Hello pals! I’m Haley, but formally known as Athena at the Salon. I’m from Kennesaw, Georgia and attended Cobb Beauty College in downtown Kennesaw with my mom!
My passion for the beauty industry began at a young age when my cousins and I would pretend to be in America’s Next Top Model, doing each other’s hair and makeup for our pretend Vogue magazines that we would put together. I began experimenting with my hair color and makeup in middle school, and after graduating high school my mom encouraged me to follow my talents alongside her at cosmetology school.
I was a little lost and uncertain on my path until I found Bob Steele. Since joining the team I’ve had amazing opportunities to expand my education and experiences, and finally learned how to tame my naturally curly hair thanks to our amazing educators! Aside from creating at the salon, my life revolves around music, as I’ve played viola for fifteen years and enjoy singing and playing guitar with my husband and friends. I’m a lover of true crime podcasts, my GSD pup, nostalgic Disney tunes, and most know me as the Jonas Brothers’ biggest fan. I like to enjoy a good IPA or a glass of red wine every now and then. Snag an appointment in my chair and you’ll find that I love dry humor, learning all about my clients and creating your desired hair dreams!
