I do not do reviews very often, however; am am so excited to have been referred to Melissa!! She is wonderful!!! On my first visit she listened to me, what I was looking for, and gave me exactly what we discussed!! She also did not try to sell me products but when I was asking questions as to what was good for my hair she recommended a product and I could both see and feel the difference after the first use. I am grateful to have found her and have found a friend and a fabulous professional!!! Thank you Melissa!!!

I am thrilled with my cut and color! I originally scheduled online and before even meeting for the first time, Melissa contacted Me to get a before picture and a goal picture. I’ve never had a stylist so prepared for me. The set up made me feel very comfortable due to the individual rooms. I’ll be back!

Melissa is one of the FEW stylists I've encountered who can really pull off an edgy pixie cut. She is creative and talented and I feel so comfortable when I sit in her chair. In addition to being a fantastic stylist, Melissa is also a fun, kind person who cares about her clients. Go see her!
Stephanie S.
Melissa is amazing! My husband, daughter and I all go to her. Not only is she an extraordinary positive and warm person she is a true artist and loves what she does. It shows, she always listens and truly cares about how you feel when you leave. I’ve always felt amazing after my appointment with her and I’ve gone through many phases with her with growing my hair out from loosing it from chemo. I can’t say enough good things about Melissa!

Melissa had done my hair for many years while I was living in Illinois and Tennessee. She is so good I would drive from Tennessee too Illinois just so I would have the best do my hair. She knows how to cut and color the best I have ever seen. If I lived in Florida I would Definitely go too Melissa.

With Melissa, I have gone from dark brown, to silver, to ice platinum, to dark red, and back to platinum. No matter what the color, cut, or style of my hair has been, she is the sole reason that my hair is still HEALTHY and beautiful. Her honest and relaxed demeanor make for an incredible spa experience. The quality treatment I receive every time I see her is worth its weight in gold. I can’t imagine going to anyone else and getting the same level of care.

I was beyond blessed to have met Melissa at the very start of her venture into hair cutting and styling - she was the only person I trusted with my hair for 10 years. It was an honor to watch Melissa grow and progress with her incredible talent. I loved sitting in the chair and trusting her my usual cut & style. Melissa’s more than a stylist, she becomes a true friend.

Melissa cut my hair for many years in Illinois. She was the first stylist I went to after a horrid cut in my teen years that left me afraid to cut my hair for 10 years. She instantly put me at ease, and smiled through all my drilling questions about her abilities as a stylist. I eventually started showing up for my hair appointments with her saying, "Do what you want to my hair!" And she did! It was always phenomenal

Melissa is amazing! She’s been doing my hair for about a year and a half now. Living in Florida with curly hair, it’s not easy finding someone who can keep it under control. When I first saw her, my hair was over processed, frizzy, and limp. With her care, I now have my bouncy curls back. She knows what is best for your hair. You won’t be disappointed!

I've been going to Melissa for probably almost 3 years now. When we first met I was in a bit of a wild faze with my hair. So I asked Melissa if she could put lines on the side of my head. Her eyes got huge and her face lit up and she said "ABSOLUTELY"! She then asked if I would like a design that would wrap around the back of my head. I told her to go for it. From that day forward Melissa was my goto stylist. So not only is she incredible with cuts and color, she is the best at coming up with and executing the wildest, most precise, unique designs. Melissa has not only become my artist of the hair, Melissa has become my friend. Dennis R.

I first met Melissa in Naperville Illinois in 2003, she did such an amazing job, that quite honestly I'm willing to travel great distances to see her! Even driving all the way from Little Rock Arkansas to Illinois, yes she's that good folks! My cut and color is always perfect, I've been mostly grey since my 18th birthday, luck of the Irish. Melissa blends my natural color with highlights and the look is amazing. Now that we moved to Florida, yes Melissa being here did help us decide. I travel a little over 3 hours to see her on way, beats 16! Well worth it everytime. You can't go wrong with my dear friend, she is the real deal and I don't care how far away she is, I'm going!
