MEET THE STAFs

WHAT IS A STAF?

Well, since we throw the term around a lot, it's important that we actually explain what a STAF is… To put it simply, STAFs train the trainers.

 

The STAFs are salon owners, hairdressers, private educators, session hairdressers, YouTube stars and most importantly, our Lee Stafford Education ambassadors. They are hand picked based on their attitude, character, humbleness, lovability and talent. 

 

They are our walking, talking inspirations; Empowering and inspiring people to be the best they can be. Our STAFs are always growing, sharing and wearing a smile, they’re always there when you need them.
