About Tryst Salon & Spa


Our Background

From the beginning Tryst was destined to be a step apart. Years of observation and participation in the salon and spa industry motivated Trish Schlacht to give birth to a different kind of company. An independent business, unfettered by the mold of national salon chains, was launched on July 10, 2012 in 

Mentor, Ohio. 


The Dream

Staff - Create an atmosphere that attracts  the top industry talent. From that elite group, handpick those that are naturally friendly and excited about extreme customer care. Nurture and  grow people through continuous training, product education and skill building seminars.

Product - Carefully select and offer only the safest, highest quality professional products. Offer product  information and instruction to customers.

Attract customers by providing the above in a clean, bright, modern facility. 

Keep customers with exceptional service.

Finally, have fun and encourage all around you to have fun!


Why Tryst?


We are confident your experience at Tryst Salon and Spa will leave you feeling beautiful, refreshed and eagerly anticipating your next Tryst.

Please tour our web site and call with any questions. Or, better yet, just book your next appointment online.

Thank you!
