Most viral post: 12 years ago, I flooded the internet with photos that went viral from my blog, Boxn216.com. These post went viral because at the time I was the only hair dresser doing current hair, and every client brought in those photos to their hairdressers as inspiration.
Favorite apps: Facetune for smoothing our blemishes and fine lines on my clients skin—I never edit anything on the hair; Diptic is also another app I use to split before-and-after photos.
Favorite hashtags: #blonds #brunettes #redheads
I follow: @cwoodhair @harryjoshhair @davidvoncannon @hairbyadir @jenatkinhair
Pro tips: Shoot with a white background and use natural light.
Hidden talent: I hike eight miles four days a week, and I box.
How social media changed my life: Because of social media, I was able to flood the internet and showcase my brand 10 years ago with my blog boxn216.com.
