Jul 11, 2023 | Indie Insights

There’s a lot of talk around at the moment around ‘indie’ hairdressers, and many people are searching on Google ‘What is an indie hairdresser?’. Indie is short for ‘independent’ and here at Unwritten our business is focused around indie hairdressers and their customers. For us, and indie hairdresser is any hairdresser that works for themselves, by themselves.

There are a lot of different names for indie hairdressers, sole trader hairdressers, freelance hairdressers, home hairdressers, mobile hairdressers, session stylists, contract hairdressers, and the list goes on. But we like the name indie as it suggests an aire of freedom and flexibility which indie hairdressers enjoy.

Being an indie hairdresser is as much about running a serious commercial hairdressing business as it is about being able to work when you want and where you want. It’s better for lifestyle, enjoying time with friends and family, and it can be more financially rewarding with less overheads, and more time spent with each customer.
