I chose the name “Meraki” very carefully. I love quotes with meaning and purpose. I wanted a name that was more than a salon. A name that was a mission statement. A name that we could grow with. (trust me so many more ideas are floating around on what’s next to come). Meraki is a name that means something to everyone, both inside and outside our walls.
Meraki : to do something with soul, creativity, and love; to put a piece of yourself into your work
Hi, I’m Crystal Leisner, with encouragement, help and support from many close friends but especially from Marcie Wilkening, I opened Meraki Hair & Body in August 2017. The idea had been growing for years and the search for the right space was endless. Everything happens for a reason.
I visualized a place where clients could trust everyone and receive their services in one place. I visualized a place where clients could enjoy their time here, their service, or even just to hang out and visit. We all ask for referrals. You the clients, of who we go to for other services, and us the artists, of new clients to sit in our chairs and lay in our beds. The solution seemed simple. Why shouldn’t we all be in one place?
