Karen Parsons - Owner & Creative DirectorKaren Parsons
Owner and Creative Director

You could say I was born to own a beauty salon. In fact, that’s where my parents first met. My mother Karen Parsons, my namesake, was a shampoo girl for her sister Elaine in the early 1960’s at Erna and Yvette’s Coiffures in Lakewood, Ohio. My mother didn’t know it at the time, but Yvette was her future mother-in-law. She was set up on a blind date with my father while working at the salon. The rest is history!

When I was little, my grandmother and mother taught me almost everything I know about beauty. The rest I’ve learned on my own. Over the years, I’ve traveled the globe to continue my education and compete in numerous hair and make up competitions. I enjoy what I do and love making people feel and look their best.

That’s why I’ve decided to follow in the footsteps of my mother and open my own salon. It’s an adventure that I would like you to share with me. Please call, stop by or just hang out at The Hair and Face Lounge. Check out some original 60’s Salon memorabilia as well as everything you need for today‚Äôs hair and face needs. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.

Ashley Johnson - Master StylistAshley Johnson

On a network not yet developed in 1975, Ashley Blum was the star of a once, soon to be popular sitcom; The Braid E. Bunch. She then became the star operator of a trendy salon in Cary, NC. After mastering many modern magic tricks, like call waiting and e-mail, this sexy Capricorn is hip to hair as well. She is a graduate of the Aveda Institute in Chapel Hill and is an amazing stylist, and a wonderful addition to our family behind the chair!Ashley Johnson

Alli Taylor -- Senior StylistAlli Taylor
Senior Stylist

In July of 2010 I began my journey at The Lounge. Working alongside Karen just seemed right, seeing as she has been our family hair stylist since I was 2! Its been an enjoyable journey on my way to earning my chair next to the best hairstylists in Cary. As I followed in the footsteps of my peers I discovered my love and passion for AVEDA and I cant wait to have you in my chair!Alli Taylor

Lexi Hanlon - ReceptionistLexi Hanlon
Senior Stylist

This groovy salon is what started my fire for this industry. Working here as a young, naive, and impressionable 17 year old, the girls here blackmailed me into getting into the industry and things have really gone up hill ever since. Cosmetology is clearly a passion of mine that I get to see every day as I create new works of art. I have a constant hunger for furthering my education, as I know that this is a career where the learning never ends. Doing hair is a great creative outlet for me and helping others feel better about themselves just adds to the joy I get out of doing something I love!Lexi Hanlon

Morgan ComerMorgan Comer

My name is Morgan Comer and I started my journey at the Hair and Face lounge in June 2015! I have always had a passion and love for hair and I decided to start to pursue cosmetology in 2013 at the Aveda institute in Chapel Hill. Since then I had tried non-Aveda Salons but I soon realized a missed the amazing message, products, and color that Aveda brings. I then was lucky enough to stumble upon this funky little salon and fell for the charm and the awesome atmosphere!

Christy & Bailey RhodesChristy & Bailey Rhodes
Guest Coordinators

This North Carolina Salon needed a little Alabama touch so Karen hired two Bama Belles as receptionists. They’re a mother and daughter duo. Christy did hair for 25 years and Bailey was raised in the Beauty Shop from the first week of her life! We absolutely love The Hair and Face Lounge and feel lucky to be working with these talented Ladies. Bailey plans to attend The Aveda Institute after she graduates high school in 2017.

The fun begins with Cooter. Rescued from a life of farm living and dumpster diving, Cooter loves his job as The Lounge’s official greeter and head security guard.
