Melissa Bynoe

Independent Contractor – Natural Hair Care Specialist

Hello, my name is Melissa Bynoe and I am a native of Guyana. I have been a stylist at The Nappy Hutt for almost 2 years now. Originally, a customer, I saw something special about the salon and hired myself. Yes, I literally hired myself and showed up for work as announced on December 1, 2012. Prior to becoming a stylist at The Nappy Hutt, I did not realize the natural talent I had for doing hair. I began as a salon assistant/shampoo girl and part time receptionist.

My interest in learning about hair, specifically natural hair, grew and I requested to be trained. Having successfully completed the Taliah Waajid 3-Day Natural Hair and Braiding Seminar, I am certified in 30+ healthy hair care techniques. I have grown in knowledge and in confidence.

I specialize in loc maintenance and natural styling. Looking to expand the salon, I plan to be a part of the growth of The Nappy Hutt in Atlanta, Georgia and Texas in the very near future. I am a licensed braider in the state of Texas and also plan to become a Licensed Braid Instructor in the very near future. It will be my pleasure to service you!
