Welcome to my profile,

I'm Melissa Silva, born and raised in Falls church Virginia. I started in the hair industry over 25 years ago when I was just 15 years old, receiving my Cosmetology license when I was still a senior in high school. Over the years I've had the opportunity to meet some very talented people in the industry such as Geno Stampora, Derrick Rutledge, Aleksandar Blagojevic, Nick Arrojo and more who have inspired me to be the hairstylist I am today.


I believe that continued education is key to not only my professional growth and success, but also provides me with the skills to truly communicate with my clients and understand their needs in order to achieve beautiful color, cuts and styles that suite their lifestyles. I'm a classically trained stylist with a savvy eye for trends and pride myself in creating a cohesive, flowing blend of both polished and edgy styles for my clients of all ages, cultures and ethnicity. 


I studied at the Wella academy in New York to receive my Master Color Expert Certification known as their top certification as a Wella MCE. This is a title that is only awarded to 35 hair stylists annually throughout the USA.  I have also been certified in multiple training courses in Creative Color, Foil Craft, Color Correction, Hair cutting, Babe Hair extensions, Keratin treatments and more.

Outside of work I like to spend time with my family, friends and my precious little furry baby, Gypsy. When I'm not with them, I stay busy with my other passion which is crafting! I make handcrafted jewelry and knits under the logo"Melissa Lynn Designs". My creations are available for sale in my loft and you can also check out my Facebook page to place custom orders.
