North Raleigh Fashion Shoot Lathers Up

March 12, 2009 (RALEIGH, NC) – Lather Hair Salon in Raleigh marked its sixth month in business by providing professional hair styling for a fashion spread for Social The Magazine, featuring spring coutoure from Catch 22 boutique.

The photo session took place at The Spectacle, a fashion eyewear in North Hills shopping center. Heather Long of Catch 22 told Lather’s Jessica Williams and Lauren Lawson that she envisioned a natural style to complement the clothing, so the stylists created soft curls for the model.

This was the first time Lather stylists worked with Social’s photographer Terrence Jones and fashion director Betzi Hekman of Love Assassins Productions.

“It was fun!” said Williams, owner and senior stylist. “Betzi, Terrence, and all the other people involved couldn’t have made it more relaxing. And I always enjoy doing hair on location. It gets us out of the salon and lets us be really creative.”

Opened in October 2008, Lather is a full-service hair salon located at 8521 Cantilever Way near the corner of Glenwood Ave./Highway 70 and Ebenezer Church Road. . For more information, including business hours and the salon’s “Hair Academy” blog, go to Lather is also available on Facebook and at

Lather Hair Salon Revamps Website, Highlights Bridal Services, Helpful Blog

March 10, 2009 (RALEIGH, NC) – Lather Hair Salon, a full-service salon in North Raleigh that opened in October 2008, has revamped its website – — to make it more engaging and to more fully express the many layers of the salon’s services.

One of those “layers” is Lather’s in-salon and on-site wedding services. Accessed via the “weddings and make-up” tab on the front page, services include bridal party consultations for hair care, color and styling for the Big Day, practice sessions for make-up and hair for the bride and her attendants, and full make-up and hair on the wedding day either in the salon or at the location of the wedding.

Lather Hair Salon’s upgraded website also features a Wedding Planner that outlines hair and make up concerns from six months before the event to the day of the wedding.

Another unusual element of Lather Hair Salon’s services on the website is “Hair Academy 101,” which is now accessible from page one. Hair Academy 101 is the salon’s blog, offering insights and advice on a host of topics pertinent to anyone who cares for his or her hair. Blog topics range from “The Truth and Nothing But The Truth Behind Drugstore Brands” (“The differences lie in the cleansing agent used…”) and “To Color or to Highlight – That is the Question,” to valuable hints and tips on how to stretch your hair care dollars, such as choosing styles and colors that require less upkeep and letting your hair’s natural oil substitute for expansive conditioners.

“Lets face it,” this blog entry begins. “We’re in a recession, times are tight, and taking care of your hair isn’t quite falling as high as it once did on our list of needs and must haves.”

The website also features a full list of Lather Hair Salon’s services, descriptions of products the salon carries, specials available every week (including perks for those who come in to donate their hair to Locks of Love), information on the salon’s owner and stylists, and an online form for making appointments.

Lather Hair Salon is located in North Carolina at 8521 Cantilever Way off Glenwood Avenue/Highway 70. For more information, including business hours, visit the website at
