Ian O’Connell Toggle
Ian O’Connell started his adult life with an exciting career in the music industry where he had the opportunity to experience many different cultures of people and fashion. So on “down time” with his music career Ian decided to attend the Paul Mitchell hair academy… After falling in love with the art of doing hair it became some what of an addiction ” cutting band members hair in hotel bathrooms on days off from shows, constantly dissecting haircuts of servers at restaurants and experimenting on anyone who would let him”! Ian moved to Kansas City on Halloween day of 2007 to start a new chapter of his life with his amazing wife Tara! Ian soon met Safe Ahloe who brought him on as part of his team where Ian hit the ground running. In march of 2010 Ian’s world changed with a perfect little boy named Gavin Ian O’Connell! Continuing to work at Salon Ahloe after a long thought out decision was made “let’s take over the world”… So in August of 2012 Ian and Tara fell in love with a building and pulled the trigger on their dream of opening a salon of their own… Salon Metric!
“I would like to thank my wife and son for all of your support! I couldn’t have done it without you and all my friends and family! Thank you to all of my peers and coworkers for pushing me to take it to the next level! Thank you to Safe Ahloe for believing in me and giving me a jump start when I came to Kansas City! And let’s not forget the best set of clients a guy could want… Without your loyalty and constant word of mouth advertising this would not be possible! Thank you!”
