3.15pm – 4pm

ASK AN EXPERT with Hayley Jepson

There’s a very good reason that Hayley Jepson is known as The Resilient Hairdresser. She worked for years as a hairdresser before training as a psychotherapist, so she perfectly understands the unique stresses of our industry and, most importantly, how to help.

Hayley will be joining Deborah in an insightful Q&A session, ready to answer any questions you have about how to balance your work and life, cope with change and many other aspects of stress, in order to avoid the dreaded burnout. Send your questions in via email or DM us on Instagram ahead of the event for the best chance to be included!

You can access all of this incredible content with our Day Pass priced at just £30 (£25+VAT)! One ticket gives you access for the full day, and you can catch up with our Masterclasses on demand after the event to paint along with them.

Tickets are on sale NOW! You’ll receive a confirmation email for your Day Pass, and the links to all five SELF/STYLED Sunday sessions will be emailed out from the 12 July. The event is held on Zoom, so be sure to have an account and be logged in nice and early.
