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.
