About me 


I'm Melanie, color specialist & the owner of Color Collective Hair Studio located in sunny South Tampa FL. My specialties are balayage, lived in blondes/brunettes, and hand-tied hair extensions.

I am a Tampa native & a Florida State University alumna! I majored in studio art and minored in business before enrolling in cosmetology school. 

I'm a resident of St. Petersburg & live close to downtown! On my days off you can find me riding my bike to the pier, fishing on a boat, or taking my chihuahua to the dog park. 

I've been behind the chair for 10 years & I feel incredibly blessed to do what I love every day.
