Welcome to the first of our ‘Classic Reruns’ as we delve deep into our library of episodes to bringing you some of our most classic podcasts ever recorded since our launch back in 2017. So I couldn’t think of a better one to kickoff with than this interview with Sophia Hilton, recorded for Episode 6 April 2017. Currently our most listened to podcast with over 10,000  downloads, it had to be this classic How To Cut It episode.

In this interview we got to learn all about Sophia’s story into hairdressing, including how she got into it and why she went about setting up ‘Not Another Salon’. We also get some wonderful insights into the huge social success of the ‘Not Another Salon’ Instagram account – something I know many of you love hearing about.

This is a terrific listen from one of hairdressings biggest names, and all in her very first recorded podcast interview. I know you’ll love this ‘Classic Reruns’ so enjoy!
