And Just Like That…It’s Another Year In The Books For Meraki!
It has been another whirlwind of a year, and to close it out we wanted to take a moment to recap all the good that has happened.
2021 was a roller coaster with continuing to navigate through the pandemic, but Meraki has come out stronger despite it. We celebrated many work anniversaries and promotions, as well as introduced plenty of new faces to the team. The Raleigh location added another year under their belt and the Durham location hit the one-year mark. Both locations also had fun celebrations for their respective locations’ anniversaries with local, small businesses coming in as vendors and shopping discounts for clients. The stylists went through an abundance of training classes to further excel in their craft and got to take part in a large creative opportunity in October.
Our managers Ashley and Summer received Meraki Mentor awards and were named Master Mentors for the years of hard work they have continuously poured into the salon! Jess is now also training to become a mentor to help teach our future co-artists.
We welcomed salon coordinators Katherine, Chloe, Kamisha, Emma Jean, and Indi. With new front desk staff, it was decided that we needed someone there to help keep everything organized and be there as another way to offer help when needed. With that, Katherine was promoted to the Front Desk Manager! We are so thankful for her fresh ideas and guidance on how to keep on improving.
The Durham location has been going through gradual changes, starting with the redo of the shampoo bowl area, and more changes are coming in 2022! We have also welcomed our co-artist Briana and Level 1 stylists Emily, Megan, Aaron and Brianna. Bekah also was promoted to a Level 1 stylist after successfully completing her co-artist program. Katie and Mara both celebrated a full year at Meraki.
Raleigh welcomed Shelby earlier this year and celebrated the work anniversaries of Alyssa (2 years) and Chloee (3 years), who also received promotions to Level 2 and Level 3 stylists. We congratulated Kerry on her promotion to a Level 2, Rhiannon completing her co-artist training and becoming a Level 1 stylist, and most recently Grace completed their co-artist training and became a Level 1 stylist. We can’t wait to see what growth lies ahead for the next year.
With every good thing that happens, we want to continue to thank all of our clients for coming to the salon and choosing to stay with us throughout their hair journey. We invite you to join us in ringing in the New Year and seeing what 2022 brings!
