Nightbird was founded in April of 2015 by owner/stylist Lowry Beall.
Lowry has been a stylist for over 15 years and was extensively trained in New York City at the Aveda Institute in Soho. Over the years she's worked with musicians, artists, models, moms and everything in between.
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. She has worked NYC's famed Fashion Week, as well as Charleston Fashion Week, along with styling many editorial shoots, weddings, music videos, film and theatrical productions.
Lowry is a huge fan of soft, natural textures and color in hair. She loves enhancing and bringing out natural wave with razor cuts. She loves edgy, sexy shags and loose, lived-in hair, as well as modernized classic haircuts that grow out easily and seamlessly. Her favorite compliment from clients is when they say that they didn't really *need* a haircut, that it grew out perfectly, but felt it was probably time to freshen things up. She also truly loves figuring out the best, most perfect fringe for your face (bang lovers unite!).
Although she is not currently taking on new color clients, she happily refers them over to her master colorist and stylist colleagues Hilary and Tamara.
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 warm personality.
Healing + creative arts are her passion, and in her spare time you can find her reading and taking classes on psychic meditation, energetic healing and metaphysical sciences, pulling tarot cards, hanging at home with her soul family (one senior dog, two crazy cats and a cute fiancee), drinking a lot of coffee, and taking long hot salty baths while daydreaming about international travel destinations.
