Diana Meyers

Root Touchups, Perms, Keeper of the Good Vibes


Diana has kept the charm of the Beach Shack alive for over 30 years and quite frankly the Beach Shack wouldn't be what is today without her.  She is the inspiration for the mantra "Good Vibes, Great Hair".  Friendly, relaxed, and low key.  Diana loves doing root touch-ups, Brazilian Blowouts, and Highlights.  She's also a wizard at regular and spiral perms.
