Enjoy insights from our guests – this week’s interview is exceptional! Here today is A-list hair colourist Jack Howard – a big fan of HairClubLive – who is widely credited with bringing Balayage to the UK.

As a visionary hair technician and businessman, Jack understands why leveraging new technologies and social media is vital to helping you grow your industry profile. In this episode you’ll hear Jack tell how he worked in North America in 1993 – billing more than half a million dollars for his US company – and discovered the world of Balayage. He talks of how on his return to London in 2010, he unleashed the game-changing revolution in this free-hand colouring technique.

So if you want to learn more about ‘Classic, Creative and Micro Balayage’, then stick around. Jack’s about to explain all of this and loads more insightful stuff, including why you should put value on your consultation appointments.
