Christmas in July at Barrie Stephen

Christmas in July means starting the season of goodwill early at Barrie Stephen! In collaboration with the support of his styling tool partner, ghd.  Barrie has contributed 50 styling tools to the future hairdressing stars of the Heart of England training academy at a time when students are struggling financially.

“Gifting 50 sets of these top of the market ghds, premium styling appliances is a nice way to help students to build up their kit bags and also be proud of their kit as they start their careers,” says Barrie. “It was an honour to help by gifting them styling tools that will last and last as they practice their craft in years to come – I think it’s all about learning with the best from education to techniques, skills, support and tools”.

Barrie has worked with the college for 12 years now has been talking with ghd about a collaboration that could support this local training provision. In a desire to support under-privileged, budding talent coming into hairdressing, Barrie and Nicky from ghd developed a supportive plan that would reach these starters in the industry. Barrie Stephen has built his local and industry profile on collaborative community outreach, and his association with the college is one such project. “This is very much at the core of who we are at Barrie Stephen, and this is just another fabulous collaboration with The Heart of England Training,” concluded Barrie.

Additionally, Barrie gifted his entire team with a new ghd styling tool in celebration of his association with what he feels is a perfect fit for his brand and clients. “This was really a way of thanking them for looking after our clients so brilliantly in these crushingly hard months, they are the most stylish team I know and this gift seemed fitting.”
