    In this rerun of one of my favorite episodes, I sat down with TikTok queen herself, Tefi.

Tune in as we discuss her takes on both the toxicity and joy of Y2K beauty culture, growing up as a half-Colombian, half-Brazilian girl in Miami, working through unhealthy relationships, establishing a career as an influencer, botox, and so much more. Enjoy!

    Country Glamour & Creating Yourself ft. Tanner Adell, Singer & Songwriter

    “At the top of the list of what you need to know about Tanner Adell is she is glam country, it's definitely a defining feature for me.”


    For our second episode together, Sir John and I sat down with someone we feel is truly blazing her own trail and looking incredible doing it: Tanner Adell. This year alone she's walked her first red carpet, presented an award at the CMT’s, and had her first-ever televised performance - not to mention being on a Beyonce album. During our conversation, Tanner talked to Sir John and I about how a foundation of self-possession has poised her to meet these incredible milestones with confidence and grace. Tanner shared that learning to sew her own church clothes, spending time in her grandmother’s craft closet, and honing in on her supporters have shaped her approach to artistry. Thank you to Sunglass Hut and Acast Creative for making this conversation possible!

    • How being raised in a traditional religious environment sharpened her creative skills
    • Her CMT look and how it nodded to her heritage, tradition, and possibilities for the future

    Haircare is for Dads, Too ft. Charlotte Mensah, Owner of Hair Lounge

    While speaking with Charlotte Mensah, she shared her expertise in caring for Afro-textured hair, with products, tools, and styling recommendations. Charlotte also revealed how significant it was for her to grow up surrounded by family, having her hair done and styling it for others. Our conversation illuminated her decision to develop the Curl Power Workshop, an annual haircare and hairstyling event where adults learn to care for the Afro-textured hair of the children they love.

    Charlotte Mensah, the first Black woman inducted into the British Hairdressing Hall of Fame, once turned her kitchen into a laboratory to develop products for her clients.

Unsurprisingly, she harnessed their wisdom and built an award-winning career in beauty that spans decades. In our conversation, Charlotte talked about her path to opening Hair Lounge, London’s premier afro texture-focused salon since 1999.
