2017 MODERN SALON 100: Tiffany Massey (@tiffanymhair)
Katie Manselle will represent North America in the Color Vision category at the Wella Professionals International Trend Vision Awards in London on October 14. It's her second time to the global finals. We ask: what does it take to be a winner?
These artists are making a rainbow connection with the salon world.
“The moment I decided I wanted to go to beauty school, New York Fashion Week was my biggest goal,” said Laura Rocha, 2017 Sebastian Professional’s What’s Next Awards winner. This weekend, with the help of Wella's Hairdressers at Heart and Sebastian Professional’s What’s Next Awards, she’s making it happen.
We love following Danielle Hess' @brushedtoblonde Instagram page because she posts such stunning, glossy, healthy blonde hair. Bonus? She also includes processing photos! See why else she earned a spot on our 2017 MODERN SALON 100.
As a young hairdresser, Kevin Ryan would sometimes do over 20 men’s haircuts in a day.
Meet Daniel Mason-Jones, platform artist, educator, salon owner (and all around great guy), who courageously turned his life around.
At 21 years old, Taylor Lamb (@taylor_lamb_hair) has already built an army of 30.6k followers on Instagram who are double-tapping her post after post of beautifully braided blondes. MODERN SALON hasn't been immune to Lamb's striking styles; her work has made her a finalist for our 2017 Balayage & Boho competition.
It's easy to see why Aveda Artist Sarah Naslund (@mybighairday) is an updo educator. From braids to buns to twists and everything in between, her Instagram page is filled with ooh-and-ahh-worthy work.
We'd spotted Saretta Bowerman's (@hairbysaretta) color expertise on Instagram long before we found out she's also a master of braided styles and updos.The Florida-based stylist was voted by MODERN SALON editors, MODERN SALON Artist Collective judges and MODERN SALON readers as the winner of our 2017 Braids & Brides competition for her beautiful braided upstyle.
Pinterest-happy brides and stylists alike need to put Katie D'Souza (@bridalhaircouturebykatie) on their shortlist of special-occasion stylists to follow. The Canadian stylist has mastered a range of beautiful styles from tousled and half-up to classic chignons and intricate updos.
It will never not be exciting to see someone achieve massive, well-deserved success, especially when it's someone so genuine, creative, humble and kind. Ashley Crowe, better known as her online persona @astrowifey, has created crazy-cool claws for the likes of Lady Gaga, Zoe Kravitz, Lily Allen, along with her local Chicago-based clientele.
Jordan Heath Heidenwith is a color guru based in our own backyard of downtown Chicago. If you scroll through his feed, you'll see his keys for a successful photo are natural lighting, an urban-chic brick wall of a Chicago alley, and beautiful models. Really! Heidenwith consistently works with Ford Modeling Agency in Chicago for all model's hair services.
Michigan-based blonding expert Catherine Long is a balayage QUEEN. We've been long-time followers of her for her icy, beautiful color work and gorgeous photos of her work. See why else we named her a 2017 MODERN SALON 100.
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.
