Ree Merrill ~ Booker

Ree says she feels like she was born at Wonderland, where she greets everyone with Southern hospitality. Prior to Wonderland, Ree was the proprietor of the Blue Velvet salon, in Birmingham, Alabama, which was recently named one of the nation’s best by Elle magazine. Her beauty icons are Betty Page, Tallulah Bankhead, “every one of the Vargas pin-up girls, and of course Madonna, but who doesn’t include her?” An actress, writer of screenplays and the play A Broken Barbie, Ree is a self-described “artist of life.”
