our history

The inception of GENEVA Hair Studio pays tribute to a stylists dream, cultivated by her grandmother's influence. Owner and master stylist Jaime Zentz was born to be a hair designer. In 1970 her grandparents, Geneva and Don Chanley, owned and operated "The Swirl Curl" hair salon near Irvington. Geneva planted the seed that Jaime would nurture and grow. As a child, Jaime would sit for hours watching her grandmother, and ultimately fell in love with the artistry of hair design. Now, after nearly a decade in the industry, Jaime Zentz brings her destiny full circle and opens her hair studio, GENEVA, in historic Irvington.
