Melvin is new to Austin and has already fallen in love with the city. He graduated from Ogle Cosmetology School in 2016 where he learned a lot about the Wella color line, color application and Balayage. He has always had a creative eye for fashion, especially wardrobe styling, and previously worked for a company doing wardrobe styling and makeovers. He felt that he was missing something in his career, and that something was hair. He originally wanted to go to barber school but his close friends who own a hair salon encouraged him to think outside the box. Melvin has realized through his experience that he enjoys women's hair and coloring. Melvin loves being super personable and making people feel good.
