EP05 – Changes in the hair colour market with Ceri Cushen & Carolyn Newman

With bolder colours becoming more fashionable, we talk to Carolyn Newman and Ceri Cushen about the changes and trends they see in the colour market.

The power of social media has encouraged clients to be more adventurous with their hair, however… this can often result in client’s having unrealistic expectations as many of you will have experienced. We discuss, too, whether it is ever right to turn clients away if you have reservations about what they want, and expect from you. We also touch on the growing range of colour products that are now available, from plex technology to pigmented shampoos to consumer colours. As ever, we’d love to hear your thoughts on everything we discuss… 

On the panel

Carolyn Newman– an award winning colourist, who is passionate about the science behind applying colour. Carolyn teaches her colour courses and seminars all over the UK. Understanding the needs of various salons, Carolyn creates bespoke training programs to suit the size of the team and brand of products you use.
