SELF/STYLED Sunday: Live life in the fast lane!

by | 26 Sep 2022

Our latest SELF/STYLED Sunday event was all about ‘Fast Track To Success’, and we’re hitting the pedal to the metal to accelerate into the future!

From fast-acting colour innovations to frank discussions of the needs of independent hairdressers, everything was focused on how you can build up your freelance business for greater success.

We were certainly feeling the need for speed on 25 September, with so many growing pressures from clients and fixed costs alike. Luckily we had just the solution, with three colour masterclasses from Indola, L’Oréal Professionnel Paris and – making its SELF/STYLED Sunday debut! – Goldwell.

We also heard from FHA founder Sheila Abrahams, along with members Cristina Fazzone and Renee Riley, about the support offered by the group and the unique opportunities presented to freelance professionals.

SELF/STYLED Sundays, held on Zoom, have always been about building community, providing a safe space to ask questions, and providing key education to help independent hairdressers keep up-to-date with our ever-changing industry. Live viewers were also treated to an exclusive discount code from our brilliant event partners, Aston & Fincher, to stock up on some of the products mentioned in the masterclasses.

Here’s just some of the key advice we took away from each of the sessions. You can re-watch all of the sessions on our Facebook page now – remember, only ticket holders and live viewers get that all-important code for Aston & Fincher!

Indola – Impress with XpressColor

I absolutely believe that you get the same service, if not better, in home salons. With one client at a time, your full attention is on that client – and my clients have said the same.Abigail Jarrold
Late night appointments are always express appointments. The profitability of XpressColor really fits into that – think about your time-poor clients, but also those clients that are always late! Once you’re into your final hour of work, XpressColor still gives you options. Sarah Taylor

FHA – Your FHA Questions Answered

We’re all running single businesses. The idea behind the FHA is to bring you what you need at the cost that you can afford. Anything that we do for our members is always, always affordable.Sheila Abrahams


L’Oréal Professionnel Paris – Bronze French Glossing

This technique is all about freshening up the balayage looks you’re used to seeing with brunettes and coppers. It’s easy to work in triangles, and the dimension is so effective; it works with all tones. Having an accurate drop is what creates that brilliant dimension.Nancy Stripe

Goldwell – Power Up Your Gloss!

The Gloss Tones are great for business, not just for their results. It’s like a toner and treatment in one, so you can get the most out of the time at the basin with each client. Just 10 minutes gives you beautiful tonal results, diamond gloss shine and a treatment result in one.Lydia Wolfe
