Jenny's Full Service Salon Has A Cheerful Style

By S. Mathur

A salon is where most people go for beauty treatments, and not necessarily for a fun experience. At Jenny's Full Service Salon in Mechanicsburg, PA, they can find both. It began with owner Jenny Carricato's search for top professionals who enjoy their work.

"Jenny's opened in September of 2011 with the desire to offer talented stylists an enjoyable workplace," she said. "This is the crucial first step to my ultimate goal of providing clients with highly skilled services, in a friendly and pleasant salon."

Recruiting a team of friendly and skilled professionals was the first step. She has a commitment to mentoring staff and ensuring their continuing education and training in the craft.

"I have highly-skilled, well-educated stylists who care," Carricato said. "The staff is in it for the long haul, so during the consultation, stylists like to get to know our clients. They want to create a cut, color or style that matches their preferences and lifestyle."

Carricato is personally invested in helping clients find the best possible style for their hair and nails. Consultations can begin with clients sending her a photo, so she can decide exactly how to enhance their true style. Services include hair, nails, and waxing treatments. Make up, special events and weddings are a speciality.

"Brides have plenty of other things to worry about leading up to their special day," Carricato said. "The least of which should be their hair and makeup! Our staff pays great attention to detail, especially regarding scheduling on the big day."

Clients love the atmosphere, which is warm, welcoming, personable, energetic and enthusiastic. The staff are focused on pampering clients, and the combination of a friendly manner with real talent is a winner. Most clients have been coming to Jenny's for years and wouldn't go anywhere else, trusting the staff with styling and coloring. Some will even make a long drive regularly for hair care, even after moving out of state.

The stylists can handle all kinds of hair, from thick hair which can be difficult to mange to short hair which needs careful styling. Color is another area where it's important to trust your stylist, and at Jenny's, clients find exactly what they're looking for. Pricing of salon services are based on a tier system. Clients may schedule with highly sought after stylists or recent cosmetology school graduates who are building their clientele, and several levels in between. Providing different pricing options allows a client to be matched with a stylist whose pricing fits into their budget.

Not surprisingly, salon has five star ratings on online review sites, and has won the Harrisburg Magazine Readers Poll Simply the Best Award for two years running, in 2016 and 2017. Jenny's is also very committed to the neighborhood and supports local charities like breast cancer awareness.
