If you’ve decided to take the leap from employed to freelance hairdresser, the thought of losing the support network you had in the salon can be a daunting one. We’re not just talking the logistics – lining up your own work, managing accounts, insurance, controlling stock flow – but also having a sounding board for creative ideas, a mentor to share in new techniques and insider tip-offs on the latest innovations.

Well, this is where SELF/STYLED Sundays steps in. Bi-monthly virtual events in partnership with Aston & Fincher, dedicated to building a sense of community among self-employed and independent hairdressers. Each Sunday edition provides a curated agenda packed with advice and information, from masterclasses with leading names and brands, to panel discussions around current industry issues and interviews where fellow freelancers candidly share their stories.

Next event: 26 September 2021

There are two options for tickets, so you can choose the ticket that suits you best:

The DAY PASS includes access to all four sessions in the day in one handy bundle, and includes the discount code for Aston & Fincher.
Price: £5 through the Creative HEAD Store.

The BUSINESS PASS contains the access links for the three complimentary business sessions, the two SELF/HELP sessions and the Panel Talk.
Price: FREE through the Creative HEAD Store.

10.15 – 11.15am
SELF/MADE MASTERCLASS
with L’Oréal Professionnel Paris
Signature Styling

If there’s one thing Jamie Stevens knows it’s how to create a lasting impact through his signature cutting techniques. Join this multi-award winner for his cutting and styling masterclass to sharpen your skills.

11.30am – 12.00pm
SELF/HELP Session
with SLBPR
Back to Skool!

Time for some more targeted PR advice from SLBPR founder Sharon Brigden. Sharon will be joining SELF/STYLED editor Deborah Murtha to discuss targeting three specific client groups as everyone shifts gear in September.

The work returners. The student cohort. The playground pick-up potential. As everyone turns their attention back to work, or school, after the summer, it’s time to develop specific communications to address each of these groups and convince them to book in with you.

2.00pm – 3.00pm
PANEL TALK: The Hustle

These stylists are walking the walk, and making the changes they needed in their career to make them happier, more productive and, ultimately, more successful. From reshaping their time in the salon and breaking out into session, to re-imagined education and building their own personal studio space — our four panellists have not stopped grafting to make their dreams a reality.

Join SELF/STYLED editor Deborah Murtha in conversation with top colourist James Earnshaw, session stylist Lauren Bell, educator and FHA representative Cristina Fazzone, and studio founder Lynette Murray.

 

3.15pm – 4.00pm
SELF/HELP Session with Boss Your Salon
Pricing and Money Mindset

Our final session really gets to the root of valuing your time and expertise. Maddi Cook, owner of Boss Your Salon coaching, will be delivering a spin-off session from her incredibly popular Pricing and Money Mindset coaching series to help you to stop winging your way through life and work out how to price yourself effectively.

Maddi has developed a super-effective pricing calculator to help you charge your real worth and avoid burning yourself by undercutting rival stylists. In fact the calculator is SO clever it is nominated for Best Innovation in our Most Wanted 2021 awards, don’tcha know!
