Having 24 year old Gianluca on the show today, makes for the ideal role model when it comes to sharing advise to young hairdressers on what it takes to find industry success. Moving from his native Italy to London in 2015 to train with the highly talented team at the Toni & Guy London Academy, his time in London combined with his drive and passion for hairdressing has seen him win several gongs at the Italian Hairdressing Awards, and, in 2018 win Newcomer of the Year at the British Hairdressing Awards.
Now wannabe future hair stars! Before you dive into this wonderful interview with Gianluca, lets get realistic!
The early beginnings in hairdressing can be testing. Expect to regularly be working long hours outside the nine to five norm, maintaining the smooth day to day running of a busy salon, consistently delivering superb client care, and all whilst committing to an intense 2 to 3 year training plan before you’ve even qualified. That’s why keeping engaged on all that the creative side of the industry has to offer, such as entering competitions and having the ambition to one day win a major industry award is so important to helping you maintain enthusiasm for a happy and longterm career in hairdressing.
If this excites you then this episode is for you, so take a listen and be inspired on how young hairdressers can find industry success. It’ll be time well spent – enjoy!
