Melissa is a Florida native. She lived in the Lakeland & Orlando area prior to moving to Tampa.


Melissa attended cosmetology school at Florida Beauty Academy in Orlando where she was trained with Paul Mitchell color. She graduated in 2004 & has enjoyed the numerous hair classes & shows she continues to attend in order to keep up with the latest techniques & trends.

She is a HUGE believer in continuing education and feels there is ALWAYS something new to learn in the ever changing beauty industry.


Melissa is a very good listener and loves to sit with her clients and learn about their lives. Her clients are very important to her & she likes to establish a relationship with them. She also loves to make them look & feel their best.

Her goal is to make her clients appointment times with her something they look forward to every visit.

She also feels that consultation is such an important part of what she does as a hair stylist. Being a good listener and understanding what a client wants is one of the most important parts of her job.

Melissa specializes in color, highlighting and cutting techniques. She is great with women, men & children and is great at razor cuts. She also enjoys doing updos and styles for homecoming, prom and wedding parties.

She is certified in the KERATIN COMPLEX SMOOTHING THERAPY and the BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT treatments which eliminate up to 95% of frizz and curl and instantly adds amazing shine, silkiness and condition to the hair.
