Experienced in Restoring Confidence & Enhancing Natural Beauty
Since entering the medical field and transitioning to the aesthetics industry, sisters Jolee Hughes and Byerly Ham finally decided it was time to take a leap of faith and open The Lookshop. The two sisters went through nursing and nurse practitioner school together and have been talking about opening their own business for years. Fast-forward to 2021, and Jolee and Byerly ensured their passion for instilling confidence and enhancing natural beauty made its way to their hometown of Forsyth, Georgia.

After over 10 years as a Registered Nurse (RN) and Nurse Practitioner (APRN), Jolee chose to pivot within the medical field and entered the aesthetics industry in 2018 and has always been passionate about opening a business with her sister.

She loves helping her patients age gracefully by addressing problem areas with a personalized treatment plan.

Jolee and her husband, Matt, have three kids – Byron, Emma Hope, and Charlee. Outside of work, she loves being on her family farm where they have chickens, ducks, and a potbelly pig. Jolee enjoys traveling with her family and reading a great novel with a glass of wine or cup of coffee in hand.
