Pro tip: We live in a world where even if you’re doing incredible hair, if you don’t get a good picture, you’re missing out. Bring in a professional photographer a few times a week to put your best foot forward.

How social media changed my life: I’ve always treated my Instagram as a portfolio. It can be spread out and seen across the world with a simple hashtag.

The first time I was featured on MODERN SALON: My post that appears to change color as you lift it in the light.

I have always watched MODERN’s feed to grow and challenge myself and never would I have thought they would share one of my posts! It definitely grew my following and introduced me to an incredible group of people.
