Jen Stern, Owner/Master Stylist, Salon Riza & Day Spa

Jen Stern

Owner/Master Stylist

Jen Stern was born in Albania. In her hometown, she owned a large, successful, upscale full-service salon. This was unheard of for a woman in Albania. Her dreams grew and in 1997, she left Albania and came to the United States. Ever since then, she has been working to once again own her own salon.

Jen honed her skills and built her clientele through hard work. She continued to study her craft and attended every continuing education class available to her, constantly learning the newest techniques in cut and color. Jen has now realized her dream and opened the beautiful Salon Riza located in picturesque North Andover. Jen has studied under the best instructors in Milan, Italy, London, England, New York and Las Vegas. She is one of only 1,700 American Board Certified Colorists in the country.

Jen is a highly-educated, professional Master Stylist proficient in cutting, coloring, color correction, hair extensions, hair analysis and maintenance regimens.

I’ve been to few salons in the area and nothing compares to the services I’ve received here. From the reception area to the salon chair you are in, a comfortable environment with a friendly staff. First time client and it was outstanding. I showed my stylist what I wanted and she did exactly that. She was amazing. Definitely not going anywhere else.
