“This client found me on Instagram through another stylist friend of hers,” says Montana Schmidt (@paintslikeschmidt) of Kevin and Co, Danville, IL. “She came all the way from Seattle, so of course it’s exciting. I love meeting people from all over.” It had been 9 months since Schmidt last saw this client. “Our original plan was to just bring her blonde back up and to go brighter. As you can see we ended up with something a bit more fun!”
