About the Owner Robin Dorton

Welcome Message from the owner:Robin3

After 17 years in the industry, and 7 years as a business partner with the best tattoo shops in South Jersey, 12 ounce Studios, I decided to start this company so that I could finally have the salon of my dreams. I wanted to have a place to do some great things with hair, but also wanted to provide for myself and other industry professionals a place where we could truly be part of a team and have the creative freedom that we long for.

My favorite time in my career was feeling the energy of working in Manhattan, educating other professionals on Wella hair color, and collaborating with other amazing artists on shows, photo shoots, and campaigns. I needed that energy and creativity to be able to shine again and knew that I could have a salon where those values are not only allowed, but also encouraged and inspired. –Robin Dorton
