Get to know Lissie
Lissie is originally from Vienna Georgia and began working in a hair salon at the age of 13 cleaning brushes, sweeping and shampooing hair for the salon’s stylists. Lissie has over 30 years of salon experience and she is licensed and has worked in Georgia, Hawaii, California, London England, and now Florida.
After high school she started an apprenticeship at a salon in Albany Georgia, named Mack Hair. Moving next to Atlanta and working as an apprentice ultimately lead her to cosmetology school while simultaneously apprenticing at Toni & Guy in Alpharetta. Lissie graduated from cosmetology school in 2003, and completed every educational program offered by Toni & Guy as well as becoming an educator.
If that doesn’t already sound like a busy life for a young 20-something, why not move to Hawaii? So in ’03 Lissie spent over a year working in a cool salon on the ocean in Kihei, Maui called Stranza Hair Studio, while of course enjoying the island life. From Hawaii to Buckhead, Atlanta at Stan Milton Hair Salon.
Then 2005 she decided to try her luck in Hollywood! Lissie was hired at a Hermosa Beach hair salon and really loved living on the beach again. While in LA she met a lot of really cool people in the TV and film industry and acquired a great deal of new experience adding to her ever growing knowledge. The LA traffic was the only downfall of that experience, but also being so far away from her family in Georgia. Lissie already had an established base of friends, family, and salons in Atlanta to return to. However, she wouldn’t stay for long!
A year later in 2006 Lissie packed up and moved across The Pond to London England. There Lissie found herself working at a fabulous salon called Lockonego on Kings Road with some extremely talented people. They worked mostly as celebrity stylists and also in print and film work. She made my way back to the U.S. in 2012 continuing her career for several years in Atlanta. It was there that she met her boyfriend and found her way to Ormond Beach.
With nearly 20 years of exceptional, and impressively diverse, experience we are pleased to introduce Lissie as a stylist with Idéologie Salon.
