Gloria Leonard

Gloria Leonard - On Broadway Salon MaryvilleNumber of years doing hair: 43+ years. My first job when we moved here was at the House of Hair, where I worked for Kenneth Melton & Jack Coker – for 38 years. I appreciate the “family feel” that comes from working with a great team of people for so long together.

What I love most about doing hair: The people and the friendships that result from spending time together. Clients become more like family. I love doing perms, roller sets, cuts and styles!

When I’m not at work, you can find me at home on the farm taking care of horses, cats or dogs.  When I’m not working with animals, I enjoy needlework, reading a great book, catching a movie with my husband, rides in the mustang and of course a little retail therapy.

What TV character/actor are you most like and why? I’d have to say one of the Golden Girls; I was raised in West Palm Beach and I love the camaraderie of the girls. I moved here in 1976.

One item on my bucket list I plan to accomplish in the next five years: I would like to go out west and to Alaska.

If I win the lottery, the first thing I would do is: Well, first, I would have to play the lottery – but if I did and IF I won, I would pay off bills, then focus on helping my family and my church.

Favorite restaurant: Cheddars

Favorite movie: Sleepless in Seattle

Growing up, I first thought I wanted to be a teacher, but by the time I finished high school, I enjoyed doing hair so I went to beauty school and I have enjoyed it ever since – never a dull moment!

That’s a bit about me, I hope to learn about you too – for an appointment, please call 865-982-4584.
