some of the greatest places and have met some really nice people over the years who I speak to all of the time and have become really close too. However, the main positive is that I get paid to do something I love. No day is ever the same and I love styling hair, the creativity and the buzz when you see the look of happiness when someone has a haircut they love, suit and feel confident in. It’s what drives me. If you could change something and do something a little differently what would it be? Hmmm if I could change something? Nothing, I’ve got to keep working hard, growing as a person and working hard to achieve my dreams. You can’t change the past, just learn from it and the most important thing is to keep trying. It’s about self-improvement and feeling good about yourself. As long as I feel like I do my best and keep trying, I’m happy. What’s been the most random gift someone has ever given you? The most random gift that I’ve received is a £1200 Monclur Jacket. It was totally out of the blue. I don’t know why they gave it to me but I must have looked cold when I was cutting hair haha.... What are we to look for from you within the near future? There’s a lot in store for the future. I’m building my team at the moment so you’ll definitely be seeing Daniel Johnson the brand in a few places. I can’t say to much but stay tuned. It’s really important to nurture new talent so I invest a lot of time doing it. Young people have a lot of talent. People helped me when I was starting out so I think it’s really important for me to give back too. I’m really proud of my team at The Daniel Johnson Academy, they’re very talented and dedicated. If someone wanted to go into hairstyling, or even having their own salon, what is the main advice you’d give to them? The main advice I’d give to up and coming hairstylists is ‘believe in yourself, stick to what you want to do, and go for it. You need to be thick skinned too as, like with anything, you’ll go through some ups and downs in your career but don’t give up. Only the great get through it all so keep trying. Good luck!’ Thank you for taking the time out to speak to us, It’s been an absolute pleasure finding more about you. I wish nothing but the best for you within the future regarding your products, salon etc. As you’ve had impressive feedback from people in the past I hope it continues.
