Amanda grew up in Bakersfield, CA. and made her way to Nashville in 2001. She continued to take clients both here and in California going back and forth every other week. "I finally figured out that was crazy and permanently settled in Nashville in 2002." With over 19 years of experience (15 of those years being a salon owner!) Amanda knows the ins and outs of pretty much every aspect of hair and the industry itself and firmly says "I learn more each and every day!" When asked what she loves the most about our industry she answers enthusiasticly "I love the interaction with people! I love having every person who sits in my chair feel welcomed. I enjoy building that relationship, trust, and friendship. I have the opportunity to see people graduate, get married, have kids, celebrate promotions, and just enjoy life. It’s amazing!" To say Amanda is a people person would be an understatement, her huge smile, her awesome hugs (no, seriously..they are really good), and her bubbly personality combined with all those years of experience keep her guests coming back time and time again. Amanda isn't one to box herself in and states that she loves "every type of person, and every type of hair." Amanda was drawn to Local Honey for our continued education and our strong values of creativity, community and confidence. In her spare time you can find her tending to the farm she owns "McClanahan Farms." Fun Fact : Amanda is a Cow Dula (birthing coach)
