STYLIST | Morgan graduated cosmetology school in Dec 2021 & started with us shortly after. She is now on the floor doing hair, nails & waxing. Every year she looks forward to Thanksgiving & loves spending time with her family in Texas. When she's not styling, you can find her playing games, taking walks outside (especially during the fall), or watching TV with her boyfriend. She's an early bird who enjoys Starbucks & frozen chocolate covered blueberries. Be sure to check out her nail art skills!

She is an animal lover caring for her pup named Hope, her cat Polly, Fluffy her snake, & a rat named Crackers. When she has free time she loves to read. She enjoys fall best, especially Halloween.

STYLIST | Gwen has only been with the Chop Shop for 9 years, but has been styling hair for 63 years! She's originally from East Chicago, and has three sons who have given her 4 beautiful granddaughters. When she's not behind the chair, she loves crafting and cuddling with her cat Pete (named after Perdue Pete, where all three of her boys attended). She runs on Dunkin', and says "Starbucks grows hair on your chest, and I don't need any of that!". We're not going to argue with her.
