Our Story

Leidan Mitchell Mission Statement: -A creative collective dedicated to exceptional service, inspired by fashion, and empowered by endless education. All for the Love of Beauty. –

If you can’t already tell- WE LOVE BEAUTY. And while we appreciate all that it is and what it can do for an individual, we acknowledge there’s more to a person than, “meets the eye,” and that true beauty begins within. It is with our passion for beauty, and compassion for people, that we operate our business, and really, where the Leidan Mitchell story begins….

Leidan Mitchell Salon and Spa opened its first location June 2001 in the Arcadia neighborhood. Prior to its inception, co- founders Erin Essert and Jacki Tatman, were familiar with one another, respected in the salon industry. As fate would have it, the pair crossed paths at a luncheon in early 2000, spent some time catching up and within a few short months decided to open a salon together. They sincerely hoped to create an environment for passionate people to flourish, and in turn, infuse the community they love so much with beautiful citizens from the inside out.


Leidan Mitchell has since flourished to three Valley locations, including the largest in Chandler and the smaller “micro” concept, Model Citizen. Re-branded as a hair and makeup concept salon, Model Citizen does not offer spa services. Located in the heart of Central Phoenix and connected to Central Wine, Model Citizen is the perfect salon to pop-in, get ready and go out!

Erin and Jacki derive value from the direct relationship between client satisfaction and the success of their staff. It is their aim to offer exceptional service in each community they inhabit while providing business platforms for their teams. Erin and Jacki are proud to have fostered more than 150 independent businesses within their own, and plan to continue to add to this number in the years to come.


At any Leidan Mitchell salon, your appointments can be scheduled directly with your stylist or technician. If you are new to our salons, we will be happy to make a recommendation based on your needs. Simply call the front desk at any location and the receptionist will gladly assist you.

Our Technicians direct numbers are all listed on this website under Team. Most appointments can be made via text or phone call.

Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your appointment. If you are running late, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you. Arriving late will likely limit the time allocated for your service; it will lessen the effectiveness and most importantly your pleasure and enjoyment.

Cancellations of all spa services require a 24-hour notice. Thank you for your consideration and understanding.

Gratuities are not included in the price of services and are greatly appreciated.
