ABIGAIL (ABI) BAILEY
SALON ASSISTANT, EXPLORER, NANNY AND LOVER OF SCULPTURE
OR Salon adjoint, explorateur, nounou, et amant de la sculpture.
Abi loves the French language and French culture, hence the parlance above. At 22, this assistant at Wink has already taken on both the professional and personal work she hopes will allow her one day to open her own salon/spa.
She trained at the Aveda Institute in Charlotte, NC, where she won the regional competition as a beginner student and found herself recognized among the Masters at the Institute. She is working on a degree in cosmetology and hopes to get her massage therapy license as well, all the while learning more about becoming a colorist at Wink.
Abi loves exotic food (curry, curry, curry), considers styling hair an exercise in practical sculpting, detailed design concepts, exploring the Blue Ridge Parkway and painting hair. [She started the painting hair gig as a child using her Barbies……]
When she’s not at Wink, she’s practicing her French, baking, watching travel shows [she LOVES Anthony Bourdain] reading fantasy and watching Project Runway.
“I thrive on making guests, clients and my coworkers feel relaxed and valued and I love the art I see being created at Wink. We have creative stylists and happy clients here.”
