Icon, legend, innovator. These were just a few of the words that I used to describe this very special guest who joined me on the podcast back in Episode 23. Yes, we were beyond excited (and a tad nervous) when I had one of my biggest honours of my life by interviewing the one and only, Trevor Sorbie. Thats why for the second of our ‘Classic Reruns’ episode I had to relive this magical interview with you all today; nearly 4 years on since we originally recorded it in August 2017.

In this episode, we once again have the opportunity to re-listen to Trevor sharing the stories from his incredible career in hairdressing, and his firsthand experience of training some of the worlds top hairdressers. He also debunks some of myths on what makes a great hairdresser and offer up a few inspirational words on getting the very best out of your hairdressing career – it’s of epic proportion!

I hope you enjoy this ‘Classic Reruns’ episode and don’t forget, after listening to this conversation with Trevor go and check out our full library listings of podcasts and take a listen to some of the many other great names that we have had come onto the show. And we can’t wait to bring you many more great names for the future. Stay tuned!
