Brad Morse– Cut and color specialist, Brazilian Blowout certified. He’s Hawaiian at heart, and Florida born, so San Diego was a natural choice to meet his wife and raise his family. When not busy working with his cherished hair clients, Brad enjoys travel and home DIY.
JB Bergeron– Experienced cut and color specialist, celebrating three decades at Meridian Salon. Many treasured guests who see JB for his expert hair services have been with him from the beginning of his career. JB and his partner Ric have a soft spot for long-haired dachshunds and gardening.
Carl Ducket– Cut and color specialist. His creativity is unmatched- even when he’s not expressing himself in hair, he’s always creating. From home decor to fashion he enjoys artistic expression. My favorite story working with Carl is the time he shipped enormous 19th century carved oak Bishop’s thrones directly to the salon by freight carrier.
Sahara & Erin – Salon co-owners. Hi, I’m Sahara, and I write all the words on this website to help you get to know the Meridian Salon team better. I was born and raised in San Diego and I have immersed myself in the beautiful world of salon ownership since 2013. I’ve seen San Diego go through many changes over the decades. Everyday I feel gratitude to lead the creative and experienced team you met above in this dynamic and pleasant city. It’s incredibly rewarding to be a small business owner watching the 21st century Downtown vision take shape. My partner, Erin, and I are so pleased you’ve visited our website and hope you’ll visit us in person soon.
