SUSAN NASH                           Owner/Stylist

Being a stylist is in my DNA.  My Mother has been in the industry for 47 years and counting.  I loved growing up with a role model who let me experiment freely.  It definitely peeked my interest at a very young age.  I've been a Duluthian for most of my life and spent a couple of years living in Minneapolis.  I love spending time with my family and 3 dogs in the great outdoors.  We have a giant organic garden, a green house, fruit trees and many perennials that keep us happy and busy at home.  Gardening, refinishing furniture, searching for antiques, yoga, reading and anything involving health and wellness are all great hobbies of mine.  Although, my true passion is being a Stylist.

My approach and philosophy to hair care is very simple.  Find out what the hair needs, and deliver it.  I've been a Cosmetologist since 2006.  I enjoy taking time getting to know your needs as a client as well as what your actual hair is telling me.  Everyone's hair type is very unique and different.  I am committed to finding out what is best for your hair whether that is more protein, moisture or both.  My coloring process is the same, I am a Certified Organic Colorist and I must prepare the hair to ensure optimal results.  I ask a lot of questions to be certain we are taking the right approach with your color and style.  My main focus is to make you feel comfortable about what we are doing and to educate you along the way.  I look forward to servicing you in the future!                                       



MCKENZIE MCCULLOUGH            Stylist

I took a chance pursuing Cosmetology, little did I know, I'd be so passionate about it.  I've spent my entire hairstylist career in the Duluth area, beginning in 2006.  I grew up in the small town of Esko and couldn't bring myself to leave the area because of all the great things Duluth has to offer.  I love everything outdoors.  Camping, fishing, running, outdoor concerts or just give me some sunshine and a craft beer and I'll be set!  I love good humor and great stories.  In my spare time I enjoy hanging out with my Husband and our two dogs.  We especially enjoy fishing together year-round.  

After a few years of developing my skills, I worked my way into becoming a District Manager.  This is an example of my personality, I'm always feeling driven to excel and perform my very best in all that I do.  Following my experience with the corporate hair industry, I found myself wanting to venture out and become an independent stylist.  Though I loved the challenges management brought, my heart was telling me that behind the chair is where I need to be; styling and building friendships with people like you.  I want to be your go-to person for all of your hair questions.  I will use our consultation time with each other openly and honestly.  I promise I will be real with you.  My main focus is to understand exactly what you want, but to also know what your hair needs, and relay to you what options exist in order to make you happy and leaving 100% satisfied.  I want to ensure that satisfaction lasts until our next visit with each other.  I know the importance behind leaving the salon chair feeling fabulous and confident in your new (or maybe just touched-up) look.  Bottom line, I love to make my clients feel their very best and I truly believe you will enjoy the atmosphere I create here at Verde Salon.  

I love all aspects of being a stylist; colors, cuts, waxing and formal styling, you name it!  My specialties include cutting edge color techniques, Balayage, hand painted highlights, and foiling.  I like the natural look, but I am not afraid to "color outside the lines."  I also specialize in hair cutting.  I love being creative with short hair, men's cuts, and layered hair.  I am eager to meet you, and can't wait to share my talents with you!
