“I had such an amazing experience at Meraki. They have a complimentary bar for alcohol/tea/coffee/infused water while you wait. I got lash extensions for the first time. Nivea did a great job and gave me exactly what I was looking for. I had to come in the next day because one of the lashes were scratching my eye and the owner Jen actually came in just to fix the lash. Her and her husband are super sweet and personable. They take their time and make sure your happy. I will definitely be back for fills in plus more. Thank youuu! ”

“Last night I went to Meraki for the first time and had the pleasure of being one of Toms clients. When I first walked in I was very nervous from being let down 2 times prior with my hair. I was first greeted by Jevi and she was so sweet and knew my name right off the bat! Setting the first impression bar high. Then I was met by Morgan one of the assistance, again amazingly kind and nice! Then I was met by Tom who took the time to hear what I wanted and what had happened before, making sure I understood where my hair was and where I wanted it to be and how he was going to achieve it. He made me feel so comfortable, he knew what he was talking about, and I trusted him completely. The whole time I was there I was taken care of by both tom and Morgan but the whole team was there helping, learning, and listing. I had never seen that before and it was so amazing to see. They all made sure I was comfortable, had what I needed and offered me drinks. When everything was said and done I burst into tears because I was so happy and grateful! Not enough could be said about the people there and the atmosphere. The owner was there taking photos of the end result and was happy that i was happy, they all love what they do and they do it very very well! I recommend this place to anyone! I will gladly be coming back and I already have my next appt booked!! ”

— Morgan Roach 04/13/2018 img img img img img

“Everyone at the front desk, stylists, hair washers/assistants, etc. are always super kind! They offer you an extensive list of complimentary drinks when you walk in as well as a warm towel and neck wrap. ??They also always check up on you to see if you need anything! Jennie is my stylist. She is the sweetest girl and actually listens to what you want. She always does an amazing job on my blonde hair! I highly recommend her! I am always very happy with my color, cut and blow out by her! ??”

“Jenna is the best stylist I’ve ever had! No one cuts my thick hair quite like does. Her cutting skills leave my thick mane feel much lighter, without it looking like I removed the bulk and I’m still able to wear it long, down to my lower back. Jenn’s haircut for me lasts for a very long time, because it never loses the shape. The shampoo was also amazing. I never felt more comfortable, and welcomed in any other salon, but Meraki! ”

I don't think I have ever seen someone so passionate about what they do and that is probably why he is so good at what he does. He is definitely a perfectionist. Because he is so young I really underestimated his talent. He made some suggestions, I took them and I am extremely happy with the results. I have been receiving so many complements.”
