My name is Lacey Phifer, I have been a Hair Stylist for 21 years. The first 10 were very rough. For the first 5 I worked at a chain doing only cuts all day. After 5 years I realized I wasn’t happy only doing one thing and decided to try booth rent, I also thought I would make way more by being my “own boss”. I thought I could do better being on my own. Boy was I WRONG! For 5 more years I was barely able to pay for groceries and daycare. I was barely making $13,000 a year my husband was paying everything else. The struggle was real as they say! Then one day a friend of mine invited me to come with her to another salon, where she was getting her hair done for her wedding. While we were there getting her hair done I noticed a class going on at the salon. I never knew that there were salons that did classes! I thought the ONLY education you got after school was Continuing Ed. I was so intrigued, but scared to change. I waited another 6 months, and then one day I took the plunge and put in my application!
Chris and Amy took a huge leap of faith hiring me, knowing I had been in the industry for so long and had my own bad habits. There were a lot of ups and downs at first, but I learned more in my first year at Salon Naman than I had in my 10 previous years. I think after my first year I made over $30,000. I had never made that much in my life. After 3 years I surpassed my husband and was the breadwinner in my household! Around year 5 I was a level 4, a Trainer in the salon and became a Redken Certified Hair Colorist.
I have attended multiple classes in New York, been to several Symposiums now, have taken a multitude of Summit classes and have gotten to see so many amazing Stage Artists at our salon. Last year, after several years of teeter tottering on the edge of 6 figures, I surpassed my goal!
When I went to the salon to put in my application that day 10 years ago, I was ready to give up on the hair industry all together and go back to school to become a dental hygienist. It was either this new salon was going to work, or I was out… I am grateful that Salon Naman took a chance on me and I am so grateful for the coaching from Summit. The growth I have had being in a Summit Salon has surpassed my wildest dreams. Now I am here to help you surpass YOUR own wildest dreams here at Salon Naman!
Hello! I love being a SN Trainer! It is super amazing to watch a stylist come into our company and grow personally and professionally more than they ever thought was possible! I am so grateful that I get to be on this journey!
Hi! I am so honored to say I’ve been with Salon Naman for 13 years and have loved it every step of the way! I most enjoy doing is helping the Jr. Stylist develop a sustainable career though our Jr. Stylist program. Watching the growth journey day after day from my efforts of “passing it on” feeds my soul!
Hello! I am honored to be a part of the Salon Naman Leadership Team! I have been with Salon Naman for 4 years and a part of the Leadership Team for a year. Before becoming a stylist I was an art teacher for 8 years. After losing joy in my previous career, I decided to attend cosmetology school. After graduating cosmetology school, I came to Salon Naman. I was looking for a place where I could continue learning and growing, as well as a place that gives back to the community. I found all of that in Salon Naman! I am grateful and excited to be a part of the Leadership Team where I can help grow our other team members, our Salon Company, and our community!
I am so lucky & grateful I get to serve our Tribe and Guests on the SN Leadership Team!
4 and a half years ago I started at our sister company, Nao Leigh Boutique, and fell in love. I fell in love with Nao Leigh's Mission, being a good teammate, creating content, and bettering my personal and professional best. After attending our Human Trafficking Awareness Event, 3 trips to Atlanta Market, and having a part in carrying out Nao Leigh's 2019 CN2 Commercial Shoot, I wanted MORE!
At Nao Leigh, I had the opportunity to experience something larger than myself and quickly wanted to know more about Salon Naman. Salon Naman gave me the opportunity to continue to grow in content creation and in a totally new skillset of Leadership. Today, I serve as Salon Naman's Jr. Salon Coordinator - A position I continue to learn, grow, serve, create, and have a "how did I get so lucky" moment every day in.
My greatest joy is getting to be a cheerleader for our Tribe & Company and having the opportunity to serve our Guests and Community with Good Vibes and Happy Hair!
