Hey, I'm Allie!
Chicago, Illinois, United States · Member since September 2011

I am a true midwesterner, and have now lived in Chicago for seven years. Currently I work as the creative director/master hair colorist and educator for Michael Anthony Aveda Salons in downtown Chicago. I love teaching how to look at things in a different way and that sometimes a mistake can turn into a masterpiece.

I love being able to help other people and I find that through hair coloring as well as my hobby of photography I am able to fulfill those moments each day. I have been pursuing this career since living in Chicago, however within the past few years have actively been working to build my portfolio: (website hidden). To me, there is nothing more than getting that priceless shot, the one that stirs up emotion, makes you smile, or perhaps brings tears to your eye—it’s that piece of your memory that you will forever treasure. Having these memories is so important; we all know how quickly life seems to move and change before us!

Besides photography and hair coloring, traveling is my passion and what I work for. By taking adventures, I look to not just meeting new people, but living the culture of wherever that may be. I love being the tourist in a city that is able to adapt and enjoy the local culture of wherever I may be. My dream job would be a travel-blogger-colorist, but until then I just look forward to every opportunity that comes my way to venture out of Chicago....
