the details


Growing up, I was obsessed with hair. Everyone around me, including my dad and my barbie dolls had a braid. It took me years to turn this passion into my career though.

I was born and raised in Charlotte, NC. After graduating from Appalachian State University in 2008, I headed west to Telluride, Colorado. While teaching school, I rediscovered my love for hair. Each day my students went home with new hair styles. My boss asked me to style her hair for her wedding and I was hooked. I gave my notice a few days later.

Fast forward to 2019 -- After a decade in Telluride, I sold my first salon and moved to Raleigh with my husband, Sam. I opened Megan Murray Hair Studio soon after and I could not be happier. 

When I'm not working, you will most likely find me in athleisure wear with a taco in hand! Seriously, I find pure joy in a delicious meal and refreshing cocktail on a sunny day. I'm probably supposed to tell you how much I love cooking, reading, etc. Don't get me wrong, I do, but I'm also a huge sucker for a costume, celebrity gossip, and all things Taylor Swift.

I love a good adventure and for a long time, I didn't know how to turn one down! Spontaneous or planned, I have been fortunate to embark on some very unique experiences over the years that I'm always excited to share. I truly have some crazy stories for you...just ask! 

At the end of the day, I strive to live a pretty healthy, sustainable lifestyle and I'm always trying to find ways to incorporate those values into my salon. I believe that your hair is part of your identity. I believe you should love your hair everyday in between appointments. By investing in me as your stylist, not only will you have healthy, beautiful hair, but you can count on a unique experience customized just for you with every single visit. 

I sincerely hope to get to know you and your hair soon!
