Meet Alyson Mcknight

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alyson Mcknight.

Hi Alyson, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I started in New York, 16, attending a Cosmetology program in high school and working as a salon assistant.

After being a college dropout, I pursued hair more seriously and went to London to sharpen my skills.

Returning to the U.S I decided to take a leap of faith and move to LA. I started working for HairQueenLA & Mayvenn, which leveled up my career and talent.

That good life became uncomfortable once I started being called to step out and start – The Wig Catalog.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Not at all.

I had to fight fear, doubt, and unfortunate circumstances due to the pandemic.

I took some losses in the process of trying to get it right.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I’m a hairstylist that specializes in custom wigs. I’m mostly proud of how I color, style, and install wigs effortlessly.

What sets me apart is my own creative uniqueness.

Alright, so to wrap up, is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
Don’t give up.
