My Story

     Lee has been a serious student of hairdressing for over 40 years, keeping himself abreast of nearly every book, magazine article and videotape published on the subject. He has attended numerous beauty shows including the International Haircolor Exchange, Premier Hair Show, Haircolor USA, Hair World, and International Hairdressing Olympics. Although skilled in many areas, Lee most enjoys corrective color, precision haircutting and creating low maintenance hairstyles for his clients. In June, 2000, he passed a rigorous examination by the American Board of Certified Haircolorists, becoming only the second Board Certified Haircolorist in Clay County and the 397th nationwide!
     Lee became a hairdresser in an unorthodox manner. He began trimming his wifeís hair in the early Ď70s. As his skill increased so did the willingness of friends and neighbors to let him practice on them! Following a 23 year career as a naval officer, and a few years as a defense contractor while his children completed their educations, he pursued his cosmetology license through an apprenticeship at JCPenney Styling Salon in Virginia Beach, VA. He joined the M.A.R.S. Salon in February 1998 as manager of the Artistic Design Team., utilizing his leadership and organizational skills. He transferred to HAIR IT IS, Virginia Beach in anticipation of his move to Florida. He continued to serve his Virginia Beach clientele by traveling to HAIR IT IS every fifth week for three years after moving to Florida. He began working at The Cutting Edge Salon in Middleburg when he moved to Florida. In June, 2000, he decided that the time was right for him to venture out on his own and become an independent stylist at Taylorís Hair Design. In November 2001 Lee moved his business to DIANAíS PHD & MORE.
     In September, 2004 his life-long dream of owning his own business came true when he purchased Kibby & Raymondís Beauty Salon in Orange Park and changed its name to HAIR BY LEE and Friends. After major renovations Lee and his colleagues now provide a wide range of hair, massage and esthetician services.
