Debora Salvino (@styledby_debbe) has a quote in her Instagram bio that says “no two manes are the same.” You can see how she celebrates this in the work that she does through custom color tailored to each client. She makes her color work and clients the stars of the show, taking her photos in front of clean black or white backgrounds that truly make her images pop.

Top-performing post: A beautiful brunette and creamy blonde balayage I did on one of my favorite manes. I think it went viral because the tones complimented each other so perfectly!

Pro tip: It’s important to make your post purposeful. I find that educating both hairstylists and clients gets interest and engages people in conversation. People will notice when you put time and effort into your post!

Hidden talent: I’m really good at shaping eyebrows but hate waxing.

My audience follows me because: I’m all about supporting other stylists and lifting everyone up! I love sharing techniques and formulas. I love engaging with the hair community!

How social media changed my life: It has taken my career to the next level! I have been able to showcase what I love doing, share with other stylists and cultivate my target clientele. It has given me the confidence to start my own independent education. I have met some really amazing people and gained so much knowledge all from the power of social media!

My first @modernsalon feature: I just stared at my phone in disbelief! The photo was a perfect representation of what I love creating- beautiful, effortless hair! It is still to this day my most engaged post on Instagram.
