Are great hairdresser born or made?

Hi there my friends, I love this interview with my dear friends Award winning Nicholas French, and Alan Austin Smith from the Fantastic Hairdresser. As you will discover from this video they are industry  icons and mentors to myself and many others.  Enjoy and let me know what you think?

What do they have in common?  A Passion for excellence and originality, with core values to  give back and make a difference.

    I believe the natural, effortlessness of the art, lives inside a person. It seems like that is why their is such a chasm between a trend follower, and a trend setter. Some can look at a lump of clay, and the sculpture is complete in the mind and heart of the sculptor. Another artist sees the lump, and wishes someone would give them some direction. Anyone can learn to do a haircut or color….However it only lives within a few.
