Today we celebrate our 200th Episode and with such a milestone I had to bring you a very special guest for this one. Welcome Robert Lobetta, one of the most iconic and greatest names ever to come out of world hairdressing. To have Robert join me for this 200th episode caps a fantastic 4 years plus of bringing you the HTCI podcast.

In his first interview for three and half years, I was humbled and honoured to have him share on our show not only his personal thoughts to the hair industry in 2021, but to have him talk openly on how his journey went from a rebel starting out in 1970’s London to going on to become the Internationally recognised icon in the hair and beauty industry who is much loved and respected around the globe by hairdressers of all ages. And if this wasn’t enough for you, we also get his vision for the hairdressing future.

Robert self-confesses that he has never really considered himself as just a hairdresser, as for him hair was an art project. He never considered what he did was just hair, photography, film, or art, because he continually looked at Life as one big Art project. Something we get to hear all about today.

This podcast is one that you can’t afford to miss as we are in the company of a hairdressing great! So what are we waiting for, headphones on and hit that play button.
