I'd like to give a shout out to one of my best pals at work, Ally McMahan. Not only does she make work extra fun, she gives great advice and can always make you laugh. Clients love her calming nature and easy going attitude. I had Ally write a little about herself so you'll understand why I love her so much.
"Hello, I'm Ally McMahan.
I grew up in Trinity, North Carolina, a small country town 25 minutes south of Greensboro. I have a very small family that I am extremely close with. My mother is in Greensboro and my father is in Boston. Growing up I was always really into hair and makeup. I can remember cutting my Barbie's hair and eventually cutting my friends' hair in middle school on the back porch with kitchen scissors. I turned my hair bright orange in high school and was so amazed and inspired when my stylist turned the orange mess into something beautiful. It really made me realize how big of a difference your hair can make in the way you feel about yourself.
I graduated Trinity High School in 2010 and attended ECU for 2.5 years until I dropped out after talking to a stylist in Greenville about cosmetology school. Fun fact: I was voted life of the party in high school.
I am fearless in my work and want to inspire my clients to speak with their hair. Watching other masterful stylists inspires me to be a better stylist and work hard and think creatively to achieve better results. I like to paint and write when I'm not outside kicking it with Mother Nature."
She's your new favorite stylist and your newest friend. She's the kind of person you just want to relax and share a beer with. Below are photos of some of her work. Make sure to follow her on Instagram!
