MEET OUR STYLISTS


Joe Williams, Salon Owner - After 15 years in Southern California, I returned to my home town to be closer to my family and build St.Augustine's best color salon!  All of my life I've been creative and tried to surround myself with people of similar  minds.  Hair is my next medium!  I love trying new things and creating a new look for my clients. As a hairstylist, I want to help you look your best and keep your look fresh. I keep my eyes on the current trends and want that to show in my work.  We have an amazing staff and hope to serve St. Augustine for many years to come.
Alex Herring, Salon Manager - Being born and raised in St. Augustine, Florida I have a passion for this town, it's history and its people.  I've been in the beauty industry since High School starting out as hospitality working my way up to Salon Manager.  I grew to love the industry and finally after 9 years I decided to go to Cosmetology school.  My passion for my work and craft continues to grow everyday.  Seeing my clients happy and confident after their services makes me strive to be the very best hair stylist in the business. 


Sommer Smith - I am a fun loving, outgoing St. Augustine native that knows this town and loves it's people. I have been in the industry for fifteen years but have had a love for meeting new people my whole life!  I place high value on listening to my clients needs. As a stylist, my ears must work as well as my hands. 
I specialize in Hi-lighting and working with long hair. If you want to be blonde, you want to be in my chair! 
Wade Lee- I'm a trained master hair cutter and former salon owner with over fifteen years experience who offers clients a combination of professional skills and artistic vision.  I'm passionate about hair education, as a former National Educator for Red Door Spa and session hair styling educator at Make Up Forever Academy I love seeing students passion ignite through the courses I teach. I recently relocated to Saint Augustine, Florida and joined the hair team at The JW Salon. My editorial and fashion background in New York City has allowed me to broaden my skill set and  condition my eye to offer each guest a unique  and personal experience tailored cutting, coloring, and styling personal to them. 
Maria Wright - I am originally from Chicago, Illinois. I moved to Florida in 2002 to go to hair school with all intentions of moving back to Chicago when I graduated. Then, I fell in love with St.Augustine! 15 years later, I'm still here and more passionate than ever about hair. I'm excited to have joined the JW team and to continue my goal to "make the world a more beautiful place, one person at a time!"
Teresa Hunt - Born and raised in Orlando, FL, I moved to St. Augustine in the summer of 2017 and I'm in love with the area. Loving my St.Augustine clients! I graduated with Honors from Paul Mitchell Academy in 2005, specializing in dimensional color. From a single process color, to highlights, lowlights, block color, ombre, and balayage. Schedule a color appointment with me and love your hair again!
Heather Randel - I am a long-time resident of St. Augustine and am blessed to have made my home here.  I joined the stylist community in 2019 to help others find and honor their beauty.  I believe that every person has a unique style to offer, and it is my passion to help my clients find it and feel their best.  Beauty starts on the inside, and I love knowing that my clients leave my chair connected to that inner confidence and feeling good about themselves.  I am so fortunate to have found a salon home that offers a fun family-like environment, continued growth and learning, and the daily opportunity to express my creative passion.
Liz Lampley - I am originally from the Bay Area of Northern California and moved to Florida in 1994.  I consider Florida my home since this is where I married, raised my 3 children, and have resided for most of my life. The St. Augustine community is where my heart lives.  I had the wonderful opportunity in the past year and a half to give back to the Cosmetology Community as a Cosmetology Instructor at First Coast Technical College where I received my license in 2013.  My passion to educate & learn will always continue through my career.  Although I do enjoy all aspects of color, haircuts, and styling, I specialize in short hairstyles for women’s and men’s cuts. Listening to the client is extremely important while any client is in my chair so we can work together, understand, and keep the end goal in mind.  Most importantly, at the end of each service it is important to me that my clients leave the salon feeling amazing having had the best experience possible.
