Luxury hairstylist & makeup artist, & Creator of Melmosa Hair
Sometimes in life you have to take the long way around to find your true passion. Such is the case for Melanie Hasselbach, hairstylist and luxury makeup artist from upstate New York. Melanie started her journey attending four - yes four! - colleges and exploring countless majors when she knew she needed a major change, literally. Hair school it was!
Since then Melanie has never looked back. She continued with her education, including makeup and barbering school. So passionate about the industry, Melanie became an educator for Cosmetology, Makeup, Esthetics, and Barbering.
Between styling behind the chair and instructing, Melanie now travels around the country as a leader in the bridal and special event beauty industry, creating perfectly glamorous, romantic, and trend-setting looks. She is ecstatic to bring her curated line of clip-in extensions to her clients everywhere through Melmosa Hair.
When Melanie isn’t busy glamming up brides or perfecting a custom cut or color, she loves working on her new home with her hubby Andrew of 10 years, and being a mom to 3 boys; Kilyan (7), Ruary (3), and baby Mallex.
