At a young age, jasmine knew this industry was for her. her barbies got haircuts right out of the box and her mom couldn't find a good enough hiding spot for her makeup. she always loved anything "beauty" related. As soon as she was old enough to get a job she began working at Collage Salon where she worked for 13 years. she recently joined the District Salon salon team in late January of 2017. she has traveled internationally and domestically for advanced training.

Meg started apprenticing in 2012 in Atlanta. She has received education through Redken artists, Bumble & Bumble education, Rick Welman & 901 online BCTV courses. Her hometown: Canton, Georgia. Her favorite hair to work with is ombré & sombré...your bright blondes and subtle brunettes. Biggest learning experience would be doing family hair they have always been practiced on and are the pickiest. She's not sure if she chose hair or hair chose her, she's been doing friends hair since she was 15 and knew this was the profession for her. If she were a hair product she would be dry texture spray, looking messy and put together at the same time. Tool she can't live without would be her curling iron, for that messy undone curl.

Olivia grew up in South Louisiana, which you can tell instantly from her free spirit and hospitality. One day in 2013 while she was getting her hair done at an Aveda salon, she was offered an apprenticeship on the spot. It took her all of 3 days to go with her gut and accept the offer. It was shortly after that where she realized that this industry would give her everything and more that she wanted out of a career. After working in the salon for 4 years, she adventured out to her own salon suite where she quickly learned that she loved the people part of the business way more than the business part! Olivia has a passion for people and loves making women feel beautiful and relaxed in their time together. She has taken education classes with top industry stylists and loves to continually advance her skill set to be able to deliver the latest techniques for her clients!
