Stylist at Gore Salon in Columbia SC

Amber is one the latest stylist to join our team.  Amber was born in Saluda SC and has loved doing hair since she was little, practicing on her three sisters constantly. But she didn’t decide to become a professional stylist until she was in college.  A friend had asked her to do the hair and makeup for her wedding.  She knew then that’s what she wanted to do.  She enrolled in cosmetology school and graduated from Kenneth Shuler in 2017. 


  • haircuts on all lengths of hair, clippers or shears
  • the latest hairstyles and trends
  • hair color

She enjoys making others feel beautiful and getting the opportunity to meet new people. Her favorite tools are her clippers and her shears. She loves doing color but her favorite thing to do is cutting hair! Her favorite product is Guts because it is very versatile and be used on all of her clients.

She remembers one time in cosmetology school when she was testing out a new water bottle and accidentally sprayed one of her fellow student’s clients. Good thing she was heading to the shampoo bowl!

Amber lives in Saluda SC with her son, Grayson. If she wasn’t in the beauty industry she would want to be an Elementary school teacher. She loves little kids, but doesn’t think she could handle an entire classroom full of them all at once.
