Meet Leissa

"Leissa became inspired by art at an early age and that guided her to start cosmetology school; but, how did she come to Menomonie? In 1985 Leissa's sister attended the University of Wisconsin-Stout in Apparel Design and Development and Retail Merchandising. They weren't far apart in age so on the weekends, they would have fun at all the "downtown discos"; then bar close would come around and Leissa said, 'I seemed to be doing some of my most creative cuts on UW- Stout students, brave enough to change their hairstyle's after a night on the town, we really had a blast.'
"After getting a job offer in Chicago, Leissa just couldn't leave Menomonie and decided to stay and open her very own, hair studio and day spa.
"Leissa's salon started out with only two people and in the past 29 years it now has 7 stylists, 2 massage therapists, and 4 front desk concierge, pedicurist on staff, as well as other specialists."
