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!

TRENDING: The French Bob

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.
