She sharpened her craft through many advanced education classes in styling, cutting and color with Vidal Sassoon's Advanced Academy in London, Bumble & Bumble NYC, Toni & Guy NYC, Wella, Aveda, Davines, Kevin Murphy and with famed celebrity stylist Oribe. In NYC, she was a senior stylist at Woodley & Bunny, one of Elle Magazine's top 100 salons nationally, featured in Vogue, GQ, Nylon, NY Times, NY Magazine, Refinery29, Allure, Real Simple, Marie Claire, Paper, Time Out, Esquire, Oprah, Conde Nast, W, and InStyle magazine, among others.

Lowry is a huge fan of soft, natural textures and vibrant color in hair. She loves enhancing natural wave with razor cuts, as well as creating sharp Sassoon-inspired lines. She specializes in sun-kissed bayalage and also loves to create bold reds, pale blondes and rich chocolate brunettes. She's a bit obsessed with creating the perfect fringe.

Lowry hails from historic Charleston, South Carolina and grew up surrounded by ancient oak trees and the Atlantic Ocean. She is a friendly Southern gal who will immediately put you at ease with her laid back style and naturally warm personality. In her spare time, you can find her attending concerts, going on long walks around town with her dog Archie, snuggling with her cat Harvey, watching independent and classic films and daydreaming about traveling the globe.
