Hello Melanie!

Tell us about your time in the industry-

I have been in the industry for 15 years.  Throughout that time I have been so lucky to have many amazing educational experiences. Some of the ones that stand out the most to me are: Toni & Guy cutting training in Paris, Sassoon ABC and Creative Cutting at the Chicago Sassoon Academy, Sassoon ABC Color Training at Sassoon in Santa Monica, Knowledge Destroys Fear with DJ Muldoon and I also had the opportunity to be a Learning Leader at The Paul Mitchell School Columbus. 

Whats your favorite part of being an educator?

When you decide to become an educator, you become a better professional behind the chair. It transforms your mind!

Whats your passion for this industry?

I have always loved the dynamic of a class full of creative people. I love to help people improve their businesses and their techniques behind the chair.  I adore watching young hairdressers blossom into successful professionals.  I am also a forever student…I constantly look for new classes to take and love to be inspired by talented people.
