Finding a hair stylist after moving to Ohio was high on my list. I am so glad I found Melanie! She does a great job with my thick, coarse hair! Easy to book appointments online and a pleasure to talk with while you're there.

I am in love with the hair cut Melanie gave me. She did an amazing job. On top of her amazing skills she has a great personality that made my time in her loft very enjoyable. I do not live in Columbus but, I will for sure see her again when I am in town again!

I absolutely love Melanie! We have been friends for 9 years and she has done a marvelous job on my hair over the years. No matter what you need done to your hair she has you covered. I personally have thick course hair and she is the only person that can cut, style, and color it any way I desire. I definitely recommend her! :)

Best haircut I have had in a long time! Melanie worked through my challenging crowns and gave me a great cut. The real test for me has always been what the next morning looks like,.and it all worked out perfect. Thanks Melanie, see you in a few weeks

Melanie is absolutely wonderful! Her bright bubbly personality makes every appointment a pleasure. And her talent to deliver what each client is asking for speaks for itself. I am an extremely picky client that Melanie so graciously accommodates. My husband and I lived in Columbus for 3 years then my job moved us to the Dayton area. So it should speak volumes that I still drive and hour and 22 minutes one way, to see Melanie. Wouldnt trust anyone else with my hair! You should totally go see her. You will regret not having gone sooner! She is hands down the best! -London Stewart

Melanie is amazing! I had anxiety from previous hair fails and she eased them right away. She talked to me about what I wanted for my hair and how I could get there. She is sweet and makes you feel comfortable. I will keep going to Melanie for my hair!! She gets 5 stars from me. I left feeling beautiful and confident!!

My daughter and I have been going to Mel for 2 years. We both have blonde hair and we love the way she does our color and highlights!! She also does my waxing while I wait for my color. It's very convenient. She is so talented and such a great person. I highly recommend her. Kara and Ellie Rudolph

About a year ago my hair began breaking off and thinning horribly. It was embarrassing (especially at the gym), but I seriously hated the idea of going to a wig. Melanie has transformed my fine, thinning tresses into a lush hear of hair! She worked absolute magic with human hair extensions. I can wash 'em, apply heat, and they blend beautifully with my own hair. My hair looks better than it's ever looked -- in my life. If I ever have a problem.....no problem. Melanie fixes it quickly, at my convenience. She is a consummate professional with a wealth of knowledge about all things hair. If you have thin, fine hair, don't even think about wigs! Get yourself in to Melanie. Caroline Hall, Westerville, OH

Melanie has been cutting my hair for years and no matter what style I ask for she does it right! She is extremely personable and enthusiastic as well. It is always refreshing, as a guy, to be able to get a great haircut and have an enjoyable visit with a genuinely great person.

I have only been to Melanie once but I will definitely be back! I don’t know if I’ve ever had a better haircut in my life. She’s a sweetheart and actually listens to you. 10/10 recommend
