RICK AND KRIS CHEEK

 
OUR FOUNDERS

     Lemongrass Salon and Spa is owned by husband and wife team,      Rick and Kris Cheek. Inspired by hair legend Vidal Sassoon, Rick set out to become the next talented leader in the beauty industry. Since 1979, Rick gained thirty-six years of education and experience as a hairstylist. Ready to begin a new chapter, Rick found his true passion in creating and growing industry leading salons by founding Lemongrass in 2007.

 

Part of his vision was to offer beauty and wellness services all while using sustainable and healthy products for the guest, the team, and the environment. Rick and Kris found their ideal concept for a brand partnership aligned with AVEDA's mission perfectly:

Our mission at AVEDA is to care for the world we live in, from the products we make to the ways in which we give back to society. At AVEDA, we strive to set an example for environmental leadership and responsibility, not just in the world of beauty, but around the world.
— Horst M. Rechelbacher

Since the founding of Lemongrass in 2007, the team has built and cultivated 4 successful AVEDA lifestyle locations in North Texas. 

During that time, Lemongrass has become a highly reputable business in the AVEDA network, voted by the community in multiple industry categories as being "The Best of Fort Worth, Texas", and has earned several awards by Salon Today as one of the Top 200 salons in the nation. 

Rick and Kris also envisioned not only an excellent service standard, but an environment suitable to employ and grow careers for individuals who are just as passionate as they, and the rest of the leadership team. The Lemongrass team is committed to quality and guest satisfaction, has traveled globally to train with top industry leaders, provides editorial hair and makeup for multiple magazines and hair shows, including Fashion Week in New York.
