REV, Houston, Texas
Specialty: major transformations and extension makeovers
Most viral post: My curly hair extension transformation! I think it stood out because you don’t normally see curly hair extensions that actually match curl pattern.
Favorite app: iMovie
Favorite hashtags: #revhair #houstonstylist #modernsalon
Pro tips: If the lighting isn’t right I won’t take photos. My favorite lighting is indirect sunlight. Overcast lighting is also one of my favorites.
Hidden talent: I was a professional ballet dancer!
How social media changed my life: I’ve built my entire clientele from social media. I went from handing out business cards with “free blowdry” written on them to get clients 8 years ago to being fully booked today with my digital portfolio on Instagram.
The first time I was featured on MODERN’s Insta: I wasn’t the first time @modernsalon featured me but it’s the one that stands out the most: I took a new client with shorter, brassy blonde with 2 inches of level 4/5 regrowth to an ash white rooted blonde and added 20inch Bellami tape-in extensions. MODERN actually called me King of the Transformation: That gave me chills.
