Screen Shot 2019-07-15 at 3.16.02 PM.png

The Hair Love family KNOWS that love is stronger than fear, collaboration is more powerful than competition, and women are happiest when we are supporting each other!

These ideas are the foundation of the Hair Love brand, and the reason we decided to continue spreading light and love with the Hair Love Radio Tour! Our hope for this tour is that strangers would come away as friends, and everyone in attendance could learn and fill up their cups with inspiration from some powerful, wonderful women in the hair industry.

Pair a live podcast recording for Hair Love Radio with industry experts, a live DJ, out-of-this world swag bags, and a swoon-worthy venue, and you have the perfect recipe for an amazing night! We kicked off our live podcast tour in Scottsdale, Arizona, and we were blown away with a sold out, standing room only night filled to the brim with magic!

We gathered in a magical venue called Q Space for our first night of the Hair Love Radio tour, and boy was it amazing! Our events staff transformed the space into a Hair Love Heaven, and that is just the beginning!

Nestled in the parking lot outside, the iconic Hair Love RV was on display in its full glowing glory. It made for some cute Instagram stories and photo moments!

The party kicked off with check-in, everyone finding their seats, and checking out the goodies in their Dream In Color swag bags!

Wise words from wise women

Jenny, Cassandra, and Shannel had so much amazing experience and advice to share with us in Scottsdale. Here are a handful of amazing quote from each of them.

I am the queen of failure… I have fucked up on every single project I have ever done… I think failures are good as long as there’s a takeaway. Know that you’re awesome, learn from it, and move on.

Jenny Strebe

You do have control. You maybe don’t have control over every bit of your circumstances… What decisions are we willing to make every day to create the reality that is around us?

Cassandra Platinum

Whatever you have been through in the past that is hard, don’t see it as a failure or as something that held you back, see it as something that made you stronger.

Shannel Mariano

Jenny also said something beautiful about being a mom to her daughter, something that so many of us mothers can relate to when it comes to spending time away from home to focus on our careers:

She sees a strong woman role model, and I think that’s going to be impactful for her the rest of her life.
