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’s hair and face needs. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
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!
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!
I graduated from the Aveda Institute in the far off land of Provo, Utah. Originally from Roosevelt, Utah. I finally found my home at The Hair and Face Lounge in beautiful Cary, North Carolina in July of 2012. When I’m not at the salon I enjoy spending time with my baby Odin, who is the cutest Border Collie in the world. I am so grateful to work aside these incredible girls, and continue my passion for the beauty industry with Aveda. I’m looking forward to being your day maker!
I have always had a passion for hair. When was given a tour of the Aveda Institute in Chapel Hill it was love at first sight. I immediately enrolled into the cosmetology school and began to learn the latest techniques and also gained an understanding of how to make my clients feel special. Upon graduation, in April of 2013, I was fortunate enough to join the Hair and Face Lounge and it immediately felt like home. I continue to enhance my skills and would love to meet and take care of your every hair and nail needs in the near future!
You could say cosmetology has always been in my blood. As long as I can remember, I have been cutting my Barbie’s and doll’s hair, along with my own. I have been the guest coordinator at The Hair and Face Lounge since my senior year of high school. I am scheduled to graduate from the Aveda Institute in late 2013. I can’t wait to be a part of the stylist team here. I know that doing hair will be a great creative outlet for me and helping others feel better about themselves will just add to the joy I will get out of doing something I love.
I come from a small beachy town called Stuart, Florida. I moved here in August of 2013. The Hair and Face Lounge makes me feel at home. I attend Cary High School and some of my favorite hobbies are surfing, basketball, and hanging out with friends.
I graduate in the year 2015 and I plan on attending The Aveda Institute. One day I hope to join the stylist of The Lounge until then I’ll be taking your calls and greeting you with a big smile! “It’s a Great Day At The Hair And Face Lounge!”
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. He is an all-time favorite with everyone who paces though our doors. Only the occasional squirrel gets a rise out of him. Come see what everyone is talking about.
