Who Does Your Hair?

Patrick McIvor, Matrix Artistic Director and owner of Patrick McIvor Color Studio in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, is the king of Social Media. He has used all forms of Facebook, Four Square and Twitter and more to increase his visibility and increase business.

"The best form of advertising in the salon industry is our own work," he told me.
