Hello my name is Allie I was born in austin, Texas and my passion lies in the creative arts. I view hair as another medium or a moving growing canvas to express the visions of myself and my clients. I enjoy cutting and color to create a personalized effortless style!
My name is Alyss (pronounced uh-lease). I have lived in the Austin area for over 20+ yrs and I have been doing hair for almost 9 years, all of which has been spent at The Salon. I became a stylist after going to college & realizing I needed a more creative & social career. I loved the way coming to the salon made me feel, what a positive influence my stylist had on me, & I love that I can now give that to my clients. In recent years I have started to get involved with the continued education of our apprentices’, which has brought my career full circle given that I started at The Salon as an apprentice myself. “Choose a job you love, & you will never work a day in your life.” -Confucius
