2017 MODERN SALON 100: John Mosley @popular_nobody

Anne Moratto | August 2, 2017 | 10:30 AM

John Mosley's social handle, @popular_nobody, gives a good indication of who this artist and educator is, even before meeting him.  He is humble, grateful, and eager to share his good fortune and his talents. We have enjoyed watching him take his gifts and give them freely.  Happy to include John among our top 100 for 2017. 

Name: John Jermaine Mosley


Hometown: Long Beach/Dallas

 I'm best known for: Men's Grooming/Education

 Age: 35

 Most viral post: It wasn't one particular post that put me on the map but consistent posting that has made the difference.

Favorite app: Instagram

Favorite hashtag: #popularnobody

 Who I'm following: @hanzonation @andis @jataifeather @paulmitchellus @nfl, @modernsalon @americansalon @cosomprofbeauty @hairartproducts @team_popular_nobody

 My favorite professional beauty products: Just to name a few, the products I like to use include Layrite Grooming Spray, Layrite Cement Clay, Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Grooming Pomade, Jatai Blade Glide and Awapuhi Wild Ginger Shine Spray.

 Tips to get the best results on your post: My tip would have to be post often, give your page a theme and post with purpose. Make sure your photos are clean and not a lot going on in the background.

 How did social media change my life: It has given me more exposure not just in my area but worldwide by a click of a button. I have a wide reach and by the use of hashtags I can go after a target market that I would have never been able to reach as easily. Social media has also brought me more celebrity clients and amazing opportunities.

 The first time I was featured on Modern Salon:  I was like ‘Wow, they like my work and they’re checking out my page.’ I felt like a little kid at Disneyland.
