If clients wonder about the meaning of the name Meraki, the question is answered once they sit at the salon’s chic color bar, where both the name and the meaning are spelled out on the wall--‘to do something with soul, creativity or love; to leave a piece of yourself in your work.’

Owner’s comment: “A frosted brick accent wall opens up to our creative area, where floating, white double-sided stations are matched with soothing grey styling chairs and Freestyle dryers.”
