Born and raised in Irmo, South Carolina..I grew up in this town that I love. After graduating high school in 2000, I studied Business and English at Midlands Technical College, and was sure I was destined for big things. I tried my hand in a few career areas, most of which landed me behind desks. In 2009 I decided the beauty industry was where I wanted to go and after a full 2 days of deliberation I signed up for cosmetology school. I was a single mother to a 3 year old and worked at night bartending to make beauty school a reality.
In 2010, with my cosmetology degree in hand, I started The Velvet Edge. I put all my focus into bridal makeup and hair and spent my first few years out of school growing in the wedding world. I worked at a few salons until I was finally able to make The Velvet Edge a full service hair salon in 2014. I couldn’t have done it without the help of my husband, Ryan. We’ve been together since 2012 and he is the love of my life. This is confirmed everyday, but especially since he's gone all in with me in raising that child who is now a teenager.
I am always on a journey to improve my skills and learn all that I can. I’m so passionate about all that is beauty. From learning the ever changing blonding techniques to applying a flawless makeup look, it's all in for me. But when it comes to brides…I’m addicted to the feeling I get when I can help a bride look and feel her absolute best on her wedding day.
I am an organized planner with a creative, artistic mind. I believe in the never-ending quest of self-development and doing what makes you happy. And I believe that the best way to be beautiful is to be yourself.

I first met Meagan when she worked at a different salon. I liked her so much I followed her when she opened The The Velvet Edge. She always listens and makes sure she understands exactly what I want. She gives honest and constructive feedback if I'm not sure what to ask for. I also find her extremely warm and friendly, which is something I've always looked for in a stylist. I hope she never moves because I don't know what I'd do! -Guen K.
