Stylist at Gore Salon in Columbia SC
Welcome, Annie – our newest stylist at Gore.
Born and raised in Virginia, Annie was a nationally competitive synchronized swimmer before going to the University of Virginia to study history. She dreamed of being a history professor in an idyllic little college town. She was always drawn to the beauty industry but didn’t have the guts to jump in to cosmetology school after high school. It was two years out of college and in the work world when Annie realized that wanted to pursue her passion and become a stylist. It was ultimately her own hairstylist who encouraged her to go for it! So she enrolled in Graham Webb Academy in Arlington, Virginia for hair school and rest is history.
Annie is patient, kind, and thorough and has a natural ability to listen to and connect with her clients – all traits that help make a stylist successful. She finds joy in making people feel great about how they look. She particularly enjoys performing haircuts because a refreshed hairstyle is a simple way to make someone feel fabulous.
Annie says the single greatest motivating factor in her life is her faith in Jesus Christ as her Savior.
