Meghan Harrah ~ From Tikrit to Downtown Lowell, Meghan Harrah is a warrior. Before opening the Eyeful Beauty salon on Middle Street, she was a U.S. Air Force Staff Sergeant, running convoys with Army personnel and training Iraqi police officers in a part of the world where women are still struggling to have their voices heard. In Lowell, Meghan has championed another fight. Since 2011, she has been the force behind F*ck Cancer, a benefit that has raised thousands of dollars for Lowell General Hospital’s Cancer Care Center. She has also become a mentor for young women by running an after-school beauty club for students from Middlesex Academy Charter School. Her message to girls: Be yourself, find your passion and don’t take “no” for an answer.
