Terri Gore, Stylist Owner of Gore Salon
  • Master Design Artist
  • Redken Certified Hair Colorist
  • Redken Certified Specialist
  • Redken Certified Color Authority

Terri has been in the salon industry since 1974. She has also held a South Carolina Teaching License since 1978. Her passion for teaching is only surpassed by her passion for the hair industry.

Terri was a Redken Performing Artist for 9 years and it was one of the major highlights of her career. The inspiration and education that Terri received while working for Redken has made her into the true salon professional she is today. Being in the Cosmetology field for over 40 years, Terri has enjoyed watching the evolution and growth of the industry. She also loves coaching young salon professionals to help them reach their full potential.

Her inspiration for hair comes from everything around her, from kids on the street to nature and art. Her creativity shines when designing a color and cut that matches her client's personality and lifestyle. Her favorite tools are top of the line shears and a large variety of curling irons and flat irons. Terri is known as the tool junkie. The products she could not do without are Pureology Color Addict Heat Protectant, Redken Stay High Mousse, Redken Grip Tight and firm hold hair spray!

There are so many hilarious salon stories working behind the chair for over 40 years. Terri's favorite story is the woman that hid her cardboard bottles of wine in the commode tank in the restroom.

Terri enjoys spending time with her children, grandchildren, and friends. She also enjoys her boat on Lake Murray, traveling and scuba diving.

Terri said if she wasn’t a hair stylist she would love to be a plastic surgeon, too bad the sight of blood makes her faint!

Megan’s dream job? When asked what your dream job would be if you were not a hair stylist, she says… “I think I would be a fast-pitch softball coach.

Nicole Shiels Stylist at Gore Salon in Columbia SC

Nicole recently relocated from North Carolina. She discovered her passion for hair while attending North Carolina State University and has loved making people look and feel beautiful since! She graduated from Paul Mitchell in Raleigh in 2013. While in school she was recognized as Student of the Month and mentored new students. Her passion is blondes, color corrections, natural dimension, braids, and special occasion styling. Nicole said her favorite tool is a flatiron because it can be used to straighten, curl, and create waves, and the product she couldn't live without is Pureology Color Fanatic. Nicole attended the 2017 Redken Symposium in Las Vegas, and has attended advanced training in Redken color, cutting and Balayage. She is currently studying for her Redken color certification exam. She is also certified in Keratin treatments. For entertainment Nicole enjoys spending time with her family on the lake and attending Gamecock football games.
