairdressing started aged 12 and after attending a live hairdressing competition with his father he realised hairdressing was the career for him. By the age of 16 he was winning major competitions in Italy, including nationwide men’s hairdressing awards. This grew his passion for men’s hairdressing. In his twenties he was introduced to the incredible world of session styling and developed a real passion for this type of hairdressing and the incredible buzz of working backstage at a fashion show.



    Rino is the natural fit for me to talk to when it comes to learning everything that's mens hair trends post-Lockdown 2021. He will be bringing to this episode all his wealth of experience and knowledge that he has gathered from the world of mens hairdressing and session. So if you're ready to up-skill on the latest mens hair trends then this podcast will help you on your way. Go ahead hit that play button.
