Mel Ochoa



Mel is one of our newest and brightest stars! Another East Coaster stylist who lives for balayage, brunette's, and long layers!

When you first meet Mel you instantly feel comfortable and relaxed, which makes sense as she pursued a career in nursing before coming to us.

Don't let Mel's calm demeanor fool you though! She completed our rigorous apprenticeship program with flying colors under fellow Chicagoan: Maddie Longobardi - Head of Education at UB with over 13 years of experience.

If you are a dark haired gal in search of that perfect lived in balayage - Mel's your girl!! Para todas mis chicas que tienen pelo oscuro y quieren ser rubias Mel es la persona indicada para guiarte en el proceso! ¡HABLA ESPAÑOL!

In her free time, Mel likes to keep a balance: Orange Theory and Moscow Mules (but not at the same time lol!!)

As our most voted Betty of the Month WINNER, we just love Mel and seeing her beautiful work on the floor is just further proof that she made the right choice in careers.
