MELISSA THURSTON

Founder and Creative Colorist

Melissa is devoted to the art of hair. Her passion for hair first began when she attended The Salon Professional Academy in Gainesville, FL in 2014. Her first job was located in Jacksonville, FL at an elite Redken salon where she was an assistant to the owner. In the “Summit” style curriculum, she cultivated a structured business ethic to follow the practice on how to become a six figure hairstylist. Two years into her career, she moved back to Gainesville, FL to embark on a mission to learn a new salon culture by working for an Aveda salon. It was here where she flourished in color theory, understanding how to create a formula from scratch. She was able to attract a clientele to match her creativity and was able to produce the type of work that was trendy, fun, and desirable. It was also here where she adopted the spa-like atmosphere many clients can relax to, knowing they will feel refreshed by the end of service. In another two years, she was ready to grow as a business owner to what is now a signature brand, “Hair Full of Secrets.” Mel shares her knowledge with her clients, exchanging tips and tricks, therefore coveting the name.
