Aimee McMeekin

Professional Hairstylist

I began my career in the beauty industry in 2004. My passion for it started in my early childhood. I love producing custom color from rich brunettes, glamorous blondes to fun reds. I equally enjoy shaping all lengths of hair and personalizing every cut to each individual. My ultimate priority is the health, balance and overall condition of the scalp and hair. My goal as a stylist is to educate my clients and provide them with the knowledge and tools necessary to recreate their desired looks at home. When I am away from my chair I am enjoying my life with my son, husband, family and friends.
