Technician Stylist

Beth Rice has been an associate and stylist at J. Thomas Salon since 2007.  She began her career as an assistant for the salons top designers, and soon realized she shared their passion for the beauty industry.  She maintained her job as an assistant while working towards her license as a Master of Cosmetology at Lanier Technical College. After completing her courses to be a Georgia Master Cosmetologist, Beth became a member of the salon’s leading team of professional stylists.
Beth enjoys keeping up with the latest trends in the industry, but she finds her greatest satisfaction in working with her clients on a day to day basis in order to develop a program of color, cut and style that meet their personal everyday or special occasion demands.
“The best thing I feel I can do for my clients is listen to them and offer my advice. I strive to ensure that every client who sits in my chair leaves with a style that makes them feel incredible, and is a look that can be easily duplicated once they are out of the salon and in their own home,” Beth says.
Her association with J. Thomas Salon and Spa has given her access to some of the nation’s best training, from respected salon brands like Framesi, Bio Ionic, and Pureology.  In addition, she has attended numerous shows to keep up with the most up-to-date trends in hair fashion.
When Beth is not in the salon, her second passion is the great outdoors. She enjoys spending as much of her downtime as possible on the lake or in the mountains. As a native of this area, specifically Gainesville, Lake Lanier and the gorgeous North Georgia Mountains are her favorite, but she is always up for traveling and exploring new places.
Beth is not only enthusiastic about her career as a J Thomas Salon hair artist, but she is enthusiastic about life in general! With her passion for beauty and constant upbeat attitude, why wouldn’t you choose Beth as your personal hair stylist!

I have been getting my hair done at J Thomas salon for a couple years now and I will not go anywhere else! I have recently moved from Dahlonega to Midtown, and I still travel over an hour to have my hair done by Beth. I cannot rave enough about Beth and J Thomas salon!
