Hey, hey, Curlfriend!

I'm Meg Conkling, a curly-haired millennial originally from Westchester, New York, now proudly serving the Tampa Bay curlmmunity. 


As an independent woman immersed in hustle culture, I understand the importance of reclaiming your 'Me' time and releasing stress from the demanding world. That's why I've crafted Curly Hair Alchemist to be a cozy and relaxing experience, leaving you feeling recharged and reconnected to yourself.

With over 13 years of experience as a Curl Artist, I'm truly obsessed with what I do and who I do it for! My expertise lies in low maintenance transformation curly haircuts and styling, as well as coaching education on curly hair care. Through our infused methodology, we foster a healthy curly hair mindset, healing hair trauma and empowering you with curl confidence.

While most curl specialists offer a great first visit and a solid maintenance plan, I approach my role as your stylist differently. I work collaboratively with all my guests to create a long-term plan that ensures your shape, health, and style always look fresh. You'll never feel bored or stuck in a routine. I'll be there for you throughout the year, checking in to address any new issues that may arise, and together, we'll overcome them.

When I'm not transforming curlfriends behind the chair, I embrace my inner cat lady with my three ginger tabbies, Rumple, Jenkins, and Jasper. I love spending time at home or planning my next adventure, utilizing my JetBlue SkyMiles for both work and play. When we meet, don't forget to share your Travel Bucket List with me. I'd love to hear about your future travel dreams!

Now that you've gotten to know me a little bit, I'd love to take the time to introduce you to our
New Guest Experiences, this way I can get to know you too!
