Lonie Carpenter

Lonie is located at both the East and West locations by appointment only.I started my career in 2000. I still can't believe I am able to call my passion "work." I wake up everyday ready to give my all to my team and my guests. 

I feel like I'm doing exactly what I was meant to do. Connecting with people and helping them find the best version of themselves are experiences that feed my soul. 

Being the director of education for our salons Mode Academy gives me the ability to share my skills, knowledge and passion with my team. It really sets the tone in our salon and in our local community. Hairdressing has taken this "small town guy" around the world.

Attending Davines World Wide Hair Tour and Aveda conferencesbringing back big ideas and skills from far away places my most recent trainings include hosting Sally Rogerson SR Cuttingprogram, Aveda Beyond Balayage, Freehand Colour with Colour Director Madeleine at Allilon London, Davines classes,Aveda classes and Aveda Dare To Dream conference. As a member of Mode Salons Artistic team I'm able to express my artistry locally on a different stage such as Art Walk, Gainesville Fashion Week and other publications.
