Beauty without Compromise.
Anna Michelle Jackson-Petry grew up in the hair salon. With her mother Margaret as a stylist in Ireland, and later in Connecticut, as a child and teenager she accompanied her mom to work. Through watching her mom work, she fell in love with the idea of being a hairdresser. Not only did she want to make people feel beautiful and renewed by their hair services, she was also interested in the education aspect of the industry. Early on in her own career, passion burning, she became an educator. She had a goal of changing the industry.
She wanted to create a place that combined the luxurious salon experience with the knowledge of highly trained stylists. And AMP studios does just that. A salon that opened in November 2021, AMP has already established itself as a salon like no other. Coming from owning a full service spa and salon for the past 15 years, Anna Michelle knew she wanted to do something different with the new studio. She strived to keep that high end, glamorous environment of a private salon, from the second you walk in the door, all the way back to the shampoo bowl, back over to the stylist’s stations, and all the way until you walk back out feeling like a million bucks.
AMP Studio is a collaboration of seasoned stylists, who work together to support each other to create some of the most beautiful hair in Loudoun County, while still valuing and uplifting the experience of the guest. Our stylists can combine their extensive education with state-of-the-art technology to really amplify their services. AMP studios is a place for women and men to come and feel relaxed, beautiful, edgy, empowered, confident, sexy and everything in between. The salon is chic, yet still is comfortable and welcoming. It just feels like going over to your best girlfriend’s house to chat over a glass of wine or cup of tea. All the perks of a high-end salon, with the warm environment of a familiar place.
