Theresa Magary - Level 1

When she was young, Theresa constantly styled the hair of her three sisters. A year into nursing school, she realized her heart wasn’t in a career as a nurse, and she scheduled a tour at Paul Mitchell that day. After coming across Salon Antebellum’s website and falling in love with the way the salon looked and the continuing education offered, she entered the associate program. Eventually, Theresa would like to become an educator herself and inspire future artists. Her goal is to make every guest that sits in her chair feel beautiful and confident about their look. She enjoys growing herself as an artist and widening her knowledge base through ongoing education. Color and balayage come naturally to Theresa and she is an expert in braiding and styling.
