Guest Services/ Makeup Artist

Being creative has always been in Melody’s blood – growing up she was the artsy kid who loved to color, draw, paint and take photos. After developing an obsession with all things fashion editorials in high school, Melody had hope to one day work in the industry. 

After an extensive career in the business world the opportunity to finally pursue the dream to work in the beauty industry came when Melody enrolled at the AVEDA Institute Denver in 2011.  Melody’s love and passion for the AVEDA brand has grown over the last decade where she has served in roles as a stylist, makeup artist, guest services team lead, AVEDA Institute certified educator, ambassador and salon manager. 

Melody’s devotion to editorial makeup has lead her to pursuing multiple avenues of education, traveling to learn with some of AVEDA’s top makeup artists around the country.  It has also lead to her creating behind the scenes at runway shows for Denver Fashion Week, Massif Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week and crafting photo shoots with Denver area photographers.  

Her knowledge and experience give her a unique perspective as she is often able to see things from many angles and help build the big picture.  Her talent for connecting with people and intuitively understanding their needs has lead to her success in helping guests, students and team members discover their goals.  As a double Capricorn she also thinks she gives great advice. Melody strives to inspire others, deliver caring service and rock a bold lip!When she isn’t in the salon – Melody enjoys spending as much time with her son Brody as she can, reading daily, painting occasionally and visiting her brother’s dog Perle who is her best friend.
