Lisa is the eldest daughter of Fritz Thompson and Alexis Duncombe. She is the proud mother of two boys, Mekhi and Destin. Lisa was born and raised in Grand Bahama, a beautiful island located in The Bahamas, where she resides.
Her experience as a stylist began in her teenage years when she truly discovered her love for hair care and styling. She would often style her own hair using creative techniques as well as styling for family and friends. Upon graduating Freeport Anglican High School (now known as Bishop Michael Eldon School) in 2001, she continued providing hair services part-time as a hair braider. Lisa soon realized that this was an avenue she wanted to pursue full-time.
After much consideration and encouragement from family members, Lisa enrolled at The Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute. She then acquired certification in Hair Braiding and Cosmetology respectively.
In 2006, Lisa opened her first salon, Serenity Salon & Spa. Serenity Salon was a full service salon catering to multi-cultural clientele. Due to the decline in the economy, Serenity Salon closed it’s doors late 2008. Despite the closure of her salon, Lisa continued to provide quality service for her customers.
Over the years, Lisa has gained advanced training from leading natural hair stylists in the United States. Most recently, well known natural hair professional Essence China of Rare Essence Studio.
She is also a contributing stylist to well known natural hair magazine, Naturally Happy Hair’s: Natural Hair & Lifestyle Magazine in the United States. Her latest piece can be found in the June 2016 issue.
