The first salon opened in West Springfield, Virginia, and the enterprise has since expanded to become the largest privately held salon chain in the United States,[1] with locations up and down the East Coast, the Chicago metropolitan area, Florida, and New England. One of the founders, Ann Ratner, was originally from Great Britain.[2]

Privately held Ratner Companies operates Hair Cuttery, BUBBLES, Salon Cielo and Spa, ColorWrks, and Salon Plaza. With nearly 1,000 salons, Ratner Companies supports more than 14,000 stylists across 14 states. Hair Cuttery competes with Supercuts, Fantastic Sams, Sport Clips, Great Clips and several other franchised hair salon businesses.
