Troy and Micah opened The Salon at Wellington Arms in January 2013. Focused on exceptional guest relations, they work diligently at providing a stellar experience by hiring and retaining competent staff who are continuously trained, using and offering the finest hair care and color on the market, and maintaining a beautifully decorated salon with state-of-the art equipment. Their goal?  To exceed your expectations.







Troy Wallace

Passionate. Personable. Proficient.

If you’re a client, you’ll agree Troy is all of the above.  Everyone appreciates his consistency and steadfast, easy disposition. It was inevitable he’d become a salon owner:  He’s at the top of his game and in constant demand. His work speaks for itself.

Micah Wallace

Creative.  Compassionate. Charismatic.

A tremendously talented stylist, Micah is passionate about his craft with drive to continuously grow.  You can be assured he’ll deliver his very best, every time. His guests receive his undivided attention to detail and expertise, leave his chair seeing and feeling the benefits, all the while enjoying his engaging and magnetic personality.



Alan Garrett

A prominent member of The Salon at Wellington Arms, Alan is the previous owner of  Salon A and prior partner at Timothy’s. He’s one of Lexington’s most renowned and respected stylists.  It’s no secret why he has a large and loyal following: It’s his unmistakable talent and genuine personality.  We’re honored he’s part of our team.

Chelsea Monaghan

This Philly girl’s got it.  Rather new (2014) to Lexington, Chelsea graduated from cosmetology school as an apprentice in January 2017, and joined us to learn, grow, and complete the required work experience to take her State Board Exam and become a Master Cosmetologist in October 2017.  We’re cheering her on, as she has taken on everything we’ve tasked her with – – starting with the front desk, and then on to becoming Alan Garrett’s assistant — smart move, to learn from a Lexington hair legend.  We’re glad she’s here.

Don’t hesitate to call on Chelsea.  We believe in her.

Jackie Palmerton

Jackie is an experienced Redken specialist, devoted to listening to your needs. You can always expect to have a caring and honest conversation with this down to Earth artist. While devoted to all hair care needs, she also leads the industry as a top lash technician in Lexington. She stays intrigued and invested in new ventures, as she is now a certified Microblading Artist. Jackie has the ability to boost your confidence with every visit. 


John McGinnis Hoover

They say, “There’s not a word yet for old friends who’ve just met”.  It happens when you meet someone with common values and perspectives; there’s a sense of familiarity despite the short amount of time you’ve known each other.

John joined us in August 2017. Originally from Ann Arbor, MI, he previously owned a day spa for five years, was a lead educator at The Aveda Institute in Hoover, AL and most recently taught at The Summit Salon Academy here in Lexington.  Ready to return to his place behind the chair, we’re elated he chose one here at The Salon at Wellington Arms.  He has quickly become an integral part of our team, consistently delivering color, cuts and styles that delight even the most discriminating clients.  He shares our goal of providing an exceptional guest experience.  He delivers it with communication and expertise

Come and meet our new old friend.

Daisy Mendoza

Many of our hair clients feel their salon visit isn’t complete without an impeccable manicure or pedicure with Daisy.  We agree! Her personality is warm, caring, soothing, might we add her services are perhaps healing? We assure you they are most enjoyable.  She takes great pride in her work and is one of the best at what she does.  You’ll find her delightful and we suggest you add yourself to her long list of extremely satisfied clients.
