“Don’t Get Into Business with Your Best Friend.”

That’s what they said, but we had no idea how good we would be together.

Theory Salon owners Clarissa and Magan

It started with a conversation.

Clarissa and Magan met in the late 90’s while working together in a small boutique salon in Charlotte. They shared many experiences over the years in and out of the industry. As they became leading stylist and with a strong desire for new horizons things got exciting.

Day dreams, similar ideas and a need for a place to express their creativity and grow their vision. A vision that comes from a drive to succeed and inspire. They knew what was missing. A culture that invoked a desire to learn , a team first atmosphere where they could push stylists to create lasting friendships with each other and create beautiful experiences to be shared with their clients all while leading by example.

Theory Salon was established in 2006.

After many nights of putting heart and soul into the next chapter. To this day Clarissa and Magan have the same work ethic, the same drive to succeed and that same friendship.

“Karie has been my stylist for the better part of a decade. I trust her 100%. Every time I leave her chair I feel amazing. I have recommended her to everyone I know. I’m a fan for life.”
