The Foilery

Best Hair Salon

Neon signs and a cheerful gallery wall greet clients of The Foilery hair salon in Holly Springs, owned by sisters Jennifer Hawley and Karen Cribb.

“I’m in the salon more than I am in my house,” says Hawley. “I want it to feel like an extension of my home.”

In addition to the sisters, eight independent stylists work in The Foilery transforming area residents with cut, color, extensions, and updos.

“It’s a place where stylists can be themselves,” says Hawley — and, consequently, perform their best work, while allowing clients to feel pampered.

“It’s an honor to be able to transform people and to give them a place to relax and chill,” Hawley says.

Christine Walorz, Walorz Insurance

Best Insurance Agent

“It is so satisfying to know I am helping someone know their family will be taken care of,” says Christine Walorz, an independent insurance agent specializing in life insurance — “the most important kind.”

Walorz works with clients of all ages, from babies to seniors, to find the best coverage for each unique situation. As an independent agent, she represents dozens of insurance companies.

“I can find the right protection for my clients. It’s not one size fits all,” Walorz says.

Under the life insurance umbrella, Walorz also assists individuals and small-businesses owners with tax-free retirement solutions and debt elimination.

“It is so important to have life insurance that you own, not just through your employer, to give you peace of mind and enable you to take care of your family if you aren’t there.”

“I love what I do,” she says. “I still celebrate every piece of coverage that gets approved.”
