    Who What Wear with Hillary Kerr: Celebrity Hairstylist Clayton Hawkins Talks Olivia Rodrigo's Tour Hair, the Vintage Hair Tool He Wants Back in Production, and the Importance of Knowing When to Pivot a Look

    Clayton Hawkins played with wigs instead of toys as a child, and by the time he was in high school, he had a lucrative side hustle doing prom hair for his classmates. Today, Hawkins is known for his work with clients such as Olivia Rodrigo, Jenna Ortega, and Ali Wong, in addition to his hilarious and educational #HairTok presence. This week, Hawkins explains the techniques he used to give Rodrigo her flawless Guts tour waves, how bang pieces actually work, and which Hailey Bieber look he treated with the attention to detail he can only imagine was matched by the historical researchers behind Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer.

    Molly Yeh: Food Blogger, Food Network Host, and Author

    Molly Yeh: Food Blogger, Food Network Host, and Author

    Molly Yeh is a food blogger, Food Network host, restaurant owner, and cookbook author. But before she entered the food space, she spent her early career in a different industry: music. While studying classical percussion at Juilliard, she realized how much she loved trying new restaurants in New York and cooking for her friends. Soon, she launched her food blog, My Name Is Yeh, and after playing music and working on her blog for a few years in Brooklyn, she moved to her husband’s family’s beet farm in Minnesota. There, she poured herself into cooking and food writing, and her blog took off. In 2015, Saveur named it Food Blog of the Year. Today, her food network show, Girl Meets Farm, is currently in its 13th season; she’s been nominated for a James Beard Foundation Media Award for Outstanding Personality/Host; her most recent book, Home Is Where the Eggs Are, is a New York Times bestseller; and so much more.

In fact, she gained knowledge in the baby space with her first company, Maya’s Mom, an early social networking site for parents. Before that, Ann led as the director of new initiatives at Yahoo Autos and practiced as a corporate securities attorney.

Listening from Sydney, Australia. So inspired by amazing reinvention stories. 5 stars just aren’t enough. Thank you, Hilary!

Love, love, love

More important than achievement is how you pick yourself up from a fall. So inspiring, uplifting and energising. Highly recommend.

Who run the world?!

Discovering Second Life podcast has been a game-changer. At first I listened to the episodes where Hillary (who asks the best questions!) interviewed big names I’d already heard about, like Mandy Moore and Jessica Alba. Learning more about them was fascinating but the real gold was discovered when I started listening to the stories of women I knew nothing about (being in Australia, I hadn’t ever heard of so many of these trail-blazing women or their businesses). Fast forward and I have a new role-model every couple of days and I’m so inspired to step into my own second life. BTW, Ellen Bennett is my superhero!
