Iles Formula Hair Talk with Patrick Meredith at Ryan M Salon

Iles Formula Hair Talk welcomes Patrick Meredith at Ryan M Salon, based in Scottsdale, Arizona.

With more than 25 years of experience in the salon industry, Patrick brings a wealth of knowledge and refined skill set to his clients. After living in the Midwest, where he owned a salon and worked as a grooming stylist for over 20 years, Patrick decided to move to where the sun always shines, Scottsdale AZ. 3 years after his move, he says, ‘I couldn’t have made a better decision. Working at Ryan M Scottsdale is a dream and being introduced to Iles Formula has been a game-changer for all my hair colors, especially my platinum guests.’
