kAREN laroche / oWNER

Her early success as a stylist resulted in the creation of her own shop. Now more than a decade later that "shop" has become an extraordinary business. Her original location in Acton has transformed itself several times over the years and continues to create an "experience" for clients from Boston to Maine. Her award winning second location in Wayland (receiving the coveted title of "Salon Of The Year") has proudly earned the respect of local celebrities and prestigious guests. 

Her drive and passion for the industry along with an unwavering commitment for excellence has truly set Moodz apart. 

"I wish to create an experience that will allow people to reconnect with their true inner beauty by providing services that will enhance their overall well being and confidence."
- Karen LaRoche / Owner
