Melissa gave my special needs child her first hair cut. When we got there she got down on her level and talked directly to my child (which a lot of people neglect to do). She cut her hair while I was holding my child in my lap, and wasn't even afraid to help move her feeding tubes and bag to better position us. She made it super fun for us and more importantly did an amazing job on her hair!

Because of that we decided to take my oldest child back for her hair cut, which again, she did an amazing job. She was fun and playful and even added some fun colors to her hair, which my child highly enjoyed!

I would recommend Melissa to everyone and anyone! She's a joy, and knows her stuff! We look forward to our next trip back to Shadowbox! Thanks Melissa!

I love going on to see Melissa. I have baby fine hair and she is always working with me to help it look full. From the way she cuts it to suggesting products that can help. I have been going to her for over 10 years to get my hair cut and always love the work she does. It really shows that she has a passion for what she does. 

I also had her do my hair for my wedding. She did an amazing job with an up-do even with my thin hair. I highly recommend her for all occasions.

Melissa already has a plan for me when I walk in, knowing that I tend to be undecided. Every time, it looks gorgeous, feels healthy, and is exactly what I wanted (or the style I didn't know I wanted). She has a gift for choosing the right color, and a way of guiding clients through a consult. She is super fun and has great taste and style. Even when I'm five weeks out from having my hair done, I still get compliments everywhere I go. I love the service and style I get!

I love the new shop! I'm a longtime customer of Angela Cudmore and will continue to go where she takes me! Angela is one of the best color experts and hairdressers I've known. I've never been disappointed only completely In Love again with my hair when Angela gets her hands on it! She alway knows what pick-me-ups I may need; whether it's an extra inch off or a highlight lighter or darker. I can always count on Angela to give that great look that I can enjoy for months ahead! Just wish she could come by my house and blow dry my hair out like she does in the salon! lol. So happy for you and best wishes to the New Shadowbox Salon!

Melissa is fantastic! Her sense of style is second to none. She is masterful at hair color. I have been seeing Melissa for many years and over those years she has gotten me through some tough hair times and gone out of her way to do what was needed, even when it took extra time out of her day. When I had to wear a wig due to chemo, she cut and styled the wig to perfection. When my hair grew back and reacted strangely to color from chemo chemicals she took extra time to make the color adjustments and styled what little hair there was to a great style. On top of all this, she is compassionate and supportive of non-profit and other community efforts. If you want a great style, great color and a fabulous salon experience, this is your place!

Fantastic service! This hair salon is run by by a hair designing genius. Not only will you love your haircut/color but you will throughly enjoy the experience! They have been my go to hair stylists for over 15 years!

Melissa listens to my ideas, tells me when they are not realistic - whether due to my hair type or styling abilities- and always comes up with a great cut or color to make me happy. Her new salon feels like a luxurious getaway, and Melissa's upbeat, friendly demeanor makes you feel welcome and comfortable immediately. Be sure to book an appointment with her soon!

-Sommer M.

So happy with my new haircut! Melissa listened to what I wanted, asked some qurstions, made me feel comfortable and spent a lot of time cutting my very thick, straight hair. I love its new bounce, it was reasonable and a great experience. Already made my second appointment with her!

-Gwen C.

Just came home from my first appointment with Melissa. Everything -- the space, the service, the level of knowledge and professionalism -- is impeccable. I was unsure about what I wanted, but Melissa guided me through, asking and answering questions, then came up with a plan. And now I LOVE my hair!

-Karen M.

Melissa is fantastic! I've never had anyone who understands my hair type, and what I am looking for more! I am an ex-hairstylist, and picky when it comes to my hair. I had a haircut 2 weeks ago, and a color last week, and I can't remember the last time I was this happy with my hair! Melissa is a very talented stylist.

-Mikel D.

Shadow Box salon is a beautiful and relaxing environment. I love being able to come here and relax and get pampered feel beautiful when I leave. Melissa is a top notch stylist and does amazing work.

Angela is the most knowledgeable, talented colorist & stylist! I'm here now relaxing w/color on & glass of wine admiring the decor! Laura Ashley meets contemporary west elm!!! I'm relaxed because Angela knows her stuff!! She looks way too young to have been in this business for 19 years. Not only do I admire her talents, but she is a wonderful & caring friend!

-Lori S.

Melissa has been doing my hair for years and I wouldn't have it any other way. She is the best! She started out as a hairdresser and has turned into a friend. My hair has never been healthier and she knows me so well that even when I want to go crazy with my hair, she reminds me of my past "experiments." Ha ha!!! Love her to pieces and love going to the Shadowbox!  

-Eileen H.
