Visionary // OWNER // CEO

Andrea Valle

The new owner and current visionary of Hair Loft Studio, Andrea was a hairstylist for 12 years before retiring from behind the chair. An avid business course junkie, and continued self-education enthusiast, Andrea completed her growth plan for this current location in under 15 weeks – this is when she found her purpose. 

“I am extremely grateful for all the love and support from our guests and thankful that you’ve taken the time to stay with us through the changes, or visiting our salon if you’re a first-timer. Our salon continues to evolve in providing the best education, hair care, and experience to empower you and your inner beauty.”

I am known as “Pops” around the salon. I was an Education Director and Platform Artist for Sebastian Professional for 10 years and Master Trainer for Balmain Extensions. I have been in the industry for 20 years. I enjoy walking my cute doggies or taking bike rides around the city. I am honest, passionate and believe that what HLS does is way more than hair and we consistently strive to deliver exceptional experiences. I am inspired to develop the young talent and continue building the HLS team.

My name is Maegan, but you can call me Meg. I love working out in the gym because it brings me stress relief and sets the tone for my day. My guilty pleasure is snacking on oreo thins during my breaks. Behind the chair, I specialize in Blonding and Extensions and my passion lies in creating a safe space where my client can leave feeling like their best self. My HLS family claims I am fierce, bubbly & determined to succeed. I started my career with HLS in 2016 and am extremely happy to be a part of this special team.

You can call me Kenny. Outside the salon, I enjoy playing with my puppies or cooking a delish meal from scratch. I am a visual learner and always willing to help. Friends and family know me as a gentle, loving and charismatic person. I am proud to be a part of the HLS team working with a group of diverse, talented stylists. I can’t wait to continue to learn from my coworkers and grow into a better stylist each day.

AlySSA phillips

My name is Alyssa. I’m silly, bubbly, and one of a kind. I absolutely love giving my clients that perfect shade of blonde and topping it off with a gorgeous style. It’s a service I can do all day everyday, along with the inspiration of my team members and a Diet Coke in between. I’m looking forward to thriving and growing my career at HLS.

Lauren Baker

My friends consider me sweet and silly. I create in and out of the salon, whether it is painting or sketching. I strive to be able to change how someone feels or how they look at themselves to leave them feeling confident and beautiful. I truly enjoy vivid color services, especially a fun rainbow design. You have to learn to fill your cup first before you can fill anyone else’s. 

Holly Wallace

I am an artist and find every chance I get to bring my artistry into the salon. Whether it is a balayage blonde or a funky, vivid, I will have fun creating the best color for my clients. You can find me at a music festival during my off time or hanging out with my incredible daughter. Working at Hair Loft gives me the opportunity to go above and beyond for my clients. Nothing makes me happier than a client leaving the salon feeling better than when they arrived.

Kristen Phillips

Born and raised in the good ole’ Boutte, Louisiana! I love doing hair! Color is my absolute favorite! It is truly my passion and art. I have been behind the chair for 4 years now but always had a fond interest in everything beauty! I was the one who was giving all of my cousins Spice Girl buns! I challenge myself every day and look forward to dipping into my creativity to have it grow even more. My motto is: “Once you stop learning, you stop growing.” Every day is the perfect balance of giving my guests a luxury experience while still having the ability to be creative and have fun.
