Lather Hair Salon Announces Staff Promotion

Schuyler Smith, Lather Hair Salon's new salon manager

April 17, 2010 (RALEIGH, NC) – Jessica Williams, owner and senior stylist at Lather Hair Salon in Raleigh, announced this week that receptionist Schuyler Smith has been promoted to Salon Manager.

A Raleigh native, Smith, 25, moved to San Diego, CA, after graduating from Western Carolina University in 2006 with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. She also served as vice president of Delta Zeta sorority at WCU and is a member of two academic honors fraternities. While at Western, she was asked to be a student role model for incoming students by blogging on WCU’s homepage and being featured on posters, giving advice to new students.

In San Diego, Schuyler (pronounced “Sky-ler”) Smith worked for an insurance company where she rose quickly to office educator. She returned to Raleigh in October 2008 and worked as a coordinator for “It’s Just Lunch,” a dating service for busy singles, until the service was sold and relocated to Florida. Her former manager introduced her to Williams.

“Schuyler definitely deserves the promotion,” Williams said. “She is what Lather stands for: the finest customer service in a professional, no-attitudes atmosphere. She exceeds my expectations every day while treating each and every person in the salon, clients and employees, with the utmost respect and importance.”

As salon manager, Smith’s responsibilities include all the duties she had as a full-time salon coordinator, plus handling all marketing, scheduling, and payroll responsibilities within the salon.

Lather Hair Salon is located at 8521 Cantilever Way, just off Glenwood North/Highway 70 West near Carmax. For more information, visit
