Kiley Ellsworth opened the doors to what would soon become Bastrop County's premier salon. Avery McKay quickly made a name for itself with talented stylist who are passionate about the industry & committed to success. Determined to offer Bastrop County residents professional services that rivaled Austin salons, Ellsworth put together an innovative team that continues to grow professionally. Within the first three years, Avery McKay has garnered two "Best of Bastrop County" awards as the top salon. For the past two years one of Ellsworth's stylists has been voted "Best of Bastrop County" & "Runner-up." The goal has always been to offer an alternative to the upscale Austin salons. "The tide has definitely turned during the past year," Ellsworth noted. "Not only have we seen an influx of locals, but we have customers from Austin coming out to Bastrop."
Also unique and relatively unknown is where the name Avery McKay came from. Ellsworth wanted a way to combine her two passions - her family and her career - and chose the middle names of her two daughters to become the salon's namesake. The staff at Avery McKay is looking forward to their best year ever. As their appointment books continue to fill, maintaining the top spot may be the least of their worries.
