Persuasive, passionate and a blooming good watch, is our review of a new hairdressing film documentary called ‘Journey to my destination’. Joining a select audience of 100 industry professionals earlier this week, we can report the lot of us were both laughing and crying, before giving a standing ovation to movie makers British Hairdresser of the Year Sally Brooks, and videographer/barber Gabriel Maciuca.
This power pair were inspired to spend nearly a year on the project, aiming to showcase how hairdressing should be a first-choice career, not simply a ‘might-as-well’.
In the process, Sally takes viewers through the potential highlights of this exciting profession, asks big names in the industry to tell their stories. She also gives her own unique insight into what it takes to get to the very top – advice which can be translated across many other careers.
As one of the contributors says: “Somewhere along the line we have forgotten to value creativity and those who create things with their hands; those who think outside the box and bring their ideas to life. And yet these skills are actually the most important factors in some fantastic careers.”
- Released on Amazon Prime on 15 February.
- Bonus material: There will also be a DVD/download with extended interviews from the artists involved
