Allison Kingsbury

Since high school I knew I had a passion for hairstyling. 
I graduated from Douglas J Aveda Institute in 2010, and quickly
became an assistant under a senior stylist for a one year intensive
program. Now going on 10 years, my passion is still as strong as it has
ever been. I am dedicated to continuing my education within the industry, as itis always evolving! I love creating soft blondes, rich brunettes, and vibrant red heads using different techniques. From your traditional highlight, balayage, or custom color placement, I strive to fit the need of each individual client! My clients trust my opinion, and I will always be honest on what will work best for you and your lifestyle.

I LOVE this salon! Sheri is my go to girl for hair! She is educated and talented in cuts and chemical processing. The salon is wonderful, because each station is separated (love that). The shampoo chair cradles your head so you don’t feel as if your head is strained backward. There are comfortable areas to wait and to process. They also offer beverages and light snacks. The salon decor is rustic, yet warm and appealing to both men and women. Nicely designed!
