Lisa Yeakley, Owner & Stylist

I am one of the proud owners of New Concepts Salon. I’ve been in the beauty industry for over 20 years! I continue to grow and learn every day — as a mother of four kids, in building the business and from taking beauty workshops. All of these keep me on my toes and I am excited to share my knowledge with my staff and guests. I love showing new ideas and looks with clients both new and existing. My favorite thing about being a stylist is that I get to spend time with my friends all day, making them look their best! My advice to all of my guests is “plan your life around your hair, not your hair around your life and you won’t ever have a bad hair day”.

I have been with New Concepts since graduating Cosmetology school in 2006, and it is truly my home! Really getting to know my guests and connect while making them look and feel their best is one of my favorite things about the industry. My specialties include hair color (reds are favorites!), facial waxing, finishing work, and dry cutting for custom cuts. I love really listening to what my guests need and want.

Jodi Landini,  Stylist

NCS has been my salon home since right out of school! I love being with my New Concepts Family almost as much as taking my two beautiful dogs to the dog park, and spending as much time with them as possible! I am a professional when it comes to special occasion styles and braids. I enjoy teaching my clients how to achieve their look at home by suggesting the perfect products available right at the salon! I pay close attention to detail on face framing haircuts and achieving a color that looks the best with the client’s skin tone. I truly enjoy getting to know my new clients and sharing my passion for making them feel beautiful.

Jenny Winget, Stylist

Hair is life :) I have loved hair since the day I shaved my sisters baby spice doll's head. Don't worry, we are best friends now. She and my grandmother are also stylists, so we call it "the legacy" in my family. I graduated with highest honors at my Redken school-  a level 4 at The Salon Professional Academy of Madison, trained in advanced color, haircutting, and communication. I adore working with bridal hair, balayage, ombres, shadow root, hair extensions, make-up, and haircutting. My entire passion is summed up to providing you with the results you want and the confidence to express yourself to the world! I am constantly pursing extended education, and hope to pursue a career as a Redken Artist.  Life is short, so why not have great hair?
