I get a great amount of interest in my education / seminar work and I’ve had some incredible feedback from the work I have done. Here are some of my favourites:
"Having watched once more, in bewildered awe at Lee Stafford’s seminar on Sunday 2nd October for the National Hairdressers Federation annual conference in Newcastle, I was left in no doubt that Lee Stafford stands alone as the ultimate performer and hair artiste
Lees innovative styles, coupled with his enduring ability to translate his ideas to all levels of hairdresser makes his shows unequalled by any other A-list hairdresser. As well as being entertained, the most vital part of any hair show or seminar is to educate, Lee fulfils every criteria in that department.
I have been very fortunate in my capacity as the former Great Britain team trainer to travel the world and watch and work with the world’s best hairdressers, but none come close to Lee Stafford, because although hairdressing at any level is a serious business, Lee manages to put a valid point across with comedic little anecdotes. All in all this sets Lee aside from his peers, we still very much intend to employ Lees talents and already have him booked in for various different shows in the near future, such is the versatility of the man."
Keith Broughton, Central England Area President, National Hairdressers Federation

"Lee Stafford’s all day cutting seminar was inspiring, creative and wonderfully entertaining, his ability to captivate and educate his audience is a testament to why he has received numerous awards within the Hairdressing industry. We look forward to inviting Lee back in the very near future."
Heather Taylor, Curriculum Leader Hairdressing, Newcastle-under-Lyme College
"Very glad we came to the seminar last night, you are an inspiration to a lot of stylists and your educational skills are very down-to-earth and fun.
I’m a great believer in putting 10/10 into whatever you do and you are definitely a hard worker, I love that you have a relaxed attitude whilst working, it’s been my philosophy since I became a stylist…along with making sure my apprentices grasp the traditional concept of skills and techniques in basic hairdressing. I feel when you have got it you can use those skills to adapt to any style era and run away with you own creativity…
The two cuts you showed last night look fantastic on the models we definitely walked away last night with some fresh ideas, thank you for sharing!
In our salon we take the time to get to know our clients, it's a very sociable salon, my hairdressing skills started in my mums kitchen 28yrs ago and I still love it today! I get a buzz when a client says do what you like or when they arrive looking like a haircrash and leave looking hairmazing!
Congratulations Lee on your success in the trade of happiness, we appreciate you passing on your experiences and knowledge and look forward to seeing you in action again soon."

"HCL Promotions was delighted with the booking of Lee Stafford and his team at our Hair Club Live show held in Milton Keynes…from the first meeting to booking Lee we have had nothing but co-operation, reliability, helpfulness and professionalism.
Lee inspired, educated and entertained the 300+ audience in an evening that not only saw him showcase his bespoke couture haircuts and techniques, but also shared his career stories and experiences in his own unique stage presence that left all engaged and wowed like no other hairstylist can currently do!
Audience member Sarah Thompson said of the event Lee was totally fab…what an amazing evening!
On behalf of Hair Club Live Promotions and our client Milton Keynes College we would like to say a massive thank you to Lee and Ralph on delivering a fantastic and successful event for us and we look forward to working with them on many more HCL assignments to come!"

"After going to see Lee Stafford when my daughter was modelling for him I was truly inspired. So inspired I couldn’t wait and show my college tutor what I had seen and practice doing the sectioning and cutting techniques the next day at college.
Once I had shown my tutor the video’s and pictures I’d taken she asked me to enquire how much it would cost to get Lee in to college and give us a little demo of his excellent talents?"
"Thank you for the most amazing day on Monday. Georgina will not like me for telling you this but she was so overwhelmed by the experience, she cried after you left! She was so happy."
"A Lee Stafford seminar is like no other—sheer entertainment—keeping an audience of 200 spellbound for two hours! —he’s educational, artistic and humorous, a great guy who’s sure to satisfy your seminar/show needs."
Avril Walker, North East Region Secretary, National Hairdressers Federation
"Hey lee, josie here - the stylist you trained in Cornwall at hairworx. Just wanted to let you know that since you came down I have been really inspired and you spurred me on to open up my own salon…we’ve got a big open day tomorrow I’m very excited! Wanted to thank you as you really did motivate me— made me realise that dreams like this can become real! If you’re ever down this way would love for you to pop in — ill ava rattler waiting!"
"Since you were at the salon my cutting ability has increased dramatically, sectioning and arm position has just changed the way I create shapes.
Ross the new guy is into his 2nd week of intense training and he has changed completely. His confidence and skill set is incredible. I have designed a training programme made for him to get him ready for my salon floor.
Thank you so much again. Can't wait to come down to yours and learn more."
