I follow: My wife because I’m obsessed with her. I follow anyone that has a positive, authentic vibe. Also @goatsofanarchy. I have a thing with goats.

Pro tip: Authentic is the new black. Stand behind your posts and be proud. The rest will fall in place.

Favorite product: Pulp Riot

How social media changed my life: Social media has skyrocketed my career, and I’m humbled by how quickly.

The first time I was featured on MODERN SALON: I did a dry balayage technique, and that was the beginning of the attention I would get from my work. Thank you, MODERN!

We love repping the whole beauty community, but we feel a certain obligation to make sure our Midwestern neighbors get their well-deserved limelight. After a friend visited this MODERN SALON 100's honoree's salon in St. Louis, we found Kristina Cheeseman on Instagram and were blown away--literally. Cheeseman showcases many of her color creations in wind-blown stills, and we'll never stop obsessing over them.
