Lisa Forward

Master Colorist/Stylist Owner

With more than 25 years of experience in the world of hairstyling, Lisa Murray boasts a long list of accomplishments: designing and opening Inspire Salon and Medi Spa, implementing an educational program for new hair stylists, and being appointed to the Tennessee Board of Cosmetology, to name a few.

Raised in Ann Arbor Michigan, Lisa got her first taste of the beauty industry at 19 in a local salon. "My first mentor, Faye Thompson, was from England and performed platform work in Europe. She was the coolest person I had ever met! I loved the fun atmosphere in the salon and knew I had found my vocation.”

Lisa’s mentor guided and provided her with direction to ensure the best possible education. She suggested Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, CA. An excited Lisa applied to the prestigious Academy and once accepted, moved to Los Angeles for the extensive program. Lisa thrived in the advanced training at Vidal Sassoon along with heavyweights in the hair industry like Nick Arrojo from the show "What Not To Wear", Rhys, co-owner of JetRhys in San Diego, and Mike Karg, celebrity hairstylist.

When you have an appointment with Lisa, expect a complete, thorough consultation and dedicated service. "I was offered a job at Vidal Sassoon in Beverly Hills, but I turned it down to focus on the ‘total’ look. I knew I wanted to have the freedom to do both cuts and color. At Sassoon, you focus on one or the other."

Lisa's passion for hair color has translated to her expertise in styling hair. The process begins by assessing her guest’s skin tone, eye color, and hair texture to create what most closely resembles the hair color from the childhood of the guest. "Kids have the most beautiful hair color. My goal is to mimic nature and give their hair the natural dimension of their 5-year old self." If natural isn't what her guest has in mind, Lisa has an array of ideas for avant-garde color and haircuts.

With her ability to find the precise haircut and style for her guests face shape, Lisa has a myriad of loyal clients that she truly adores.

Lisa’s motto is: "You wear your hair everyday, so make it the best it can be!”
