Hair Cuttery traces its roots to 1973, when newlyweds and hairstylists Dennis and Ann Ratner jointly decided that the salons they worked at left something to be desired—and that they could do better. The next year, they opened their first Hair Cuttery, chasing a vision of fashion-forward cuts and styles as well as a more customer-friendly, comfortable salon experience. In the ensuing decades, their idea has blossomed like a well-watered head of hair, growing to encompass 750 salons in 16 states.

What?s your favorite part about your job?
Making people smile and hearing that I gave them exactly what they wanted.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
My passion for beauty started when I was a little girl playing with Barbie dolls. As a pre-teen I would play in the salon of a family friend and wash and style my friends' hair. By the time I was 16, I knew my passion was cosmetology. I loved creating hair styles for myself and my friends. I began my training at 18 years old, and now almost 30 years later, I still find the beauty industry the most exciting and rewarding career I could have ever chosen.
