Stylist and Hair Extension Expert
Even as a little girl, Mary Beth knew that she wanted to be a hairdresser. “I was lucky enough to know, in my heart, that the hair business was for me,” she explains. With more than 28 years of experience in the industry, she finds the connections that she fosters with the people she interacts with both professionally and personally fulfilling. “The business has become more than what my clients see in the mirror,” she continues. “The most rewarding part of this industry is helping my clients care about themselves – not only on the outside, but, most importantly, on the inside. I feel like there are no coincidences; there is always a reason for the person in my chair.”
With a strong team ethic and an impressive professional history, Mary Beth not only brings her expertise to On The Fringe Hair Studio but also the desire to contribute to its positive environment. With the priority of best serving her clients, she adds that she wants to share her experience with the industry professionals at On The Fringe – to “share what we enjoy doing as a team.” Mary Beth looks forward to serving both existing and new clients in her new Archbald location.
Away from the studio, Mary Beth enjoys being home and spending time with her husband and son. Believing that animals help us “to live well and realize what matters in life,” she also spends time with a trio of large dogs – dogs that “help me slow down a bit.” Refinishing old furniture as a creative endeavor, she finds “taking something from broken to beautiful” to be rewarding – with the added bonus of quiet time. Always “learning, growing, and adjusting,” Mary Beth takes pride in being just “a little better than I was yesterday,” and takes the time to focus on personal growth. “We are always facing life’s challenges, and I believe in handling them with as much grace as possible – which takes practice.”
