This one’s for the upcoming hairstylists we have here. It just might have come as a flash thought to explore the hair styling field. I have good news, here are a few things you can learn from the story of the CEO of Golden finger touch Adebayo Hope. A hairstylist must be able to satisfy the client, he /she must be on the same page with the client. A hairstylist must know the new trends ,hair in vogue and the likes. You don’t always have to start big, start in the corner of your room, in front of your room, on the street, the most important thing is that you start. Here’s my short discussion with the young CEO.
