Introducing the Good Hair Diaries
Launched on 27th April, ghd is proud to present the Good Hair Diaries, a weekly conversation with members of our UK styling community, with a stellar line-up of confirmed guests including industry icons, ambassadors, creative artists and entrepreneurial salon owners.
Hosted on Instagram Live on the @ghdhairpro channel and presented by UK Head of Education Janine Jennings, each week we will be connecting with a different special guest to get their take on how they are dealing with the current situation, as well as sharing their top tips and advice for staying connected with their teams, and what is keeping them inspired and creative while staying safe at home.
“This is the toughest time we have seen, but I remain extremely positive about the future of our incredible industry”, says ghd UK Managing Director, Antony Strianese. “We will come back stronger than ever, with creativity, and adapt together to build new ways of dealing with what comes next.”
Our first guest, Colin McAndrew of Medusa Hairdressing, shared valuable insights into how he is finding new ways to keep in touch with his 70-strong team across their 6 salons; since lockdown has begun, they have taken part in valuable online learning sessions with Zoë Irwin, and Colin even surprised the team by sending each team member a special delivery for a Medusa pizza party!
Complementing this, Janine will also be running a special fashion-led feature on Fridays, ‘Front Row with…’, where guests will be sharing their inspiration, experiences and favourite hair that they have created at global Fashion Weeks, as well as editorial, red carpet and session shoot work.
“I’m thrilled to have such a great line-up of guests to start our Instagram live sessions!”, says Janine. “There is so much that we can learn from sharing their experiences as business owners, mentors, creatives… as we all face a ‘new normal’, we hope to share their individual takes on what they have found is helping them to overcome challenges, all while looking ahead to what will be a positive future for our industry.”
