MOLLY

Level 1 Stylist

MOLLY ANSON

Molly’s hair journey started in middle school; she loved to watch hair videos and practice on her friends, try new trends on her own, and just always loved to be creative.
On her first day of beauty school she went home to her wife and told her that she felt she was truly headed on the right path (and we are so glad she did!). She has a passion for lived-in and natural blondes.

Molly’s main goal when having a client sit in her chair is for them to truly feel heard and seen and for them to leave the salon with all the confidence in the world.
