Kelly Ferguson



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.

Aly Scherer moved from New Jersey to North Carolina in early 2018 after recieving her cosmetology license from Jolie Health and Beauty Academy! She was hired with Meraki Salon as an assistant and has shown her true passion for hair cutting & styling, while assisting with many weddings in the area.

Brooke Mullins


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 and worked in the medical field because being a hair stylist and moving to a new city is hard! However, I’ve never lost my passion for hair and makeup and the excitement of working in a salon.
I really love the art of makeup and am 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 nature.

Kaitlyn Love


Esthetician + Makeup Artist


 I am a Licensed Esthetician and Make-Up Artist. At a very young age I fell in love with everything skincare and make-up. With over 4 years of experience, I strive to not only provide excellent services, but also to make my services an experience my clients will never forget. I welcome any task no matter how simple or complex. I am determined to work personally with each and every client to meet his or her specific needs, especially when it comes to skincare. My approach to make-up is simple: to enhance my client’s natural features, not mask them.
I’m originally from Nashville, Tennessee but I’ve called North Carolina home for 22 years now. When I’m not working, I’m spending time with my husband and 2 year old highly energetic boxer. I received my Esthetic’s license from Leon’s Beauty School, but I also have a Bachelors in Science in Psychology from Liberty University. My hobbies include adventuring, painting, socializing and food! 💋
