Melissa’s Hair Experience:
Melissa Walker is a Master Stylist of 23 years. What defines a Master Stylist? Don’t be fooled! The term Master Stylist has become overused term and often lacks meaning to the customer. A true Master Stylist has gone through an apprenticeship at the beginning of their career, has done platform work in the industry, has taught some form of hairdressing techniques to other designers, and spends $1,000+/year to remain educated in their fields of expertise. Master Stylists travel around the globe to obtain their education and employ the finest cutting shears in the industry, costing up to $7,000 per shear. The special design and length of each shear makes it suitable to cut in different fashions; for example, dry cutting without fraying the hair. In addition, Master Stylists change the razor for each and every cut, as we know you’re worth the money it costs to do this.
There are countless reasons a Master Stylist is worth their bread and butter — the client should feel elevated, understood, listened to and, most importantly, leave feeling great! Melissa strives to deliver effortless style that work with her customer’s unique lifestyle and important life events. She believes that a hairdresser is not doing their job if their customers are not dinner talk! Melissa says this with a smile remembering a client of 20 years who stated, “Well, Tom met his brother’s new wife. She is also a stylist. I asked him how it went and he said ‘She is no Melissa!'”
Melissa loves her clients and works hard to retain them. She believes that service is of the utmost importance in a world that is hectic, and as such, relationships are extremely important to Melissa.
