How it felt to be recognized in public for the first time:

I was shocked, got a little awkward- but was so honored!

Best way to build a clientele from social media:

Post all of your work. Show transformations and before & afters. Stay up to date on the latest trends. Strategically Hashtag each post. (I always make sure to hashtag #chicagosalon, #chicagohairstylist, #beautyapp, and #bridalhair)

Favorite app for pics/editing/collage:

I was just introduced to PS Express & I am obsessed! (they might possibly have better filters than instagram).
