Regina and Alissa, co owners of Salon Six Eight Five, first met as assistants in the beginning of their careers which they soon realized they both had the same work ethic, which included passion for hair and drive for success. After two decades of being behind the chair and a full clientele, it was time to embark on a new adventure together. Regina and Alissa decided New Jersey would be the perfect place to cater to their clients that had moved out of the New York area to enjoy a more suburban life in beautiful New Jersey. With the love for the Shrewsbury, Red Bank area and all it’s charm they found the perfect location, 685 Broad Street, which soon became the name and home of their first salon. They shared the vision of a sophisticated and chic, yet home-y environment to work and provide a luxurious salon experience for clients.
