Stephanie Thompson

Stephanie serves SSBC as a Consultant. She brings with her over 25 years of
experience in the beauty industry, along with a love for teaching others. She began her career in 1991 as a nail technician, which is where she developed an interest in the salon industry as a whole. After four years of working in the nail and spa departments in a rapidly growing salon, she returned to cosmetology school to get her license to become a stylist. It was there that she found her love for hair, and more importantly her love for people.

Stephanie currently works behind the chair as a stylist at a Summit Salon in Louisville, Ky. She is also an educator, a mentor, and a life coach to many within the salon as well as outside of the salon. Her experiences working in a salon with level systems in place have cultivated her belief in the importance of them and how crucial they are to elevating our industry.

Stephanie loves to be a part of growing people, seeing them set and reach new goals, and
celebrating their successes. Her passion for “passing it on” is what motivates her!
