Megan O'Leary


Megan has been a hairstylist for 8 years and counting. Hair has always been a passion for her, even before becoming a licensed stylist, she would play with her friends and family’s hair. It always felt so natural for her!.

She particularly finds joy in formal styles. They take a lot of thought, dedication and creativity. Color has her heart. She loves creating dimensional colors such as blondes, reds, browns, you name it and she can create it!

She is a mother of two wonderful sons, Cameron and Riley. So when she’s not behind the chair creating, she’s enjoying her free time with them.

If you book with her, rest assured she will treat you like family, and not only that, she will achieve the kind of hair that you envisioned!

This is an art form for her, so she takes her time and much consideration to ensure you are the happiest and most satisfied with your end results. Your hair needs and hair goals matter!
