Emily credits much of her artistic talent to her mother, an immigrant who, before moving to the United States, was a writer and art teacher in Taiwan. Chen’s inherent love for fashion and art would land her a growing career in the beauty industry.
At the age of 16, Emily enrolled in cosmetology school. Upon graduation, she embarked on a career of continued education (including training in NYC, Boston, Las Vegas, Miami, California, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico), apprenticeship and mentorship that, ultimately, lead her to her position as Artistic Director at Allora Salon & Spa in 2012.
Emily enjoys working with her clients to create styles individualized to their needs and complimentary to their natural features. She finds inspiration for her work through fashion, art and nature. When not in the salon, she travels the United States and Canada as a National Platform Artist and Creative Team Member for ThermaFuse, teaching and inspiring other stylists and promoting her love and passion for the beauty industry. Several times a year, she works as a featured artist in national hair shows and presents in front of thousands of hairdressers across the country sharing the most current trends and techniques in hair design as well as showcasing her work on models for runway and editorial work.
“I’ve gone from loving the artistry of hair to loving the educational aspect of the industry just as well,” Emily said. “Mentoring and inspiring other stylists who are equally passionate about their craft is what gets me out of bed in the morning. The journey of learning is endless and our salon guests appreciate our time and effort spent improving our craft each and every day. It keeps us fresh. It keeps us from getting stale—and nobody likes a stale hairdresser! Whether you’ve been doing hair for ten months or ten years, there is ALWAYS something new to learn.”
Emily brings a new level of confidence and skill to Allora Salon & Spa. Her devotion to the industry is as evident as her dedication to her team members. Check out Emily’s beauty blog!
Look great. Feel better.
Come as you are. At Allora, you’ll find no pretensions, demands or divas (on our staff or in our chairs). That’s not our style. We’re a place for rejuvenation, relaxation and the best results possible.
So sit back, relax and be yourself—your best self—and leave relaxed and refreshed. We look forward to your next visit.
Thank you for the great job on the hair and makeup for our wedding party. The bride said repeatedly that it was “just what I wanted”!- Maura D.
