Teresa Henderson & Liz D’Ambra, Owners, HAIR GARDEN

Leading Ladies 2024


A visit to the hairdresser is more than just sitting down in the chair for a cut or color – it’s a therapeutic experience. At HAIR GARDEN, Teresa Henderson and Liz D’Ambra understand the value of creating a safe, welcoming space for their clients to hit pause and leave their refreshed look to trusted professionals. Building their own business at the ages of 25 and 30, the duo collaborated to create the salon they always wanted to see, and opened in 2023. Eager to stay current on industry trends, Teresa and Liz attend hair shows and classes, and love giving back to the community.

“We are both free spirits who like to do things our own way,” says Teresa. Along with offering cuts, coloring, and styling services, Teresa and Liz provide a shoulder to cry on, someone to laugh with, and occasional life advice. Soon, they’ll also be adding makeup and wedding services to their offerings. “There is no better feeling than turning the chair around and seeing happy tears and huge smiles after a big transformation!”
