Good vibes only on Tyler Plemmons feed. And lots of good hair. His clients leave with a 'model off duty' look--haircolor that looks haute and relaxed, at the same time.
Tyler’s Art Studio, Asheville, NC
Specialty: Sunkissed balayage, vibrant colors and cool blondes
Most viral post: My most viral post was probably my Vivid Mermaid Hair, a dark blue melting to lime green. It was everywhere on the internet! I was shocked, but felt honored being recognized.
Favorite apps: My favorite Apps are Spice (how I make my hair videos), Phonto (how I put my watermark on my photos) and Boomerang.
Favorite hashtags: Definitely #modern salon #hair #balayage
Pro tips: My advice would have to be to take the picture outside in natural lighting. I do not agree with using filters on my pictures because it gives an unrealistic view of the colors. Also I feel it is important to take a multitude of pictures from different angles and various positions.
Hidden talent: Giving clients scalp massages at the shampoo bowl. Sometimes coloring can be a long time-consuming process, so it is nice to give their head a little break.
Hidden talent: Photography. I have always been really passionate about capturing that perfect image.
How social media changed my life: First and foremost, it has helped me grow my business and client base more than I ever could have imagined. I have not used any form of paid advertising in the past, just word of mouth and social media. My favorite social media platforms are Instagram and Facebook because they help showcase my work. Also, social media has helped me connect with other stylists all over the world. It really help give me inspiration for new looks and styles.
The first time I was featured on MODERN’s Insta: I vividly recall the first time I was featured on MODERN SALON’s Instagram. I created a beautiful silver shadow root that faded into a platinum blonde. It was featured last December and I was incredibly honored.
