Hi there! My name is Allie Ballinger and I’m the owner of The Owl’s Nest Hair Studio. If you’re wondering where the name “Owl” came from, it was my childhood nickname that friends and family called me for years. I’m so excited to live out my dream of owning my own business. Even in the sixth grade, I wrote a letter to my future self saying I wanted to be a hairstylist one day! I received my training at Paul Mitchell in Normal, Illinois, and have been working as a hair stylist now for five years. I have always loved the idea of making people feel beautiful, and getting to do so on a daily basis brings me so much joy. I can’t wait to meet you and make all your hair dreams come true!
