ABOUT : ALLYSON’S WORK
What would you like people to know about your work? My mission is to help people tap into their hair’s true potential. I work with my clients to create the style desired by taking into account hair texture, facial features, and lifestyle.
Why did you want to be a hair stylist? I had an epiphany halfway through college. I kept putting off homework to do hair so I enrolled in cosmetology school. I am an artist and hair is my medium!
Where did you go to school? Mr. Leon’s School of Hair Design-Moscow, Idaho
What are your specialties? I would have to say precision men’s haircuts, blondes (I spent 5 years being platinum myself), dimensional redheads, haircuts that play up natural texture, and pinup hair.
What do you love most about being a stylist? I love making people look good almost as much as I love teaching them about their hair. The more you know about your hair, the fewer bad hair days you will have.
What inspires you / What influences your style? Inspiration comes from my love of learning. I go to hair classes frequently to keep my mind fresh with new ideas. My style is influenced by the seasons, the music scene, & pinup culture.
Favorite hair style? Favorite Hair Products? My favorite hair reflects the personality of the person wearing it. I love Moroccanoil products, especially the curl cream. My personal favorite product has to be label.m hairspray.
