Denise did her first haircut looking out from CONTACT US
the inside. Patricia her mother has been in
industry before Denise was even born. It
has always been sort of a joke….Denise
was born with silver shears in her hand
instead of a silver spoon. Her mother
worked for other salons, until her children
were not small anymore,she then opened
her own salon. This salon was in
Bridgeport.She named it Shear
Renaissance. Denise came on board to
work with her mother for the last three
years her mother had the salon in
Bridgeport. Patricia had the salon for nine
years,before moving to Chicago for two yrs.
Her mother then moved back to Pa. and
opened Shear Renaissance in Strasburg.
Denise worked with her mother again in
Strasburg for 20 years.Then the shop was
moved to 103 Duncan Street Lancaster,and
her mother had the shop for 9 years.2020
Denise came back and took the salon over.
She had left her mother’s salon for three
years. This is where DC Hair Studio starts.It
is true that what they say things always
come full circle.Denise`s children grew up
and now she opened her salon,like her
mother. Also when her mother started in the
industry toners were very popular,they sort
of went out of use, now we use them all the
time again…..just some hair trivia.
About Denise Cantey

My motto has always been I will sleep when
I am dead!! I love Fitness I have been into
fitness since I was a kid. I rode a horse all
of my life as a kid. I trained everyday, 3 day
eventing, for those of you that is horse lingo
for olympic style riding. Growing up on a
farm gave me very diversified
opportunities.I rode a dirt bike and four
wheelers. When there was snow we rode
snowmobiles and if there was no snow we
went to Olde Forge N.Y. to play.
I traded the horses in for a Harley, I
have been on a street bike for 23 years.
I love hiking and the outdoors. I have
been a personal trainer for 25 yrs, this is
more of a hobbie, my true passion is my
career…..it is not a job, it is me.
