Student Review

“What a pleasure it was to be part of Melissa’s workshop. Not only has she got an abundant knowledge of all things hair, but she has an energetic passion that makes you fall in love with hair all over again. I have been to workshops before that have left me feeling unclear, underwhelmed and uneducated. Melissa’s class hold a warm and encouraging atmosphere, where you feel safe to explore your creativity. She is hands on and supports you through the entire class. I highly recommend her classes for beginners just starting out to even experienced hair stylists that want to refine their current skills. You’re awesome!”
