Seven hair pros. Seven different stories.

Meet Anna. She used to work in a salon in Reading, but then got into session styling and spent six years working and travelling with
Lana Del Rey. Nowadays she does the hair for talents like Dua Lipa and works between London, New York, LA and Paris.

Meet Mark, a barber in Hackney. When he’s not styling up Anthony Joshua, Reggie Yates and Lebron James,
he’s mentoring kids in his local neighbourhood.

Meet Sophia, a straight-talking, smart-thinking colour expert from Blackpool. Her vivid yet immaculate “high end bleeds”
have won her 109k followers on her personal Instagram alone…

Meet Ky, a self-confessed Northern loudmouth, who first got noticed when he started cutting hair out on the streets of London.
Now he’s big into sustainability, has his own jewellery line, and his pop-up workspaces for freelancers are turning heads...

Meet Anthony. He started out at Toni&Guy in his native East Midlands and now he’s one of the most in-demand session stylists in the world, working with Prada, Dior, Victoria Beckham and more, inspiring and shocking with his taste for the dark and the dangerous.
“I just like anything that feels and looks different,” he says.

Meet Jody, an award-winning men’s hair specialist who does campaigns for Burberry, works with actors like Jack O’Connell
and is busy creating his own product line, too. His top five tips for success in hairdressing:
Follow your dreams. Never settle. Give everything. Find your identity. Be humble.

Meet Darcie, a salon stylist at the beginning of her career, building her clientele at the super-creative Brooks & Brooks salon in London.
“I love making people feel good!” she says. And she does – every day.

Meet all these hairdressers in The Industry – A Life in Hairdressing, a fascinating documentary about career opportunities in hairdressing, both inside and outside of the salon. Come and take a look!
