How social media changed my life: I started social media to have a portfolio for potential clients to look up. The comradery and friendships that I’ve made across the globe are my biggest reasons I continue to do social media, and through that I’ve become inspired to take better pictures and videos of my work, and my following has grown organically. Last year, I was diagnosed with cancer, and if it weren’t for social media, I wouldn’t have had the support to receive donations to cover the treatment that saved my life.

Leave it to the French to inspire a haircut so chic, it’s truly timeless. It’s a look that never goes away and when you see it, you know it. And lately, we’ve been seeing it everywhere.

Valsamis used GL Tapes from Great Lengths to give this braid depth and thickness.
