Melissa recently relocated to Atlanta from Telluride, Colorado. She grew up in eastern Pennsylvania and had a fascination with hair and makeup at an early age, constantly experimenting on her dolls or her younger sister. After college she proceeded to follow her passion and enroll in cosmetology school at Metro Beauty Academy in 2007. Since then she has worked at top salons in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Colorado.
Three years ago, Melissa was offered the opportunity to move to Telluride, Colorado in order to develop and launch a salon at The Madeline Hotel and Residences. Six months into her Telluride adventure, she met her future husband, an Atlanta native. They married in Dahlonega, Georgia in November of 2016 and following a honeymoon in Thailand, moved to Grant Park in December 2016. Once settled in Atlanta, Melissa sought out Alex, having met him in 2012 at a Wella show in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Melissa specializes in Men’s cuts, highlights, and color correction.
Melissa is also DevaCurl certified and has done Reese Witherspoon’s hair for her Wild premiere and Bobbi Brown’s hair.
