Owner, Texture Expert
Lenise is a mom to a bright young man, a sister, daughter, veteran, and a professional stylist since 2008, graduating from Empire Beauty School. In addition, she is a L’Oreal educator for Mizani, and a Cosmetology program board member and mentor at the Highland Springs Advanced Career Education Center. Prior to that, Lenise spent 20 yrs in the corporate arena, which has undoubtedly served to make her a well-rounded stylist and business owner. It was also the catalyst for Parlour’s launch in 2016.
Raised in Richmond, Virginia, Lenise was captured and kept by the hair care industry some time ago. As a child she was fascinated by the reinvention of women at a stylist’s hands. They would come in small wrecks, and leave restored, with a new found sense of confidence. To be able to inspire self-love in a woman through her everyday work, is incredibly rewarding. Lenise is a life long learner, and is committed to continuous education in order to meet all of your hair care needs.
“It is my honor to accompany you on your journey and provide you the best possible salon experience.” ~ Lenise
