Generations Salon & Day Spa ------ Revive. Renew. Restore.


Owned and operated by Renee' Jankowsky, wife and mother of four boys.  Renee' originated from New York where she worked in her mother's salon for 5 years.  Renee' has had her cosmetology license since 1993 and, with advanced international education she and her team have developed a loyal following since opening Generations in 2002. Generations offers the best salon and spa services in the region combined with a renewing experience while bringing out natural beauty. Renee has always had a tremendous passion in entrepreneurship and while running the salon & spa, 5 years later, she felt a clothing boutique would be a wonderful compliment to offer at Generations. Her company is one of Raleigh's rare team based salon & spas.  With pride she runs her business with health benefits,  paid vacation time, holidays and team bonuses!  The Generations team likes to think of their reservations as an experience rather than a service.  Generations serves a growing clientele that includes women, men and children of all ages.  A complete compliment of salon and spa services are offered - expert hair styling & coloring, brow & lash tints,  complete waxing services, manicures, pedicures, facials, massages, body treatments, ear piercing & airbrush spray tanning.

Kori is originally from Syracuse, New York. While she was attending college, her mom encouraged her to try her hand at cosmetology. Kori decided to listen to her mom's advice and began attending the International Institute of Hair Design here in Raleigh.

She keeps up with the latest trends through continued training and has even broadened her skill-set to include airbrush tanning. Her specialties include color formulating and corrective color. As the current general manager here at Generations, the only thing she enjoys more than helping guests feel beautiful is spending time with her family.
