Most viral post: This was a hair before and after post of model Rachel Cook using The Hair Shop hair extensions. The styling was super effortless, soft, whimsical, and fresh, not glamorous or over the top. I enhanced her natural hair using clip in extensions to add length and volume. I went with my signature Babe Waves created using The Ouai products and T3 Curling wand, with a little love tap on the crown with the Tangle Teaser for light flyaways. This just gave her a little extra ‘umph.’ This post had 434,737 impressions. I can thank my models captivating beauty, great light, and my work!

Favorite apps: You have got to get VSCO and PhotoShop Fix; they can save the day by utilizing the lighting features, especially for days when the light may be too warm or too grey. They help get color balanced to get that nice pop we all love.

Favorite hashtags: #ModernSalon #hairinspo #maneaddicts

I follow: @chrisappleton @hairbyruslan @brittsully @salsalhair are some of my faves.

Pro tips: Pay attention to details and light is everything. The best light can be captured by a doorway. Try to catch a bounce so you get the extra twinkle in the eye. Make sure your hair posts are not just beautiful hair, but make sure your girls have a cute top, the choice of lips they have on, and even accessories. Every detail makes for a bomb post. I would suggest always having a lip gloss around for your clients, something nude and neutral. The lips can be distracting at times, especially with shades like coral or reds that can throw off your hair color. If you want to go that extra mile keep extra solid color tops. You don’t want to divert the attention from your work to a bad choice of blouse.

Hidden talent: Aside from being double jointed, I can whip up babe waves on set in 15 minutes!

Hidden talent: I was probably a model in a past life, because my poses are up there with Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss. No, but for real- I’m good!

How social media changed my life: Social media has played such a huge role in my career. I get personal clients as well as corporate companies reaching out to me daily requesting my services. It’s been a blessing. I am where I am today because of the reach Instagram has.

The first time I was featured on MODERN’s Insta: I totally remember! I always make sure I tag and hashtag Modern Salon, as it’s one of the best pages to look for inspiration and talent. The picture I posted was of Ali, a total blonde bombshell with babe waves. I was shook my work was up with some of the best in the business! It definitely was a memorable moment for me!

TRENDING: The French Bob

by Anne Moratto

Leave it to the French to inspire a haircut so chic, it’s truly timeless. It’s a look that never goes away and when you see it, you know it. And lately, we’ve been seeing it everywhere.
