As the stylist/owner with over 20 years of education, training and experience, DRee credits many of the industry's best talent for her never ending passion. Some of the people and organizations she has been fortunate to learn from have been, Sasoon, Rusk, Aveda, and Paul Mitchell. Having worked approximately seven years as an assistant to Mr. Lyal McCaig, the previous Artistic Director of IBS, DRee traveled to many locations throughout the US supporting him. She has had extensive opportunities to work closely with some of her mentors. These experiences prepared her as an educator for ARTec in the Northeast GA area. DRee has been a member of the Salon Association since 1999, a previous member of NCA and GCA, and she currently sits on the Advisory Board for Cosmetology at Athens Area Technical College. DRee has an unquenchable thirst for learning and is always up for a challenge, and motivates her staff similarly. We can’t pinpoint a specialty for DRee because she excels in all categories. Her joy comes from transforming her guests to a new level by providing amazing hair color along with a flattering haircut and style each and every time.

Layne Lasseter Spa Manager/Aesthetician This Dothan Alabama girl seems right at home in the Classic City and DRee and Company. Going on 7 years since she relocated, Layne decided to take her interest in skin care to the next level and commute to Atlanta Institute of Aesthetics, a division of Atlanta school of massage. Her facials are relaxing and informative, while her reflexology treatments are worth it all. You can receive a mini reflexology in your facial or schedule a full service one as well. Layne also provides waxing hair removal and body facials and treatments.

April
April hails from Dothan, AL and has worked with special needs children for the past eight years. It was 2 years ago while working with these children that she realized how well they responded to gentle massage. It helped to relax and calm them from an agitated state when nothing else would. That’s when she decided to pursue massage therapy as a vocation. She received her certification from the Athens Institute for Massage and came on staff in March of 2009. April truly enjoys her profession and the benefits her guests derive from it. She will continue to devote time to her special needs children as well.
