From breath-taking bridal looks to step-by-step tutorials, our team at MODERN has fallen in love with Alisha Jared's page and work. Her intricate styles are coupled with cute and clever techniques that help audiences connect to both her designs as an artist but also her personality, making Jared a must-watch influencer.
Freelance stylist, Southern California
Most viral post: A video of me doing a textured French twist. I got so much hate because it was “different” than what Instagram was used to seeing at the time but all the buzz caused it to be my most viewed post ever and I’m thankful because it was my first taste of handling criticism!
Favorite apps: Planoly to help me plan the look of my grid. Aviary to edit blemishes, crop photos. iMovie to make and edit tutorials.
Favorite hashtags: #hairgoals #instabride #hairoftheday
Pro tips: Indirect natural light, clean background solid, light color, and on-trend styles are the key to successful posts.
Hidden talent (beauty-related): I’m a makeup artist, but most people just think I only do hair.
Hidden talent: I am the most freakishly organized person you’ll ever meet.
How social media changed my life: Instagram has always been a means to promote my business. After a few life changes and a move, I began posting on Instagram as nothing more than a creative outlet and it changed my life and business dramatically.
The first time I was featured on MODERN’s Insta: I posted a before and after color correction on a platinum client, not thinking much of it, and it made waves! That one post led me to share lots of color formulas and step by steps for MODERN’s website!
