You might notice that many of the 2017 MODERN SALON 100 list Heidi Marie (Garrett) Villa (@heidimariegarrett) as a stylist they follow for inspiration, and we can't say that we blame them! The SoCal stylist has perfect hair and makeup for brides and bridesmaids, and her styling-focused but also business-savvy classes around the country are not to be missed.

Pro tip: Make sure your photo is clean and without distractions in the background. I find that when I take the time to write a meaningful caption I get better engagement as well.
How social media changed my life: How HASN'T it changed my life?! So many of my clients find me through Instagram. I even followed my husband on Instagram before I met him in person (I'm not a creep, I swear!).
The first time I was featured on MODERN SALON: In 2014 I did a hair tutorial every Tuesday for the entire year (ya know, in terrible bathroom lighting with my iPhone4). THAT's what put me on the map.
