Check out what’s going on behind the scenes of MODERN SALON’s Artist Session in the last episode of Modern Salon TV! In a recent session, MODERN’s Beauty and Fashion Director Maggie Mulhern interviewed a variety of existing and new aspiring session artists.

In the most recent Artist Session which was held the first day at Roberto Ligresti Studio and the second day at Pier 59 at Chelsea Piers, stylists from all over the U.S. (including over 100 models) showed up for education and styling. A sold out session, age ranges from seasoned session artists to Hannah Keifer (who is just 19!) showed up for the photo shoot and for the presentations.

Highlights included a presentation from Jayne Morehouse, president of Jayne & Company and L’Oreal Professionnel Portfolio Artist Susie Bond, on public relations’ tactics. Russell Haley, a famed New York agent for hair and make-up also informed session-goers on how to access an agent in their own local city. Shasha Quarles, a movie session artist spoke about how the stylists could use their photo shoots at Artist Session to develop their careers in the movie industry.

And, last but not least, Celebrity Stylist Ted Gibson also made an appearance and talked to the stylists about how they could use the Artist Session photo shoot to enhance their careers.

It was two days of magic. Below are some of the hair styles you will find in the episode created by Artist Session artists!

Jennifer Bokshon from Streetsboro, Ohio discusses her model’s hair design for the photo shoot—it mainly involved crimping.

Cindy Wade Armando from A Joshua Christopher Salon in Newport Beach, California shows her interpretation of a French Twist.
