Our Myrtle Beach Family
Mary Murdoch - Stylist
I was born and grew up in Asheville in the mountains of western North Carolina. Asheville is the kind of place where locals have a “keep Asheville weird” sticker on their car, as do I. I’ve certainly taken a lot of my hometowns uniqueness when I moved to the beach 7 years ago, to live a mile from my retired grandparents.
I’ve been doing hair on and off since 2003, and have always come back to doing beauty. It’s truly where my passion lives and thrives.
I have a wacky personality, I get told by guests I should do stand up comedy. Of which I reply, “only if I can take you and the chair onstage”.
I like to leave my guests with a work of art on their head and a laugh and a smile on their face.
I’m also a make up geek, and worked at Ulta several years almost doing more make up than hair.
Simply put I love color and angles, all of which are encompassed into a good “cut and color” or a bridal make up session. I also love using those colors and and angles to personalize your look to make YOU feel more attractive. I don’t give everyone the same look, it is always personalized to your personality, wants, and lifestyle.
I want you to glow on the inside as well as the outside when you leave my chair.
Simply put, if you want a fashionable color and cut, with a laugh and a smile. Then I’m your gal!
Patty Ranzo - Stylist
I am from Massachusetts with deep southern roots. My dad was born and raised in South Carolina which means I visited my grandparents every year and I knew that someday this would be my home.
Family; I have been married to my husband Rick for 35 wonderful years. We have 2 beautiful daughters Jillian & Jena who went to school at Coastal Carolina and now call South Carolina home as well. Jillian is married and has our only granddaughter Gianna. We love having them close by.
Career; I have been styling hair since 1980. In 1987 I opened a salon I operated for 30 years. Where I employed up to 9 stylists. In that time I became a master stylist with expert training in the following areas;
Perming; by Zotos Coloring; by Goldwell, Redken,Paul Mitchell, L’Oreal,Pravana,Matrix,
Cutting; by Jingles, Toni & Guy, Sassoon, Redken,Paul Mitchell & more
Styling; by Aquage, Redken, Paul Mitchell & more
Keratin; by f450, Keratin complex, Keratin Express And so much more.
When I made the move here it was time for a change, and I gave up hair styling. That lasted all of a year. I missed it so much I had to go back even if only for 1 day a week. It brings me to my happy place.

Brianna Alongi-Alves - Nail Artist
I first moved to Myrtle Beach in 2011 from Florida. I was blessed with an opportunity to attend the Academy of Technology and Academics where I graduated high school with a cosmetology license! I love learning anything I can in this field, but I have put my focus on nail enhancements.
I’m the youngest of a family of 5 and ever since I was a little girl my mom and sisters would let me play with their makeup and paint my nails. It made me feel amazing. As I grew up, I knew I had developed a passion for the beauty industry and this is where I belong doing the same for others.
I have also found an amazing family to work for at Carolina Charm Salon & Spa. I look forward to providing nail services for you!
Pamela Tillett - Stylist
I grew up in West Virginia after high school I moved to North Carolina in 84' where I met my husband. He started his career with the coast guard and we were on the move. Always being stationed near the water that is when I fell in love with the beach. Moving here from Rock Hill, I knew I needed to get back to the beach, so here I am! The beach is my happy place it soothes my soul and most mornings you will find me walking the beach with my best friend Dogee, my labradoodle who loves the beach and meeting people just as much as I do.
I have two sons and four adorable grandchildren- two boys and two girls. They are the joy of my life and I love spending every chance I get with them. It really is true that they are so much easier and more fun than when you had your own children.
I became a hairdresser 20+ years ago, it has always been a passion of mine. Just ask my sisters, they never had a dolls with hair because I was always cutting it off. Making people feel good about themselves and giving back has always been a priority for me. I do have a tender heart for the elderly, children, and animals. So, I always go above and beyond to make a difference. I love getting to know people and hearing their story- everyone has one.
If I had to choose my favorite service it would be haircuts, its that satisfaction of seeing what I have accomplished that I absolutely love. I am old school, I also love doing a good shampoo roller set.
I look forward to getting to know my future guests and making you feel great about yourself!
