Ashley Williams

Ashley Williams

Owner/Stylist

Hello! I’m Ashley Williams, co-owner of Williams & Roy Salon, and I’m so excited to have the opportunity to bring a new type of hair experience to the neighborhood. As a Decatur native and small business owner, I know that people in this community are actively engaged, hard-working professionals with a keen awareness of value. I personally understand how important (and difficult) it can be to relax and let yourself be taken care of, which is why I’ve made it our mission to provide a luxurious atmosphere where you can recharge and indulge in some much needed self-care.

I’ve been in the salon industry for more than twenty years, not only as a stylist but also as an educator and mentor. I love creating custom haircuts and colors that use modern looks and techniques and that will fit your personality and lifestyle. I guess you could say my specialty is balancing form and function. Natural curls are my passion, and as a curly girl myself, rest assured that I understand the quirks and magic that come with textured hair. I also proudly offer gender-neutral pricing, which means that the price of your haircut is determined by the length, density, and complexity of your desired style and not by your gender identity.

When I’m not in the salon, I’m busy being a super extra dog mom and paying WAY too much attention to politics and current events. I am passionate about my beliefs and I thrive when I am actively involved in making my community, and the world, a better place. When you’re in my chair, I won’t just “do your hair;” I’ll work to get to know you and your hair. I can’t wait to meet you and start the journey.

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me an email at contactus@williamsroysalon.com

Kerry Roy

Kerry Roy

Owner/Stylist

Kerry began his career in hair almost 35 years ago, truly learning the business from the ground up. It was the ‘80’s and he worked as a shampoo assistant after school. He loved everything about it, big hair, wild clothes and a truly creative work environment. Kerry went on to be a top colorist at VanMicheal and eventually opened his own salon in Grayton Beach, FL. Realizing he missed the energy of a big city, he moved to New York (it doesn’t get any bigger than that!) where he worked at several top salons. But getting back to his roots is what brought him back to his hometown of Atlanta where he has been for the last decade, cultivating a clientele and building quality relationships with his clients. Kerry has defined his approach to hair as classic foundations with a modern edge.

“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.”—Coco Channel
Ever since I was a little girl practicing on my dolls, I have loved doing hair. My parents thought it was just a cute little phase, but that passion has persisted even through today. I believe that this industry is the best in the world and it never feels like work to me. Even after completing cosmetology school, I continued to expand my knowledge. I completed certifications with Bumble and Bumble’s Network Education program in New York as well as several continuing education classes in color correction and innovative cutting. I like to think that I will always be a student because this industry is always changing.
I grew up just outside of Decatur, so I am familiar with the Avondale community and it will always be close to my heart. Whether you need a color correction, a new cut, texture added or a vivid pop of color, I am up for the challenge! My ultimate goal is to return you to yourself while bringing out more of your best you. Consultations are always complimentary. I love helping my clients decide what color, style, and maintenance plan will work best with their individual lifestyle, and I will suggest the products to best bring your hair goals to life. I hope to see you soon!

Rachel Hare

Rachel Hare

Stylist

Hi I’m Rachel and I love making people look and feel their very best.

I am an Atlanta-based professional hairstylist and makeup artist who has been in the business since 2003, where I started as an assistant, received my license for Master of Cosmetology in 2005, and also received training by MAC cosmetics for makeup artistry. My love of makeup and hair artistry started early. Whether it was playing in my mom’s makeup drawer or cutting my Barbie’s hair. I always knew I belonged in the beauty industry! I have been inspired by all things beauty ever since I was a little girl.

In order to stay current and keep up with the latest trends, I attend yearly shows all over the country and have taken classes taught by some of the most prominent celebrity stylists like Justin Anderson, who is known for Jennifer Anniston’s hair color; and Tracey Cunningham who is the colorist for Emma Stone, Drew Barrymore and J.Lo. As a licensed Master Cosmetologist, I specialize in custom hair color and makeup artistry. My work spans from weddings to black tie events to headshots. My passion for enhancing natural beauty shows in my hair and makeup applications and client interactions.

As a stylist, there’s something magical about seeing someone’s confidence grow when they feel their best. It’s empowering. My goal as an artist is to have every person who sits in my chair feel confident, empowered and beautiful (or handsome), all while being in a comfortable environment!

Hope to see you in my chair soon!

