Job: Stylist at Shear Love
Status: Has a boyfriend
With her combat boots, black eyeliner, and lone wolf tattoo, Amber is swimming — no, moshing — in bad-girl punk attitude. But then she breaks into a wide, infectious smile and you catch a glimpse of the girl who was a school cheerleader for 10 years in Gwinnett before she made good her escape. Now an Aveda Institute graduate and Reynoldstown resident, Amber plans to be a career hair stylist. She also plans to spend a lifetime adding to her tat collection, which now includes a Candyland-themed sleeve on her left arm. "I'll stop when I die," she says, cheerfully.
