✨Two faced✨ @hairbykellymoses thank you for that caption idea! Do you recognize this hair?? It’s my water reflection hair I did a while back. I just added the person on top using @manicpanicnyc black direct dye. So I have a few hairs lying around I want to re-invent which is always a fun time because it’s already half done! So it doesn’t take me as long. And I can practice new ideas on them as well....have a great weekend you guys!! And thank you so very much for all of your amazing love and support always. ❤️ It’s literally changed my life 🙏🏼🥰🥰😘😘 #modernsalon #creativecolor #manicpanic #manicpanicpro #behindthechair #theunicorntribe

Many faces.... I created this using all @manicpanicnyc hair color! 😅 I wanted to give this hair some glitchy/ double exposure type vibes. It was My first attempt at that type of illusion...and it was hard to do on hair! But I definitely want to do more now! It was so fun. Inspired by @mimles and her cool illusion makeup looks! Swipe to see some footage😃

The calm before the storm... How many of you caught my very first live from the other day where I was working on this?? I used all Demi permanent color to create this! The new @matrix color sync watercolors in silver grey and then an overlay of the sheer bronze! I have been wanting to create interesting designs and contrast with toners and I’m really happy with my first attempt at that! I think it’s a great base to add some vivids to this color story later on! So...to be continued!.....😃😃😃😃 #unicorntribe #matrix #matrixcolor #modernsalon #behindthechair #elevatehair #infringemagazine

Well well well....The time has come my friends!! It’s voting week for @behindthechair_com @oneshothairawards !!! I would truly appreciate you taking the time from your busy days to vote!!! Link is in my bio to the voting page!!! To be nominated in this category AND for this @banksy hair is very special to me. When I did this hair I just knew right away it was special. I painted this free hand and I honestly couldn’t believe I did this. I did not think that I was even capable of doing this! It’s the hair that really put me on the map! And the love I received for this was, I must say, it was INCREDIBLY overwhelming at the time! I was most definitely not use to that kind of recognition, love, and support! And even tho it seems lately like everything is happening so fast, the journey it took for me to get here...in this moment, it was a very long journey!! I have been a licensed professional for 18yrs. I have taken breaks from the salon, had babies, started from scratch at a new salon, in a new town, one too many times! And sometimes I thought I was done doing hair. But I always came back to it. With a new outlook and a new perception and new goals. This profession, It just brings me so much joy. I’m literally obsessed with it. I think we all are! Thank you guys so much for all the love and support you show me. Finding like minded people with a passion for the same exact thing as you is one of the greatest feelings in the world. ❤️❤️❤️

Ok so here we go!! Oh man sooo many emotions this week! Sooo many things to be grateful for and I feel like it’s just all hitting me at the exact same time. I don’t even know what to say because it’s all so surreal to me still. If you had told me 18yrs ago when I got my license that this would be MY LIFE I probably would have literally died. I still don’t get how this is my life right now??? BUT I must say, it has truly made me realize how close those dreams really are! Work hard and practice like crazy and then practice some more because your dreams can truly become your reality! Thank you @modernsalon !!! @alisonalhamed @jamie_newms @modernmaggie1 for EVERYTHING you have done for me!! @alisonalhamed I will be forever grateful to you for the rest of my life!🙏🏼😘😘😘 @updoguru I am soooo lucky to have had you as my partner on this and to build a friendship with you that will last a lifetime! 🥰🥰 You kept me going at times I just wanted to die...lol and I appreciate you so much for that!! Thank you @ultabeaty pro team! For all of the tips and great advice! Huge thank you to our model @themechanicalsheep (My twin sis!!)

✨Vivids invading your natural space... Hey! So how many of you have clients looking to add fun color to their hair but can’t because of a job... or maybe it’s not something they necessarily want everyday but on a fun night out? And are you wanting to explore and practice more with wigs and extensions?? Learn some new color techniques, unique placement and gain some helpful tips and tricks?! And better yet...sell your pieces as an added service to those clients wanting more??!! I feel like this is a win win for everyone! It’s the way of the future and the demand for this growing more and more every. single. day. Soooo.... with that being said... I have some big news coming soon!!! 😃

Futuristic hair color This is my first attempt at painting a face on hair using all @manicpanicnyc haircolor! I have been wanting to try this for a while now but I just didn’t feel I was ready. After coming across @jaghedcouture and his amazing face painting on hair I finally decided to go ahead and give it a try! Super stoked about the results and can’t wait to do more in the....future! 😃

So...I have been wanting to bring this one back into the rotation and what better time then now to let you all know I was nominated in the @oneshothairawards wig category! Thank you so much @marybehindthechair and the entire @behindthechair_com team!! To be nominated is incredible and most definitely still unreal. And the ironic part of it all is, to be nominated with this @banksy fan girl of a moment hair that I did! Funny story, I actually entered this hair and then deleted that entry because I didn’t think it would be recognized as a proper hair style...style? Ya know?? But then I decided to re enter it because I thought about it some more. I am not really about what is “proper” and what does that even mean anymore? I totally freehanded this using both hair color and body paint and it was a really proud moment for me. And even the entire idea behind this piece was to showcase creative color in an unconventional sort of way, breaking the mold and not fitting into a box of any one particular style or technique. Art is art and hair is art and lets bridge the gap. So, just goes to show you.. how true that really is! And just how accepting all of you have been towards me and the way that I do hair! So, my friends...thank you for that! And I will see you in DC! #spreadlove

