“Melissa has been my eyebrow specialist for 4 years. She is fabulous! Melissa is very meticulous and her goal is to make sure I love my brows each every time I visit. I would not trust my eyebrows to anyone else is Nashville.”
“Melissa is a true artist! I had always wanted to have eyelash extensions and my brows done, but honestly I never trusted anyone, due to a horrible past experience. Melissa made me feel at ease. She checked the health of my lashes before she applied the extensions, and took her time to make sure I was comfortable throughout the service. She uses only the best quality products and her gentle demeanor and expertise, is what makes her amazing at her craft. I have officially become addicted to having lashes and only trust Melissa to keep them looking fabulous.
