Abigale Kerr

My name is Abigale! I was born and raised in New Jersey, and came to Florida during high school where I met my amazing husband. After graduating, I moved around in different corporate positions but never felt satisfied. After being stuck staring at the backs of people's heads for what felt like too long, I quickly realized my passion for making people feel beautiful and enrolled in cosmetology school. After graduating Paul Mitchell The School Tampa, I came to Salon Halo and am currently working through my apprenticeship program. I am MUA certified and continuously working towards furthering my education to remain up to date on all of the latest trends. I look forward to growing with the help of the amazing team here at Salon Halo!

Taylor Arrington

Hi, I am Taylor. I was born and raised in Florida. I first started my journey at Paul Mitchell the school Tampa in April 2017 And I soon began my journey at salon halo. I chose salon halo because I have a passion for giving back to the community which is A huge part of the salons culture. I am always on the hunt to think of innovative ways to express my creativity in hair, such as creating elegant updos and intricate braiding styles. I am a braiding specialist and am also certified in easihair pro extensions. I have always struggled with thin hair and feel it is very important to help women feel more confident. I feel like adding extensions can play a huge part in adding that confidence to your lifestyle. I have a ridiculously embarrassing wheezy laugh and always love to make people giggle. I am super friendly and rarely and caught without a smile on my face.
