Leah Ludtke

Owner, Esthetician

Leah Ludtke has been in the skin care/cosmetics industry since 1997. After earning her Esthetician’s License, she knew she wanted her own skin care studio so that she could offer the services, treatments and products she knew were best. She has had the pleasure of living in Bellingham for over 20 years and is thrilled to have her own salon with longtime friends and hair stylist Anna Scheib. Their salon offers full hair and esthetic services.

As a mother of two surrounded by family and friends, Leah realizes that life can get hectic and that we need to make time for ourselves to keep looking and feeling fresh and vibrant.

Anna Scheib

Owner, Stylist

I have been licensed in cosmetology since 1997. At Salon Tryst I specialize in cutting and coloring hair. In 2001, I started Tryst On Site with Leah Ludtke. We go onsite to do hair and makeup for special events and weddings.

We now have our own full esthetic and hair Salon. Natural beauty is what inspires me and I try to infuse an effortless feel in each style.

Ever since I was a little girl, the beauty industry has intrigued me. In 2007, I attended makeup artistry school at Makeup Designory in Burbank California for movie make up and special-effects. After returning to Bellingham in 2009, I expanded my repertoire and attended Bellingham Beauty School for my cosmetology license. My passion for the industry has blessed me with the opportunity to work for RUSK hair care and NARS cosmetics. I am often traveling, sharing my knowledge with other professionals in the industry as well as my clients.

Hair has been a true passion of mine and I truly believe that doing hair is what I was born to do. I love cutting and coloring hair as well as doing special occasion & bridal styling. When not in the salon making people even more beautiful, I am spending time with my wonderful fiance and little dog Rue. I look forward to meeting you soon.

I have been in love with the beauty industry my entire life. In 2007 I decided to turn that love into my career and I’ve never been happier. Since getting my license, not only do I preform custom cuts and colors for my clients, but I also do customized airbrush and traditional makeup for special events, and full body waxing. In 2014 I began working for Rusk hair care as an educator for other salon professionals. I love sharing my knowledge with others and making my clients look and feel their best both in and out of the salon.

In 2012 I made the move to transform my passion into a business and I love every second of it! I have been actively working in the beauty industry as a bridal/portrait airbrush makeup artist since then, and have had the pleasure of working with some of the most incredible clients and fellow creatives. In 2016, I added microblading to the list of services as well as completed training for my aesthetics license. I love to pamper my clients in whatever way I can, and firmly believe everyone deserves a little time for themselves. My goal is to make that happen!
