Hi my name is Merissa Luetjen. I am so happy I am able to come to a job that I truly love. I have had a motivation for loving hair since I was four years old. It all started because my father had long hair, all I wanted to do every night is try a new style on him! I have come a long ways since! I graduated cosmetology school from Stewart School in 2012 here in Sioux Falls. While attending, I received the Business Student of the Year award. I also have a passion for health and fitness, therefore I choose to use the most natural haircolor and products I can get my hands on. I use a color line called Mares that is mostly organic, free of PPD, ammonia, gluten, and many other harsh chemicals. My hair care line is called Surface, certified organic, full of botanicals, sulfate free, gluten free, paraben free, and vegan. The products are packaged in a way to benefit your health and respect the earth. The packaging is free of PPP/vp plastic, heavy oils DEA and TEA and phthalates. I used to work for Aveda, which I still love and respect. While I worked there I attained a lot of education frequently and have had a class by the famous John Raymond.
