Level 3 Stylist

For more than five years, Stylist Liz Arnold has honed her skills and quickly become a go-to hair expert here at Green Alley Hair Salon. After graduating from the College of Cosmetology in Killeen in 2010, Liz worked for several of the top salons in the state and trained with Redken and Pureology artists. These opportunities helped Liz diversify her skills and increase her overall knowledge, which allows Liz to deliver gorgeous looks no matter your hair type or style preference.

A passion for education helps drive her career and has lead Liz to attend several advanced cutting and color classes, including her Redken Master Specialist Certification. She believes every occasion to continue her education is a privilege, but working with Redken Artist Karen Dungan has been the most influential experience. Karen was the first stylist Liz worked for as an associate in the Summit Program, and she helped shaped Liz into the successful stylist she is today. Beyond enhancing her skills in color formulation, product knowledge, and how to pair the best products for each client, Liz believes the lasting lesson she learned from Karen was the importance and love for education.

“I have worked with many different salons, and it has given me the ability to adapt to several different products and techniques. I have been able to work with several different color and haircare lines, which has allowed me to become more creative in my color formulations and product recommendations. In turn, it has also helped my critical thinking skills and my problem solving abilities, because I have to learn something new instead of relying on the same products, formulas, or techniques. The knowledge I have gained and the opportunity to think outside the box is invaluable.”

Liz specializes in blondes, balayage, handpainting, and cutting and coloring long hair. As a blonde herself, she felt motivated to take almost a year off to specifically train in balayage and blondes. Now she not only understands the mindset of her clients that love maintaining lighter looks, Liz can expertly deliver color services that span the full blonde spectrum. “I love when my guests leave feeling like a new, more confident version of themselves, and I want them all to feel like they found a stylist they can trust. I love making a connection and having fun with my guests, and I enjoy the creativity that working with hair gives me.” When not crafting beautiful looks for our guests here at Green Alley Hair Salon, Liz loves to stay active by playing volleyball in a local league, playing guitar, singing karaoke, and dancing.
