What can we say...we love us some Larisa.  We've watched her progress for the past few years, from solo artist, to brand ambassador, to social phenom to boss lady salon owner. And through every phase and stage, hair and beauty are at the center of all she does.

Larisa Love Salon, Studio City, California

Specialty: Blending, balayage and intensity times.

Followers: 543k

Most viral post: I did a chart of eight different hues allowing people to see the difference between each stage and it went viral on Instagram and Pinterest.

Favorite apps: Splice, for an easy way to create videos. Snapseed is great to filter the background.

Favorite hashtags: #HairByLarisaLove #LicensedToCreate #HairJoi

I follow: @jacobhjkan @phildoeshair @thewisehatter @Yvynails

Pro tips: Be sure to always have consistent content with good quality and no filters. Natural lighting is always best & post only your best work. Show a full video of the before, process of what you are doing to correct it and then the after. Showing a before and after has a huge impact.

Hidden talent: I swear I was a florist in another life time. I love purchasing a few different bundles of flowers and I create a few bouquets of flowers for my salon every Tuesday morning.

How social media changed my life: Social media has changed my life immensely. It allowed me to showcase my work to the world with a click of a button. Because of social media I made amazing friends, connected with many brands and have built an amazing clientele.

The first time I was featured on MODERN’s Insta: Oh my goodness, I don’t think I can even remember that far back. I think it was about four years ago and MODERN posted a photo of my hair chart that went viral on Pinterest and Instagram.

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.

Valsamis used GL Tapes from Great Lengths to give this braid depth and thickness.
