One of the best things about Aoife Seitz is her warm and caring personality. On her own page, Seitz frequently posts beautiful blonde transformations and balayaged perfection, but our editors have also noticed Seitz frequently commenting and interacting with the work of others on MODERN's page. Seitz's ability to create stunning work and recognize the skills of others through uplifting messages show true professionalism! She is one to be watched and admired.

How social media changed my life: I started working in the beauty industry 8 years ago. It took me years to build a clientele. About two years ago, I started my business page on Instagram. Before social media, I couldn’t attract the clientele I was looking for. Don of @fiidnt taught me how to promote my business to the type of clientele that I wanted in my chair. Thanks to social media, I now have a full book with a wait list. Social media has also connected me with many artists all around the world and provides free educational tools.
The first time I was featured on MODERN’s Insta: February 2018. I was already in bed when I got the notification, and then I could not sleep for the rest of the night. I even woke up my husband to tell him! I sent the photo to all my co-workers and shared it on my Instagram page. The look was a sandy balayage, which is what I specialize in. @ModernSalon posting my picture was one of the best days in my career.
