Meet the Team



Owner & Barber

As a young girl I always knew I would have a career in hair. I graduated from Lake Erie Barber College in 1992. A friend asked if I would consider buying a salon with him and going in as business partners. I never expected that I would become the sole owner just a few years later. I have enjoyed building relationships with my clients through the last 24 years and can't wait to see what the future holds.




Bethany is a managing licensed cosmetologist. She graduated from Brown Aveda in 2007. Bethany does haircuts, color, manicures, and pedicures.




Maryann has been doing hair for 25 years. She graduated from International Beauty School. Trained in Deva Curl and Balayage color technique. She specializes in color and razor cutting.

My name is Rachel Hess and I recently started working at Awaken Hair and Day Spa. I've been doing hair for eight years in Twinsburg but moved closer to Chardon to be closer to my family. I love the area and wanted to reach out with a special offer. I do all hair color and haircuts and would love to give you the look you're looking for.