✨✨TRIPPY✨✨ Just want to say thank you to everyone that followed along in my stories the other day when I was creating this! It was inspired by a water bottle I found in the airport with @zach.lieberman ‘s artwork on it! I totally forgot to add that photo here, so I will add it to my next post! It took a really long time lol and all of your kind words really kept me pumped to finish it! This is all @manicpanicpro with an overlay of @manicpanicnyc color. I’m really proud of this one 🥰 I freehanded this and didn’t quite have an exact plan but I knew Ok this is gonna be really cool or really terrible 🤣 it reminds me a lot of the way I use to draw when I was younger. And most definitely has some @roxiejanehunt vibes in there too! Anyways I hope you guys like it! The pressure was really on with all of you watching!! 😅 #modernsalon #manicpanic #manicpanicpro

Another look at this one! How many of you have seen the spider man movie? It’s on Netflix right now. It’s the “into the spider verse” movie. Well, I’m kinda obsessed with it! And the graphics in it got me so inspired! I want to add more to this one now like a giant fish net type color in black over the top. Sooo stay tuned for that! And some other spider man inspired looks. Maybe a spider man hair mask??? Also, if you happened to watch my stories from the other day... thank you for all the love on that!! I haven’t had the time yet to take pics of it. But I plan on doing that tonight! 😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃😃 Hair color- @manicpanicpro

Another look at this one! Funny story.. kinda not really funny but anyways... this was actually suppose to be the top piece to the blue one I just recently did. I wanted this pattern to lay over top of the other one. But, this hair was kinda too short to really pull off that look and also when I mixed the black for this Piece, I put too much green into it and when I washed and dried it you could see a tinge of green. I probably still could have overlayed the blues and more then likely you would not have even noticed but, I decided to just go with it and make this one with green and yellow and on its own it ended up looking more reptile “ish”. So in the end, even tho it wasn’t suppose to work out this way, I really do love it. And every time I face a “mistake” in the process of what I am creating I try to just go with it and make it work. And in the end I am usually happy with the final result. And it always feels as though that’s what was meant to happen all along. what I have learned is...try not to get frustrated when you hit a road block. See it as an opportunity to make something even better. Sometimes it’s good to let go of the control or of the plan you initially envisioned and live in the present moment and sometimes re thinking your ideas is necessary and is an important part of the creative process and overall success of the final outcome.....

Can you see me??? Okayyyy if you saw the translucent eye weft on my page from last week this may make more sense to you! When I color these I sew them to a wig cap but by accident one day I had one on my face to see where I wanted to sew it and I loved how it looked! I’m sure I’m not the first to do this, in fact I know I have seen some cool af translucent hair cascading over the face before! But I want to make them look like masks!! I think maybe I should do a whole series for Halloween!!! Hmmmmm🤔

I guess you can call this one my version of “bubble gum” pink! - - So I came back from NYC @modernsalon artist connective event with even more inspiration and determination then I had before. I want to work even harder, and really push myself to perfect all of my techniques. I want to continue to learn and try new things. I want to fail miserably..and grow drastically. Im not as afraid anymore to really put myself out there! And do more in the industry. It use to really intimidate me before and I have turned down a lot of really amazing opportunities. But not anymore! Honestly when I started this journey through creating art with hair and sharing it with the entire Instagram world... all I knew was that I needed an outlet. I was itching like crazy to be more creative. And I wanted to create and have fun and just see it as my passionate “hobby” for a while and figure the rest out along the way. Well... the more I learn and grow the more confident and passionate I became and it makes me feel really confident and ready to take on more. I want to make creating hair in this way my career and work alongside other likeminded passionate people and creative amazing hair all day everyday for ads, campaigns, photoshoots, hair shows, you name it! I want to be apart of it all and meet even more amazing and talented artists. I am so incredibly head over heals in love with my craft. And that passion is what truly fuels my fire. So here’s to a future in making all of my wildest dreams come true. Because I honestly believe that if you can dream it... and you work really hard... you can make that dream come true 🔥 Hair color- @manicpanicpro Styling tools- @nickstenson @curiousbrushes

Thank you for being so humble and down to earth and easy to talk to!! When I was first approached to be apart of this event I honestly felt I wasn’t ready and I wasn’t prepared to be in a room with such talent and next level professionalism. But at the same time I didn’t want to pass up this opportunity! Thank you @themechanicalsheep for being the best twin sister ever and agreeing to be me and @updoguru ’s model and thank you for reminding me that when doors open you have to walk through them whether you feel ready or not because that door opened for a reason.
