Pro tips: Find a way to capture what your vision is. Yes lighting matters, but more importantly, look an image as a whole—not just the hair. Post at specific times during the day based on your following demographic.
Hidden talent: I’m a musician, mainly guitar. And I can sew.
How has social media changed your life: I now have a voice that can be heard by the world in an instant. It helps me connect me with not just great opportunities, but like-minded peers of the craft all over the world.
The first time I was featured on MODERN’s Insta: I don’t remember when Modern Salon first featured me or what it was, but I do remember it was back when Instagram was fairly new. I was quite surprised by it and very excited. I’m pretty sure it was some form of long layered cut/style, because back then it was what I was known for because of my celebrity work.
