Madison Who’s Who Recognizes Lenny Holtzman
In the early years of Lenny Holtzman’s career, he went by the moniker of Lenny Curtis. He received his training through a hairdresser apprenticeship program in Europe, a form of education he praises and has advocated for in America for thirty years. Straight from his apprenticeship he went to style hair in New York City at Paul Mitchell on 5th Avenue for two years. At just 19 years old, Lenny created a wig company called London Wiggery Ltd., which expanded into 17 wig stores in Boston and New York. After he sold his wig company, Lenny opened his first salon called “Hair I Am” on Charles Street in Boston, followed by a second salon on Newbury Street in Boston. Lenny arrived on the Cape in 1982 and established Roots in the Dunfey’s Hotel which is now the Sheraton Hyannis. For ten years, he provided hair services for all the entertainers at the Melody Tent and also became the hair care provider for several high-profile clients and weddings that included the Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver wedding, the Caroline Kennedy’s wedding, and the recent Patrick Kennedy wedding.
Lenny Holtzman’s business has succeeded via word of mouth referrals from very happy clients. He prides himself on the technique of hair cutting he developed which came from historic and scientific study of ancient Egyptian hair design, hence the nod to Cleopatra in the Roots logo. This study led to the discovery that cutting hair from the bottom up while working with gravity allows the hair to fall in perfect place naturally without the use of products or styling equipment. His clients come to him so they can be assured of a hairstyle that will still look beautiful after a swim in the ocean and letting it air dry. His ability was brought to the Kennedys’ attention after Lee Radzwill’s became a client of his.
