Melissa specializes in making positive transformations by performing subtle yet amazing enhancements.
"Satori's top-notch team, location, style, and reputation are such a great fit for me and my growing business. I'm thrilled to call Satori my home and delighted to have my guests experience a salon that matches the level of quality I put in every cut & color."
Originally from California, Melissa has over 20 years of styling experience. She initially studied at Ogle school and shortly thereafter advanced her training at Toni & Guy Academy. It was there that she found her calling as an educator; she spent 6 years with Tigi, helping stylists hone their skills, and she recounts many of her best memories as a stylist from her time as a teacher.
She then spent 9 years partnering with one of the most sought after salons in Austin, TX, specializing in dimensional color & textured cuts.
With a passion for beautiful hair and beautiful cities, Melissa moved to Kailua & joined the Satori team in 2020.
"Hair can reveal a lot about a person, and everyone deserves a fabulous haircut, style, and color that makes them feel confident."
When not in the salon you can find Melissa studying the healing arts in the jungles of Costa Rica. With a passion for beautiful hair and a blend of urbanism meets nature, Melissa was beckoned to Oahu to serve. She dedicates her life work to culminate in creating a revolutionary experience helping others look and feel their best.
