How Social Media Has Influenced Amy’s Career

Amy emerged at the forefront of the balayage trend in 2016 and established herself as an innovator in the space. After hitting the 25-year mark in the industry working behind the chair as a salon owner, she felt her craft had become robotic. Balayage was a little-known trend and she was immediately drawn to the technique as she looked for a way to reignite her passion.  


Learning how to utilize social media for education changed her entire career. Amy turned to YouTube and Instagram for education and inspiration. She continued to learn, perfect and improve on the service and has since adopted these social media platforms to share the dos and don’ts of balayage with the hairdresser community. Since then, Amy has gained a captive audience of more than 316K Instagram followers.
