Guest Blog: Hairbrained on American Salon

Hairbrained is a community of hairdressers that share a deep passion and desire to celebrate the craft of hairdressing, online socially. We founded Hb in 2009, and it gradually grew to become the online home of craft-hairdressing. Constant and diverse member contributions of photos, videos, blogs, and discussions have made Hairbrained synonymous with inspiration and passion for our craft.

This week we introduced HbTV, a curated and categorized, mobile-friendly home for many videos from our extensive library. HbTV focuses on contributors who have regularly “given generously” and have produced a catalogue of videos that offers great value to all who invest time in watching them.

We also believe that in our digital world, recognizing and connecting hairdressers is more important than ever. So we have linked all the videos back to the contributor’s social profiles, so you can support and engage with them, strengthening the bonds of our community.
