JACQUELINE GOLEASH

  • Instagram

Owner & Stylist

That’s exactly what happened for Meraki owner and stylist Jacqueline Goleash. As a second-generation hair stylist, styling is in her blood. She grew up watching her Mom behind the chair and knew that’s exactly where she herself was meant to be. She spent 4 and a half years at a local salon before she fulfilled her lifelong dream of owning her very own salon and spa. With a passion, drive, focus, and support, she opened the doors to Meraki Salon and Spa in October 2017. 

 

Throughout the years she’s become an expert on not only hair color but hair design as well. Her natural talent, attention to detail, and her ability to be a true visionary are what sets her apart. Her services are in high demand and she’s forever thankful for her clientele that has grown more rapidly than she ever imagined possible. Her ultimate goal: for each client to see themselves as beautiful as who they truly are. 

 

Outside of the salon, Jacqueline is continuously learning not only as a stylist, but a business owner. She enjoys being with her family, traveling, and spending time at her lake house.

"It’s a beautiful thing when a passion and career come together.”
