Melanie Baringer


Melanie Baringer, Hologram Salon's owner and Master Stylist, has made a name for herself with hard work, a positive attitude, and a dedication to constantly improving her craft.  After leaving a career in academics to follow her dream of being a hairstylist, Melanie apprenticed under the esteemed Donna Means for 3 years. After 10 years of working in Athens' top salons, Melanie continued to follow her dreams and opened Hologram Salon on Athens' classic Baxter Street.  With an amazing eye for seemingly every head of hair, Melanie has a down to earth approach, whether she is working in the salon or styling for a show. “Hair is your biggest accessory and worth your investment. Healthy hair is beautiful hair.” When she isn't at the salon, Melanie is playing with her two Pug-Boston Terrier dogs and annoying them by taking their pictures (again).
