Sola Salon Studios
On this Sola Stories episode, we talk with Jodi Snowden, one of our 2020 Faces of Sola and owner of Jodi Snowden & Co., a bridal hair and makeup salon in Southern California. While COVID-19 has affected our entire community of beauty professionals, Jodi and our other Sola pros in California have been hit especially hard with not one but two shutdowns, as well as the sudden halt of this year’s wedding season which is Jodi’s salon’s primary source of business. We brought Jodi on the podcast to chat with us about how the current closures in California are affecting her both professionally and personally.
Listen, as Jodi shares the emotional impact of being shut down twice, and the tools and resources she’s used to keep her motivated and inspired to get back to serving her clients in the salon.
