Melissa has been working her magic in the hair industry for 18 years now! After adopting the hobby of fixing her friends terrible at-home colour jobs, Melissa decided to attend Marvel Beauty College in Saskatoon. She was quickly intrigued by the constant change & artistry in our industry!
Melissa started her career in 2005 in Saskatoon. She’s had always had a passion for event and wedding styling, focusing on vintage looks early in her career. She relocated to Jasper Alberta where she was able to immerse herself in weddings, being such a beautiful destination for tying the knot. She then went on to work with a group of female entrepreneurs, and fell in love with vivid hair coloring techniques. After returning back to Saskatoon, she networked with many local artists while working on photoshoots and fashion shows for local events. Melissa has even had her editorial work published in magazines across North America! She has Master color education with Schwarzkopf professional, and has extensive training with Davines and Kevin Murphy.
Melissa’s hair philosophy is that every person that sits in your chair has the right to create their own beauty standards. Melissa considers herself privileged to have the opportunity to make them feel welcomed in her chair, and allowing them to trust that she can help them create their vision.
Melissa adores working on blended blondes & pastels. She also loves bright reds, vivid colours, and precision cutting (Bobs & Lobs). However, there is nothing that Melissa enjoys more than working on editorial & event styling! There is nothing quite like helping people feel their best for a big moment in their life!
Melissa’s favourite product is the OI spray milk! It’s weightless and makes your hair feel beautifully soft.
Melissa ultimately loves to create! Anything from refurbishment of furniture to jewelry making to hair! You can often find her moving around her living room furniture late on a Saturday night. She also loves being outside near or on water on a beautiful day.
Melissa is a Cancer. She’s strong willed but equally sensitive. She has a soft heart and want everyone to feel welcomed and happy.
