I think it was eighth grade when I realized I wanted to be a hairstylist. Today I also microblade and do lashes. Expressing my creativity and artistry while connecting with all kinds of people; sharing stories, laughing, and building friendships… makes this the perfect profession for me. I love seeing my clients leave alive after they see their new look. Nothing beats that, seeing them leave feeling excited, confident and comfortable in their own skin.

In my free time, Im a mother of a beautiful little girl and I enjoy traveling, working out, and continuing my education of my skills trying to keep up with the latest trends.


Melissa has known she wanted to work in the beauty industry since she was a young girl. She remembers feeling the excitement of putting on her grandmothers red lipstick and instantly falling in love with makeup.

Melissa graduated with Honors from Aveda Fredric’s Institute (Cincinnati) in May 2016 after completing their Managing Esthetics program. She loves making others feel good about themselves and says her goal is to be the best part of someones day.

After years of helping others with skin and doing event makeup, Melissa joined Lavish Cincinnati to further her knowledge and to open new doors to her clients. She is excited to work in a new environment and to meet many new amazing clients! “I couldn’t have picked a better team to start a new path in my career! Makara and Lavish Cincinnati are the best!”

Melissa is a wife and mother of 3 kids. When she is not at the salon, she loves to spend time with family, going to baseball games and concerts with her husband.


Ever since her sophomore year in high school, Sophie has known that she wanted to pursue a career in the beauty industry. Sophie began her journey by doing hair and has been a hairstylist ever since graduating with her cosmetology license in 2018. Working in the beauty industry she has found her passion in helping her clients turn their dream look into a reality. 

By joining our team at Lavish, Sophie is expanding her skillset to include the world of lashes. She has taken an opportunity to develop more skills and find her specialities in the beauty industry. “Joining Lavish is a great experience for me to grow as an artist while working with my amazing team!” Because cosmetology has become such a passion for Sophie it is truly a part of her life in everything she does. 

Between working two jobs Sophie still finds time to travel, spend time with family, and go to concerts with friends.

Kristin Scarlatella LAVISH CINCINNATI


My name is Kristin and I have been passionate about makeup since I was old enough to buy it. Within the last five years I have taken a special interest in the latest trends with eyebrows. From tinting and shaping to permanent makeup. I truly love what I do and continuing to learn and grow within the salon. Even though it has its challenges I’m excited to have this opportunity and being able to make people feel beautiful has been the most rewarding part.
