Melinda Hooper, Owner of Designer's Denn Salon and Spa

Melinda Hooper has over 30 years in the salon industry. Her vast experience makes her the busiest and most successful artist, educator and mentor in central Pennsylvania. Her entrepreneurial spirit and ambitious work ethic leads her to New York, at least twice a year, to study and perfect the latest trends and techniques in her industry. Melinda's dream was to not only own a successful spa and salon, but to provide and cultivate an environment of continuous education for herself, and her staff.

The culmination of 2 years of research and planning came to fruition in October 2002 when Designer's Denn Salon and Spa opened as the first full service salon and spa in the area. Melinda's goal was simple: To establish the highest standards for continuing the reputation of Designer's Denn Salon and Spa. Melinda is a hands-on manager in the day-to-day business.
