Dottie Hodge, owner

Dottie Hodge is a former bookkeeper who attended business school in Ft. Lauderdale. During her frequent moves as a military spouse, she found she enjoyed cutting & styling her friends’ hair, and they liked it too. With their encouragement, she applied for and received a scholarship to a Chicago cosmetology school. Her shops have been in the Pensacola for several decades, with the last 16 years being at the Saufley Field Road location.


Lanie Robinson

Lanie Robinson became interested in cosmetology after moving to Pensacola from the Philippines, and she’s been working for Dottie for 26 years. Her favorite parts of the job are doing short hairstyles and colorings.


Joan Lavoie

Pensacola native Joan Lavoie may be the newest member of Dottie’s team, but, she’s not new to the business. Joan became interested in hair styling when her husband, who was enrolled in the first cosmetology class offered by the George Stone Technical Center, used her as his model to obtain his cosmetology license. She enjoyed the experience so much that she signed up for the next class.
