Melissa was amazing! I was so happy with my hair cut! Every step of the way was a breeze. I have long thin hair and she knew how to cut it in a flattering way and only trimmed off what she needed to. She had so much great advice for hair care as well! I highly recommend!

She’s always so nice and has a calming and chill presence. I always look forward to getting my hair cut by her, I only wish I had more hair so I could come by more often :)
