April 28, 2010 (RALEIGH) – Lather Hair Salon in Raleigh has recently expanded its staff to include a new stylist and a new cosmetology apprentice.
Cameron Barbour, 30, has joined the Lather staff as a professional stylist. Originally from Benson, NC, she has five years of experience in all aspects of hair styling including up-dos and extensions. She previously worked at Salon 21 in downtown Raleigh.
“Cameron is a great addition to the salon,” said Jessica Williams, Lather’s owner and senior stylist. “She fills our last chair and we couldn’t be happier with her. She’s a very vibrant, very talented member of our professional team.”
Williams has also hired Stephanie Dungan, 24, as the salon’s new apprentice. Dungan studied cosmetology at Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington, graduating with an apprentice license. She moved to Raleigh when her husband entered the School of Engineering at NC State University. She will complete the requirements to receive a full cosmetology license at Lather.
“I am hoping to hire Stephanie on a stylist as soon as she finishes up her work as an apprentice,” Williams said. “She has fit right into the salon and is a great asset for us. As an apprentice, she can do everything a licensed stylist does except the physical act of cutting hair and applying colors. So she’ll spend a lot of time shampooing, blow-drying, and assisting in curling hair.”
With these new hires, the Lather team includes five professional stylists, one apprentice, and a salon manager.