Lily Myers

Lily Myers

Stylist

Hi, I’m Lily, product junkie and lover of all things beauty. After graduating from Toni & Guy in 2019, I took a brief hiatus during the height of Covid to help take care of my family, but my love and passion for beauty never waned. At the beginning of 2022, I decided to rejoin the beauty industry, working directly under Ashley to recalibrate. Since taking clients full time, passion for my craft has only increased. My goal is to help you relax, focus on yourself for a bit, and help you feel and look your best. Some of my favorite things to do in the salon are vivid/fashion colors, styling, creating all types of shapes through haircutting,  balayage and other modern blonding techniques. 

I’m definitely not afraid of thick or long hair, but please specify when booking so I’ll make sure to have enough time for you and your beautiful hair. If you have questions about amping up your fine or thin hair, I’m your gal as I have BOTH.

When I’m not at the salon, you can usually find me snuggled up with my two beautiful (and spoiled) rescue pups and tending to the jungle in my room. 

I can’t wait to meet you!

Charlotte Albanese

Charlotte Albanese

Stylist

HI, I’m Charlotte. I’m new to Decatur but not hair. I have decades of experience in every aspect of hair styling including positions as an educational director and regional platform artist for Redken. Growing up in a rural small town, I learned that building relationships is so important and I strive to incorporate that value into my daily life and business.  

As a color specialist, I utilize modern coloring techniques to tailor a look to your lifestyle while keeping you current and feeling confident. I excel in multi dimensional blonding and gray blending and I fully believe that beautiful healthy hair makes a beautiful,healthy and happy client.

I share two teenage boys with my partner as well as a sweet 4 year old Aussie and a spunky 13 year old cat.  When I have spare time, you can find me getting my hands dirty in the garden.

You can book with me on Saturdays for now with more days added in the near future. I can/t wait to meet you.

Hailey Barton

Hailey Barton

Stylist

Hey!!! My name is Hailey. 

I’m originally from South Carolina where I grew up in a salon and officially started doing hair in 2018. I’ve been in love with it since. Being here in Atlanta for the past year has been an amazing experience in and out of the salon. I specialize in all things color. That’s where my heart is at! Of course I also enjoy and thrive in all things cuts and styling. My biggest goal is to get you the hair that fits your life, while also helping you achieve the self confidence you SO deserve! While I wish I could say I do everything under the sun, I don’t take men’s cuts at the current moment. 

Outside of work I spend majority of my time with my family. Me & my partner have a daughter & 2 fur babies that keep us on our toes at all times! Other than that I enjoy riding horses, cooking, & relaxing of course. 

I’m beyond excited to work with all of you! See you in my chair 🙂

Cindy Diamond

Cindy Diamond

Salon Manager

Hi, I’m Cindy Diamond, Manager at Williams and Roy.  I’ve always worked for myself, but when my friends Kerry, and Ashley said they needed a salon manager, I jumped at the chance to be involved in their business.  

I’m a semi-retired business person (retirement just wasn’t my cup of tea) who has reinvented herself several times over the last 60+ years.  I spent my 20’s and 30’s as a professional musician, my 40’s and 50’s as the owner of a meeting and event planning company, and my late 50’s and early 60’s as a restaurant owner.  I’ve lived all over metro Atlanta beginning in 1974, from Stone Mountain to Midtown and beyond.  I attended and got my degree from Georgia State University, and currently live in the smallest city in Dekalb County, Pine Lake.  So, I consider myself very close to being a Georgia native.

I’ve dabbled in politics; serving a term on the city of Pine Lake city council. I am a freelance bookkeeper, and I still perform music with my spouse and a dear friend.  

Working at Williams and Roy is a great new experience for me, and I love it.

Apprentice

Hi, I’m Mina and I work as an apprentice here at the salon. I am fairly new to hair, but am working on expanding my knowledge and career every day. 

Ever since I was a kid I was always intrigued by the precision and skill of hairdressers and wanted to learn the craft for myself.

I started working as a shampoo assistant in 2022 and further piqued my interest. I love to let people sit back and relax while helping them look and feel their best and the confidence that comes with that. 

Outside of the salon, you can find me in the gym or playing with my sweet cat. Im a huge advocate for bettering your mind and body and believe that’s the first step in confidence.

Although I am not taking my own clients yet, you are more than likely to receive a shampoo or blow dry from me!

Hannah

Receptionist

Hi! I’m Hannah and I joined the salon last year as the receptionist! I live in the area and before working here I was down the street at Mama Bath & Body. I love expanding my knowledge and it’s been super fun to learn all about hair. When I’m not working I’m most likely outside exploring with my husband and dog, crafting, or catching Pokémon.
