ABOUT OUR ROOTS
OUR STAFF

MAGGIE GENTZ
OWNER/STYLIST

IRONS+ANCHORS Hair Studio has a fresh new idea behind bringing beauty into this area with its raw industrial look. We have re-purposed materials and salvaged materials, from "unusable" parts into works of art. We wanted our guests to feel the love and energy that went into creating this space within the 1200-square-foot building! 

We have a stunning Color Bar where guests will enjoy being involved with their color processing while sipping on a beverage, playing on our iPads, and charging their phones--revitalization for both the spirit and the electronics! We specialize in Schwarzkopf Professional Color and the latest hair trends. 
 

 At IRONS+ANCHORS, our stylists will help to reveal the look you've been wanting. We are current with today's top trends and most relevant hairstyles. Our goal is to provide you with an unforgettable experience. Come in and see how we combine the swankiness of New York with the convenience of being close to home.
 

"It's important that our guests feel at home with us! It's important to me that our guests know that we aren't your normal small town salon where everyone's business is spread around... I pride myself knowing I've taken the measures to ensure pure professionalism from my staff!"

  Maggie's illustrious career began 13 years ago, here in Allentown, NJ. After high school, she studied at the Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, CA to earn her haircutting certification as well as her foundational color skills. The rigorous coursework included intensive studies in both cut and color. She later earned advanced styling certifications from
Deva Curl, Brazilian Blowout, and Schwarzkopf Professional.
Her expertise was recognized by Reem Acra and she was recruited to style hair for New York's Fashion Week in the fall of 2013 and an exclusive runway event for Giorgio Armani, with both events under
the lead of Didiea Milage.
 In 2013, she became an ASK EXPERT educator for Schwarzkopf Professional. Following her certification in Las Vegas in early November 2013, she quickly advanced to ASK EXPERT 2 and is currently one of only two certified educators in the entire state of New Jersey. In her role as ASK EXPERT, she facilitates the training of her stylist colleagues in salons throughout New Jersey and New York.
Maggie is passionate about her work and enjoys the opportunity to spread the passion she has for hairstyling and Schwarzkopf Professional products and techniques. She enjoys working side by side with the best in the industry and mentoring novices in the field. 
Maggie is the proud owner of IRONS+ANCHORS. She is a voracious learner and incorporates experiences from every aspect of her life. Her determination and creativity motivates her to hone her skills and provide a relaxing and pleasurable experience for her clients. 
She is equally proud of her personal life and to be the mother of 3 amazing boys and a wifey to her hubby! Her favorite food is pickles.
