  • "In terms of Melissa’s work on the big day, both the bridal party and I loved our hair! Everyone looked lovely and everyone’s hair lasted the entire day until the reception ended! I am truly grateful for her work and would not only love to hire her again for any future big events but would also certainly recommend her to anyone looking for professional hair artists. She was a pleasure to work with."
