Melinda Kay is from a small town in eastern NC. She has been behind the chair for almost two decades and was a salon owner for 10. Ms. Kay is the epitome of southern charm.

When Melinda is not behind the chair, you can find her enjoying a glass of sweet tea, spending time with her children, or enjoying the mountains unless cold; she would then prefer an air-conditioned room. This calm and humble approach to life has formulated a haircutting style all her own.

Melinda has a passion for precision cutting, product education, and mentoring others. She has mastered a haircutting technique, the “Chop Suey,” and created a name all in her own, the “Dixie Pixie.” Her unique approach and a constant eye for detail make her one of the most sought-after artists in the country. Melinda has an eye for movement and texture, Y’all will see!

This class will leave you with a host of knowledge. The art of creating southern looks has taken years of work, and Melinda would love to help you and your salon grow. There is one warning, Saying “y’all” by the end of every class is generally in the cards.
