Most Informative Hair Podcast

Whether your a commission-based stylist or an independant stylist, The Hair Game is Pro Stylist. It is by far the most informative and up to date hair podcast. It delivers the goods on how to be a rock star hairstylist and also helps leaders elevate themselves to a standard others can follow. Eric is very personable and provides easy-going conversations with the best in the business. IG: @_katari_
