Tim Hartley needs no recommendations; starting as a Vidal Sassoon trainee in 1974, he trained many more of its top hairdressers, and by the 1980’s he became a world-renowned name in the industry. The master of the cut has recently launched a new professional education platform, Hairworld, where you can find and learn all things haircutting.
The comeback of the Haircut
One of the many things learned during lockdown is the value of a good haircut, as proven by the response to hair salons reopening last July. No matter how many home-styling products tried, nothing looks or feels as good as a great cut. It’s a form of self care. This is what Tim wants to shed a light on; haircut training and education is more important and essential than ever before.
”British Vogue is predicting a new sense of freedom and embracing change and optimism for the future and it’s all about the return of the Haircut. We must return to the culture of cutting hair and invest in the future of hairdressing to let our clients be their personal best. I have a responsibility to our craft for the now and our future. My approach is a grass roots one to the industry, which means providing education in order to raise and maintain a high standard of British hairdressing. We must look at the essence of what it means to cut and finish hair. In the New Now Collection, I’m presenting Lines, Layers and Graduation in their purest form” Tim explains.
Hairworld is a unique learning library for all hair-involved people. A platform created to support all hair professionals at every level, from the new junior to the most sophisticated creative directors and salon owners.
