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!
