Eastern North Carolina born and raised, Melinda Keener comes to Hanzo Nation with 15 plus years of hairstylist experience behind the chair. Although she is experienced in many hair services, short hair cutting has become her specialty–being labeled “The Pixie Queen.” Melinda has been a hair show platform artist for brands and brings spunk wherever she goes, including the stage. In a cutting class, you can expect her to show many different techniques while giving you in-depth reasoning behind her artistic and creative approaches to dry hair cutting. She customizes each cut for every individual model, treating them just like they are a guest behind her chair. Not only can you expect great cutting education from her, but she will also give you many laughs and plenty of witty, Southern sayings to remember for a lifetime.
