ON THE RECORD
“I needed a last-minute style change for a photoshoot. With nothing coming to mind, I asked Allison to have fun with it and I've never had a cut suit me so well."
MUSICIAN + PRODUCER
I've been thriving as a licensed hair stylist for over ten years. While Toronto is my hometown, I hold a special place in my heart for the West Coast, especially California, where I frequently travel to refine my skills.
Here in Toronto, I've received training with esteemed brands like L'Oréal and Vidal Sassoon and have showcased my expertise in various hair shows as
a Pro Beauty artist.
My artistic drive is largely fueled by my love for Rock N Roll, which plays a significant role in inspiring my hair styling work. My specialties include crafting shags, mullets, and curly, textured cuts, along with innovative color blocking and effortless lived-in blondes.
When I'm not styling, you can find me strumming my guitar, riding motorcycles, attending local gigs to support artists, or exploring new places.
As for music–that's a hard one. I love everything from 80s glam to metal to surf rock, rest assured that we'll always have some great tunes playing while you're in my chair.
