Detra Smith (@detrashalee), owner of Hannah & Me, Moulton, AL, is a MODERN cover artist as well as an Instagram fave. Best known for long hairstyling, the Hot Tools Artistic Director and Matrix Artistic Educator, spends a lot of time on set creating beautiful images for advertising and editorials - and credits ARTIST SESSION (MODERN's photoshoot workshop) for helping to develop her skills and teaching her the tips and tricks used to make a beautiful image.
Smith was on set this week creating a fresh look for an upcoming issue and we were so impressed with her "set up" that we asked her to take us on a tour.
