Salon Owner & Hairstylist
Over twenty years since first entering the salon world Jennifer finally decided to create her own salon. With a passion for hair and love of the industry she opened Meraki Salon in November 2017. Jennifer has received her advanced education with Vidal Sassoon, Paul Mitchell, and many more manufactures and celebrity stylists. She is a certified Great Lengths stylist and enjoys doing all types of extension applications. Having worked in several salons she wanted to create a professional yet fun environment where stylists can enjoy their craft and clients can relax and feel confident that their hair will be beautiful. Jennifer has a second career as a wife and mother of three wild boys. Her home life is the perfect balance to the salon world. Any time that is left over from this busy life is spent with her husband and best friend, probably at Costco and sometimes the beach!
Front Desk Coordinator
After many years teaching preschoolers I needed a change, and less drool! I found my dream job here at Meraki and love being a part of a team of awesome ladies. I am originally from West Virginia and moved to Charlotte to complete my degree in Elementary Ed at UNCC. I have been married for 25 years and am Mom to two beautiful girls and two lunatic dogs. I love shopping and working out and you will always find a diet coke in my hand or behind the desk! I try to use my southern hospitality to help the guests of Meraki feel welcome and keep everyones day running a little smoother. I am always here to help and can get an answer from Jenn faster that texting her...LOL!
After being asked recently by her 11 year old daughter, 'What would your dream job be?' Kelly answered, 'I'm doing it!' she truly sees her craft behind the chair as not only an opportunity to offer each client a unique style, but also to share in this beautiful life God has given us. After 20 years in this industry, and beginning as an apprentice she values continuing education as a tool to keep her passion for her craft alive. She has learned from many masters such as Sebastian, Paul Mitchell, and Vidal Sassoon. When not at the salon you can find Kelly with her two daughters and surrounded by friends and family, which she values the most.
Kelly is also a certified SOCAP extension specialist.
Hairstylist + Makeup Artist
Hey I’m Brooke, originally from Salisbury NC home of Cheerwine, not the Salisbury steak! 🤣 I became a Licensed cosmetologist in 2011 and have worked in a few salons over the years, even the salon on the Army base when my husband was in the military. Then I took a break from being in a salon and worked in the medical field because being a hair stylist and moving from city to city is a hard way to build clientele. However, I’ve never lost my passion for hair and makeup, and continued to do it at home for friends and family.
I really love the art of makeup and I am also a certified lash extensionist. While in cosmetology school I had such a passion for makeup and all my classmates wanted me to do their makeup Friday before we parted ways for the weekend and they had their Friday night face on! As a hairstylist I enjoy creating beautiful blonde hair with balayage and other blonding techniques.
When I’m not making people beautiful I’m spending time with my husband, daughter and friends and family. I love animals and being outdoors and love taking in all the beauty of natu
I got the privilege of getting into my career and passion before many of my friends were still in high school. I am a native to High Point and went to Leon's Beauty School. It was in the stars to come and work at Meraki Salon, a story Jenn will gladly tell if you ask her! One of the things I love about this industry is that every client is different and you get the chance to make someone feel beautiful after each service. I love doing color and balayage techniques and have had a lot experience with color corrections. Not sure if I like how much faith my coworkers have in me! LOL! When I'm not in the salon I am spending time with my family, boyfriend, and my dogs- a Jack Russell and Golden Doodle. My hobbies include shopping, crafting and traveling to different states and countries. I can't live without Mexican food and ice cream.
Hey hey hey! I am Kameron and I have wanted to do hair since I was 7! I have three brothers, so there was no one to practice on but I made it through school and have loved the salon life ever since. I am a mother of a sweet souled little boy and a wife to a man that I think is hot, even after a few years! I have a slight obsession with my three cats and two dogs and if you bring them up I will gladly show you pictures! If I am not doing hair then you may find me singing, dancing and even as a DJ at weddings and events. I am fun loving and love to laugh after all life is a drag with out it. My hair passion is coloring hair, the bolder the better! I also speak "blonde" and enjoy cutting short hair, both men and women!
Prior to embarking on my hair career 10 years ago, I was a stay at home mother of five awesome kids! My family moved to North Carolina from Michigan and have found that I prefer the warmer winters of the Carolinas. I have always had a passion for creating art and found that I could use that skill with hair as my medium! I like to get to know my guests and find all the beautiful things about them and make that to shine through in my hair creations. I most enjoy cutting short hairstyles and mastering the shape of curly hair. If I am not making mixed media art then you will find me enjoying my husband and family or the beauty of nature!
I found my calling six years ago when I started my journey in cosmetology school. I learned quickly that I wanted to specialize in skin care. Our face is uniquely ours and if someone is not confident with their skin it affects one's overall confidence. My joy is seeing positive changes in my clients skin and being able to help them feel as beautiful as they truly are. When I am not at work I am chasing after my adorable ad very busy daughter and enjoying the newlywed life! I am excited to be here at Meraki Salon and have the support of a bunch of awesome ladies!
