EP078: Philip Bell (Ishoka Hair) – The Story to Becoming a Salon Owner & Hall of Fame Hairstylist

My guest today is Philip Bell, a Hall of Fame hairstylist and founding member to one of Scotlands most respected hair salons, Ishoka Hair and Beauty in Aberdeen. Today Philip is going to share his wealth of experience to being a successful salon co-owner – the story behind his multi-awards and top tips to help you achieve success, too. Lets dive in!

Ever since Philip first won the Scottish Hairdresser of the Year title in 1998, I’ve been a big fan of Philip and the Ishoka brand. With exceptional salon standards and Philips creative talent it’s easy to see why I’m such a fan. I’m so grateful to AJC93 PR for setting up my interview with Philip today, and I’m thrilled to introduce you to him today so you can be inspired from his insights.

Throughout Ishoka’s thirty years as Aberdeen’s leading salon, awards and accolades have been bestowed upon Ishoka, with Philip being awarded Hall of Fame status at the British Hairdressing Awards after winning Scottish Hairdresser of the Year and Afro Hairdresser of the Year three times each respectively. Along with creative awards the Ishoka team have also been awarded international and UK business awards for their customer service. Of course, it hasn’t always been plain sailing, and he’s going to share a little bit of that, too. Even if you’re not looking to becoming, or not, a salon owner, then there’ still bags of great takeaways here about entering the British Hairdressing Awards and what a BHA judge looks for during the judging process of it. Let’s get started!
