Melanie Ouellette has been in the beauty business for 20years. She hails from Boston where she graduated at the top of her class from Blaine Hair and Beauty School. Having no desire to stay in the cold weather, in the winter she moved to West Palm Beach Florida where her career took off. Melanie has been trained by such companies as Wella, L’Oreal, Kerastase, Tigi and Redken. She became an educator for up-and-coming assistants within her salon, and worked in the West Palm Beach area for 14 years. During the last 3 years Melanie traveled back and forth between Florida and Austin, and she has been dubbed the “jet-set colorist” by many of her clients. She specializes in color with a particular interest in blonde hair, although she is proficient working with all spectrums of color and styling. Her other love is special event styling. There is a special joy that Melanie gets when she knows she has helped someone feel beautiful on their special day.
Upon moving to Austin Melanie established J.S.P Hair and Color Design, now located within N Salon. The initials J.S.P hold a special place in her heart as they are the initials of her late mother who lost her battle with breast cancer in the mid 90’s. Melanie chose this name for her business in wanting to dedicate her hard work to the one woman who truly epitomized a strong work ethic.
