Trish Davis Salon Owner/Director Designer

I am honored, to have your trust for 23 years of making clients smile. My passion in this ever-changing business is to create a look that works for you. I will listen first then offer my insight. I love designing color within the style. My true love also lives in the endless possibilities of formal designs. I specialize in this area for that memorable day, anything from vintage to modern.


Valla Bethel Salon Owner/Director Designer

I love creating a style and color for guests that will make them look and feel that they are as amazing and unique as the truly are. I have been a stylist for 12 years with 10 of those at Salon Dacota, and in this time I have found I truly have a passion for corrective coloring as well as for designing my guests a complete look that will compliment their complexion as well as face shape and lifestyle.


Jesse Wendt Master Designer

I have been a stylist for 14 years. Twelve of those years have been spent at Salon Dacota, where I have perfected my passion for hair color and precision cutting. I was a color educator for a few years, then decided to focus more on developing my makeup skills. I have studied under Tami Scott (one of the lead makeup artist in the bridal industry) for makeup in St. Louis. Tami exposed me to working behind the scenes at fashion shows and photo shoots. I absolutely love doing photo shoots and hope to increase my activity in that industry. I took a year and a half off to move to Seattle and be a stay at home mom. I am very grateful to have had that experience with my little girl. Having that time off has refreshed my passion for doing hair and makeup. While I was in Seattle I studied under Kerry Herta (a Hollywood makeup artist) to expand my makeup education. It was an amazing experience. I am excited to be back in St. Louis, working again and rebuilding my clientele.

Libby Brengle Senior Designer

I received my education from Paul Mitchell the School St Louis. While there, I truly found my passion for hair and making people feel great about themselves. I have been in the industry for 3 1/2 years and have been at Salon Dacota for 3 years. My goal is to listen to what each client wants and needs because at the end of the day I want my clients to love their hair, not just like it. I specialize in braiding and updos, I love creating that special look for your special day.
