Meet Melinda

Inspired Salon  Sarah Ashley Photography-46.jpg

If you just happened upon my blog and you have no idea who I am, Let me tell ya! I’m Melinda. I’m a 30 something hairstylist and mother of 3 daughters. I have been married to my husband and best friend, Jared, for the last 10 years. A little over 2 years ago we remodeled part of our home and built me an in-home salon (Inspired Salon) so that I could focus on my 2 loves. Hair and my kids. ;)  I am a part time stay at home mom and part time hairstylist. This school year my youngest kiddo went to kindergarten so I’m alone in my home until 3:00 each day. Can you say Hallelujah?! (Kidding but not kidding)


I used to blog a couple years ago before we built the in home salon. At that time my blog was primarily a mom blog. I made up craft ideas, mom scheduling, organization with kids… yada, yada, yada. This blog is going to be so different though! So much more me! My first blog was me but it was me through mom colored glasses. Now, with my little loves off at school each day, I have more time to be creative. I want to share beauty and makeup tips, hair ideas and tutorials, and everything else that makes me, me. This will be more of a beauty/ lifestyle blog but I’m still a mom so I’m sure there will be some mom topics that come into play.


Some of my hobbies include; playing with the makeup samples at Ulta, watching, “America’s Got Talent” with my fam, hanging out with our friends, mentoring teenage girls and women, going on overseas mission trips, reading, exercise, and my most favorite thing; dating my husband. ;)


I’m so excited about this little blog as a fun, creative outlet for me to work on in this new chapter of my life. Please know that I don’t take myself too seriously. I love myself and have learned to embrace the way that God made me but I am so far from perfect. That being said, please don’t think this is another one of those blogs where she has it all together and is going to make me feel bad about myself. On the contrary. Most days I wake up WAY later than I was supposed to, I often have hairy legs that need to be shaved, my finger nails always look like crap, I have clinical depression, and I rarely make my bed. HA! That was enough to scare you away but bear with me. Even though I fail daily, I still love myself and I’m happy to share that love with you and send some positivity into the universe.


Whoever you are out there, I’m happy to write something to you. If there are any hair or makeup looks that you would like to learn how to do, let me know in the comments and I’ll start working on that for you! Please also feel free to send any skincare or makeup questions my way and I’ll do my best to answer those. Have a great day today and share some positivity with someone. A little kindness can go a long way.
