MEGAN WILLIAMS, MANAGER

My name is Megan Williams. I am a St. Louis native. I have loved all things beauty since I was a little girl. I have been a licensed cosmetologist since 2019. I received top student in my class in Cosmetology school. I am also a licensed barber offering straight razor services. I offer a full range of services behind the chair. I enjoy doing hair and makeup for weddings and special occasions. I am also pleased to say I am the manager at The Bend. My favorite part of being a cosmetologist is seeing people smile after I’ve worked my magic. I love building connections with my guests and making them feel confident. I am constantly upgrading my tools and education. You never stop learning. I keep up to date on cutting and coloring, trends and techniques. I, myself have found I have a passion for teaching. I find it important to teach you how to do your hair at home. From shampooing to styling, I want you to feel confident in recreating your style at home.

Outside of the salon, I enjoy spending time with my two cats. I love watching horror movies. I am passionate about makeup and my collection shows it. I love doing escape rooms on the weekends or spending time with friends and family. I enjoy going to concerts and small business markets in the summer.

CLAIRE TAFT

My name is Claire Taft. I moved to Missouri in 2008 from Utah. I have been a licensed cosmetologist since 2018. My specialties behind the chair include, extensions and hair/makeup for weddings. To be a part of someone’s special day is such a privilege. I find, it’s also a special day for the mother of the bride. Making her feel beautiful and special is also my priority. I love building close relationships with my clients. I cherish the firsts. You are expecting your first child, your baby’s first haircut, your daughter’s first homecoming, and before you know it it’s her wedding.

I offer a wide range of services behind the chair that I am always expanding. Constantly seeking education to keep up to date with new techniques and trends is important to me

Outside of work, I have a fiancé, two kids, and two cats that I enjoy spending time with. Reading and watching movies is my favorite passing time. I also love shopping.
