Melissa was amazing! I was so happy with my hair cut! Every step of the way was a breeze. I have long thin hair and she knew how to cut it in a flattering way and only trimmed off what she needed to. She had so much great advice for hair care as well! I highly recommend!

She was so chill and nice and fun to talk to, to the point where I forgot I was getting my haircut and just thought I was hanging out. The haircut itself was amazing and exactly what I had been dreaming of, she knew exactly the vibe I was going for and NAILED it. 100/10 recommend this place and Melissa. The vibes were immaculate 💖👏🏻

I came in today holding a lot of anxiety about cutting my long hair short. Not only did Melissa make me feel so comfortable, but after showing only one side view photo of what I was going for she absolutely nailed it. I would recommend The Corner Room and Melissa to all and any of my friends. Thanks Melissa.

Over my 27 years of living, I have never once felt comfortable in a salon chair. She is so communicative and honest and sweet and kind and funny and Brilliant and intelligent and powerful and inspiring. I will never for as long as I live ever dream of going to another hairstylist she knows what's better for me than what I know. I'm so grateful for her! I also recommend her, and the corner room, to every single person I've ever met in my life that has complimented my hair or is looking for suggestions. XOXO
