Social media is an amazing way to link up online. We use these platforms to connect with family, friends, brands, and people who inspire us. It’s also a way that we can express ourselves and our personalities in a more creative and fun way.
Here are Elevate Salon Institute (ESI) Chubbuck’s top five picks for local influencers in Idaho and why we think you should check their profiles out and follow them.
Elsa is all about documenting her adventures while sharing her style along the way. She strives to live life full of optimism. Although she’s based in Idaho, she and her husband love exploring. They even have a cute airstream, named Primrose, that’s fixed up to travel around in and sightsee. They’ve been all over the western United States, other places to the east, and overseas to destinations like France and Canada. Can you say goals?
Wherever Elsa is, she’ll find the perfect spot to take a photo. A huge aspect of marketing in the beauty world is being able to take high-quality photos. While you don’t need an expensive camera, you do need some creativity. Stand out and have fun with your content on Instagram! Elsa is the perfect example of how to capture fun photos and can give you examples of some fun photoshoots you could do with clients!
If you’re needing some boho, western, and 70s vibes, look no further because Alysa Mae is your girl. She’s all about combining retro clothes with a western hat and boots. Alysa captures movement so beautifully in her content with tons of hair, skirt, dress and jacket flips. She even has her own hashtag – #moveitlikemae – for her followers to show their ‘takes’ on her content.
Not only does Alysa love and has a knack for creating content for her Instagram, but she also has a photography business and is starting a vintage shop that perfectly fits her vibes and what she stands for.
