Meet Melanie!

Meet Melanie at Blake & Co.!Our newest stylist, Melanie, is a woman who is passionate about her job and knew she wanted to do it before she ever went to school for it.

Melanie was born in a town in northwest Bavaria, Germany, called Aschaffenburg. She lived there for 18 years. Which conveniently explains her love for German food and chocolate, but then again, who doesn’t love chocolate?

While hair has always been a passion, she also loves gardening and being outdoors. When she’s not outside, though, you might catch her binge-watching The Walking Dead or The Fear of the Walking Dead.

Melanie joins Blake & Co. with 14 years of experience and has completed classes at a number of elite schools. When asked what a highlight of her work life was, she said, “Making my clients happy.” She loves to give haircuts and show her clients her top-notch skills. She also loves her co-workers and can’t wait to show up to do what she loves every day.

When we asked Melanie what her go-to hair-care product was, she said, “Zero Gravity hairspray by Sebastian.” Shaper Zero Gravity by Sebastian is a light-controlled hairspray that is ideal for fine hair but works on all types. It is a brushable hold that won’t leave your hair feeling stiff and is one of Melanie’s preferred products. “It gives hold,” she explained, “but is still pliable.”

Melanie has visited many different locations, but when we asked she couldn’t narrow down her favorite because “there are so many beautiful places.” Her favorite quote is, “Love is everything.” If she had a superpower, it would be to heal. She finds peace in waking up and starting her morning by eating her breakfast and getting ready for the day ahead. She might jam out to old-school rap, hip hop, or classics from the eighties.

We are so excited that Melanie chose Blake & Co. Hair Spa and that she’s now a part of our family. She is genuine and sweet, and if you haven’t met her yet we know you’ll understand perfectly when you do. Stay tuned, because Melanie is bringing great things to Blake & Co.
