As a professional hair stylists beauty is important to me and to my clients. I am originally from Hawaii so I named my new salon Nani Loa, which means "most beautiful"in Hawaiian. I have been in the beauty profession for 20 years. I have a bachelors degree in Psychology which most of my clients find so appropriate in that I am a great listener, the results of which find a way to the real world of hair cut and color. I love learning new things and attend Beauty Emporiums, Symposiums, lectures and other educational classes which helps keep me on the "cutting edge" of the beauty business. This also keeps me excited about my profession and I love bringing new ideas to my clients. I am a huge fan of Goldwell Color because my clients appreciate that this product is true to color, lasts longer and provides a real world shine to hair. I use and sell products that work for me and only recommend those products which I personally use such as Redken, Pureology and Matrix. I am a happy, proud mom with three beautiful boys, all of whom are interested in the beauty business. It's a family affair! I am a welcoming kind of gal so please pick up the phone and call for a free consultation. Aloha, Melissa Montijo
