Celebrity Hairdresser Back to College

Posted: November 27, 2018

North Lindsey College welcomed back to the salon, award-winning celebrity hairdresser Lee Stafford.

Lee has a long-standing working relationship with the DN Colleges Group, consisting
of North Lindsey College and Doncaster College, to deliver industry standard
sessions aimed at those interested in progressing in the sector. This week Lee spent
the full day working with students from both colleges, spending the morning in
Scunthorpe then travelling over to Doncaster to deliver masterclasses to the Level 2
students in the salon. Lee makes numerous personal visits to the salons as part of
his commitment to the Lee Stafford Education brand and encouraging the future

Starting in his mum’s dining room in Essex; Lee has now become an inspiration to
the students who are following the celebrity as an example. Lee spoke of his
product range which he launched twenty years ago, starting with the heat protector
spray which is one of his product brand leaders. He has since continued to develop
his range which is exclusive to Boots. He also spoke in detail of the business plans
behind this, including how the product range progressed after a business proposal at
his first ever British Hairdressing Award Ceremony.

Lee demonstrated one of his styling techniques, or recipes, the ‘Twisted Tong’ on of
with student Jess Harris (17) as the model for the demo.

Jess said, “I really enjoyed the session today, particularly being Lee’s model. I also
saw Lee’s demonstration in May, he really gives us a different concept to learning. It
is great that he takes time out to personally come to the College and also speak to
us all. I am wanting to set up my own business one day but want to get experience
fist in a salon.”

Lee’s advice to the group was, “Get involved in competitions, get competitive and
learn from your experiences. It will make you stronger and your work will be
improved from this.”
