Are you a short curly hair girl tired of the same ol' hairstyle? No worries, I got you, girl. I big chopped almost three years ago and it has been an amazing journey stepping out of my comfort zone and reinventing myself fearlessly. Like many curlies who have taken the plunge and big chopped, I had no idea how to style my hair, what products to use or how to properly care for it. So I understand your frustrations and want to remind you that this is all a part of the journey, don't give up just yet.
Hairtalk challenged MODERN SALON’s community with sharing your best, most creative work using extensions, with a goal of finding top artists with major skills to play in a second challenge. We collected thousands of entries in Hairtalk's Creative Freedom Contest and whittled it down to our top 10 finalists. Each of the finalists were sent Hairtalk extensions and were tasked with creating a second look (check out the slideshow!).

Don't get me wrong, I love rockin' my short, natural, 3b/3c curls, but I also enjoy switching up my naturally curly hair with protective styles. I mean versatility is key right? Especially since I'm growing out my pixie cut, it can be challenging finding hairstyles that work for my hair during this in-between phase and honestly wearing my hair the same way every day gets old, really fast.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
