Today we have a guest that I first got to know back in the lockdown of 2020, and now someone I class as a friend. Let me introduce you to Mustafa Hassan

Mustafa is a hairdresser, salon owner and the creator behind Colour-B—an innovative modular professional colour trolley that’s set to change the game of the traditional colour trolley.

In this episode, Mustafa is taking us behind the journey and development of Colour-B, from his light bulb moment born out of frustration, right through to its concept and creation. Now all set for its pre-sale launch, its a professional salon tool that you have been waiting for–if not necessarily something you would have realised!

What sets this episode apart is Mustafa’s passion and ideology in giving hairdressers a seat at the table in shaping our industry. This ideology is at the core of Colour B’s mission, making it not just a product but a symbol of unity and progress in the industry. Respect!

By the end of this episode, you’ll not only be inspired by Mustafa’s journey but also motivated to embrace innovation in your own career. Its a HTCI podcast gem!
