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’s 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.

Kelly Stalls
My love for hair began in Kindergarten when I would do my own hair every morning before class. As I got older, not only did I do my own hair, I started doing my friends hair. I later made my passion my career in 2016. I love making others feel good about themselves and enjoy keeping up to date with the latest techniques. When I’m not doing hair, I love spending time with my husband, family, friends and my dog Daisy, as well as going to the beach.
