Our Story

We have deep roots in the Beauty and Hair Salon Business Industry. Mike & Carolyn Ponder and Guy & Carol Wadas have known Jeff and Lisa Mertes for over 14 years. The Mertes’ have owned and operated the hair salon business, Living Well Hair Studio in Antioch, IL since 1990.

For years Lisa and her gifted team of beauty and hair salon business service providers have poured their heart and soul into providing their customers with the very best beauty and hair salon services and products possible while Jeff, a numbers cruncher and financial watchdog, has handled the salon business side of things; always with a keen eye for saving money whenever possible.

One area of expense that has always intrigued Jeff is related to credit card processing. Jeff and Lisa’s dear friends – Guy & Carol Wadas and Mike & Carolyn Ponder – helped to build Salon Business Solutions for Integrity Payment Systems that help solve the beauty and hair salon business problems Jeff and Lisa experienced with existing solutions. They found that their business issues were shared with all spa and salon businesses, so they started reaching out to the entire salon industry with their new solutions.
