Hannah Gore

Level 4 Stylist & Salon Owner

“It is a beautiful thing when a career and a passion come together.”

 As the owner of On the Avenue Salon and Blowout Bar, I am completely devoted to offering the most unique salon experience in Waco!  I am a proud alum of Baylor University, graduating with my Bachelors of Business Administration in Entrepreneurship and I have over 7 years of experience in the beauty and hair industry.

Among many things, I am extremely passionate about startup businesses, investment, economic growth and development, and entrepreneurship. My creative passions are expressed in my art of doing hair, a love I discovered at the age of sixteen. It has been a dream to open my own business and now it is a reality. I am passionate about health, fitness, living life effectively, and walking in faith. I am so thankful for all of my friends and family who positively influence my life everyday.

Samantha Strand


As soon as I say hello, you’ll know that I’m not from around here. I grew up in Minnesota, and my dreams are similar to Hannah’s, in that I’m studying Business and Entrepreneurship at Baylor, hoping to own or run a business centered in health and style.

I’m serious about my education, so when I’m not here, I’m probably studying. I also love going to Baylor football games (Go Bears!) and being with my new Texas friends.

Everything we do here is a shared passion of mine, and I’m here to help you have a great experience at On the Avenue.
