About Us

History

Tangles Salon has a unique story of its own! Owner Kristin Green has 27 years of expertise in the hair industry. For the past 13 years, she has built her business strong by hard work, dedication and passion. With education being in the forefront, Kristin is an American Board Certified Haircolorist who trains her staff to the highest level of expertise.

Tangles Salon was located downtown in 2002 and in 2008 grew to a large location at 2122 Marietta Avenue in Lancaster. Kristin and her husband Bill purchased the property and with a lot of work restored the early 1900's building to a beautiful 2 story, glamorous salon.
