I’ve always been big on discovering new hair talent and showcasing them to the hairdressing industry. In today’s episode I’m joined by Casey Coleman, a hairstylist who back in 2013 was identified by myself at HairClubLive for being a rising star of British hairdressing.

I’m a big fan of Casey and his passion for competitions, creative collaborations and colour. Now part of the Joico European Colour Design team and heading up colour education at Ocean Hairdressing, South Wales, I’m buzzing to finding out more on how Casey’s career has progressed since being identified as a future star of the industry.

You’ll hear about Casey’s past, present and future career plans, but you’ll also hear a lot about his educational role for both Joico and Ocean Hairdressing. Casey will be revealing how entering competitions gave him a thirst for bigger things in hairdressing, and how he got his place on the Joico team.

If you’re curious to hearing what happened to those tipped for great things in the hairdressing industry,  listen in – you’re about to find out.

Thanks for Listening!
