Wes Pettis

Master Stylist/Owner

Wes opened Hair Express and has been continuously serving Okaloosa County since May 1978. He enjoys working with his clients and their haircare needs, whether it is the shortest of clipper cuts (flattops, military cut), a business men's style, trend setting style, or the longest of layer cuts for women. Perms and hair color of all kinds are also his specialty. Keeping your hair in the best condition and shining beautifully is his goal. Wes looks forward to serving you and your family with all your hair care needs.

Hair Express Niceville Beth Jones

Beth Jones


Beth grew up locally, graduating from Niceville High School in 1981. By the spring of 1983, she had earned her cosmetology license from Beauty Careers Training and immediately began building on the most sizable, varied and loyal client bases in the area. She specializes in a wide range of services including men's, women's and children's cuts, styling, perms and colors. Call today to schedule your appointment or consultation.


Mel Parchment


Mel graduated from NHS in 2004 with a degree in “Well, I'm glad that's finally done.” She earned her cosmetology license from VoTech in Fort Walton Beach, and has been slinging color all over the Gulf Coast ever since. Though she specializes in curly hair, special occasion up-do's, hair cutting & eyebrow waxing, she's never happier at work than when she has a color brush in her hand and good tunes on the radio. A big believer in taking chances and sending good vibes, you'll never leave her chair without a zest in your step, a laugh on your lips, an arm full of quality products to keep you looking and feeling fresh as heck.

Wes is awesome. Color or the latest style he can do it. His staff are highly trained as well.
