Hi, my name is Merissa Luetjen, and I am so happy I am able to come to a job that I truly love! I have had the love and motivation for doing hair since I was four years old. It has always been my dream to own my own hair salon.
It all started when my father had long hair, all I wanted to do every night is try new, creative styles on him, and do the best I could! I have come a long ways since! I have graduated cosmetology and esthetics school from Stewart School in 2012 here in Sioux Falls, SD. While attending, I received the Business Student of the Year award. I am dedicated to making your hair look and feel beautiful!
I also have a passion for health and fitness, therefore I choose to use the most Natural, Organic, and Allergen-free hair color and products I can get my hands on. I definitely prefer to use better, high quality products. I love using the amazing brands, Organic Way aka OWAY and Original and Mineral aka O&M, for my hair products and color line.
I used to work for an Aveda salon and spa, Belle Touche, which I still love and respect. While I worked there I attained a lot of education frequently and have attended a class taught by the famous, John Raymond. I have taken additional classes to build skills to make me a better, more unique and talented stylist! I am constantly researching newer, healthier products to be able to provide the best products for your hair and you.
My belief is that my clients deserve both the healthiest and highest-quality products. I want you to have not just healthy hair, but a healthy lifestyle with my worry-free products.
Your beauty should reflect your best self!
I have been blessed with a wonderful family! My husband, Blake, children, Michael, Stella, and Gabriel. We are a very busy and active family!
My favorite thing to do besides hair is to run and spend time with my family! I started researching how to be a faster runner when I was 13, from there learned about eating organic and taking care of our bodies. I too have a passion for health as does my husband.
