Melissa, is a two time North West Hairdresser of the Year finalist, and has always had a passion for hair. Family photos show her cutting her dolls’ hair, aged four, before graduating on to her two sisters!
Melissa opened her salon at aged just 24, with the vision to design beautiful hair to the highest possible standards in a calm, relaxing environment. Since then the salon has won numerous awards, including Best UK Salon (twice), Best Client Service and Best Independent Salon. Melissa and the team have also won several creative awards for both cut and colour work.
She trained in precision cutting with Sassoon, gaining Distinctions in both her Classic and Creative tests – a rare feat in what is recognised as the world’s most challenging cutting programme. Then she funded herself through the Wella Master Colour Expert programme, achieving top marks in her exams.
Melissa is now a judge of national and international hairdressing competitions, and has appeared on several national TV and radio programmes.
She continues to love creating beautiful hair!
