Nice to Meet You

Lisé Cooke – Owner/Art Director

I love my job, because of the ability to give people confidence by making them look and feel beautiful. The creativity and artistry of hairdressing inspired me to educate myself on everything I could to perfect my craft and led to the opening of Progressions Hair Design Team in 1986. I started an assistant program to share my knowledge with new stylists, which has proven to be another rewarding experience for me. In 2004, with encouragement from my wonderful clients, I opened Progressions Salon and Spa so they could experience an entire day of head to toe beauty and relaxation. Recently, I added the Wig Boutique to help those experiencing hair loss or thinning hair find new confidence. I’ve trained with masters from Vidal Sassoon, Sebastian ,Tigi, Mayrix, and Paul Mitchell to name a few, while also attending international shows in Paris, Milan, Amsterdam, New York, Chicago, Orlando, and Dallas. After 45 years behind the chair, I have retired from hairdressing, but I still head up the assistant program and remain dedicated to maintaining a friendly, passionate, and specialized staff committed to exceeding your expectations!

Hair Designers

Nancy Hayes – Couture Designer

Hair design has been an inspiration which has allowed me to study, meet many interesting people, and travel throughout the States and Scandinavia; and after over 30 years in the beauty industry, our hair should act as our LBD (Little Black Dress). The best way to formulate a personalized look starts with a great haircut which can be enhanced by many expert coloring techniques. I am committed to informing clients on how to effortlessly maintain their style at home. My goal is for you to feel beautiful and confident about your image.
