With over 30 years in the industry I still love doing hair. For the past 21 years, I have managed a very successful salon in the Mechanicsburg area. I enjoy learning new things and have been very fortunate to travel the world learning new and exciting techniques to help me grow in my profession. I have been a trainer with the Joico Company and have been a hands on trainer with my former employer.
Family is most important to me. My daughter and husband, along with our 4 dogs, live in the country and enjoy camping, hiking and biking.
Leah Gruber Owner/Barber
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine working in such an exciting, fullfilling industry. I Graduated from the Barber styling institute in 2003, and I have been fortunate enough to work along side some incredibly talented stylists. Education has been a passion of mine. Learning new techniques in my field is something that I truly enjoy. It is a wonderful feeling to change someones look and put a smile on there face. Now getting to add salon owner to my accomplishments is an exciting venture that I know will be rewarding. Thanks to my husband, Jamie, for supporting me in this journey and really helping with our three small children to make this all possible.

Audrey Hare Esthetician
This has been a dream of mine since I was a kid growing up in my mom's salon. Every chance I had, I would come into work with her and think, "This is what I want to do". Now that I am older and my mother has put me on this wonderful team of ladies as the receptionist, my dreams are finally coming true. I attended Shears Cosmetology and graduated with an Esthetics certificate after 6 months of schooling. I received my license in February of 2017, and could not be more excited to start my career here at Salon 944.
Michelle Snowden / Stylist
In 1990, I graduated from the Pittsburg Beauty Academy in Greensburg,PA. After taking some time off to raise my 3 boys, I returned to the industry in 2009 and met these wonderful women that I work with today. To say I love what I do is an understatement! This job has allowed me to grow as both a person and a hairstylist.
I use to dream of being a hairstylist ever since I was little. When I met my husband Bryon in 2009 and expressed my interest he helped me get through school. The school I attended was Empire Beauty School in Harrisburg PA. When I graduated in in 2012 I started working and realized how much I loved doing hair and making people feel good about themselves! Then in 2017 Salon 944 hired me and has helped me excel in my career.
