Amanda is the owner of Pink Salon & Extensions Studio in the adorable small town of Inman, SC. She has been behind the chair for over 20 years and is also an RN. Her obsession with extensions began in the 11th grade when she started making homemade clip ins for prom for all her girlfriends. She didn’t love the idea of “gluing” hair into your head. Not to mention the mess it made. So the sewing began.
In the beginning, hair extensions were just an “add-on” type service until she had her own struggle with hair loss in 2014. After her second baby, Amanda lost over 50% of her hair. The texture changed, her skin became duller, and she felt like a fraud to all her clients as a hairdresser. She wore temporary hair pieces for almost 2 years while her scalp healed enough for a more permanent option. That’s when she started avidly searching for answers. She went to classes to learn more about hair loss and what causes it. Using her nursing background, she began to merge her two expertise together to understand not only the WHY of hair loss but also to be able to help.
In 2017, she discovered NBR extensions and took her first trip to California. She had finally found a solution that could actually help! She joined the Academy and became the first NBR artist in South Carolina. She was able to connect with artists around the country to dive deeper and learn as much as possible to help other women struggling with thin, fine, lifeless hair.
After 7 months, she transitioned her entire business to exclusively extensions. Even now, after 6 years of doing the NBR method, she still finds each transformation nothing short of miraculous. She wants each woman to leave her salon feeling beautiful, healed, educated, and confident!
