Allison McTigue's clients always stand out in a crowd because of the striking styles she creates to reveal their true beauty and inherent sexiness.
Trained at Jamison Shaw in Atlanta under some of the country's top stylists, Allison has more than a decade of industry experience and specializes in the French technique of hair styling. Her attention to detail in cutting, coloring and finishing hair creates wearable hair art that is beautiful and natural. Allison also is an expert in color correction. From a charming studio in Buckhead, she provides clients with exclusive, one-on-one attention. Allison's custom service also includes teaching clients how to maintain their looks with the right products and styling techniques. Always aware of the latest styling techniques and fashion trends, Allison's approach to her craft remains constant: "Beautiful never goes out of style."
I was introduced to Allison through a mutual friend about three weeks ago and I will be forever grateful for that introduction.
My long time stylist had moved away and I made the colossal mistake of going to a local "salon". I had just spent three and a half hours in what can only be described as the depths of hell only to emerge with hair six inches shorter, poorly cut, and the WORST hair color I have ever had. Ever. After considering shaving my head (raccoon stripes on the sides, polka dots in the back, a Cruella deVille slash of white across the front, a blob of white cotton on top, including a lopsided haircut, and most of my hair broken off), I texted my friend for her stylist's name because she had previously told me that Allison was worth her weight in gold. If only I had listened the first time! I frantically called Allison and was in tears. I'm not sure if it was the mention of a chain hair cutting facility or the tears, but she worked me in two days later. THANK YOU.
My hair was in the worst shape ever. I knew instantly that Allison was the one who could restore my once lovely locks to their previous health and shine. She went to work and honestly, in the 15 years I have been highlighting my hair, I have never had someone be so meticulous and creative. I didn't question her, I just let her do her thing. I left the first time with my cut straight, my color on its way back to normal and some magical shine and conditioning treatment that has given this poor head of hair relief. I couldn't believe it.
I went in on Tuesday, March 4, and again Allison worked her special magic. I left feeling and looking fantastic. So much so that when my husband walked in from work, he immediately said, "Wow, your hair looks fantastic"! That hasn't happened in 15 years without provocation from me. My hair has shine, depth and a sassy swing again!
I am still a work in progress and I can't wait to see what she does next. There aren't enough positive things to say about her. She definitely knows her stuff! Professional, smart, and funny with a very cool vibe. Allison is an old soul, who can talk about anything all while working her special magic on you; it IS magic. I didn't think my hair could be saved!
Some people think they are talented, but others just KNOW they are and the proof is in the result. She is a master artist and I will follow her anywhere. If you want a fabulous cut and color, go directly to Allison, do not pass go. She is bringing the sexy back! Color me one grateful and happy girl.
I do not write reviews, but she is *that* good. Call her! You will not be sorry.
Allison is the consumate professional - with color, with style, with her approach to educating her LOYAL client base as she works with their hair.
Talk about a challenge! I made my first appt with Allison and showed up WITH NO HAIR. I had just completed chemo treatment for breast cancer and decided what better way to see what a stylist has in the way of confidence and knowledge then challenging them with a stranger asking "what are you going to do with this currently bald head once my hair grows back?"
Not only did it take imagination and guts to on Allison's part to grow my hair back successfully, but also, my hair had changed color, texture, gone from straight to curly...and Allison colored it beautifully at each step of the growing out process.
But I did it to her again when I was diagnosed with brain cancer! I got to keep my hair but poor Allison had to make me look good while working around over a dozen stitches and bald spots from both brain surgery and radiation therapy...and she managed to do so and as I result, I am constantly complimented on my hair.
Allison observes the nuances of children's hair color and seeks to put the variations and subtelties of those palettes into her coloring, resulting in such naturally beautiful color. She has a BROAD based clientelle, fascinating people that I enjoy visiting with when I am in her salon; from teens to older professionals.
Well, after 3+ years with Allison, and after having my hair done for decades in Beverly Hills AND Manhattan, I can easily say, while I feared having my hair done in Atlanta, I'd take her over ANY of the TOP Beverly Hills or Manhattan hairstylists/colorists I've had before her. Plus it is just an honor to know such a good person who is so focused on her clients and their satisfaction. I just hate I can't go in more often. I need some Allison time more often than every 6 weeks.
If you are looking for a salon you can trust through and through, and if by chance you happen to be going through a hair trauma, I am here to say Allison will not only get you to your best again, but as noted, will educate you along the way. You can't go wrong with my NOW friend Allison. And I NEVER write a review for anyone! One more thing...I've seen people come regularly from as far away as Tennessee just so Allison could correct disasters from other salons.
Amazing salon! I haven't had my hair done in years because the last few experiences I had were awful... but I won an appointment from a church auction, and from the minute I walked in they were both professional and amazing! I will definately be back over and over!
Allison is truly a master of her craft. When I first moved to Atlanta and made an appointment with her, I was not sure what to expect. However, she quickly won my trust with her flawless color and expert counsel.
Furthermore, Allison is an expert at color correction. She not only was able to fix a color "oops" that I brought to her, but talked me through the process. She made sure that I understood each step of the correction, as well as how to maintain my new look with the right products and styling. She's the best and I can't imagine trusting anyone else to color my hair!
I have FINALLY found a stylist I LOVE and TRUST!! After moving here from Southern California years ago, I searched and searched for a stylist who can not only listen to what I wanted, but could suggest what they thought would look good for me. Michelle Callahan came highly recommended by a trusted friend and she is absolutely FABULOUS!!! She is THE MOST talented stylist and colorist I've ever met. Strangers compliment my hair all the time - even weeks after my appointments. I will never let anyone else touch my hair again. Michelle is truly the BEST!
Trusted friend and colleague Michelle Callahan joins forces with ColorBar! Michelle has an extensive resume and over a decade of experience in Atlanta's top salons. She was trained as a master colorist with Van Michael and Colorbar's very own Allison McTigue. In 2004 Michelle was selected as one of 50 stylists nationwide by Logics as a certified educator. Michelle has built a loyal clientele of women with an average of 5 years of service. With great attention to detail, she has amassed a cult following of men as well. With a warm smile and open arms Michelle offers incredible services economical prices. "It is my passion to make Atlanta more beautiful. It would be my honor to be your stylist."
If you are looking for the best hair stylist in Atlanta, look no more. Allison McTigue at Color Bar Salon is excellent at her craft, not only an expert colorist but the whole package has been consistent the entire 10+ years I have had the pleasure to be her client
Allison has been my hairstylist for 8 years. I like to refer to her as the "hair goddess" and promise that a haircut and/or color from her is the next best thing to therapy -- she will change your life! And if you have a special event to go to or just want to up your style factor for a night on the town, she's the person you need to see if you really want to make an impression -- your hair will look great! And Allison is also great with advice on what to wear, what accessories to choose, and how to do your makeup to make sure you're always at your best.
Never felt better about my hair style – I had a terrible time finding a stylist in Atlanta until I discovered Allison. I don't have to give her any input and she does a fabulous job with both the color and the cut. I have never received more complements about my hair!
Terrific in every respect. – I have never been to a salon in which I've felt so confident that I'll walk out feeling fabulous and loved. Allison cares about making you look and feel great from head to toe and promotes confidence in health and beauty alike. My coworker recommended Allison to me last summer when I was looking to mix it up with my hair color and style--I came out thrilled with the results which were well suited to my style, skin color, makeup, and time commitments. I look forward to going in every time and seeing her dedication to and happiness in doing what she does! Hands down, I won't be leaving Color Bar and Allison.
That is so sweet. Thank you!
