Although Melinda has been coifing, cutting, and coloring for over twenty years, she joins Republic after thirteen years in Brooklyn. With a fashion capital sense of style, Melinda expertly creates perfect shapes and trending color combining exacting cutting and structure with a bit of whimsy. She specializes in the textured hair of all ethnicities and is a pro at silk presses and grey blending for those clients wishing to transition out of all over color. Melinda’s resume is truly mind-blowing: trained extensively with the global education team at Aveda NYC, Melinda has studied around the world with Wella, Redken, Goldwell, John Sahag, Oribe, and Keune. Her hair designs have graced the cover of WWD and also seen on runways at New York’s Fall Fashion Week.
