heart + soul


If you want to locate a business’ soul, you’ll find it in its leader.  

In 1975, my father opened a small barbershop located in Park Ridge NJ,   It quickly became the hub of the town.   After school, I would walk to the shop, sweep the floors, and watch my father cut hair.  As I matured I realized  those early days were life lessons in dedication, reputation and forging relationships,  Sadly, in 1985 my father succumbed to cancer.  At the age of 18 I stepped into the role of Owner/Stylist of Mania Hair Studio. 

I have lead the Mania Hair Studio team for over half my life .  It is more than a business,  it is my heartbeat.      

-Phil Mania
