Respectfully EP35 – Jack Howard: Colour conversation

With the Colour World Colour Genius Awards 2020 fast approaching we asked international colourist and ‘King of balayage’ Jack Howard to join us in the Respectfully kitchen and discuss all things colour. From the newly launched Colour Genius category Colour Communicator to Jack’s colour knowledge and journey, we tackled trends, social media, awards and what’s new in the colour world (get it?).

On the panel…

Award-winning (including the first Commercial Colour Genius Award!) colourist Jack Howard is renowned for bringing his sun-kissed technique of balayage from the US to the UK and teaches hugely popular courses both for brands and privately for salons across the world. As London’s top hair colourist his celebrity clients have included Gillian Anderson, Andie MacDowell, Rami Malek, Abbey Clancy, Emma Louise Connolley, Vanessa Kirby, Lily Travers, Katie Piper and more. Jack transforms clients at Paul Edmonds London under the title ‘Jack Howard at Paul Edmonds’.
