Tip to get best results on a post: Post at night! I find 9pm EST for me works best. Also, trying to grab a particular brands attention works best for me at 7:30am EST. I usually will get a repost that morning. Then untag/retag a day or 2 later to snag a repost at the times listed above. Just get engaged and post frequently!

Favorite professional beauty products: Sexyhair! My faves include Play Dirty, Frenzy, Powder Play, and Spray and Stay

How social media changed my life: It’s given me a platform to share my knowledge and ideas with other talented stylists. 

The first time I was featured on MODERN SALON was….:  this past May 2017 on FB with my Minty Fresh braids I created! I'm sure the whole entire world heard me screaming with excitement!

Jamie Newman | August 7, 2017

We love repping the whole beauty community, but we feel a certain obligation to make sure our Midwestern neighbors get their well-deserved limelight. After a friend visited this MODERN SALON 100's honoree's salon in St. Louis, we found Kristina Cheeseman on Instagram and were blown away--literally. Cheeseman showcases many of her color creations in wind-blown stills, and we'll never stop obsessing over them.
