Originally from New York City, Alison McGlynn graduated from Albuquerque Barber College and after honing her craft working with other barbers, she opened her first AlisonTheBarber men's salon in 2017. After only a short time, AlisonTheBarber won a "Best In The City" competition with Albuquerque The Magazine. Alison is also and educator and platform artist with Gib's Grooming. When she is not traveling around the country sharing her knowledge and passion for the craft she can be found donating her time doing hair for the local community theater groups, working passionately with domestic violence/human trafficking victims and cutting hair for the homeless and less fortunate in various local shelters. She is looking forward to sharing her love of barbering and learning from others in the Andis Education Team.
