Meet the...

Beauty Boss

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 13 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.

Allison Gillespie

Hair Stylist

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. GLAM. DRIVEN.

When it comes to the beauty industry, Maddy believes everyone deserves to look and feel glam! She has a passion for creative coloring techniques, such as balayage and ombre, and eyelash extensions. Her goal is to keep all of her clients updated on the latest hair and beauty trends. Maddy takes time to build important connections with each of her clients to perfectly tailor their look to their life. Outside of the salon, you can find Maddy spending time with her one-year-old son, Nolan, or shopping for a new outfit that she doesn’t really need.

BUBBLY. COURTEOUS. SMILEY.

At VIVO Beauty Bar, come to explore all the colors of the Nail Bar with Meg for any season or event. She is constantly working to perfect her nail art skills, discovering fun, new nail ideas to match her client's personalities. Although thus far, nails have been her go-to, she is excited to grow her hair portfolio and sharpen her skills behind the chair. Wanting to be a cosmetologist 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 to make a clients mood light up gives Meg so much joy! When she's not pampering clients at the salon, she is binge-watching Netflix, hiking/biking, or letting her boyfriend make her try new things!

AWW-DORABLE. SOPHISTICATED. GLAMOROUS

As Co-Owner of VIVO, you will find this 2-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!
