Tell me about yourself and how long have you been in the hair industry?
I am an international hair artist and I have been sharing my passion for 12 years so far! Between hair competitions, New York Fashion Week, giving classes, hair editorial photoshoots and doing hair for clients in different countries and taking master hair classes around the world, I am always making sure to evolve and be the best I can be.
How have you built up your following on social media?
My marketing team helps out a lot to make sure I choose the right photos and content. Also, by giving hair classes in different countries and doing celebrities’ hair have helped grow my social media exposure.
What has social media done for you and your career?
Social media helped me put my past and current awards and accomplishments on an international platform. It helped to grow my name at a much faster speed. But aside from the beautiful content I have to post, my work and reputation have to follow to keep my standard high and my name growing.
What tips do you have for creating and posting content on social media?
Every angle matters! From the lighting, to the background, to the time you post and content you write. Don’t neglect little details, they are the ones that make the difference!
What do you look for when partnering with brands?
Team work and respect; we grow together! I have a lot to offer from my side and I want a brand that values what I bring to the table and wants to build a long-term future together on a local and international platform!
Where would you be (or how would your career be different) without social media?
When I started in the industry, there was no social media, it was only word of mouth, magazines and radio. I had the privilege to experience both and I would still make sure no matter how, to keep putting in all the hard work I do to get to the same finish line!
