Allana

Level 4AA Stylist - Owner 

Extension Specialist

$72 Women's Cuts

$44 Men's Cuts

With the help and encouragement from her high school cosmetology teacher, Allana knew being a professional hair stylist was the right path to choose. Immediately after completing high school she enrolled in Eveline Charles Academy and graduated the following spring ready to start in a salon and never looked back. Her love for the industry isn't just about hair, but about how it makes her guests feel. When they feel beautiful and confident she is truly satisfied. 
 
After being in the industry since 2008, Allana felt it was time to venture out on her own, opening Elixir Hair Studio in the fall of 2015. Her journey as a business owner is just beginning. She has surrounded herself with positive, like-minded people which keeps her grounded and always pushes forward. 
 
With a passion for travel and education she has combined the two by taking classes abroad and plans to do many more trips in the future. Constantly upgrading her skills and seeing the world is where she gets her true inspiration.

Allana attended the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, CA perfecting her cutting skills. She has taken a variety of cutting, colouring, and styling classes over the years until settling down with Pureology as an educator. Working backstage with some amazing artists has been very humbling to her.

Allana is trained in all methods of extensions, with the micro-weft method being her favourite as it is non-damaging with no heat, glue or chemicals added. Learn more about our extensions here.
