Runs Lemon Salon
Yellow, Sky blue, Lime
Lemon Meringue is one of Strawberry Shortcake's best friends and main characters in the series.
Current with all the latest hair trends, Lemon spends her day busily working styling hair or giving pedicures and manicures. She loves to spend time and chatter with her gal pals, so getting to work on their appearance while she does so is what makes her happiest.
Lemon has fair skin and bright blue eyes. She has long, waist length blonde hair with her bangs mostly brushed to the right. She wears a small amount of hair in sectioned pigtails on each side of her head, held by two green bows. A lemon wedge clip rests on the left side of her head. Her lips appear pale tea-rose.
Lemon wears a yellow blouse with elbow-length sleeves held by white ruffled cuff. At the middle of her chest is a lemon wedge design, while below it is a green and pale blue striped ribbon. On each side of her torso is a lemon wedge design, while her skirt is a sky blue light pleat with lemon design on the right. She also wears pale gold flats with three tiny markings on each toe to resemble a slice of lemon. Her leggings are white and neon yellow.
During season 3 and 4, Lemon could sometimes be found with her hair pulled into two low braided pigtails held with her normal green ribbons. With this, she would wear a gold and white striped tank-top with matching shorts or a pair of pale green pants with a floral print and pale blue cuff. Her shoes would either be pale green flats or yellow sneakers with lemon designs and short white socks with pale blue lining.
Despite her sour name, Lemon is very sweet. She is kind and caring to her friends and is normally very cheery and bubbly. She can be a bit ditzy from time-to-time, but she always means well and she is very determined to do whatever she may set her sights on. She is also feminine, but is always up for some rough fun, such as playing a sport or going on an exploration with the other girls. She is very chatty but she never tries to hurt the feelings of others by spreading rumors.
However, Lemon also has a surprising competitive streak and can become stubborn when frustrated or upset with something. She tends to worry over her place in Berry Bitty City and fears rejection or feelings of uselessness. She is easily embarrassed and cares a great deal for her self-image or appearance; to the point of hiding if she feels she looks silly. She is highly sensitive and can be easily offended - but she also tries to be open-minded to hear others out.
Lemon is very creative and loves to dabble in any sort of brand new, visionary prowess related to fashion or design.
Official Hub Profile

Lemon's talents lay in the creative field. She is an all-around stylist who can cut hair, style it, dye it, etc. She also does facials, manicures, foot soaks, and is always trying to tap into her deeper creative potential in order to try to create something new. Most of the time, this creative process seems to work, but during other times they cause less-than desirable results. She has created brand new shampoo, soaps, lotions, perfume, soaks, and more.
Lemon also seems to have an interest in art, and displays this through her topiary interests, as well as an enjoyment of painting.
