About Us

I came from a humble beginning with an entertaining family of eight, in Estes Brook, Minnesota on a small hog farm. I had a dream in second grade to become a beautician (which it was called back then) and to one day own my own salon. I wanted to touch lives through care and compassion and leave people with a newfound confidence in their appearance.

I moved to St. Cloud in July of 1999 and started my education that following November at the Regency Beauty Academy. I then graduated in January of 2001 and started my first job that same month. I began working independently 1½ years later after getting my salon management license. I also married my husband, Adam, in July of 2001 and have continued on our journey of marriage. Marriage has taught me endurance, passion and strength and has given me the opportunity to walk through life with a friend and undying love. We have one daughter who was born March 10th, 2010 – her name is Eden Grace and she is an absolute delight to us and has changed my life in such a wonderful way. Our second, a son, was born January 27th 2012 – his name is Lincoln Emery and he is a joyful and strong energetic little boy.

Wegman Family PhotoIn August of 2006, our dream and vision brought us to a historic church surrounded by the eloquent town and unique shops of Pequot Lakes, Minnesota. We immediately began the renovation of the historic church, where we did 85% of the renovations our self. From that came our Wellness Salon and Spa that we were able to open to clients in January of 2007.
