Why You Need to be Here!

We are a Kevin Murphy Session Salon and a Holistic Hair Tribe Partner Salon, utilizing all the resources and support these certifications include to provide the safest & cleanest salon space for both our guests and team.

We aim to consistently care and connect to our guests using organic, eco-friendly, cruelty free, low toxic hair care products to produce a high end customizable craft hair salon experience. We intend to fix, reuse, recycle and repurpose whenever possible.

We strive to become the best hair salon and in turn deliver the best both in our craft, our industry and in our communities here in Raleigh. It is our desire for all who enter our doors to be treated uniquely and with respect, leaving with a sophisticated and trendy style/color/cut and feeling exceptional!

What is Meraki?

The word Meraki means doing something with total love and pure soul, leaving a little piece of yourself in your creative work.

We invite you to join us in our endeavors to promote a business primarily focused on people through innovation, creativity and sustainability in our hair salon on Hillsborough St. in downtown Raleigh.

Our passion for an eco-conscious and eco-friendly environment in our hair salon is supported by not only the products we provide (many of our brands free of all the “bad” ingredients, including ammonia) but also through ongoing education, to ensure we reach this goal effectively while remaining current on the most innovative non-toxic and low-toxic professional hair techniques and products.

We sincerely believe that supportive communities are the backbone of any local successful business and we love being apart of Live on Hillsborough Street and Shop Local Raleigh, as a salon near you! We encourage all in Raleigh, Durham, Cary and surrounding areas to stop in and see for yourselves the custom hair experience we are known for.

Summer is the best stylist around!!! My husband and I both get our hair done by her and are always pleased! If you’re looking for an amazing color job or cut you need to book with her immediately! Great atmosphere to relax in and leave feeling gorgeous and pampered!”

“Amazing place, everyone is friendly and great at their craft. I found them through Instagram and got my hair done with Caroline. She was amazing and I’m so happy with the brunette balyage she did. I definitely will be going back.”

-Lisa N.

“I had a wonderful experience. Everyone was incredibly helpful! Rachel did a wonderful job explaining the haircut and how I could go about styling the new cut. She was very diligent in making sure she got exactly what I wanted, and she was excellent conversation.”
