Meet Your Styist

Hi! My name is Melissa Novak and if you ask my parents they would say that I am a natural-born stylist.  When I was a young child I cut my hair not once, but twice!  I was also known to have cut the hair of my dolls.  Because of this I was given the nickname "Buzzweed".  As I grew up I found great inspiration from my Aunt Val.  Since I was a child we would always go to her hair salon, and sometimes even her kitchen to get our hair done.  My mom and all my sisters would go together and make a day of it.  It was always so much fun and I would leave feeling amazing.  When I was in high school I expressed interest in the industry.  Being the wise Aunt that she is, she strongly encouraged me to find a job in a hair salon. She knew this would be the perfect opportunity to see if I would enjoy it.  So at the age of 16, I got my first job in a hair salon and immediately fell in love with the industry.  I knew in my heart this is where I belong.


Today, I am a master hair stylist at Charles Morris Salon.  I have been a licensed Cosmetologist since 2004, and have been employed at Charles Morris Salon since 2010.  I adore every aspect of my career, and with each passing year, my passion only grows.  I am a social, creative and experienced hair artist. I try to build strong relationships with my clients and strive to provide each client with a fun but relaxing experience.  I enjoy helping clients get creative through my specialty of adding color, depth and dimension.  Above all else, continuing education is the key to my success.  The cutting-edge education my salon offers allows me to stay focused, inspired and current on all the latest hair trends.


As much as I enjoy my career, I also love spending  time with my family.  My husband and three beautiful children keep me very busy and active.  As a family we are always doing something outdoors.  But my most favorite thing to do is to take the family out for ice cream. Even though I'm a giant sucker for a good ice cream cone, I typically live a healthy lifestyle.  I try my hardest to eat healthy and love training for the next local 5K.  Whenever I get a spare minute to myself you will find me making my next family scrapbook.

As your hair stylist, my goal will be to create the perfect look to fit your lifestyle.  I promise to listen to your specific needs, show you how to recreate your style at home, educate you on the correct products for your hair, and give you a fun and relaxing salon experience with each visit.  If you want to leave the salon with a smile on your face and confidence in your new look, then hit the contact button below to schedule an appointment now!

I can't wait to meet you!
