Our business was built on family values. In 1964, Anthony Shaw, a hairdresser, and his son Robert, a CPA, opened a beauty salon in New Jersey called Style-Rite. Over subsequent years, they continued to open salons throughout New Jersey.
1970's: Le Salon unisex salons
In the 1970s, unisex salons began to replace beauty salons. Men, women, and children were going to the same salon. Evolving with the times, Style Rite beauty salons became Le Salon unisex salons.
1980's: Cutting Crew
Being in the fashion industry, trends and styles continued to change. Adapting again to industry trends, Le Salon transformed into Cutting Crew in the 1980s
1989-1996: Boston Chicken
In 1989, Robert and his son, Jonathan came across an emerging restaurant franchise called Boston Chicken (now known as Boston Market) while looking for new salon locations. Jonathan opened his first franchise in 1990 and developed four more before selling in 1996. The experience of having been a Franchise Owner would prove invaluable when Jonathan becomes involved.
2009: Lemon Tree Hair Salons
After the recession in 2009, Jonathan identified an opportunity and purchased Lemon Tree Hair Salons. Since then, Jonathan and the Lemon Tree Hair Salons team have been building a community of Hair Salon Franchise Owners, many of whom have become multi-unit owners. Now the largest salon franchise on Long Island, they're ready to bring their decades of salon expertise around the country.
