Allison Adkins profileAllison Carroll, Hair Stylist at Gore Salon in Columbia, SC

Allison is a natural in the hair business.  She knew she wanted to be a hair stylist back in middle school, when she started styling hair for her friends and family just for fun.  She’s outgoing and approachable and loves working with people.

Allison is from Irmo, SC, attended Dutch Fork High School and graduated from Kenneth Shuler School of Cosmetology.  She’s talkative, and loves to have a good time, even at her own expense.  She remembers a time while in hair school, she had just finished up a client’s cut and went to get a broom to sweep up.  She took a step, slipped on the hair and fell in front of everyone.  She was so embarrassed, but admits that it was hilarious and had a good laugh herself!

She loves making clients feel confident and beautiful.  Seeing the look on a client’s face when she sees her transformation is the most gratifying part of her job and it’s what drives her to learn more and grow.


  • Latest haircuts and hairstyles
  • Hair color
  • She is a master with the curling iron and loves doing beach waves

In addition to her curling iron, she won’t be caught without her favorite go-to Redken products.  One United, Pillow Proof and Control Addict 28 Hairspray!  She uses them on herself and nearly every client that sits in her chair.

“If you love your job, you’ll never work a day in your life!”
