Master Hair Stylist

Ansleigh Faulkner grew up in Ruston, Louisiana. She moved to Plano, Texas in 2020 with her husband. When Ansleigh was 2 years old she was diagnosed with stage 4 non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Going through chemotherapy she lost all of her hair but that’s where her love and passion for hair began. She would constantly play with her mom’s hair to ease the longing of wanting to experience it personally. Ansleigh has now been a licensed barber and cosmetologist for 7 years. She specializes in men/women cuts, balayage, and color. Her favorite part of being a stylist is making women feel beautiful, meeting new people, and building new friendships.
