The Malcolm's Advantage
Our stylists receive ongoing education in our corporate training facility to keep them up to date with the latest styles & techniques.
From kids to adults we service all ages and offer senior day and military discounts.
It is with very heavy hearts that we announce that our beloved founder and president, Malcolm Weston Bonawits, has passed away. The company he founded 41 years ago is still in operation, and all of us who work in it will sorely miss him.
Born in Wilkes-Barre, PA and raised in Plymouth, PA, in his youth he was an athlete and in later years an avid golfer. Malcolm was also a proud veteran, having enlisted after graduation from Plymouth High School and serving in the U.S. Air Force as a crew chief on C-130 airplanes during the Vietnam conflict. After receiving his honorable discharge he attended East Stroudsburg University and Stroudsburg School of Cosmetology, and upon graduation in 1976 he started his company, opening his first salon as owner-operator in Mount Pocono that same year.
Malcolm had a lifelong interest in politics and civic affairs, and strongly believed in being involved in his community. He has actively participated in several local, state and national organizations throughout his career. Malcolm received several honors during this time, among them induction into the Hall of Fame of the Pennsylvania Association of Private School Administrators (PAPSA), the Role Model in the Cosmetology Industry recognition from the Cosmetology Advancement Foundation, a nomination for the Salon Entrepreneur of the Year - Global Salon Business award, and a “Bizzy” award from the Pocono Mountains Chamber of Commerce. But his proudest accomplishment was always his company. A testament to his abilities and his gift for people are the many stylists who ten, twenty, and almost thirty years after they started remain with the company and consider him both a beloved father figure and an admired mentor.
In addition to his many accomplishments, business acumen, and political savvy, he will be remembered for his love of family, his loyalty to his friends, and his passion for animals, especially for his beloved Basset hounds. In lieu of flowers, charitable contributions may be made in his memory to the Animal Welfare Society of Monroe (AWSOM), 3129 Godfrey Ridge Road, Stroudsburg, PA 18360, or to the Pocono Wildlife Rehabilitation and Education Center, 361 Cherry Street, Stroudsburg, PA 18360.
The Malcolm’s Haircutters team he established and mentored is committed to continuing his legacy, providing quality hair services and excellence in customer relations in the same way it has been done during the past 41 years.
A memorial service is planned for April.
