Meet Our Staff

Johanna Marino

Hi I'm the owner of HQ Salon, I have worked here for 31 years!!!!!!! OMG how time flies!! I purchased HQ when I was 23 years old from the previous owner. I remember all I used to do was wash hair and sweep up. Now all these years later I have amazing clients and still love my job. Hair coloring and cutting are my specialty. I love when I can make my clients happy and I say "DON'T YOU JUST LOVE IT" and they do.

Charlotte Matera

After 24 years in the business, Charlotte's philosophy toward hair styling is simple: "I want everyone to look their best and be confident in themselves." And if a client really doesn't know what they want, she is always there to give suggestions on the latest trends in hair styling. "I thrive on new ideas," says Charlotte, "and believe you can never stop educating yourself in this industry." She and her husband of 20 years share their lives with a boxer named King and spend their free time with friends and family, and traveling to the Caribbean every chance we get.

I am co owner of HQ. Formulating hair color is my strength, whether it's matching the existing color of a new client, a color correction, or a whole new look from a picture. Helping people attain the look they want is my job!
