More than 25 years ago, Wendy Grenfell created Ivan’s Studio as one of Tucson’s original “rental” salons. Ivan’s embraces the approach for stylists to develop their individual talents and become successful business people. It is because of this approach that Ivan’s has placed in the top three categories of Best Hair Salon, Best Nail Salon and Best Day Spa in the Northwest as nominated by the readers of the Explorer Newspaper for the past three years. Ivan’s is a safe place for stylists to do great work and keep far more of their income they generate for their families.
Likewise, Ivan’s stylists – Madeline, Jen and Gene – share a similar approach to serving clients, “We take the time to know our clients and the styles and colors that work for them,” Wendy explains, “We’re not avant-garde, but we offer suggestions to keep them looking current and fresh.
Wendy emphasizes professionalism and ongoing education and leading by example. Wendy is one of three American Board Certified Hair Colorists in Tucson and attends at least six educational events every year.
Wendy’s team shares her passion for giving back. Each year before Christmas Ivan’s Studios donates haircuts to more than 100 students at Tucson’s Nash Elementary school. Additionally they support child-focused charities, including the March of Dimes and Childhelp.
