Morgan

BLNDN Brand Educator

morgan-250.jpg

The first thing you might notice about Morgan is her tattoos. Black and white and artistic, through and through. And if you ask her about them, she'll happily point out her favorite—the Addams Family house.  But, you won't see her turning out Wednesday Addams from her chair. This lovely lady has spent the last 8 years in Austin, TX perfecting her skills and her vibe before moving to Frisco, TX. Morgan has a very specific mission.  To take your natural hair and make it better. No wait. To make it the best it can be. While she's fulfilling that mission, you'll get to see her skills in action.  Balayage…check.  Great Lengths Extensions…check.  And what she loves most about these transformative services is that it gives your look just just that much more. You shouldn't walking out looking like a different person.  Just the best version of you. So while she started with her college degree in history, she made her way into her passion, studying at Paul Mitchell and perfecting her skills.  And, when her path finally crossed ours, we said YES to everything about her. From that education, to her skills in breaking down the explanation of what needs to happen with your hair, to her transformative capabilities to that Addams Family house tattoo. Morgan is also certified in Brazilian Blowout and has attended ongoing advanced education programs from Wella, Oribe, R+Co, Uberliss, Sally Rogerson and Lisa Loves Balayage.
