Melissa O'Leary

Level 2 Stylist

I started working in a salon when I was 15 years old, shampooing and answering phones. After a few years of doing that, I realized that my true love was behind the chair. I started my apprenticeship journey in 2014 here at nir.va.na working as Debbie’s associate and I loved every second of it. One of my favourite parts of hairstyling is getting to know you, my guests, so I can create a look to your suit personality and lifestyle. Continued education, styling and coloring are all a few of my favourite things. Can’t wait to see you for your complimentary consultation!
