Monica is originally from western New York and moved to Central Texas in 1999. She has worked as a stylist for 16 years, spending 6 years working at local salons, then going into business for herself at the Salons at Tuscan Square in 2010. After successfully working on her own, she began the search for a salon that would better serve her clients! The search for just the right place began, and after months of looking, Beauty by Magic in Belton TX went up for sale. It was the perfect fit in the perfect location, and she purchased it in January 2013! After a week of major renovations and a complete makeover, Alter Salon was open for business! You can visit Monica for any of your styling needs, but, she specializes in color and highlighting, and is certified in Lox and Cinderella extensions. Monica has hands on-training with the leaders in the industry, and has attended the Redken Symposium in Las Vegas and the New York City Redken Exchange. She became a Redken Certified Specialist in 2013. When she isn't busy at the salon, she spends her time thinking about being in the salon, or playing with her dogs and husband!
