Being a Stylist is all I ever wanted to do. I enrolled at the prestigious Carsten Institute in Tempe right after high school and I have spent all of my adult life completely immersed in this amazing industry. After completing my education in 1999 I worked briefly in the east valley training directly with Carsten Wilms. I longed to return to the west valley and soon after opened Melissa & Co. Salon Inc. I spent 8 years owning and operating Melissa & Co. before transitioning to a private suite. I missed the social aspect of the large salon but enjoyed the privacy of my suite. Fringe Salon was born from the desire to incorporate all the things I have loved about this industry over the last 14 years into one amazing establishment. I love Fringe Salon and I know you will too.

I specialize in Hair Color services, and have advanced training in french cutting techniques that made Carsten Wilms world renowned. I love dry cutting, as well as using a razor to create texture. I have extensive training with Goldwell, and Swartzkoph and I am currently continuing my advanced color training with KENRA. My favorite part of any service is the final blowout; I pride myself on giving every client the perfect round brush blow-dry after each service. To discuss your specific needs I invite you to set up a consultation with me.  My regular schedule includes Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., I am available outside these hours by request. Please feel free utilize my online schedule for your convenience.

I am mom to three amazing children, two boys ages 8 and 11, as well as a 4 year old daughter. I am so lucky to be married to a wonderful man who spends his days teaching and coaching football. We are members of Palm Valley Church and enjoy spending our Sundays volunteering and attending classes and services. When I'm not doing hair I love refinishing antiques, you will actually see many of my finished pieces throughout the salon. My mom and I are extremely close and we sell our furniture and antiques at our local Brass Armadillo Antique Mall. We are crazy about Chalk Paint, and have recently become retailers of CeCe Caldwell's Paints.
