What Makes Us Unique

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. Our passion for a green and eco-friendly environment in our hair salon is supported by not only the products we provide (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 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. 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! We encourage you to try our custom Doterra Shampoo Experience, it’s unlike any other! It is our priority to create a place for like minded people to enjoy peace, calm and satisfaction on multiple levels while in a fabulous modern high end hair salon in downtown Raleigh. We look forward to meeting and working alongside you!

Mission & Culture

Our aim is to build an environment in which people are proud and enthusiastic to support; where they are free to learn, explore and share. We prioritize those who walk through our door anticipating their needs and desires, going beyond their expectations and leaving feeling refreshed, satisfied and appreciated.

We strive to be a sustainable hair salon, minimizing waste from the companies we choose to do business with and their products, to the salon supplies we use to ensure minimal to no packaging. We seek to partner with those that are eco-friendly in using natural and organic ingredients creating more inventive products. We collaborate with local Raleigh entrepreneurs giving them a supportive platform in which to showcase their original designs. We intend to fix, reuse, recycle and repurpose whenever possible.

We have an ongoing curriculum in the apprenticeship program that will ensure consistent, exceptional service as we are always learning not only individually but as a whole. We remain current on hair trends using the latest artistic techniques and resourceful products. We aim to become the best and in turn deliver the best both in our craft and in our communities here on Hillsborough St. We believe you get back in life what you give out!
