I have been a stylist for 28 years. I have worked for The Hair Shop Inc. for the last 24 years. I have managed for Oren and Diana O'Dell for 20 of those years. I began with them at the Parker and Highway 7 location, and then started management for them at the Ridgeview and 151st Street location for three years. Then we opened the 135th Street and Brougham location, and I have managed there ever since. I retired from behind-the-chair work to be a full-time manager and take over the retail buying for the company. It has been a great experience and opportunity. But through the years, I came to miss the one-on-one connection I had with clients and have started doing hair again three days a week (Wednesday 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Thursday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.). I am welcoming old clients back, and I am always looking for new ones.
My education covers a wide range of topics, as I’ve dedicated myself to learning all about the business. I have trained with Redken in coloring and cutting in New York City. I have gone to conventions in Chicago, taken numerous classes in Las Vegas, and taken several business classes. At the salon, we have continuing education courses almost every month and I enjoy learning what’s new, on top of what has been around for a while. I have also attended several hair conventions in Kansas and Missouri.
I have helped in the community through the years and have held various board positions. I feel like Olathe is a great place to work and live with its feeling of home. I enjoy spending time with my family and take great pride in being a grandma.
My name is Melanie Peterson. I began my career over 20 years ago with The Hair Shop and have been a assistant manager for 15 of those years. I have worked at both of The Hair Shop locations. I have attended a variety of seminars, events and hands on classes in New York and Las Vegas all to stengthen my understanding of hair color and design. I specialize in highlighting, color, and precision cutting. I love the opportunity to make someone look and feel great by either changing color, adding highlights, or just giving a fresh new haircut. I work behind my chair 4 days a week. My hours are : Wednesday 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Thursday 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. , Friday 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
