Our Story

About Us

I always loved hair. At age five, my mom got me a saucy walker doll that didn’t walk (she was in the bargain basement at Bloomingdale’s). Mom told me she had polio, which wasn’t eradicated in those days. Naturally I asked where her wheelchair was and when my mom couldn’t find a wheelchair she came home with a doll-sized beauty shop chair, hairdryer and all! With some curlers and bobby pins my love for hairstyling began. I became the first person to be licensed in the state of New York at age 16. At age 21 I opened my first salon in 1976.

Along the way I enjoyed working on television, runway shows, movie sets and photo shoots for magazines. I won awards as best television host and co-producer of a local cable show called Feeling Good with Marlene Weber in the early 90’s. While working in NYC at the Bloomingdale’s salon and Yves Claude Hair on Madison Avenue I worked with some of the best mentors in the business whose influence in proper haircutting and salon etiquette has shaped the way I do business.

I continually strive to grow my business through sound business systems, tools and goals while maintaining education for myself and my team are paramount to exceeding guests’ expectations. I continue that tradition by sharing my knowledge and expertise as a salon and spa coach and consultant helping other owners achieve success through the same systems I have implemented in my own business.
