When Jonathan first took his gentle steps into hairdressing by doing work experience in his uncles salon, he could never have imagined what a journey in hair could lead to. Years later, it has led him to his dream role – becoming a Global Brand Ambassador for a leading haircare company. This episode today with Jonathan is going to motivate you to dream big no matter what stage you’re at in your hair career.

Working with some of London’s leading salon names – including at his brother-in-laws salon, celebrity hairdresser Jamie Stevens, he has worked with a host of celebrities and on major red-carpet events including the BAFTAs, The BRIT Awards and the National Television Awards.

Becoming a new dad one year ago changed all that for him. It was this pivot point moment that triggered a new chapter in his story, seeing him take a new direction as a freelance hairstylist which opened up the door of opportunity for him landing his new dream role.
