    I’ve had my hair styled by Mel for all my special occasions & every single time she’s very professional, accommodating, & understands what I ask for & brings my vision to reality! Could not recommend her enough! 10/10!

    Melissa was so sweet, everything was so easy with her! Booking the trial was super easy, she replicated the style almost identically, I just didn’t have my extensions in for the trial!! She listened to everything I wanted and gave me some feedback, then came up with the perfect style for me. She had the perfect accessories and flowers to add to my hair, and my girls hair! I cannot recommend her enough!!

    Melissa is my partner, but was also my hair stylist for my wedding. She exceeded my expectations just as I knew she would. My hair lasted all night and even into the morning. She is personable, friendly and has such a beautiful energy.

    Mel did my hair for my big day and it was PERFECT! I got so many compliments both during the wedding and after I uploaded pics online. My curls held up so well throughout the entire night! Let’s just say that my hair was the least of my worries that day because Mel had it covered!
