About Us

Bowfish Studios’ Imagination Stylists are hard-working, bubbly young women who are dedicated to making each of their guest’s dreams come to life. True, they’re rock star hair braiders and glitter masters, but most importantly they’re a tight-knit team that works together to create an environment of enchantment, possibility, and inspiration.

One of the most important features of Bowfish Studios — besides our transformations, of course! — is our ability to hold community events. Having deep roots in the local community is a huge part of who we are, so we love hosting events that bring neighbors and new friends together. From fundraisers for kids in need to holiday parties, daddy-daughter dates to Girl Gang Meet-Ups, the whole Bowfish team loves finding a reason to bring great people together!

Our Story

Established in 2017, Bowfish Studios was created as an addition to our existing retail store, Bowfish Kids, which opened in 2013.

(The Bowfish Kids story is right here!!)

The same year that Bowfish Kids opened, Co- Founder, Owner and Captain of Possibilities, Caitlin Quirk, had the idea of transforming little girls into mermaids during their summer vacations in Ocean City, New Jersey, where the store is located. After several years of developing the Bowfish brand, McKenna Robel, a local Native to Ocean City, joined the team & began helping bring the vision to life. Caitlin & McKenna worked together in turning a 400 square feet of retail space into a place like no other on the Jersey Shore. Inspired by the imaginations of Bowfish Kids’ young customers, Bowfish Studios is where mermaids, unicorns, fairies, dragons & sharks come to life!
