Margot joined Hair Artistry in 2019 when she was just 4 months old. With her wagging tail, human eyes, innocent smile and persistent "pet me" attitude, she quickly stole the hearts of all of the Hair Artistry clientele. When you walk through the door, she's the first one you'll meet. A kiss and a greet, she'll sit next to you, beg for your pets and never let you stop. If she likes you, you'll know because she'll roll on her back and insist you rub her belly. She'll keep you company while you wait, and even process. By the time your appointment ends, you won't want to leave because you'll be sure to have fallen in love. She's full of personality, and certainly the salon's favorite staff member.
