Founded in 1977 by Malcolm Bonawits, Malcolm's Haircutters has risen to the top of the salon industry. After serving four years in the United States Air Force, Malcolm enrolled in the Stroudsburg School of Cosmetology under the GI Bill. Upon graduation, he opened his first salon in Mt. Pocono, and worked behind the chair for twelve years. He went on to become one of the most successful stylists in the region. Today Malcolm is president and owner of Northeast Salons, Inc., a chain of eight salons located throughout Northeast Pennsylvania.
A main reason that Malcolm’s Haircutters is so successful is that we are constantly educating our employees. At our Corporate Headquarters in Mt. Pocono we have a hands-on training facility where classes are conducted monthly for all of our stylists. We host internationally-recognized educators from companies like Redken, Wella, and L'Oreal. With this kind of ongoing concentration on new trends, products, and communication, our staff always stays up to date on state-of-the-art techniques in hair care and styling.
That's why many cosmetology graduates make Malcolm's Haircutters their first choice for employment. We have a reputation for turning stylists into stars; because they are provided with everything they need to grow, in an industry that is constantly evolving. This caring philosophy extends to the many charitable causes supported by Malcolm's Haircutters. Organizations like the Salvation Army, Race for the Cure, American Cancer Society, ASPCA, Children's Advocacy Center and Pocono Medical Center. We also support several local charities and fundraisers in the communities surrounding our salons and we recently partnered with the SWB Railriders in the Baseball vs Cancer event. "It's the responsibility of any successful business to give back to the community that helped make it successful,” notes Malcolm. 40 years in business, 8 salons, and 1 reason: “Great Hair at a Great Price”. That is the cornerstone of our commitment to our clients.
