Meet your artist: Angie Barnes

If you have ever had the pleasure of meeting Angie, you most likely fell in love with her. Not only is she extremely talented working hair in ways that even Pinterest would bow down to, but she is kind and genuine. After I met Angie years ago, I liked her right away. Her laugh was contagious and her knowledge blew my mind. She is one of those stylists who can recommend exactly what you need style and product wise with such ease and confidence. The thing about Angie is, she doesn't "sell" things to sell them. You do not walk out of the salon with a product she couldn't stand behind or genuinely believed you could benefit from. She has integrity beyond words and that keeps her long list of clients coming back (and some on lists, waiting to get in)!

Angie is born and raised in Ballston Spa, NY and has been a staple in the industry for over 18 years. She prides herself on being the "go-to" for blondes but don't worry ladies, she will tend to all hair colors but once a blonde finds her they NEVER leave her. She can do highlights and tones to hair that look like they are all your own, it's truly an art. Angie's love for knowledge has lead her to train under Philip Wilson, Frederick Fekkai and Paul Mitchel. She is not a stranger to NYC and California to find the right classes to further her career.

Now you know that Angie is an all around amazing stylist, let's talk BRIDAL. I have never seen a star in the sky shine as bright as Angie does on a wedding. Her calm, professional attitude can handle any situation or personality with ease. Her fingers move faster than anything I have seen...they twist, bend and fluff hair into a bride's dream style. Angie has been my partner in weddings for a long time. The flow and experience we bring is what I strive to create with all of our artist teams.

On a rare weekend off, you will find Angie on the boat in Sacandaga Lake with her hunky husband and dogs. Or baking up something incredible that makes my jeans feel tight just thinking about it! If Angie sounds like your kind of artist, don't wait to book an appointment at her salon Haven or for your wedding day beauty!
