Jessica Williams, Owner
“my philosophy: whether it’s edgy and modern or sleek and elegant, I strive to create the perfect look for each individual client. i’m also determined to provide my clients with the highest degree of customer service in a friendly professional setting. and i am dedicated to performing my craft exceptionally well. bottom line: I don’t want one single client to believe he or she can be better served at any other salon.” — Jessica
for almost a decade, Jessica Williams has been mastering the art of hair coloring, cutting and styling. she is known for her excellent design skills and her friendly, professional chair-side manner.
Jessica received her initial cosmetology education at Mitchell’s Hair Styling Academy. Afterwards she worked in a local chain salon that provided her with the foundation, advanced education, and business sense she needed to open her own salon. but first, she went back to school at North Carolina State University to become a more educated stylist (she received a degree in communications), then worked at other established salons until she finally found a place of her own – Lather Hair Salon. Jessica opened Lather in October 2008.
to stay on the cutting edge of hair and fashion, Jessica is constantly seeking out new educational experiences that will continue to motivate her. she pushes her own boundaries and studies new cutting and coloring techniques. but her clients’ wishes always, always come first. “hair should be stylish, but it should also be an extension of a person’s individuality,” she insists. “i love building relationships with people so I can know them well enough to grasp their individuality. that’s where their style comes from. and that’s what I want to express.”
when Jessica is not doing hair, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Jay, her two twin boys Harrison and Colton and her dogs, Chewy and Ella.
