Owner & Professional Groomer
Melissa has spent her life surrounded by dogs and cats of every shape and size. At the age of 10, she started to compete in Junior Handling and it was during this time that her passion for making pets look their best took root. The rule was that if she was going to show a dog, she was going to be the one to make him show-ring-ready. It didn’t take Melissa long to figure out that this was her dream job!
She started her professional career with a corporate company, graduating through a stylist program and working hard to develop her skills. Melissa quickly earned a reputation for high-quality care and service. In 2014, she picked up her brushes and set out to open her own salon, where she has been living her dream ever since.
Hayley loves variety and the opportunity to add a little sparkle to the world around her. In 2008, she was working in a grooming salon as a dog bather, thinking it was just another job. Watching the groomers around her, however, made her realize that this was the life for her – spending her day making pets look and feel their best. She decided to challenge herself and develop her skills in the field of grooming, mastering this special mix of art and science.
Combining her passion for color with a naturally easy-going approach that sets nervous pets at ease, Hayley loves nothing better than to find fun new ways to make them look like the rock stars they are!
