Director of Everything and Sometimes Stylist
With more than 23 years in, Angie has been around the block of hairdressing. Starting in 1997, she began in a mall salon (also as a cutting educator) for seven years, then took her business to her home for a few more. The opportunity for the current space came out of nowhere and here we are nearly thirteen years later.
While Angie isn't behind the chair as much as she would like, there is plenty to keep her busy. With a grade school aged son, a home to care for, a business to grow and team members to coach, there isn't much time left to do hair!
She enjoys gardening, spending time with her son and family, making plans for the salon (can you say workaholic?!), crafting, decor, house music and listening to audio books.
