The Toyin Team plans to provide young, unemployed professionals more ease of mind and a major confidence boost during their job search. In response to the recent rise in job loss, we’re offering unemployed professionals between the ages of 16 and 25 a free hairstyling appointment. 

The current freefalling recession is sending the UK tumbling into further financial woes on the back of the coronavirus pandemic. During what some economists are calling “a mega recession” — a term coined specifically for the current financial crisis, according to Elite Business — the unemployment rate increased from 3.9% to 4.1% between May and June. However, the number of people who have claimed unemployment benefits this year increased to a staggering degree due to the loss of work or low incomes. According to the BBC, “Between March, when lockdown began, and August, the number of people claiming these benefits rose 120% to 2.7 million.” This dire issue is the last obstacle any professional needs in a time of such uncertainty and anxiety — especially for the hardest-hit demographic, young people between the ages of 16 and 24. At the onset of their careers — many with looming student loan debt and lack of experience — losing their jobs is no help in easing that anxiety and stress.

As a small business/startup, the Toyin Team understands how difficult this year has been, especially as young professionals attempting to navigate the start of a new company during this trying time. The goal to land a job fresh out of university is a struggle on its own without a pandemic. The current world health crisis and recession simply add salt to the wound. However, our team plans to ease these stressors and provide young professionals with a new level of confidence that will help them land their dream jobs. 

Looking fresh, professional, and put together is a small detail that speaks volumes to prospective employers. However, what is even more important is the confidence a new style and professional look can impart to an interview candidate, giving them the motivation to remain poised as they show off all of their strengths, skills, and experience. We at Toyin want to provide unemployed professionals this competitive edge. 

To take advantage of this offer, please submit proof of age, unemployment, and an interview invitation to During trials and tribulations, a sense of community and charity can carry us through. We want to warmly welcome young professionals to the Toyin community and let them know that the Toyin team has their back during this difficult time, even if it’s with something as small as a new hairstyle.
