About Us.

Merakai was a dream of 2 driven woman who are pros in their industries. Owners and Technicians Michelle Tietz & Jessica Mancebo had this crazy idea to collaborate and support each others growing businesses. 

They sought out like minded woman to join their team to create the ultimate one stop beauty experience. 

Merakai on its own is a very unique idea. The name "Merakai" was inspired by "Meraki" a word that modern Greeks often use to describe "doing something with soul, creativity, or love — when you put 'something of yourself' into what you're doing, whatever it may be."

What sets us apart from other studios that have the same idea is that we offer professional services done ONLY by professionals in their industry. This way you know you are getting the quality work you are paying for. Plus if you decided to get multiple services when you visit us you get to meet the whole brains and beauty behind Merakai. 

Meet the babes



"Hey Guys! I'm Michelle, and I am the definition of a brow queen. I have been brow obsessed for as long as I can remember! I am a 4x certified brow artist and will continue to grow my education in this industry. Eyebrows are a form of art and as a artist it is my passion to create unique brows but most importantly give my clients a reason to feel beautiful!

This journey has been nothing short of amazing and I cannot wait to meet the new Merakai Brow Babes, see you soon!"




"Hey Babes, Im Jessica! I am a 5x certified lash artist with 3+ years experience in the industry, formally known as Bella Lash Kitchener. 

I consider myself lucky to have such a fun and creative job! It is very important to me that my clients feel confident and comfortable throughout their service.

I cant wait to meet you!"




"After many years of experiencing varying levels of service in the nail industry I wanted to bring my ability and customer focus to people like me. As I moved from salon to salon looking for the perfect nails, I realized that it was not a better quality of nail that I was missing but a level of service, an experience. I believe that how you feel when you leave the salon is as important as how you look. Your nails and time are an investment, an investment in yourself. My goal is to provide the value, service and quality that your investment deserves. 

I cant wait to meet all of you lovely ladies and bring your nail ideas to life "




"Hi guys! My names Alanah, I have been a medical aesthetician for the past 2+ years and plan to be doing it for so much longer, as well as expanding my knowledge to make sure my client’s appointment is nothing short of amazing. I am so excited to start my journey with Merakai and I’m so honoured to be able to start my dream career. I can’t wait to see all of you and provide you all with a comfortable (for the most part;)) experience!

I look forward to meeting you "
