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 to sit with 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."

Maggie relocated to Santa Rosa Beach from West Tennessee in 2020 with her fiancé. She comes to SkyeBlu Salon with over 10 years of experience and unmatched enthusiasm. When she is not in the salon, you can find her on the beach or in the water with her friends and family.
Favorite Part of Her Job: getting to know my clients and helping them achieve their hair goals! It never feels like work when you enjoy spending time with your clients.
Personal Style: Feminine and Classic
Hobbies: I spend a lot of time at the beach club, I love riding bikes, going out to eat, talking on the phone to my sister, going to events with my fiancé, and snuggling my Weimaraner.
Favorite Salon Product: Lanza Healing Style Dry Shampoo! How could it not be? I use it DAILY!
Biggest Personal Hair Mistake: “I have let almost all of my friends color and even cut my hair! It once was so bleached out that it was coming off in little cotton-like ra tumble weeds blowing through the salon when I dried it.”
Favorite Part of Her Job: The casual relaxed atmosphere where everyone is welcomed and creativity is encouraged. We all work together to make our clients feel welcomed and appreciated. It is such a blessing to LOVE going to work every day because the women you work with love and encourage each other daily.
Personal Style: Comfy and casual. "There is nothing better than your favorite pair of jeans, a great haircut, and good sunglasses."
Hobbies: Going to the beach, of course, spending time with my amazing family, enjoying a glass of wine and a good book and trying to convince the world's bossiest poodle to share the couch.
Favorite Salon Product: Keune Care Absolute Volume Line. These products took my flat lifeless hair and honestly changed it from the inside out. It is healthier than it has ever been before and I can now say that even on the second or third day the volume is STILL there. "I can't hear you over the volume of my hair"
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."
