Meet Marlene Kennedy, the latest addition to the Tease Hair Boutique management team. Marlene joined Tease as the Assistant Manager in April, 2023 to help keep the business running smoothly and ensure efficiencies for clients and stylists. Originally from Saugus, Massachusetts, Marlene moved to Hanover over twenty years ago and has been local to the south shore since.
Graduating from Beauty Creators in Everett, Marlene is a licensed nail technician who no longer practices but has always enjoyed working in the beauty industry. A highly organized and ambitious individual, Marlene worked in administration and coordinator roles at organizations including Marriott, Boston Herald, and John Hanock for 17 years before returning to her passion for the beauty industry. For the past seven years, Marlene managed another salon on her own, gaining integral experience while meeting new clients and supporting stylist needs.
In Spring 2023, Marlene was looking for a growth opportunity and came across the job listing from Tease Hair Boutique on Indeed. Though she was unfamiliar with the salon at the time, the job sounded like a great opportunity and she was compelled to apply.
“I really love being part of a great team!” says Marlene, “Everyone here is so supportive of each other and it's just a great group of women.”
Marlene has been a great addition to the Tease Hair Boutique management team, immediately coming on board and learning the ropes. On the day to day, Marlene’s responsibilities include overseeing salon functions, ensuring stylists are supported and have what they need to keep their clients happy. Some days you’ll find her working behind the front desk, greeting clients and making sure their experience is satisfactory. Most recently, Marlene has been taking on the responsibilities of supply oversight, ordering necessary items to make sure the salon has what it needs and clients can find their favorite products on the Tease shelves.
When Marlene isn’t at Tease, she enjoys spending time with loved ones, particularly her two children and her dog, Luna. Her happy place is the beach, and days off are often spent at the ocean’s edge enjoying some sunshine and salt water.
Marlene also partakes in a variety of hobbies including cooking, listening to music, painting, and doing yoga. Her biggest inspiration is her mother, and if Marlene could take a trip anywhere she’d visit the Amalfi coast in Italy, making a stop in Tuscany along the way.
