Audrey Lane
Master Stylist at AOC Hilltop / AOC Ghent
Originally from the Chicagoland area, I traded in the wind and my snow shovel for the ocean and a beach chair! I've been a licensed cosmetologist since 2006 and I love being a part of this ever evolving industry. I believe staying current on my education is important. It doesn't get any better than listening to live music and being outdoors with my four legged pal, Mayze.

As far as I can remember I always knew I wanted to be a hairstylist. It wasn’t just about the art of hair, but about the freedom to be 100% myself. I got my license in 2013 and I’ve been doing hair ever since. Being a hairstylist isn’t just work for me, it’s my passion. When I’m with my guests, I listen carefully , I connect and I try my best to make their self expression become a reality through hair.
