Ann Ratner

COO Upscale Brands, Co-Founder of Ratner Companies & Salon Professional
Ann came to the United States from England when she was 19. Her mother had one wish for her: “I just want you to love life, and I know there’s a great world out there.” Ann has taken that wish and turned it in to one of the most well-known salon companies in the U.S. today. As a Vidal Sasoon trained stylist, Ann brought her cutting-edge, technical skills to Ratner Brands which continues to expand today by offering free training to all salon professionals. She also developed the proprietary haircare line, Cibu, with the input of Salon Professionals and her experience behind the chair. Additionally, Ann’s philanthropy work is a big part of her passion. She is currently building salons in women’s shelters where Ratner Companies does business. This allows Salon Professionals the opportunity to give back in the communities where they work and live and provides a positive impact to the women receiving the hair services.
