-- Melissa Cave


I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and started my hair training in 2012. After beauty school I started furthering my education at a concept Aveda salon in the Chicago land area. Along side in-salon training, I took many classes at the Aveda Institute of Chicago. I specialize in haircutting, color and special occasion styling. I’m so blessed to be part of the team at Kane and Company.

Why Kane & Co?

When I was in search of a new salon, I wanted to continue using Aveda. Kane and Company offered that opportunity. Alongside that, this salon has an amazing environment from kind hearted, talented people to a very relaxing atmosphere.


What/who do you look for inspiration?

I look for inspiration everywhere! I enjoy finding inspiration from the general public; finding styles and color techniques I appreciate, along with the different types of social media like Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook.


What is your favorite downtown Champaign restaurant?

My favorite Champaign restaurant is Watson’s Shack and Rail. They have amazing fried chicken!


What is your most prized possession?

My most prized possession is love and the ability to serve people. The love that is shown to me from family, friends and clients. The ability to serve others knowing that everyday I can come to work and make a difference in someone’s day. Having the knowledge and ability to do hair, I can stay connected and present in people’s lives!
