Meli, an LA native, knew from an early age it was her calling to be a hairstylist when she was removing perm rods on client’s hair at her mom’s beauty salon.
Her free spirit and love for entrepreneurship led her down many paths picking up different trades along the way before settling in to her destiny as a Hairstylist.
Connecting to her client and learning their wants, needs and lifestyle is extremely important to Meli. The consultation helps her create a style for her client that will have them leave the salon happy and satisfied. Using a dry cut technique allows her to not overcut as well as to shape the hair according to it’s natural movement and growth direction. With every cut or color, she aims to highlight each individual client’s natural facial structure, playing up his or her individual style creating effortless, chic, wearable hair.
Working both in salon as well as on set on music videos, editorial shoots and ad campaigns allows her always to stay fresh and on top of her game.
A true artist, Meli loves to see out her vision from the beginning to the end.
She specializes in:
– Women’s Long Hair Dressing
– Men’s Grooming
– Short Textured haircuts
– Sun Kissed Blondes, Rich Brunettes, and Playful Pastels
– Brazilian Blowouts
– Editorial Styling
– Make Up
Keeping the hair healthy, interpersonal connection, and her clients leaving her chair feeling good and looking good is what’s important at the end of the day.

“I love all hair lengths and styles. If I had to choose a favorite, I would choose textured/curly hair and short lengths, including men’s cuts! My approach is: less is more. I don’t use a lot of products or tools to get the job done if I don’t have to. I keep it simple so my clients can replicate what I do in the salon at home! What inspires me as a hairdresser is the transformation that I am able to give to clients. I love transforming not only their physical self, but their internal self as well. I love being able to facilitate someone’s desire to make a change or help them see something they haven’t.”
