Trained by industry standards such as Paul Mitchell, Vidal Sassoon and Aquage I launched my career as a stylist over 15 years ago. My combined knowledge in colour, cut and experience, paired with an artistic background I’ll provide a bespoke end-product that feels sculpted and custom tailored to my client ♥

*Please note if you’re a new client & would like to book for colour I will require a consultation prior to service. This appointment will be independent of the colour service and is extremely important*

**** please note there is a 24 hr cancelation for appointments. If you’re a no-show you will be charged for missed service if another service is booked. My time is just as valuable as the next****



You can find me at Salon Lofts Westlake near Crocker Park, 15 minutes west of Downtown Cleveland!!

Melissa has been my Stylist “Extraordinaire” since 2012. Talented, effervescent, and on-trend in her industry. There is no one else I trust to make me look and feel fresh and fabulous. Love, love, love her! Marissa M.

Just visited Melissa yesterday. I had a wonderful experience. Her workspace is inviting, clean, and safe. She's been styling my hair for years now and I have always loved her work. Yesterday was no different. She's a great stylist!

Melissa is a gem; professional, artistic, bold, and inspiring. I've been seeing her since 2008... yes.. that's 13 years!!!! Our lengthy relationship is a testament to her talent- she always keeps me fresh no matter whether I am rocking a platinum pixie or have long, dark brunette locks courtesy of her creativity and passion for making me look my best.

Melissa is the best! My hair tends toward the unmanageable, so I was nervous about finding a new stylist when I relocated from NYC. I was so lucky to find Melissa. She’s knowledgeable, talented and the best colorist I’ve ever been to. My hair has never looked healthier. Friends and family noticed the change and strangers have stopped to ask where I get my hair done. I can’t recommend her highly enough.

I always leave an appointment with Melissa feeling good. Primarily because she makes me look fly, but also because she’s a bundle of suave positivity who loves life and infects you with her vivaciousness. Couldn’t recommend her more!

Melissa is the only person I will let touch my hair. I’ve been a client for almost 10 years. She really is the best. Melissa highlights my extremely long, blonde hair and miraculously colors my hair to appear as though I am a natural blonde ! She cuts a phenomenal shag and tames my curly, thick and unruly mane. Melissa is a true artist and a master of her trade. As someone who has studied and taught in this industry, I really can say she is talented, highly trained and her passion for hair is inspiring.

I went to Melissa for the first time this week and she was excellent! I have naturally curly hair and had been doing Devacurl cuts for years and wanted a change! She did a great job consulting with me to find the perfect shape for my hair texture. Her knowledge of different techniques was awesome. I was so happy with the results! She was amazing!

I've been going to Mel since 2006 and can't think about anyone else cutting my hair. I live on the east-side and was concerned about the new drive to Westlake. The drive is surprisingly easy and she's right off the freeway. The new space is fresh, clean and mirror's Mel's personality.
