The pursuit for a career as a makeup artist and hair stylist has been a long time ambition for Melissa. Being inspired by fashion, colour, originality and a love of all things "bling" Melissa's passion is creating beautiful makeup and hair, which is inspired by studying trends published in the fashion, beauty, film and music media.


Since 2001 when Melissa completed her Diploma in Beauty Therapy in Brisbane she has been working, living, breathing and developing her craft as a makeup artist and hair stylist. Having this background allows Melissa to educate her clients on creating the perfect base for makeup application by taking good care of their skin and how to look after hair. She is keen to pass on useful tips and tricks at any opportunity.
