The Hair Game Podcast

THEHAIRGAME is a series brought to you by Salon Republic and hosted by founder Eric Taylor, who, after 17 yrs in the hair game, has seen a lot of s#!@ go down. We’ll go deep with the beauty industry’s most interesting players, we’ll educate and tell stories about the things you care about, we’ll get into the business side of the game so you can earn more and keep more, and we’ll go #BTS to show you how we do things at Salon Republic. Also check out the video content on our YouTube channel The Hair Game.
