My name is Patricia Ukropec and I opened Swarthmore Hair Studio as an Aveda Concept Salon in 1982. I am a Pennsylvania Licensed Cosmetology Teacher and also Cosmetology Licensed in the state of Florida.


My daughter Helen apprenticed under me and is also Cosmetology licensed in both Pennsylvania and Florida. She functions as Salon Operations Manager and Senior Educator.


I am an Aveda makeup artist and we are both Certified Hair Colorists as well as Certified Barbers concentrating in updated men's designer haircuts.


When our schedules allow, we are busy working with the Aveda Show Team doing hair and makeup on runway models for Fashion Week in New York.


We continue to donate our time to the "Look Good Feel Better" Program helping cancer victims learn to properly care for their hair and skin during cancer treatment.

We strongly believe that learning never ends and we are committed to attend continuing education programs and expand our exposure to changing trends in our profession.


Classes and workshops are in New York, Minneapolis, Florida,Portland Oregon, Los Angeles, London and Paris, Some of our work is shown on video in the salon.

We are active in the Professional Beauty Association and the International Hair Color Exchange and all updated information is shared in the Salon.


Swarthmore Hair Studio provides the ambiance for an escape from the hustle and bustle of the outside world and yet projects the image of Manhattan in Swarthmore. Our motto is sincere and has been our objective since inception, "We Make Beautiful People."
