‘Creatively elevating client image through a concierge approach.'

About Melissa

Hi friends! Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I am a Color Enthusiast, Hair Educator, and I specialize in Extensions and Dimensional Color... often together, but sometimes separately. 😉 I often work on editorial, red carpet events, and bridal. I am also the creator/owner of

Styled x Melissa. 


My career has spanned nearly 15 years in the beauty industry. I've always been told I had an eye for design and fashion and found the beauty industry captivating, but was also intimidated by an industry that seemed out of reach for me. It took me a while, but I finally entered the world of beauty as a celebrity and editorial stylist. Fun fact: I used to ride and train horses! Fate allowed me the opportunity to reside as the Fashion Editor for the luxury magazine CVLUX for a period of time.

With a passion for helping all my clients to feel their very best, I believe in elevating client image creatively and through an in-salon concierge approach. I believe in educating my guests about every service, how to recreate styles, and sharing stylist tips! Be sure to follow me on Instagram @styledxmelissa for inspo + subscribe to my IG subscription page for education.


A California native, I call the Inland Empire home, but I've also had wonderful travel opportunities through my work. When I'm not working behind the chair, on set, or with brides or teaching, you'll find me traveling, hiking, and enjoying my family.

Some fun facts about me:
*I've styled celebrity clients for editorial, press events, red carpets, music videos, film, television, etc... 
*I've been invited as a speaker at several fashion event/panels, and television style expert appearances
*I enjoy a well-mixed old fashion + sipping the perfect peanut butter whiskey!
*I'm a huge animal lover
*My most prized job yet is momma
