Carolyn

Carolyn

Stylist

Carolyn is the newest member of the Allie J team. She recently graduated from Southern Technical College with a degree in Cosmetology.

A native to Georgia she was born and raised in McDonough along with her two brothers and a sister. After graduating high school she attended College of Charleston to pursue a liberal arts degree but her passion for creative drawing, color and fashion brought her back to Georgia to earn her degree in cosmetology.

It comes as no surprise that she gravitated towards the creative process of hair coloring and highlighting. When she’s not painting the locks of one of her clients you can find her on the tennis court working on her game.
