IF: Your advice to young hairdressers starting out?

Don’t just be good and follow what is ‘now.’  Look back and learn past skills. It will better shape you for change and for when the style tides turn.

IF: How has Covid-19 changed your vision of the hair industry today?

Perhaps keeping it all a bit more realistic and natural because who wants to be all dolled up with nowhere to go.
