Owner & Stylist
By the age of 20 Melissa Lopez knew she had a knack for style. Working her way up the ranks of local hair studios and building a cult following for clientele seemed to come easy to her. When ambition and demand crossed paths, "Mel" answered by furthering her education for high end hair extensions and opening a salon in her own home. This was a blessing in disguise having a newborn child and juggling her professional career successfully. What sets Melissa apart from the competition is the constant need for furthering education and studying upcoming trends. Her passion for making woman feel confident is what drives her day to day operations. It's always quoted, "if you love what you do, it's not a job!" Melissa is living proof.
