We are sharing secrets, swapping ideas, and talking about our individual experiences backstage, onstage and beyond. But that’s not all; there are women (and men!) who can speak on this topic in other industries as well and open the conversation about what it means to show up to work being black and “put together.”After every episode, you’ll have new ideas for your own tresses and leave feeling inspired and empowered no matter what color you are to stop fighting what makes you unique, to live your best life and to embrace yourself exactly the way you are.Part of the Broadway Podcast Network.

The best kind of weave!!

This podcast is everything! Salisha has the most unique ways of interviewing her guests. In talking about hair, Salisha weaves her way through a variety of topics, but always styles around hair! Definitely worth a listen!!
