EP07 – Client consultations with Darren Fowler & Jamie Stevens

So, what are we doing today? The question that both Jamie Stevens and Darren Fowler hate to hear any stylist ask their client… We discuss why and what are best ways to consult with your clients. From looking at face shapes to how to say no if you do not feel confident in what your client is asking for, we chat about it all. 

On the panel…

Jamie Stevens– An award winning hairdresser who has been nominated for hairdresser of year on several occasions. Jamie is a salon owner with a great consultation structure, which is why we had to get him on the panel.

Darren Fowler– The award winning owner and founder of Fowler 35, a boutique salon in London’s Fitzrovia. Darren has now launched a digital education platform called Fowler Hair Academy. With his business and educational hats on, we knew Darren would be an asset for the client consultation panel.
