Industrie Hairdressing founders Holly Tignor and Mary Cahill Garrard are a natural match. Aside from having similar career trajectories—they each got their starts in the early 90s before developing their skills on the artistic team at U.K.-based Toni&Guy—the two share an ambitious streak that led them to establish Creating Beauty, a three-tiered company that consists of two concept salons and a hairdressing academy.
At Industrie Hairdressing, the idea is to draw inspiration from all forms of art and design using an approach to styling that's as freeform as the episode of Jeopardy! where Alex Trebek had to improvise all the clues. During sessions, stylists grouped into five levels based on experience and education consult with their clients to create styles that best suit the client's lifestyle and face shape. They do this by drawing on a full line of Bumble and Bumble products.

These trained spa professionals customize grown-up beauty services such as these to suit the needs of a younger generation, giving 12–15 year-old boys and girls a unique and fun way to enjoy an afternoon or birthday party.
Tucked inside Salon Republic, the team uses 100% organic ingredients to perform safe nail, skin, and body treatments. A dessert-inspired pedicure refreshes little toes with a fizz soak and foot mask, and a teen facial designed for 12-15 year-old clients aims to control acne with deep cleansings, extractions, and stern threats of detention. The staff can also adorn youngsters with mineral makeup, temporary tattoos, and a range of hairstyles that includes everything from up-dos to mohawks.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Jeunesse (which means youth in French) offers only results-driven treatments such as Dermatude META therapy: the newest and most precise treatment in anti-aging.

What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer? My skin is looking amazing! Now my mom wants to come see you!
