Modern Salon

August 2016

Throughout the year, all of our editors work on assembling MODERN’s annual Game Changers list of who we’re following, why we love their work and how these influencers are making waves in beauty. We love seeing where our “who’s who” is based—yes there are the New Yorks, LAs and internationals, but the majority of our influencers are spread throughout the country in Michigan, Kentucky, Illinois, Georgia and Colorado. 

In this August issue of MODERN, meet the 2016 class of social media beauty influencers. See the work that made them Insta-famous, their favorite hashtags, the pro beauty competitions they’re winning, and who they follow. PLUS discover their favorite apps for watermarking, cropping, video editing, collaging and more. 

COMING SOON: Just in time for National Hairloss Awareness month is our debut of HAIR+, which focuses on all aspects of thinning hair and related solutions designed to arm you with the information, tools and confidence you need to get involved in the hair thinning conversation with your clients. Because, as this issue of MODERN will demonstrate, if social media and competition have taught us anything, it’s that pushing yourself and your skillset is the biggest game changer of them all.
