Melissa opened Tu Bella in 2002 after being inspired by her own mothers’ hair loss 15 years ago. It was at that time, Melissa found herself wanting to know more about hair loss and wanted to become a hair loss specialist. Melissa began her education by traveling to China and England to learn the craft of wig making. In 2004, she became a LOOK GOOD FEEL BETTER volunteer, which helps women with hair loss and skin
effects from chemotherapy.
Melissa has taken great strides to offer clients the best in hair loss products that are available globally. She is working alongside Cesare Ragazzi, Follea, New Image Labs, Gemtress, Hair U Wear, Renee of Paris, and Theradome.
In 2013, She relocated Tu Bella to Lisle. Tu Bella is now in a larger facility which has allowed her to expand her hair loss business.
We are also current members of the National Alopecia Areata Foundation, American Hair Loss Counsel, and Trichotillomania Learning Center.
