Empowering women to feel good about themselves and embrace their personal uniqueness is not just Antje’s vocation – it’s her passion. Early on, Antje experienced the joy of sculpting hair to capture each client’s special joy and personality while working alongside her parents in their fashionable German salons.
Antje’s father taught her to embrace her calling and act on it. Her mom taught her that discipline and professionalism are the hallmarks of an outstanding stylist. Soon after, Antje culled her talent through the influence of acclaimed hair artists like Marlies Möller, Martin Parsons and Vidal Sassoon. Yet quickly, she embraced her own authenticity as a stylist through her fascination with the artistic and the vintage-inspired, bringing her own spin to creating healthy, vibrant, liberating hairstyles and colors.

Growing up, Tatum was immensely attracted to painting and drawing. Today she feels fortunate to transfer that creativity and artistic flair to the canvas of hair. A bit bohemian, with a touch of rock and roll, Tatum loves to work with asymmetry or bold colors, yet can also be very subtle and natural in her styling as well.
As a former Schwarzkopf Professional Educator, Tatum has had the opportunity to work with great mentors such as Rossa Juenas, Matty Conrad, Joey Marchese and Beth Minardi. She excels in both hair coloring and haircutting and loves building relationships with her clients.

Every day, Melina looks forward to learning something new, whether it’s a new hair coloring technique or what’s trending on the entertainment scene in the city. She likes to style on the more natural and elegant side and loves incorporating edgy elements, inviting her clients to step outside of the box a little.
She began working at Ulta as a Prestige Consultant in 2011 and then teamed with other hair stylists and make up technicians at the spa inside Palmer House. Melina feels blessed to provide her clients with a positive and transformative experience in the chair.
