Profiles Styling Salon

Celebrating 25 years as small business owners is quite an accomplishment, especially in the salon industry that waded through a pandemic and fierce industry competition.  

Enter Profiles Styling Salon, which opened its doors in 1997 in Cranberry Township. Co-owners and friends Lori Buletko and Cheri Parise recognized the potential growth of the Township and planted roots at 10 St. Francis Way Unit #8.  

“From the start of our partnership, we envisioned a salon with a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere for both the client and staff,” Parise said. “Our priority has always been to learn about our clients’ needs and deliver exceptional services that make them feel attractive and treasured while being with us.”

What makes the salon so attractive to clients is the vast array of services offered and the commitment to supporting the non-profit community.  

Profiles staff are consistently educated with quarterly in-salon classes ranging from specialty color, formal hair styling, barbering, and modern cutting techniques. Over the years they have specialized in hair color making them one of the top Wella salons in the country. This has enabled them to attend classes in New York City including training with Nick Arrojo (from What Not to Wear fame) on razor hair cutting. Their esthetician is a Bioelements World Class skin care specialist, plus they offer natural nail services. They are also excited to introduce Bellami Hair extensions that offer many different options.   

Their commitment to non-profits is just as impressive as their services.

For the past 15 years, Profiles staff selects a non-profit to support for their annual charity event. Money is raised via a basket raffle with charming baskets donated by local businesses and vendors. Profiles also offers specials on retail products from which a portion of the proceeds are donated to the non-profit.  

This year’s non-profit is Sleep in Heavenly Peace, while other beneficiaries have included Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company, Butler County Veterans in Need, and Helping Paws. To date, the salon has donated more than $40,000 to non-profits.

“As a small business, it is very important to give back to the community because Cranberry Township residents make up a large part of our cliental,” added Pilot.

Providing a family atmosphere that supports community while offering exceptional salon services is indeed a treasure for Cranberry Township. Check out their amenities at
