N ot a m e m b e r ? J o i n at a s so c iate d h a i rp rofe s sio n a ls .c o m 3 How Do You Measure Success? Insta followers—is this the new measure of success? A nd if so, how do you strike the right balance between artistry, professional aspirations, and clients while logging hours creating and promoting your brand on social media? AHP Indie Stylist magazine talks to Lucie Doughty, this issue's featured hairstylist, who believes "a lot of success today relies on how many followers you have." She also talks about creative inspiration, her work as multimedia director for Paul Mitchell, and how to move forward post-COV ID. Read her story on page 24. Though the definition of success is different for everyone, you always know when you see it. If you love hairstyling history, check out this beautiful new book that screams "Baby, I'm in the big time now": Kenneth: Shear Elegance by Giuseppe Longo tells the story of Kenneth Battelle (1927–2013). K nown simply as "Kenneth" and considered the world's first celebrity hairdresser, Battelle led the trends through his styling of muses—Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy, and many others. The book is chock- full of throwback inspirations and delightful photographs that ooze glamour and sophistication, taking you back to a time long before hairstylists were YouTube stars and Instagram mavens sharing their hairstyling expertise to millions of women at the click of a button. As we approach the end of this unprecedented year and look forward to the beginning of a new one, I encourage you to define what your personal success looks like. You've come a long way, baby! Keep evolving. TRACY DONLEY Executive Director Associated Hair Professionals @tracy.donley from the ahp executive director
