Episode Notes

Twylla Jane cuts hair for humans. That means whatever your gender identity or sexual orientation, you are welcome at Twylla’s Chicago area salon, and you’ll pay the same prices and be offered the same services as any other human who walks in the door. What’s more, the salon culture encourages self expression and has measures in place to make sure each individual’s personal pronouns are respected. And did we mention the salon is Harry Potter themed? Also in this episode: silent appointments, tips for dealing with burnout, and lots of laughs!
