If you’re looking for a creative, authentic, and fun hairstylist that will give you an experience of a lifetime, then Mel is your girl.
Mel wanted a job where she could have a work/life balance, could be creative, and have every day be different from the last; (plus she needed a job where awkwardly hilarious conversation was acceptable) and she found all of that when she became a hairstylist.
Once she enrolled in cosmetology school she dreamed of working at a salon in Montrose surrounded by creativity and culture (not to mention the great food), and it became a reality once she joined Green Apple. She’s a total nerd, even when it comes to the science of hair, and that’s been helpful since she became a coach for the new associates so she can share her knowledge with them.
When she’s not at the salon (or watching a true-crime documentary while snuggling her beloved tuxedo cat) Mel writes award-winning fiction which ranges from horror to thriller. She moved over 20 times in her life, spending her formative years in Puerto Rico, California, and Washington, D.C., then making Houston her home. And before she started at Green Apple she only cut hair—but with months of classes and dozens of models, she’s now a color specialist.
While in her chair you can expect her to be real, she’s not going to recommend a treatment or service that you don’t need, and while Mel loves unicorn hair she’ll tailor every service specifically for that guest and their particular needs. You can read the latest bestseller while you’re visiting with her, or have a lively conversation about the latest Netflix show.
Before you stop by her chair to begin your hair journey, be sure to check out her Instagram @melgreenapple to see her latest work.
