I. LOVE. THE. HAIR. BUSINESS.

I have been in the beauty industry for over 20 years. I was a Paul Mitchell Systems National Educator for 7 years. I feel the art of face shape is the most important aspect in creating a customers hairstyle. I love to change a persons’ self esteem. A touch of color, a pair of scissors, or a razor for those soft textured looks can add so much to a persons’ overall look.

My passion has changed over the years. I also love watching the seasoned hairstylists and rising hairstylists grow from behind the chair and fall in love with their craft!

After 9 years behind the chair, Ally enjoys the constant change of styles and fashion.  Nothing inspires her more than seeing the added confidence that comes along with you looking your best!! She is a team player and has been a part of several salon Education events, Photo Shoot work & several community events. Ally has been a Paul Mitchell National Color Educator for 3 years now.  Educating doesn’t stop with her, she enjoys teaching her clients what look will best suit their features, lifestyle and how to recreate that look at home.  She enjoys color, cutting and specialty styles but LOVES dimensional color/specialty blonding services, women’s short hairstyles and men’s grooming.  Don’t forget to “bat those lashes; as a Novalash expert she enjoys brightening up your look by adding lash extensions for special events or everyday wear.

Jessica Freels
Artistic Director

“I have had a love of all things hair and make-up for as long as I can remember.  After high school I attended community college for a year, knowing that being a stylist was my true calling.  Once I had made a definite decision on attending Cosmetology school I never looked back, it’s hard to believe that was 13 years ago.  Choosing to be a part of the Hollywood Hair team was a very easy decision, as they had a stellar reputation in our town.  In the eleven years I have been working as a stylist at Hollywood Hair I have seen myself grow tremendously, from starting as an assistant to being the top stylist for the last four years.”
