07/28/2009

Glen Goldbaum 72 in Red Bank invite local artists to showcase their work during the salon's 'creative nights' events.

Online PR News – 28-July-2009 – – Glen Goldbaum 72, Red Bank’s fastest growing salon, uses their space to support local artists, photographers and musicians. Since opening on Red Bank’s west side a little over a year ago, the salon has used its well-appointed brick studio interior and spacious outdoor garden to host live performances by local artists, art exhibits and major celebrations.

The salon draws its name from owner and master stylist, Glen Goldbaum. Originally a New York stylist and Vidal Sassoon Educator, Glen was intrigued with Red Bank’s hip Westside. “I felt I had unearthed a mountain of gold. I couldn’t believe the style, attitude and personality. It was screaming with opportunity, and I could hear it.”

Upon opening his Red Bank location in June of 2008, Glen sought to add energy and excitement to the West Side. According to Glen, he didn’t want his space to be limited to the usual salon services. He launched ‘Creative Nights’ shortly after opening, as a way to allow others to get to know is salon and as a platform to introduce local artists, musicians and photographers.

Since opening, Glen and staff have played host to local favorites such as Def Jam recording artist Laura Warshauer, singer/songwriter Quincy Mumford, and Random Test, Red Bank’s hottest Reggae band. The events draw crowds of 100+ people who come to meet Glen, dance, party and mingle.

Glen’s unique business style has been a huge success. Now, just over 1 year since opening, Glen has added 10 additional staff members (he started with just one) and is averaging upwards of 75 new clients per month.

This summer, Glen has more events planned including live concerts and a burlesque show. “It’s all about feeling good. For me, it doesn’t matter whether it’s because we just gave them a great cut, or because they just enjoyed listening to some live music in our outdoor garden. If we can make people look and feel their best, I’m happy.
