Today I have a very special guest: Sophia Hilton owner of Not Another Salon, Not Another Academy, and Not Another Social!

An originator, influencer, creator, entrepreneur, giver, and a huge global following of superfans has turned Sophia into a hairdressing superstar. And in today’s episode I’m super-buzzed and honoured to be bringing this very special lady back on to the show to hear whats been going down in her world since we last spoke back in Episode 006. Believe me, you really won’t to miss this one!

At just 30 years of age, Sophia has achieved so much in her career already and shows no signs of letting up. In only two and half years she has opened the Not Another Salon, delivers over 65 courses a year with the Not Another Academy, and most recently launched Not Another Social. And to top all this off, she’s recently became a mum to her bay son, Hendrix. Not much, eh!?

Today we’re going to be talking all about the growth of her Not Another brands, becoming a new mum and some juicy exclusives into her new, never been done before, affordable social media consultancy for the hair industry.

This episode is packed full, and at times, touched with genuine emotion from Sophia. I feel extremely privileged to have her share with us all so many areas of her business and personal life. This is an interview that will give you very rare and better understanding of who the real Sophia Hilton is… something that Instagram can never do! So sit back, relax, and enjoy – this is Not Another Podcast!
