Hi, I'm Melissa!

Finding a great hairstylist is a task almost as daunting as that of climbing Mount Everest. Ok, maybe it’s not THAT difficult, but it has it’s stressors for sure! First, you have to find someone who is skilled in what they do. You want a stylist who takes pride in their work and stays sharp with ongoing education. Once you have found someone with an acceptable level of talent, you need to make sure they understand how to work with your hair type. You want your stylist to listen to your ideas, hear your concerns, and offer knowledgeable advice. Last, but oh so important, you need to “click” with your new stylist. You’re going to be spending a lot of time for many years together, so some level of rapport is definitely a must.

I would love the opportunity to be your new hair stylist! Take a minute to look through my past work and credentials.  If you like what you see go ahead and book an appointment online or send me a message.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Education

I received my degree in cosmetology from Michiana Beauty College in Granger, IN. I attend a minimum of three on location education events per year, and countless web based training.

Certifications

I hold a Master Colorist certificate from Pravana, a Color Expert certificate from John Paul Mitchell Systems, and a Product Pro certificate from DevaCurl. 

Experience

I have been in the business since 2006, although I gave my first haircut in 1990. I owned a small salon in South Bend, IN before moving to Warsaw in 2014. I am now here rebuilding my clientele.

Commitment

My commitment to you is to bring the highest quality of products and service, listen to your needs, and offer the best options to keep your hair beautiful and healthy.

My Bio

I am a born again Christian, and seek to help women find their true value in Christ. I lead the ladies ministry at Warsaw Baptist Church where my husband is the pastor. We have three teenagers, two dogs, and a cat. I enjoy reading, writing, singing, studying the Bible, teaching and speaking for women’s events. One day I will again have time for my hobby of scrapbooking and card making, but for now I am taking the time to enjoy the last few years I have with my children at home. I am also a distributor for Young Living essential oils. I hold classes in my home and online to educate others on how they can benefit from the everyday use of essential oils.

About My Space

I rent a chair inside Bailey’s Studio in Winona Lake. The Carpet Depot is in the same building, so when you come to see me, you’ll enter through the carpet store entrance.  Then walk all the way through to the other side of the building.  I am in the farthest room tucked in this super cute little corner of the shop.  I hope you will feel relaxed and comfortable in the homey atmosphere of Bailey’s!
