Salon owner and educator, Lezlie Lumpkin Price, was born and raised here in Knoxville. She is a graduate of East Tennessee State University with a BS degree in Education and of Tennessee School of Beauty. After graduating from ETSU, Lezlie decided to pursue her passion in an artistic calling and had the foresight to capitalize on her pension for teaching. She always knew that education was the backbone and the key to success both in life and the beauty industry.
Lezlie always knew the name of her salon would be Z Nevaeh Salon … “I’ve always been known as Lezlie with a “Z” and I always knew that Nevaeh would be in the name (Nevaeh is Heaven backwards). I have always been driven and directed to conduct myself and my business according to my belief system and my calling.”
Beginning with The Hairdressers at the Orangery, Lezlie later became the Senior Stylist and Educator for Salon Visage, the largest salon in Knoxville. With 27 years in the industry, Lezlie has reached the apex of her profession where it is now just as rewarding to teach as it is to achieve her goals. It is time to pass along her experiences and knowledge. Her first and foremost love is still to be behind the chair … where the magic happens!!
With her desire to leave a LEGACY , Lezlie sees it as an opportunity to reveal what true success and artistry can actually be! Her definition of that LEGACY is … a “gift” handed down by a predecessor with the intent of easing the hardships in pursuit of excellence.
Along with educating tomorrow’s industry leaders, Lezlie has achieved notoriety throughout the state of Tennessee. Recognized as a leader and educator, she has been chosen by the Cosmetology Board of Tennessee to teach continuing education classes in Advanced Color to Tennessee’s beauty school instructors contracted through the University of Tennessee.
