Smith’s responsibilities include coordinating the salon’s schedule and appointment book. She answers all incoming calls and makes daily reminder calls for clients. She keeps up with hair care information and uses her knowledge to update the Raleigh hair salon’s “Hair Academy 101” Blog (latherhairsalon.wordpress.com). She also pays special attention to the front of the salon, making sure all the products are well organized and answering any questions or concerns clients may have.
Smith recently hired a part-time coordinator, Meagan Spangler, to help with the Raleigh hair salon during evening hours and on Saturdays.
Originally from Raleigh, Schuyler Smith moved to San Diego, California, after graduating from Western Carolina University in 2006 with a degree in criminal justice. She also served as vice president of Delta Zeta sorority at WCU and as a role-model blogger.
In San Diego, Smith worked for an insurance company and in various fine-dining establishments where she rose quickly to team leader. She returned to Raleigh in October 2008 and worked as a coordinator for “It’s Just Lunch,” a dating service for busy singles, until IJL was sold and moved to Florida. Her former manager introduced her to Lather Hair Salon’s owner Jessica Williams.
“I am super excited to work at Lather because I love keeping up with the different styles and trends people can have with their hair,” Smith said. “Your hairstyle can make you feel so unique and fresh. I love being in an environment that leaves people walking out the door happy. And the girls here are beyond welcoming. It’s such a fun atmosphere to be in.”
