Denise Lyons at Shays Hair Salon
It's commonly heard that those who can, do; those who can't, teach. But not Denise Lyons. She's spent 27 years as a hands-on stylist and a licensed cosmetology instructor. At her spot in Shays Hair Salon, she performs her specialty hair weaves, silk presses, chemical relaxers, color treatments, and routine cuts and styles. Her services have garnered attention from well-known clientele, too: she counts gospel artist Pastor Shirley Caesar and WDAS radio host Mimi Brown as clients.
