Pro tip: Be REAL, Be YOU! Everything doesn't have to be perfect. Everything DOES need to reflect who you are as an artist. Open your mind to what success on a post looks like.  It might not be in the numbers, it may be the person who sits in your chair, excited to have their hair done by you, excited to be a part of the art you create!

Favorite products: Aveda

How social media changed my life: Social media is such a powerful connector! I was changed because I could see so many other artists' work and try to elevate my own. It used to be you only really saw the work of the stylist in your salon and in magazines. Social media opened us all up to each other. Inspiration is at an all-time high!

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.
