Loved Moselys episode.

He always inspires me! So happy you featured him again.
I have to say. I always find that the hair overseas is unimpressive. However. I recently went to Spain and I found that there was a lot of gorgeous styles. Both color and cut. Less balayage. More reds and platinums. Cute bobs and pixies.
Just had to let you know.

So informative and “On Point”

Love listening to this podcast! Can’t wait til Salon Republic comes to Chicago! So informative and on point! I listen every morning before a long day in the salon. Gets me inspired! Cynthia.Yosef.Art
