Teresa Zanelotti-Whitten is a daughter, sister, mother, wife and Nonna (Grandmother in Italian). Teresa started her career in cosmetology at age 19. After working in several salons, she decided to venture out on her own. With financial assistance from her parents, Joseph and Doris Zanelotti, Teresa and her sister Joanie opened the first Julians Hair Designers in Camp Springs, MD (PG County). The year was 1981. At age 23 she had a lot of responsibility for being a salon owner and single mom. Over the years Teresa has employed many outstanding Hairdressers, Receptionists, Shampoo Technicians, and Stylist. She has felt the ups and downs of being a business owner. But through her travels she would never trade her profession for anything else. As Teresa says “What job can you do being creative and receive instant gratification on a daily basis.” Teresa says “This is an amazing feeling”.
Over the years Teresa and her staff have continually given back to the community. Teresa was appointed by Governor Schaffer and served on the “State Board of Cosmetology” for 9 years. The salon has raised money for Avon Breast Cancer Awareness for several years now.
Over the past 34 years Teresa has participated in continuing education in her career. She carries a Senior Cosmetologist License which you receive after 2 years of regular license and testing by the State Board of Cosmetology. She has spent uncounted hours on continual education in her field.
Teresa also works with her husband David Whitten in Real Estate. Teresa has helped him with his business in Residential Appraisal. Teresa also carries a MD Real Estate License.
I’ve been doing hair for 32 years. I worked for another salon for the first 2 years, then Teresa and I opened Julians Hair Designers in 1981. Our parents, Joe and Doris Zanelotti, were our silent partners. Doris did all the daily books, and I did payroll. After moving the salon to Dunkirk in 1996, Joe and Doris turned everything over to Teresa and myself. I now do all the bookwork, and still work behind the chair part-time. I specialize in skin care, nail services and hair. I’m very excited that my daughter, Ashley and step-daughter, Natalie, have joined us to continue to service our clients.
