Jayne Rutland - Hairy Jayne Handmade

Jayne is a hairdresser who also makes her own range of handmade haircare. In 2013, her business ran into a stumbling block as a change in cosmetic law meant that all her products needed re-testing. She turned to crowd-funding platform Indiegogo to raise the funds she needed to carry on. Jayne's campaign was creative, fun and well-executed - join us at Crafty Fox Talks to hear how she did it.
