Allie (she/her) loves people, and she loves stories. As both a stylist and studio director, she sews curiosity and courtesy into the fabric of Washington Square.
Allie believes magic emerges when we have space to pause, especially when our splendor is mirrored back to us in that time. “I don’t let people talk badly about themselves in my chair,” she explains. It’s not that she is an advocate for toxic positivity, either. Heartache happens. And when it happens to her clients, Allie lends out her own certainty that they’re special, and cool, and they’re going to walk out of the studio glowing.
As a stylist, Allie gravitates towards cuts that move with you. She loves working with waves or curls and describes her styling impulses as textured, lived-in, and romantic. She particularly welcomes requests based on how you want to feel and reference photos of hair you like. Allie can help you figure out how an exciting departure can work with your face, texture and lifestyle.
