PASSIONATE. DRIVEN. CHIC.

Sami's true passion for beauty started when she was a young girl going to the hair salon with her aunt. She loved every aspect of the salon and would make up excuses to return - so starting beauty school at age 15 was a no-brainer for her. Fast forward over 15 years later, her passion for this industry has only grown and flourished since. When she's not at VIVO with her #beautygang, you'll either find her traveling the country with AQUA Hair Extensions - sharing her knowledge with other industry professionals, playing ball with her diva pup Lucca (yes, you better bet she's a total diva), or getting her workout on at the gym.

AMBITIOUS. INDEPENDENT. ANIMAL OBSESSED.

Allison has had a passion for hair ever since her high school days of practicing looks on her friends, even if a few of those styles were a little funky! By 16, she was enrolled in cosmetology school through her high school and she just knew it was something she wanted to do for the rest of her life. She loves that she continues to learn every day and that the industry is always changing. When she's not at VIVO, she loves hanging out with her spunky toddler who always keeps her on her toes, rescuing cats/any animals and spending time with her family! She is grateful to be apart of the amazing team at VIVO and knowing that there will be no carbon footprint while doing what we love!

BUBBLY. COURTEOUS. SMILEY.

At VIVO Beauty Bar, come to explore all the colors of the Nail Bar with Meg for any season or event. You can also find her behind the chair doing hair or relax and get a massage with her. She is constantly working to perfect her nail art skills and discovering fun, new nail ideas to match her client's style/personalities. Although nails are her expertise, she is excited to grow her hair portfolio and sharpen her skills behind the chair as well as start her Massage Therapy business at VIVO. Wanting to be a Cosmetologist and Massage Therapist has been her passion since 7th grade (yes, somehow at age 13 she knew exactly what she wanted to do for the rest of her life). Even just doing a polish change or refill color to make a clients mood light up, gives Meg so much joy! When she's not pampering clients at the salon, she is watching Netflix, chilling with her fur baby Atticus or letting her boyfriend spoil her!

Emily knew since she was 10, that she wanted to be a hairdresser. Getting her hair done in a salon made her feel beautiful and more confident.

Emily decided to join the cosmetology program at her high school and quickly fell in love with the industry. 16 years later she’s just as passionate for the beauty industry as she was on day one. Her favorite services are highlighting, balayage, haircuts and short or long hairstyles! When not at VIVO, Emily enjoys spending time with her three kids, her fiancé, and their three dogs. Her house is busy and loud all the time and she wouldn’t want it any other way!

AWW-DORABLE. SOPHISTICATED. GLAMOROUS

As Co-Owner of VIVO, you will find this 4-year-old Shichon princess welcoming you to the Beauty Bar every time you step in! She enjoys cuddling on the spa bed and her favorite spot to lay is in the second wash bar chair. You can find her most days lounging in the sun when the garage door is open or taking a nap on her favorite rug under the table! She loves to play with her toys and she loves treats—but like most everyone nowadays, she has food allergies. So please don’t feed her too many treats or human food because she gets an upset belly. She is one classy mother-pupper and this su-PAW-star is here to brighten everyone’s day!
