Courtney Hehl is our ah-mazing Salon Coordinator. We would be lost without her. Courtney has the unique ability to maintain our appointment book (which is not easy!), works so well with clients, stylists and the owner (also not easy!), and does this all with style and grace. She’s always smiling, she’s always professional and she’s thorough and efficient with whatever she is doing. Courtney started here part-time in Dec of 2005 when she was only 16 years old. She has grown into such a fine young woman, loving wife to Nathan and fabulous mom of Camden and Austin. We adore her and you will, too!

Carly Merz

Carly Merz is our evening and Saturday Front Desk Salon Coordinator. We plucked her from our client list knowing she loved the salon, loved the staff and would be fantastic with our clients. She is always professional and yet friendly. Carly joined our team in 2015. She works 3 jobs and recently got married to the love of her life – Christopher. If you call for an appointment in the evening or on a Saturday, you may get to talk to her!
