Welcome to HJ's Freelance Week 2022: The Official Schedule

HJ's Freelance Week, sponsored by Wella Professionals is taking place from Monday 24 October to Friday 28 October – and will be jam-packed full of content for freelance hairstylists, mobile hairdressers, chair renters, session stylists and everything in-between. The week is inspired by European Freelancer’s Week and the idea is to give you a week filled with business, educational, and inspirational content that will help you to continue succeeding as a freelancer during these difficult times or to give you the answers to all of your questions if you’re considering becoming a freelance hairstylist or barber in the near future. Hairdressers Journal International's editor Charlotte Grant-West said: "The rise in the number of stylists who now consider themselves freelance suggests that this 'trend' isn't going anywhere. Our last HJ Insider survey revealed that 47% of the industry classed themselves as freelance. Although we're still feeling the effects of Covid-19, and the current cost of living crisis and energy price rises have produced a lot of challenges, people are still making the move to setting up on their own. The industry is looking for ways of working that offer flexibility, more balance and more variety – which a freelance lifestyle can sometimes offer. HJ always strive to support freelancers whether they're based in the salon, working on a mobile basis or are part of a collective. Drop us a DM if you'd like to see any particular topic covered in the future."
