Uelmen celebrates 35 years as hair stylist

Ruth (Marnocha) Uelmen is celebrating her 35th year as a hair stylist at Marnocha Barbers and Stylists located downtown Pulaski. She joined the family business in 1978 after attending barber and hair styling school.

Up until July 2012, Ruth worked with her father, Don Marnocha, and her brother, Steve Marnocha. Don passed away in March of 2013, so Steve and Ruth now have ownership of the business. Before Steve and Ruth joined the business, Don, his father, and his brother worked in the shop together. The business is now almost 100 years old.

Ruth said, “It’s been wonderful getting to know so many great people. I appreciate their business and it’s just like a family getting together every time a customer comes in.”
