Guests?

I wanted to love this podcast…I truly did. But my god, if you’re going to have on a guest, let them talk, for more than just a few seconds - the host talked so much, I forgot that he even had a guest on.

So disappointing.

Where have you been my whole career?

Thank you Hunter! Your guidance, advice, education and wisdom is so valuable and important. You have taught me more than I ever learned in beauty school. I only wish I had found you sooner!
