Stacey West

“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!” | Benjamin Franklin

Stacey’s mission is to make the world a better place. She believes beauty empowers confidence and confidence empowers the courage to be authentic. When we can be who we are, we’re more inclined to accept others as they are - and this is something that helps makes the world a better place.

In high school Stacey studied cosmetology (because that’s what all the cool girls were doing), but it immediately became apparent she had a natural talent for cutting hair. After graduating Stacey accepted a job in a local salon in Clarksville TN and studied to receive her cosmetology license. License in hand, Stacey relocated to Atlanta, GA where she became district manager at Premier Salon.

Stacey joined the Keri Gold Salon family two years ago so she could focus on her passion - bringing out the natural beauty in someone’s hair and transforming an old style into something new! She loves it when her clients come to the salon with photographs of their desired style, because this gives her the compass with which to create the hair of their dreams.

Things that allow Stacey to excel as a hair stylist: her ability to listen, her love of beauty, understanding how to work within people’s limitations, and knowing when to break the rules.

Things that make Stacey happy: her children, fashion, meditation, and yoga.

Fun Facts About Stacey:

Worst hair day ever: It was in high school; I set my hair using straws I collected from McDonalds, but I didn’t know how to do the ends properly. I ended up with all these tight curls that looked like fish hooks on the ends.  

If you could have anyone’s hair: Taraji P. Henson, because her hair looks so healthy and it moves when she moves.  

Take a week’s vacation anywhere in the world: My grandmother’s house in Lancaster PA. She’s my favorite person in the world. 

Reading now: The Bible (so I can make up my own mind instead of just believing it because that’s what I was taught).

Words used by her colleagues to describe Stacey: Committed | Growing | Adult | Sweet | Reserved | Great at cutting hair.

Wildcard: Stacey has two pet goldfish named Cat and Dog.  Guess what Stacey’s children really want as pets?
