Hi, I'm Abby!
A real-life behind-the-chair hairstylist just like you!
Sunlights Pro Educator
Salon and Stylist Coach
As a 12-year licensed stylist I have experienced all different aspects of our industry. I began my career at The Aveda Institute-Columbus then worked in commission salons for the next 6 years. I then decided that I needed to grow on my own and became an independent studio salon owner. After 2 years of rapid growth I opened what is now AW Salon in North Canton, OH.
My desire to be a salon owner stems from my love of educating. I consider myself a forever student. So, sharing my knowledge and experience with other stylists comes very natural to me. In 2016 I became a Sunlights Balayage Artisan Educator and trained under owner and creator of Sunlights, Candy Shaw. To continue my educational journey, I was accepted as a member of Intercoiffure North America/Canada. Now I'm part of an elite group of the most successful salon owners to learn first hand from.
Through the years of educating I have come to learn that most of today's stylists experience the same struggles. Through my balayage education I help stylists build their confidence in their balayage skills, but also in charging their worth, working smarter not harder behind the chair, and how to create the career of their dreams.
