Artist Connective member Emily Buffi (@buffithehairslayer) is stopping thumbs left and right with her cool, cohesive Instagram aesthetic that pays homage to the '90s. She shares the top three tools she uses to create her signature vibe on her feed and in her stories.

No need to do a double-take. YES I have posted this style before. However, this is a different angle. 🙃 ▾ I often get asked for more views of the same look. This hair was probably the most requested + it made me think... ▾ Why post just one photo of the hard work you put into something you love so much?? I struggle with choosing the PERFECT PHOTO often. Knowing I can post more than one gives me a bit more creative freedom. 👽⚡️ ▾ I’ll keep them random so my overall style won’t change but if you see something you like just make sure to #staytuned. ▾ @uniwigs (code : “buffi” for 20% off) ▾ ▾ ▾ ▾ ▾ ▾ ▾ #photopickingproblems #foreverafishtaillover #itsfestivalseasonsomewhere ##mermaidhair #modernsalon #artistconnective #kenra #kreate #randco #uniwigs #cosmoprofbeauty #licensedtocreate #saloncentric #ittakesapro #behindthechair #americansalon #hairdostylist #2018contest #hairoftheday #crueltyfree #freelancehairstylist #deardiary #youthinkyouknowbutyouhavenoidea #RI #earth #thankyouuniverse #buffithehairslayer
