    All About Lorraine + Her Salon

    Lorraine is a true #HobokenGirl — born and raised — and is proud of it. She began her career at 19 and has been at it for over 30 years. In that time, she grew as a stylist and has advanced to the max. She is a Redken educator, a curly hair specialist, and a style, design, + finish kind of chick {so you know you’re going to look fabulous when you walk out of her salon}. She also runs an associate program through Redken for her newly hired stylists, which allows them to learn through a practical, hands-on program under the wing of one of their master stylists.

You will find your person when you come in, that’s for sure. The salon uses Redken techniques and products, so every service guests get is top of the line and will leave them feeling like a beaut in no time.
