Most viral post: In January I posted a video of some clips of my balayage work while I was doing it and after it was completed for a class in Nashville. The model had gorgeous hair so that is probably why it reached 128,611 views.
Favorite apps: LumaFusion, it’s a video editor and I just enjoy playing with my videos on that app with all its effects. Facetune to make my clients have bigger lips and perfect noses; and SplitPicPro, I can make collages and blur the lines out to make to photos cohesive and soft.
Favorite hashtags: #Brazilianbondbuilder #balayage #colormelt

Pro tips: Daytime lighting is best—before 2 p.m. and after 5 p.m. in a cave where the light isn’t shining directly on the hair. I’ve noticed that when I post photos at 2 a.m., by the time I wake up in the morning they have the most engagement with people.
