Melinda was the stylist for my wedding this past August. My photographer referred Melinda, and I knew I loved her style from looking at her website. This was further confirmed at my hair trial, when she effortlessly created numerous beautiful hairstyles (many including braids)! She genuinely loves being creative with hair, and it was so fun to chat with her during the trial- she was so friendly and cool. My mom came along and commented on how talented and nice she was. Melinda even went the extra mile when I emailed her a month before the wedding asking for hair color recommendations after having a botched color experience. She quickly connected me with her colleague Megan at HC Studio, who was also really nice and did a wonderful job fixing my color.Sent on 09/06/2017
On my wedding day, Melinda was punctual and did hairstyles for me, 3 bridesmaids, my mother, and my mother-in-law. She was very efficient, though took great care on each person's hair. I loved my hairstyle that day, and she attached a flower crown to the style. I expected my head to hurt since I often have pain if I have too many pins or a headband on, but my hair felt light and comfortable all day!
I loved Melinda's work and personality, and would highly recommend her to anyone.

Melinda styled my hair for my wedding and it was perfect. She is THE person to go to if you are looking for a braided updo that looks romantic and ethereal.Sent on 10/12/2016
