We met Amy Chen (@amyrunswithscissors) while we were covering a class in Los Angeles and have been following her ever since. Chen specializes in both color and cutting, creating a unique look tailored to each client that sits in her chair.
Union Salon Pasadena, California
Specialty: Classic and creative cuts and color
Top-performing post: January 27, 2019 reached lots of audiences due to a @modernsalon repost.
Favorite apps: Snapseed for background blur, Meitu for perfecting facial flaws, Splice for video editing.
I follow: @Irapopesage, @pitta_kkm, @zihwa_tattooer, @kimberlymargarita_, @quaynaildit
Pro tip: Taking clear shot of the hair; focus on hair styling.
Hidden talent: I have an eye for the individuality of each client.
My audience follows me because: I think it’s fun to see different artists work, so hopefully mine inspires people along the way.
How social media changed my life: It enables me to stay current with trend and constantly learning without taking time off of work and seeing inspirational work around the world without leaving the salon/house.
My first @modernsalon feature: It is also my most engaged post—subtle highlights I did for a client after her first visit, which was more than six months before.
