Put quite simply, todays guest Tim Hartley is regarded as one of the world’s greatest hairdressers. After a 30 year career at Vidal Sassoon culminating in his renowned role as International Creative Director Tim left the corporate world to concentrate on his own stunning visions of hair design.  In this podcast today we will not only get to learn about Tim’s rich heritage in hairdressing that led him to this role at Vidal Sassoon, but how he sees the hair industry moving forward.

For over 30 years he’s been inspiring generations of young hairdressers with his passionate approach to hair, cutting edge aesthetic and technical expertise. His rise to the stratosphere of international hair design has been a remarkable one starting in the city of Manchester in the late 1970s, one of the centres of avant-garde punk style and ending on a global stage.

I feel it’s really important to observe and understand the stories behind our industries most iconic names as we learn not only of their wins, but of their struggles too. By developing your knowledge of the hairdressing history means developing your knowledge for a more fulfilling and successful career as we hurtle towards the new now in a post-covid world!
