EP29 – Multi-tasking with Akin Konizi & Peter Burkill

Taking time out of their hectic schedules to join us for a Respectfully podcast, HOB Salons Akin Konizi and session stylist Pete Burkill discuss just that – how to multi-task and juggle their precious time. From clients in the salon to educating across the globe and styling for shoots, the hair maestros chat through their schedules and reveal some handy tips for prioritising.

On the panel…

As the creative director and co-owner of HOB Salons, Akin has won the prestigious British Hairdressers of the Year award four times! In amongst training his team and tending to salon clients, he also travels the globe educating on behalf of Wella Professionals. Splitting his time between editorial and styling work, Pete’s known for his unique vision and eclectic styling. It’s no surprise then that he’s in demand backstage and on shoots. Busy, busy, busy.
