Emily McAvin

Client Coordinator

How many years have you been in the industry?

I have been in the industry for about 5 years now, but hair has always been in my life.  I’ve grown up with several family members within the hair industry and have loved watching the trends change throughout the years.  I’ve also loved learning more and more about the business side.

What inspires you or feeds your creativity?

I love watching makeover shows and see the incredible transformation that a new haircut or makeup can do and the new confidence it brings that person.  I also love to look at Instagram for new inspiration.

If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?

I would have to choose a a dog.  I don’t know anyone who dislikes dogs they are man’s best friend.  When a dog enters a room it usually puts an instant smile on peoples faces.  Dogs are always treated like another member of the family and are always loyal.

Why Kontempo. ?

I chose Kontempo. because of the great team environment.  Everyone at Kontempo. is compassionate about what they do and are very devoted to making their clients feel their best.  The team at Kontempo. are very close knit not just with each other but with their clients as well.  I enjoy coming to work everyday and interacting with the amazing clients and watching the amazing creativity that comes from the stylists.

What is your absolute favorite place or space?

My favorite place to be is wherever my family is.  No matter where we are or what we are doing we always have a blast together.  If we are out in public we are usually that loud obnoxious table in the corner laughing so hard it hurts.

What is ONE industry product you can’t live without?

I cannot live without concealer! Good concealer can work miracles on covering up dark circles when you haven’t gotten enough sleep. I feel like it can brighten your face and make you look more radiant with it on plus I love the added bonus of hiding any blemishes that might pop up on your skin.
