We owe a lot to the stylists in our life, and also those we come across by way of social media. Not only do they keep our strands in tip-top shape, but they even take on the role of confidant and/or friend. Given how much stylists support us through the thick and thin of life, we wanted to return the favor. Stylist Spotlight highlights hairstylists, colorists, extensionists, and more who have made quite an impact in our lives and on our social media feeds.

We don’t quite remember when Mood Salon hairstylist Becca Romine popped up on our Instagram feed, but we’re so glad she did. As lovers of the lived-in look, we found ourselves mesmerized by Romine’s masterful way of blending low-maintenance with high-impact. Her hues are bold and vibrant, yet appear ever-so-natural to the untrained eye—and that’s something we love to see. With Romine’s certification in hand-tied extensions, she seamlessly adds length and volume to every hairstyle she creates.
Apart from her skills as a lived-in colorist and extensionist, we appreciate her uplifting Instagram posts and relatable sense of humor showcased in her IG Reels. Should you find yourself in Woodstock, Georgia, be sure to visit the Mood Salon and ask for Romine—but first, let’s get acquainted with the stylist.
