All Welcome at Meraki Salon

As some of you may or may not know, we’ve been working to make important changes here at Meraki.  We have always strived for inclusivity, but realized that lately our vendors, artists, and ultimately salon as a whole did not represent that.  Starting this month, we’re not only including more BIPOC vendors and artists, but we’re also official members of The Dress Code Project.

Keep reading for more information.

We want to support the incredible black artists and makers of Raleigh, and have a better, balanced representation of our beautiful community in our salon.  Changed Impressions Jewelry has started doing pop ups on Saturdays (the next one will be July 25th!), where you can purchase hand-stamped sterling silver and brass pieces, including custom pieces made on site!

Additionally, we’ll have Coco Body Co. as a new permanent body care line for purchase in our salon.  We are talking some of the most gorgeous looking and smelling soaps and skincare products, not just in the Triangle are, but in general.  We can’t wait to roll these out, and for you all to snag them!

The Dress Code Project is a global alliance of salons/shops committed to providing positive, gender-affirming services for LGBTQ2S+ clients, with the goal that ALL people have the opportunity to access services and express themselves without the constraints of conforming to traditional gender norms. We are thrilled to be official members of this alliance and important resource.

We hope to always do what we can to learn more, know more, and be better, creating a safe space for all of our clients and an accurate representation of the community we are so proud to be a part of.

If you didn’t already know, welcome to our salon. Anyone, everyone.
