About HairHobo

Samantha, also known as HairHobo, was born and raised in Southern California. Introduced to the beauty industry in 2008, Sam has worn many hats such as educator, salon suite owner, and of course your everyday hairdresser working from behind the chair. On her journey she has been mentored by her peers which inspired her to create a podcast for beauty professionals. During this experiment she has discovered the power in sharing, her true purpose. We all have something to offer. We can all learn from each other without greed or ego and instead with love and vulnerability. She believes in growth not only as professionals but as human beings. I believe our value as beauty professionals is not based on skill but on character. To be constant in discovering new ways to be better inside and outside of the salon.   She currently lives in Northern New York where she continues to share her love for the industry.

What is a Hobo?

A traveling worker
who is more than willing to work, as their main purpose is to travel.


Everyday beauty professionals and their personal experiences in & outside of the salon
Everyone has a story. We all have walked paths in darkness and in light.

This podcast was created because I have found so much inspiration from the people around me. I wanted a place where everyday beauty professionals could share their story, not just their success but their failures too. The purpose for these episodes is to hopefully inspire listeners to take action and for professionals to know they are not alone in this climb to the top. There is enough room for us all and maybe, just maybe, one of these stories will help you get to where you want to go. We all have something to offer. What's your story?
