“Sisters Meredith and Sara are sincere in their mission to offer affordable, natural (as in chemical-free & organic) beauty products & services”

My husband and I visited MERA salon (he: for a haircut and me: for a full hair color), a couple of weeks ago, just days before leaving for our first ever kid-free (in 10 years) vacation, and we couldn’t have had or asked for a better send off than the services provided by Meredith and Sara.

Sisters Meredith and Sara are sincere in their mission to offer affordable, natural (as in chemical-free & organic) beauty products & services, and both were genuinely sweet and fun, very accommodating, and professional (always a welcome from anyone who chooses to work with the public right?)

MERA’s intimate, quiet space was not only free of the usual chemical smell, but was truly conducive to a peaceful salon/spa experience.

Meredith updated my husband’s buzz cut hairstyle, and I cannot stop staring at his sideburns haha. Thank You, Meredith! And I loved the way my own hair looked, felt and smelled days after our first visit. Still do. I did buy their Simply Organic Shampoo and nail polish remover. Both were very affordable and safe and are proving to be of exceptional quality.

My husband and I plan to return to MERA, and hope Meredith and Sara will be around for a very long time. Their vision & mission are long overdue in Chicago.
