Amanda Jean Kimball (@amandajeank), owner of Twisted Scizzors, Cary, NC, is a Sexy Hair Platform Artist, master colorist, precision cutter, updo artist and barber! Her page is colorful and fun, as she is best known for trendy and classic upstyling.
Crafting beautiful, multitonal color creations seems to be a staple in Diana Giannini's (@lzhouseofhair) creative bag of tricks. Based in the Chicago suburbs, the dimensions this colorist and updo-pro is able to create give rich, full results and continue to impress MODERN editors.
The stunning, intricate styles of Galyna Poczciwinski (@ufirami) on her signature black background have captured the attention of everyone from MODERN editors to Ulta Beauty. The braiding and upstyling specialist is part of the Ulta Beauty Design Team, and can frequently be seen commenting words of praise on the works of others.
Krystle Waivio (@krystlewaiviohair) first caught MODERN editors’ attention when she won the Wedding Party Wednesday contest on Instagram with a beautiful fishtail braid upstyle in September 2016. That same style also got her into the top 10 semifinalists of the 2017 edition of the Braids & Brides styling competition. The bridal specialist’s romantic styles are, simply put, positively lovely!
Before Saretta Bowerman (@hairbysaretta) won the 2017 edition of Braids and Brides, MODERN editors knew her for her color expertise on Instagram. But, of course, it didn’t take long to discover she is also a master of braided styles and updos. The Florida-based stylist uses extensions, hair extensions and editorial-like sets to create perfect, playful looks.
