how alison keeps her edge

Alison maintains her career by attending Davines education classes and Allilon workshops.

why?

Since the age of 14, Alison knew she wanted to be an artist of hair! Her passion for hair is what gives her so much pleasure and job satisfaction. “To be able to create everyday and change people’s lives is a gift”. She loves the rapport she has with her guests. The challenge to put faith back into guests that have had bad experiences, and to show she really cares from the consultation to the finished result is why she does it. Simply put, Alison loves what she does.

what makes alison exceptional

Alison’s willingness and thirst to continuously educate herself in the industry, and trends, is what makes her exceptional. Her passion for getting it right with meticulous detail in everything she does makes her unique. She has the ability to listen, advise, and be open to feedback. The connection Alison has with her clients is second to none. Over the past 9 years, Alison’s guests have been confident that when she’s behind the chair they’ll receive nothing less than 100%. This commitment to excellence shows in her schedule. Alison is continuously booked for 6 months in advance.
