Meagan Gallman, Owner at The Magnolia Parlor LLC, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in hair care.
Since 2019, Ms. Gallman has prospered as owner and master hair colorist with The Magnolia Parlor LLC in Hazlehurst, Mississppi, a premier full-service salon and creative space catering to the growth and education of hairstylists. Previously, she had excelled from 2013 to 2019 as owner and operator of Tangles Salon in Crystal Springs, where as a master colorist specializing in blonding and reds, she also provided apprenticeship opportunities to new stylists as well as shadow projects for current cosmetology students.
Since 2017, Ms. Gallman has provided superior service as an artistic brand educator and color specialist with leading beauty products manufacturers Joico and Olivia Garden. In addition, since 2021, she has served with the education team with Beauty Launchpad, a magazine for professional hairstylists and salons, in which she disseminates color and product knowledge to stylists both new and seasoned in the industry. As a freelance writer for beauty blogs and magazines, Ms. Gallman discusses trending styles as well as real-life salon situations “behind the chair” and what to expect next in the beauty industry. In 2008, she had obtained an associate degree in cosmetology from Copiah-Lincoln Community College, and she holds a license in cosmetology.
Ms. Gallman’s many professional honors include a listing in Female Entrepreneur’s Watchlist, Women Entrepreneur and Most Influential Female Entrepreneur, Women Entrepreneur, a citation in Modern Salon Magazine and Best Hair Salon in Mississippi, all in 2021.
Ms. Gallman’s roots can be traced to a small town in a southern state, where the beauty industry was not taken seriously, which became part of the reason she was attracted to cosmetology. In addition, she considers herself as an artist in the field and gravitated towards specializing in color, which led her to become a national educator for top beauty companies.
Owning a salon was not something she had planned, but it became the next step for her after being a color and product knowledge educator and brand ambassador for multiple companies, as well as a mentor to cosmetology students and young girls from schools who follow her work and aspire to learn from her. Having had experience managing a salon for others and understanding the importance of providing ample room for hairstylists to learn and grow creatively, she decided to start her own establishment, The Magnolia Parlor, and set out to make changes that she thought were necessary to evolve the industry.
In the coming years, Ms. Gallman hopes to expand the opportunities for educating people, especially children, about the way cosmetology is presented, to help evolve the perception of society around hairstylists and the cosmetic world in general. She wants everyone to recognize hairstyling as a profession that is as respectable as other professions that have enjoyed acclaim. Part of her goal is to encourage hairdressers to treat their work as a serious and professional job rather than as a hobby.
