Alison has have been a Utah Cosmetologist since December of 2003, but her love for styling hair started when she was just a little girl. Every doll and every Barbie she owned was given a haircut, and as she grew she would practice styling on my cousin and all of her friends. So much, that they often got very bored with her always wanting to play with their hair! Color is definitely her most favorite service because it provides instant change in a subtle way, or as dramatic as you’d like. Big changes can happen with color in just 35 minutes! Her strength behind the chair would have to be communication and having the ability to gain a feel for what people are really asking for. This approach helps her to be able to guarantee all services she provides. Shes love styling hair at Salon Nouveau on Historic 25
Th Street in Ogden, because of the sense of community the salon and the whole street has to offer. Everyone supports each others businesses, and the girls at the salon have become her second family. Her major goal for 2011, would be to continue her education with the art of hairstyling.

Second grand prize is a Photo shoot of your choice by Rachael of fotograffiti. Use this prize to take family portraits, engagement photos, children’s portraits or anything else you can think of. package values at over $75.00
