Jihan discussed her background before Swivel and the inspiration behind the brand. She talked about the details behind starting this business from the ground up with her partner, how they are continuing to expand and even where the name originated from. 

Jihan shared that Covid affected Swivel and how their focus was really to support the stylist community during all the shutdowns. Jihan was also able to talk about the Power to the Pro Summit which allowed stylists to connect and feel confident, as well as a possible venture into education expansion.
