Twice each year, MODERN SALON hosts our ARTIST SESSION photoshoot workshop in New York City. Along with a team of on-set experts, MODERN’s Beauty and Fashion Director Maggie Mulhern educates salon professionals on the ins and outs of how to conduct an editorial photoshoot, maximize those photographs and get published.
To celebrate the talent within MODERN’s Artist Connective family of stylists, we invited 16 artists to join us for a twist on the traditional workshop with two days of inspiration, education and creative collaboration showing off their signature techniques at our Artist Session: Influencer Series.
Hosted at the stunning Eva Scrivo Salon in the flatiron district of New York City, the salon was full of support and collaborative love. Eight influential colorists were paired with eight influential stylists to create a cover-worthy look.
On day one, guest speakers demonstrated how they expand their influence and strengthen their communities using their respective platforms. Among others, Mark Bustos (@markbustos) shared his philosophy of “be awesome to somebody,” and salon owner and brand ambassador Jon Reyman (@jonreymanhair) shared how to get on a Fashion Week team and connect with pro beauty brands.
On day two, MODERN’s photoshoot team of experts, including award-winning photographer Roberto Ligresti and NAHA Makeup Artist of the Year David Maderich, united to bring each team’s vision to life and to show how their work can transcend Instagram.
