Barbi Lee - Owner, NBR Certified Artist, Redken Color Certified

Barbi began her career in 2000 after moving home to Florence from Nashville, Tennessee. Her interest in expressing herself artistically lead to choosing the beauty industry as her home. After 8 years of developing her skills and building a solid clientele, she decided to open her own business. In 2007, her dream became reality. That dream was to create a salon where quality of services and excellence in customer service were built with a team centered atmosphere as the foundation. Over the past 13 years,  her love for teaching and mentoring has led her to create a cohesive team of talented, dedicated, and passionate stylists that share common goals and vision for specializing in haircolor and extension services.  Her artistry and passion is her driving force. It allows her to look forward to growing and learning with her team in our amazing, ever-changing industry and sharing that knowledge to make every guest feel confident and beautiful!

Angel Jones - Business manager

Angel wants to live in a world where 40 is the new 20, pale is the new tan and you get paid to watch movies.  From DHEC to economic development, property management to human resources, she finally found her professional home here at the SALON of Florence.  With more than 28 years of supervisory, administrative and customer service work under her belt, she’s been managing the SALON since 2008. Before the SALON she hadn’t owned a can of hairspray since the 90’s and was new to makeup and hair products in general.  Now she loves all things hair and fashion!
Professionally, it is her ultimate goal to establish and foster a work environment that is harmonious, where everyone is treated fairly and encouraged to become their best self.

When she’s not crunching numbers or catching up with clients you can find her at a concert (because live music is life), tending to her furbutt babies or in a cozy spot with her nose in a book.

Bekah Brown - Operations Manager

Bekah began her journey in the hair world behind the chair but quickly discovered that her joy is actually being the salon’s first point of contact. Bekah is motivated by working to give clients the best possible service as well as guiding her salon team. Her professionalism shines through in every situation and her attention to detail makes your experience seamless. Her match making skills ensure not only convenience with time but, more importantly, stylist compatibility.

Bekah and her husband are anglers and love being out on the water. She’s also into fine woodworking which is a great creative outlet where she makes furniture for her home. She looks forward to expanding her family in the future but for now, enjoys snuggles with her two yorkies, Piper & Nahla.

Dianna Zorn - Master Stylist

Dianna has always had a passion for hair color and started her journey in the cosmetology industry in 2008 at the SALON of Florence. From the start of her career she has been dedicated to her continuing education and keeping up to date with the latest trends in the beauty industry. She has attended numerous local, state and national classes and events including the Exchange in New York and national hair show in Las Vegas. She specializes in a variety of techniques ranging from short sassy cuts to the palest and most dimensional blondes and balayage. She believes communication is key and has a customized consultation with every client in order to achieve their best look. Her priority is to please her clients and give them the ability to recreate their looks at home. Doing hair is not just a job, it’s a passion that allows her to easily be dedicated to each and every client.

Ivy Craig - Senior Stylist

Ivy has been working for the SALON of Florence since July of 2014, fresh out of high school after getting her license through her local vocational school. She is now a Senior Stylist who specializes in her passion, color!  She loves educating her guests with product and styling knowledge.  Her goal with each guest is to bring out their own natural beauty while maintaining the optimal health of their hair and equip them with the tools to recreate their looks at home.  She’s a total product and treatment nerd!  

If she’s not in the salon you can find her snuggling all of her fur babies or enjoying the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets with her husband out and about for whatever hunting season is in!

Hannah Watson - Stylist

Since she was young, Hannah has held a strong interest for hair color and beauty transformations.  After she spent years trying to find her niche, she stumbled upon the perfect opportunity to enter the industry.  Her passion for art and design have been a natural fit behind the chair and in the salon.  Every client is a new canvas just waiting to be transformed, but her priority is always making sure your experience exceeds expectations.
Outside of the salon, you can find this Boss Mama gyming it up, tending to her plant babies, or creating new art for her home, but her greatest masterpiece is her adventurous little boy.

Lillie Odom - Associate

My name is Lillie Odom and I’m an associate at the Salon of Florence! You might have seen me assisting Barbi or Dianna. I have been working at the Salon for a little over a year now and I can’t believe how fast it has flown by! Not only that, I can’t believe how much I’ve learned, changed and grown in my time there. A few of my favorite things to work with would be shampooing, an excellent blowdry and helping my stylist foil from time to time! I'm working to finish up my associate program soon & then I will be on to having my own chair as a professional stylist! I can’t wait to see you in my chair!
