Feel the Difference at La Difference Salon

After MaryLou Enoches’ five-decade run in cosmetology, she passes the torch to Christy and Dan Cosgrove, who expertly run the business.

From “Family Owned & Operated.”

While MaryLou Enoches is (mostly) retired after nearly 50 years in cosmetology and spends her time with husband Jack and grandkids Aidan and Devan Rose, La Difference Salon and Spa is run by her daughter and son-in-law Christy and Dan Cosgrove. “He’s the brains, I’m the heart,” Christy said.

“Christy’s passion for helping her guests feel their very best is a wonderful trait handed down from her mother,” Dan said. Indeed, Christy’s behind her chair four days a week, teaches color theory and salon professional development with L’Oreal Professional USA, and lends her 23-plus years of salon experience to representing Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer on QVC.

As for Dan, he does everything else, working closely with their award-winning team, overseeing and developing the company’s day-to-day operations. “Ten years ago, our biggest challenge was to be clear with our team on who’s the boss,” Dan said. “With their help, we’ve learned to clearly define our roles and responsibilities to ensure a cohesive work environment.” Today, the challenge is downtime from the business. “We set a time limit on talking about work at home.”

And the upside? “Mutual pride in this business. We love what we do and the guests we serve, and we’re grateful for the trust MaryLou has placed in us as we guide La Difference into its second generation.”
