Karen Parsons
Owner and Creative Director
Karen Parsons - Owner & Creative DirectorYou 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 Stylist
I realized my dream to begin my career behind the chair before I could even drive! I started a summer job in the salon and then became the star operator of this trendy salon in Cary. After mastering many modern tricks, like call waiting and e-mail, I graduated from the Aveda Institute of Chapel Hill in 2009. There I fell in love with Aveda and never looked back. I feel that attention to detail and communication are key to customizing a look for you. One thing I will always enjoy is how every day is different. From cuts, color, updos and makeup, I am committed to continuing my education to fit current trends and techniques that will make you look your best!

When I am not in the salon making you look your best I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going to the beach or shopping till I drop!

Cheers ! I look forward to seeing you soon.

Alli Taylor -- Senior StylistIn 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
Master 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!

Morgan Comer
Senior Stylist
My journey with The Hair and Face Lounge started in June of 2015! I am lucky enough to have been born and raised in Holly Springs and hope to always call it home. Since October of 2016 I have been married to my awesome husband, Carson. We have three fur babies, Cudi, Jax, and Whiskey! I’ve had a passion and love for hair since a very young age; always practicing on family and friends. I started cosmetology school at the Aveda Institute-Chapel Hill. After graduating I began working in non-Aveda salons and quickly realized how much I missed the Aveda lifestyle. I was lucky enough to stumble upon this funky little salon and fell for the charm and the eclectic atmosphere! My favorites services are balayage and vivids and also just love to make a change and put a smile on my clients faces, so book with me for your dream hair!

Cortney Strickland
Stylist
Cortney is a Raleigh native with a love for the science of hair. After graduating from UNCW, Cortney enrolled in cosmetology school to begin her career as a hairstylist. Her focus is in men’s cuts, vivid colors, and balayage. She plans on pursuing a Master’s in Cosmetic Chemistry later in life. Her favorite things include cats, napping, and all things 90’s.

Annmarie Buchanan
Stylist
Originally from Florida I didn’t know what I wanted to do. It wasn’t until 2013 when I moved to Cary, North Carolina that I met the wonderful girls at The Hair and Face Lounge. I immediately fell in love with everything hair and knew it was what I wanted to do. Every day is new and exciting and never a dull moment. I can’t wait to have you in my chair and help you become the best version of yourself.

I’ve been lucky enough to be a receptionist at The Hair and Face Lounge for over two years now, and hope to be lucky enough to join the salon as a stylist for many years to come. I was born into a salon that my mom (our receptionist, Christy) owned and I’ve had a love for the industry ever since I can remember. I graduate from Mitchells Academy January 2018 and can’t wait to follow in my mom’s footsteps of making people look and feel beautiful!
