Metro Mikee's Is More than just a Salon

By Elisha Neubauer

Mikee Bentz always knew he wanted to be in the salon industry, but he never imagined owning his own business would come into play. However, after attending Empire Beauty School in his early 20s, he realized that owning his own salon was the route for him.

It was only two short years after graduating from Empire Beauty School that Bentz was able to bring his new dream to life as he launched Metro Mikee's in Harrisburg, PA.

"I opened my first salon at 25 in a nearby community outside of Harrisburg with a dream of moving to a beautiful downtown location," Bentz said. "I accomplished this goal by January of 2016 and I have been operating the Flagship location with one additional Team Member for almost two years now."

When it came to location, Bentz couldn't have selected a better place. The building in which his salon is located will celebrate its 150th birthday in 2018. The ambiance created by the building's history is historic and inviting. The staff seeks to be extremely attentive to each individual client's needs, offering beverage services and one on one attention from the stylist. The salon also offers a revolving art gallery featuring local artists, so the décor is always changing.

Metro Mikee's is proudly using CHI salon products in their daily operations. Chi, which stands for Cationic Hydration Interlink, is part of the Farouk Systems company located in Texas. The brand strives to provide the professional beauty industry with the most advanced American technology based upon 'Education, Environment and Ethics'. It is no surprise that Bentz finds the product fits his salon well.

"CHI is a company always striving to improve their results and their beliefs and values line up very closely with the team at Metro Mikee's," he said.

Services include hair cuts for women, men, and children, as well as all over color, highlights, demi permanent dies, root retouches, and more. Eyebrow and facial threading is also available.

"The team at Metro Mikee's is always looking for new ways to improve the lives (and hair) of each and every person we come into contact with," Bentz said.
