Melissa has been honing in her haircutting skills for 20+ years. Continued education, a passion for learning and growing is a big part of her personality. With a strong background from Toni & Guy, where she began her career, Melissa built a foundation in the technical aspects of cutting, sometimes referred to as "precision cutting", with a balance in visual finishing. Melissa spent many years as an educator on the TiGi artistic team in the Phoenix, Arizona area, doing cutting demos (look and learns) in established salons to show hairdressers the latest trends and cutting techniques.
After leaving the TiGi artistic team, Melissa moved back to her hometown, Portland Oregon and began working at Bumble and Bumble support salons.
Now at Gamine with Color Specialist, Liberty Brough, the two team up as a cut and color dream team. Melissa is back to honing in on her specialty, haircutting, taking advanced education from various educators.
