When it comes to hairdressing, Carol Lochridge’s personal philosophy is pretty, practical hair! The hairstyle must be something that the client can replicate at home. She calls her approach to styling hair as “street hair”. It should be beautiful AND “doable”.
Carol has strong relationships with many of her clients after her 38 years of service in the industry and loves making sure that all them leave the salon looking and feeling great! With long-held skills in hair cutting and hair coloring an appointment with Carol is always a personal and relaxing experience. Her rapport with her clients is as important to her as the end result of the service. Carol enjoys listening to her client’s wishes about their hair and will tailor the end product to match their needs and lifestyles.
Disenchanted with continuing her college education without a true career focus, Carol began sweeping hair in one of Nashville’s first fine salons in 1976 while she looked for a “real job”. She discovered as she worked alongside her new, talented and fun loving friends on Elliston Place that she would rather become a hairdresser that take a desk job. It was a lucky break for her to bump into what would become her life’s work. She graduated from Hair School Incorporated in 1978 and began her career at Scissor Tails. Later after 23 years at Millers’ Salon she was so happy to join Shannen Lepoma-Bond’s team at Synergy Hair Skin Body where she has worked happily ever after in her private space since 2008.
