Linda Regan - Owner
Welcome to Changes, my name is Linda Regan and I am the owner of Changes by Linda & Co. Natural Motion Beauty School in Jersey City is where my career first began. I am a firm believer in continuing education and have studied abroad at Vidal Sassoon in London and Miami as well as classes throughout New York and New Jersey. I am the chairman of the advanced hairstyling competition for N J skills USA.
Our Salon prides itself in the belief that motivation, passion and education are the keys to success. I am devoted to keeping the shop warm and welcoming and I believe that sets us apart from other salons. I enjoy creating new looks in styling accented by fabulous color! My specialties include weddings and proms, as well as doing makeovers and photography.
Trying to keep the salon constantly fresh and new is one of the reasons why we are called Changes. It has been ten years since I opened the salon and it's been wonderful. I know there will be many more to come. Now I would like to introduce my staff to you which I am very proud of them.
