How social media changed my life: I started my hair account because my friends said I should. I didn't think anything would come of it but week by week the account grew and now here I am—still with such a way to go! Social media has opened up so many different doors and opportunities these past few years, and I am grateful for it all!

The first time I was featured on MODERN SALON: Pretty recently! Since I started my account, it's been a dream of mine to be featured on MODERN SALON! I've screenshotted every time that they've posted my photo just so I can look back one day and realize how far I've come. The first time was an amazing feeling!

TRENDING: The French Bob

by Anne Moratto

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.
