What an exciting few weeks we have had here at Eco Hair and Beauty. Our mission is to raise awareness about sustainability in the hair and beauty industry and what a great start we have had.
In January we joined industry professionals and hair and beauty trainers to attend Afternoon Tea with Habia and Friends. It was a great event up in Wakefield and enjoyed by all. It was great to hear from Gill Morris who is a marketing expert, and Adam Sloane who is the founder of the Men’s Hairdressing Federation.
We had the opportunity to introduce, and present our project to hair and beauty trainers in the north of England. We had time to chat with trainers who attended and got their views upon the future of the hair and beauty industry. There seems to be a real sense of positivity in the industry and lots of colleges are eager to learn how they can bring sustainability into the curriculum. A fascinating group of ladies whose students will certainly benefit from their up to date knowledge and skills.
In February, we attended the Afternoon Tea with Habia and Friends at Manchester College. There were lots of trainers who came from across the region and we had a great opportunity to present Eco Hair and Beauty. Many of those who went to the Habia event have also taken part in our survey for learners and trainers, a real dedicated group of trainers.
It was lovely to see Gill Morris again, as well as meeting Lee Stafford! Lee was also presenting at the event, and in between presentations we actually found out that Lee reinvented dry shampoo (which is one of our favourite products here at Eco Hair and Beauty) so that it became fashionable and widely used.
We had a great time meeting trainers, industry professionals, delivering our presentation, and we even had time for some cake!
Afternoon Tea with Habia and Friends is a great way to keep up to date with the hair and beauty industry and talk to like-minded people, thank you Habia! Each trainer that attended received the latest Habia and VTCT magazines as well as an Easydry towel to trial at their colleges. Easydry was the first ever disposable eco-friendly towel and is the only disposable towel to have been awarded the highly recognizable FSC certification which makes them a great alternative to regular, cotton towels.
