CLIPPINGS: LITERALLY!

CLIPPINGS_220Katie Corr, a hair stylist at Glen Goldbaum 72 in Red Bank, was “very young” when she started to do hair, but still loves it, she says – “especially when the clients leave the salon feeling much better then when they arrived.”

“It’s not just the hair,” she says. “Clients talk about their lives… sometimes I feel like a therapist.”

She’s seen here with client Lisette Lynch.
