Today’s title ‘Hairdressing Saved my Life’ sounds dramatic. For sure! But that’s what hairdressing literally did for todays guest, Daniel Granger.

Sometimes the most beautiful people are beautifully broken.

A successful salon owner of Daniel Granger Hairdressing, hairdresser of TV’s ‘Body Fixers’, global educator, Schwarzkopf Ambassador, motivational speaker and blessed with Hollywood good looks, Daniel has it all. But behind all of this is an emotional and powerful story to Daniels life. Something we’re truly honoured for him to share with us all in his own words today. It’s a gripping and open podcast, revealing so many of Daniel’s most personal and darkest moments that has shaped him to become the person that he now is.

After his father passed, at the age of fourteen, Daniel tells of how he was given a pair of clippers, with the intention of saving money by cutting hair from home. This gave him his life purpose, and so much more than he could have ever realised back then.

When life gives you so many reasons to breakdown and lose hope, Daniel is proof that there a so many reasons to stay strong. Let go of what was and have faith in what the universe will bring you. This is the faith Daniel takes into his life. Mix that with the philosophy of hard work, determination and always holding on to that dream, its easy to understand why he has found so many wins in his hairdressing career.

If life feels like it’s getting on top of you, I guarantee this episode will help you to take a deep breathe, pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again. Tomorrow is a new day of hope and dreams.
