Stylist Spotlight


 Meet Melanie, our featured Stylist of the month at Bella Hair Salon💜 visit our website or call to reserve your time with Melanie!



What inspires you ? Fashion & art has always been an inspiration to me. Growing up I loved the art of writing and using colors to provide a sort of escape to let my imagination run wild.  I would marvel at high fashion on the runway as well.  I loved seeing how individuals even on busy streets pulled their own unique looks together. Travel has also been a huge inspiration & the energy of different cities & countrysides is intoxicatingly.   Last, but certainly not least, my family... they always inspire me to just be myself & to follow my heart.  


What do you love most about being a hairdresser? There's so much to love but what jumps out most to me is being able to empower others.  Perhaps we can take it too lightly the effect we have with how clients feel once they leave our chair.  We don't always know the struggles someone is facing & being able to lift their spirits up because they like what they see in themselves, is so powerful to me.  I want my clients to be unapologetically who they are.  There is strength in that. Confidence is a beautiful, contagious thing & to have a part in empowering others to feel good about themselves is extraordinary.  


What Are Some of your Favorite techniques /specialties ? Creating natural, seemingly effortless, beautiful color is hands down my favorite.  I am a lover of hand painting (famously known as balayage).  It takes time to build on your masterpiece & I find the journey of achieving this very rewarding. Customizing color is my way of removing boundaries because I've learned it's not a one size fits all approach--think of it like a tailored dress or coat that was created on every curve of you!  Not only do I love hair color, I cannot forget my first love of makeup artistry--  I'm game for a natural or full glam session any day! I enjoy upstyling/updos as well! I tend to gravitate toward styles that balance softness & structure as well as intricate detail.
