As co- owner of Smitten Boutique Salon and Smitten on Washington, Melanie is a passionate beauty industry veteran. After receiving a BA in fashion merchandising, Melanie decided to pursue a career in cosmetology and never looked back. After working with her co- owner Lisa in a salon in McLean, VA for over six years, they joined forces to create the Smitten brand in 2011. Smitten Boutique Salon will be celebrating its 11th anniversary this year, and their most recent venture, Smitten on Washington, will be celebrating its second year. Melanie continues to take clients, while also working mostly on the business aspect of things. She has a love for mentoring and heads our apprenticeship program; to ensure proper training of each and every stylist and teach them the Smitten way. When she's not in the salon, you can find her spending time with her family and friends and getting her hands in anything creative.
