Who is Rockin' beauty by Mel?
Hello and welcome. I'm Melissa M. Vigil, but all that know me call me Mel. Let me ask you, what is it that makes you happy? For me, it’s beauty, business and life. I love sharing my passions, and what interests me. I have a unique background in technology. I have an Associates of Science in Management Information Systems and attended UNM for a all my business classes. I have worked for the State and Federal government, as well as local casino's and fast food restaurants.
One day I decided to turn my life upside down, I quit my well paying job at LANL and decided to go back to school. My life was forever changed! Before I left I was working in the Computer Science field and boom, my life changes happened and now I am a licensed cosmetologist since 2013 and a small business owner since 2015. Talk about a complete life change, especially coming from a girl that didn't think much of beauty growing up, in highshool I was a little bit better but did the minimum of anything beauty. I was a tomboy and never, ever thought I would be in the beauty industry.
I offer online services as well as in person beauty services. My back ground is unique, and all of my life experiences has led me to where I am today. If you don't make your life your own, no one, but yourself can make things happen! I am passionate, full of positivity, and take each lesson and learn from it! Self love has been my constant struggle in life but I work on this each and every single day! I've learned the hard way that if you don't love who you are, others will take you for granted, and won't value, you or anything you do, and this was a big eye opener for me. I have learned so much! I'm always learning something new each and every day!
I tell myself this every day, "I do what I want, and love what I do! I've learned to love myself, and it's not selfish, it's a necessary" it reminds me to stay in my own lane and on my own path.
I decided I have to adjust to this new world, step out of my comfort zone and pivot my business, I've added online shopping to my business and I can still continue to provide services online since the services in persona have become limited. I will adjust when necessary, and really focus on what is important to me and what's best for my clients. Beauty is my passion, it starts from within, healthy & wellness, skin, makeup, hair and using the right products and having a professional beauty advisor to answer questions you may have, I hope you feel comfortable with reaching out, together we can start your beauty journey. If you resonate with one or any part of my story you are in the right place. I hope you enjoy browsing my site and all of the unique content & services I have to offer. Take a look around; perhaps you’ll discover what fuels you as well. Browse and enjoy! Mel

Word on the Street
I truly appreciate all of my clients and their feedback and support. I look forward to each and every appointment, whether it's in person or online. Thank you! Mel
Melissa is so talented and personable! I love her cuts and color. I am very happy with my hair these days, and am getting lots of compliments on it! Mel will definitely work with you to achieve your hair goals and you will walk out of her sweet studio feeling happy and gorgeous!
Mel is a one-stop shop when it comes to beauty. She has done so many services for me-photo shoot makeup and hair, hair color, hair cuts, custom blend foundation, and more! She takes time to do the research to make sure that the products she is using on our hair is great quality and great result. I continue to buy hair care products from her because since Mel has been doing my hair it has never been healthier and grown faster.
I recently had some professional head shots taken. Mel did an amazing job with my hair and make up for the shoot. I highly recommend her for all of your hair and make up needs!
Love how she is able to shape my hair into it's own way of being beautiful!
Mel is a true artist. She helps you find your signature style. Mic drop.
What an amazing experience!! Not only is Mel talented, she listens to your wants and makes them happen! I always have such great results long after I leave the Studio. She's done my haircuts, coloring, highlighting, make up, and now extensions! I love love love love love the results every time.
When I win the lottery, Mel will definitely be in my entourage!
Mel recently did my makeup for a headshot session and can I just say, WOW! She did my makeup so that it was natural, but also fun and edgy (per my request!) without going overboard. I have never felt so lovely. Thank you Mel!
Melissa is AMAZING! She is the nicest, most sincere person you'll ever meet, and she really cares about her clients. It is important to her to know her clients, and more importantly, she does what it takes to exceed her client's expectations. And on top of all that...she's an incredible business woman!! I highly recommend rockin' beauty STUDIO.
