Melissa has always been fascinated by color and design. Growing up she used all her friends heads as her cutting and color pallet.

After high school she followed her passion for elements of color and design by studying fashion at FIDM in Los Angeles.

In the end, she returned to her “roots” and became a cosmetologist.

It’s really the people, her clients, who make her job fulfilling. “We develop such wonderful, close relationships with our clients. It’s truly a privilege to be able to make their day a little better.”
