Originally from Chicago, Illinois, Meredith perhaps took her knack and love for styling from her mother, who was a stylist herself. Coming from a large family, Meredith claims styling hair is what she was born to do. It was not like that from the start, however, as she initially attended fashion design school briefly before finally moving to a cosmetology school just outside Cleveland. She apparently learned a lot from that experience as she says she still uses her fashion education to focus on what she believes is the focal point of style: hair. She went on to train at prestigious salons, including Vidal Sassoon, Aveda, and Tony and Guy.
All work paid off for Meredith, as she now works as a top-ranked educator at the Aveda Corporation, while working at a salon called Salon V in Chicago. She has also participated for the Chicago Fashion Week.
Meredith is one of the contestants in Bravo TV’s Shear Genius. This second season of the reality show features 12 gifted hairstylists from all over the country who vie for the ultimate title of ”Shear Genius.” It also looks at what happens behind the scenes of competitive high-end hair styling.
