EP46 – Gary Hooker & Michael Young discuss wellbeing

 
Gary Hooker & Michael Young join Nicky Pope and Lauren Stone for a discussion of mental health and wellbeing and how they are coping with the Lockdown in the UK and salons not being due to re-open for some time.

On the panel…

The couple own the luxe hairdressing brand Hooker & Young with four salons in Newcastle and the North East of England. They are award-winners on every level, from creative to business, with brand ambassador roles at Schwarzkopf Professional and a wealth of experience in education and showmanship. We asked them to share their experience of Lockdown, managing a 60 strong team, and their fears and hopes for the future of hairdressing.
