Hi! My name is Yolanda Victoria. I’d be interested in being on your show! My IG handle is @gorgeousstrands so you can get more information about me as a stylist. I would be considered a successful stylist and I’ve learned a lot along the way and I love to share with up and coming stylists! How would I contact you outside of the comments on here?
