MEET THE FOUNDER

LISA GAEDE

We have been in full swing for a little over four years  and loving every part of it!  I have been in the salon industry for 22 years and have such a passion for the art of hair and for connecting with people. I am grateful for the opportunity to have such a beautiful location to build the foundation for Carlyle Salon and Style Bar. It is an honor to work with such a talented team of  artists . They are truly inspiring! A huge thank you to ALL of Carlyle’s styling team for creating a family feeling early on and for sharing your talent with every guest that comes through the door. Welcome to all of you!!  And we hope to see you at Carlyle soon!

THE CARLYLE TEAM

SHANNON

SHANNON

Shannon Coburn is a Vidal Sassoon trained Stylist. She has 16 years of experience behind the chair, and comes from a family of salon owners and hairstylists AND ….she has a degree in civil engineering! Go figure—I guess that is why she is so good at what she does. This girl can cut the jazziest of jazzy short haircuts. She can make everyone laugh with her very witty sense of humor. We like to say that she was “grand mothered in” to Carlyle . She was at this space before it was Carlyle and what a privilege and honor that she stayed through the changes. Her work ethic and talent does not stop.(Shannon is an independent stylist, please call for pricing)
