Owner & Master Stylist | Dimensional Color + Extension Specialist

Hey, I'm Allison! I'm the owner of Unorthodox Salon and Suites and I specialize in brunettes, reds, dimensional lived-in color, handtied extensions, and custom precision haircutting.

I am originally from Ohio and moved to the upstate over five years ago. Although my family is entirely back in Ohio, Greenville has become my new home. Although my first career as a school counselor ended after 5 years, I have absolutely loved pursuing my passion for the hair industry. I've built my business and clientele from the ground up, and currently work part time behind the chair and travel as an independent educator.

I am an award-winning winning stylist with numerous recognitions and nominations in various beauty magazines, publications, and international competitions. 

 I am a dog mom to Finn and Penny. Finn is a 6 year old English Setter and Pitbull mix and Penny is a 2 year old purebred English Setter. Finn is a registered therapy dog so you can find him roaming around at the salon keeping everyone company.

I own my own home, love to travel, and am a big foodie! Outside of the salon, you can find me reading mystery or fiction books, spending time with friends, working on backend salon work and social media, or listening to true crime podcasts.

"UNBELIEVABLE!! You know when you’re scrolling through Pinterest and and you see those perfectly blended colors, cuts and extensions and you just KNOW an absolute hair wizard has done magic? That’s what you get when you go see Allison 🩷! She is a true master of her craft, she’s thoughtful and makes your hair better than you could have even imagined. I’m so thankful for her!!"


"The work flow of Allison and Raegan is flawless and I was so impressed at how well they worked in tandem for my service. And how can you go to Unorthodox without mentioning Finn? He's the absolute sweetest furry four-legged greeter you'll ever meet! I adore this salon, but so do a lot of people! There can be a wait to get in to see them, so plan ahead! And yes, they are just THAT good and definitely worth the wait."


"My hair has never been healthier since starting to see Allison over a year ago. She is so talented and knows exactly how to make my dream hair come to life. She has created such an amazing atmosphere in her salon too, I truly feel like I’m going to hang out with some friends for a few hours every time I go. SO happy I found her when I moved to Greenville - can’t recommend her enough!"
