Meet Melissa Higman!
Hi! I'm Melissa. Welcome to Bello Haven Hair Extensions! I started my beautiful journey 11 years ago. I was sixteen when I received my first set of extensions. They brought me so much happiness and confidence, that I instantly knew I wanted to share that feeling with other woman.
After graduating from cosmetology school, at the Aveda Academy, working in the field and earning my way up the levels to become a recognized hairstylist. I felt that I hadn't reached my goal of giving that "feeling" of confidence and beauty to other women.
Between wearing all different kinds of extensions myself and installing them on numerous clients, I noticed that the current extension market was not enough. They either left hair messy or damaged... and didn't give an overall full, lavish look that every woman wants.
My dream of giving this feeling came true when my custom 2gram, I-Tip extension was created in early 2017. I combined all of my knowledge and love for hair into these strands, and after developed my custom Hand Tied and Narrow Edge Extensions as well.
My purpose in life is absolutely being fulfilled by being able to give my passion and MY HAIR to other women. They get to experience happiness, confidence, and beauty through Bello Haven.
In case you were wondering, and don't worry I get asked all the time...... Where did the name Bello Haven come from? Bello was inspired by my sweet baby girl, her name is Bella. I never knew how much happiness and joy one little love bug could bring until I had her. She is my absolute world! And Haven is for my dad. He who passed away from cancer 5 years ago. If it wasn't for him I would not be where I am today. I thank him everyday for this blessing and the strength he taught me. One of my future goals is to donate wigs and/or profits to a cancer society in honor of him. Imagine.... wearing Bello Haven Hair Extensions, not only are you getting the most beautiful hair, but also contributing people and families in need.
I offer certification classes for the Bello Haven methods and have more than 200 salons across the US using our extensions line. The very first full service Bello Haven Salon located in Northern Colorado officially opened its doors in June of 2019 and we currently have 36 employees in the Bello Family, all chasing their dreams. ⠀⠀
