with a passion for the hair industry, melissa started her journey at the aveda institute in 2011. one of her highlights in her career was being a hairstylist to the new orleans saintsations for multiple years. she has continued her education by receiving certification in vomor tape in extensions, and babe hand tied extensions. also, melissa has worked with many different color lines to further her knowledge of the hair color world. she believes in this industry there is always room for growth and continuing education. one thing she admires about traci woodard salon is the team environment, and family like atmosphere. melissa enjoys the one on one time with each guest that sits in her chair, and getting to know them on a more personal level. in her free time, melissa loves to spend it with her family and friends. she is also always ready to explore somewhere new.
