Melody Inman at The Clip Joint Salon

From a young age, it was clear that Melody’s passion lay in styling hair.

Now, with more than 30 years experience in the hair and beauty industry, her passion and love for her work has not faltered.

The high-end service you receive at The Clip Joint Salon is due to Melody’s commitment to offering an inviting and relaxing atmosphere for her clients.

Education remains another top priority for Melody and all of her staff.

Stylists travel to Goldwell and KMS California Academy locations a minimum of once per year to enhance their professional development through skills, knowledge and inspiration. In addition, Melody hosts private in-salon cut, color and styling classes several times a year. This on-site training is provided by a National Goldwell or KMS California educator – considered the best in the hair industry.

As a result of this dedication, Melody is pleased to announce that The Clip Joint Salon has been designated as a Goldwell Titanium Salon.

This prestigious status is awarded to less than 45 salons nationwide. The Clip Joint Salon is the only Goldwell Titanium Salon in the immediate region.

When asked about her hair styling skills, she will tell you that every day she learns something new about hair. She believes that she has been blessed with the ability to create and design hair styles that flatter and compliment your personal look and style. She truly believes that when you feel fabulous on the inside, it will show on the outside.
