Lisa and her husband of 21 years have three great kids, and she is thankful for the constant support they give her as the owner of SkyeBlu Salon. How did she choose her profession? Her grandfather was a barber, and she grew up having her hair cut at the kitchen table and watching him work. "He was a very successful barber, actually credited with inventing The Flat-top Hairstyle in Atlanta." The salon was a dream of hers that came into realization in 2008, and it's been nonstop since.
"When people are in the salon, I want them to feel welcome and at home. We are professionals, but I want it to feel like a place you see friends and family, and sit to have a cup of coffee and be comfortable while you're getting your services done."
Favorite Part of Her Job: "I love having the opportunity to have a positive influence on people and how they feel about themselves. I like being able to help with their self confidence. When they feel better, it brings me great joy."
Personal Style: Simple and quick; "With three kids, I have to be able to get ready fast!"
Hobbies: Watching my kids play sports, spending time at the beach, and "Great Southern and I have a great romance."
Favorite Salon Product: Keune's Salt Mousse ("Adds great texture and volume to any hair type!")
Biggest Personal Hair Mistake: "When I was newly married, I volunteered to be a hair model for a hair show for my boss in Baltimore, or somewhere, and I told them very explicitly 'don't cut my hair off.' And he cut my hair into a mullet. I came home and my husband said, 'I thought I married a girl....' The worst part was, I had to be in two weddings with this horrible haircut."

What is your biggest personal hair mistake?
In high school I thought a temporary color would be, well, temporary. And I decided to go for a nice strawberry blonde that turned ORANGE on my fresh highlights. So for WEEKS I had a bright orange streak down the middle of my head. Somewhere out there are photos that I hope stay buried forever.
