Tracey Baker

Hi !! I'm the manager of the Spring Hill location. My relationship with the salon began as a guest, but I now enjoy being behind the desk and working with this great team of wonderfully talented girls. I met Ryann the owner when she was getting ready to graduate from the Paul Mitchel hair school. It was a chance meeting that led to her being my stylist for more than 10 years. I was born and raised in England, I have two children and I met my husband while he was serving in the U.S. Air force stationed in the U.K We spent most of his career in Germany and England. I loved every minute of it. Although we have chosen Spring Hill as home, my ties to the place where I was born are still very strong and I go home to visit as much as I can. I have worked in the customer service industry for a long time and I enjoy my position here at the Salon. I love being able to take care of our guests and providing the best possible service that I can.
