When you think of Manahawkin, you think of a great place to raise a family, a close knit community, the many changes that have happened over the years, and the businesses that have come and gone. In 1975, a woman named Meredith Ash started Simply Hair. Teri Holl, who worked at Simply Hair from the very beginning, became the manager in 1977, and in 1979 she and her husband Al Holl purchased Simply Hair. At the age of 18, I started working for Simply Hair & Nails as an assistant. In 2005, after working for Teri and Al for 18 years, they gave my husband and I the opportunity to purchase Simply Hair & Nails: an icon of the Manahawkin business district.
My name is Amy; my husband Bill and I are the proud owners of Simply Hair in Manahawkin-celebrating 42 years of business!
I celebrated 30 years at Simply Hair in April!! <3 We were excited at the thought of owning a business. My husband Bill had business in his background. I learned a lot working alongside Teri for over 18 years; so it made for an easy transition. Over the years, Teri taught me how to treat employees and clients, good business ethics, and pretty much everything in between. We work very hard to keep the reputation that Teri and Al built. We also feel it’s important to give back to our community as much as possible and are actively involved in supporting and donating to many local schools, charities, and organizations.
As a child, I knew I wanted to be a hair stylist from watching my big sister, Betty. She inspired me to become what I am today, and I am lucky enough to have worked with her for the past 29 years. All of our girls are more like family to us than employees. Some have been with Simply Hair as long as I have, some are newer, but they are all very close and it really makes for a pleasant and fun environment. We are very lucky to have the staff that we do.
When times are tough, we are all there for one another.
