Melissa Gonzalez

Melissa Gonzalez has been a Farouk Systems, Inc. creative artist and educator for almost 13 years. Her specialty in upstyling, color, and cutting has given her many opportunities to travel around the United States such as New York, Nevada, California, Illinois, Florida, Texas, and Arizona just to name a few. Gonzalez has also formed part of the styling team for the Miss USA pageants for the past five years. She even traveled to the Philippines for a Miss Universe pageant where she styled contestants, judges and hosts.

The experience of working with the Miss Universe Organization has been one of Gonzalez’s greatest accomplishments. Her experience extends to working at countless photoshoots, events for Behind the Chair and Seventeen Magazine, among other hair shows. Melissa was also granted the opportunity to work at prestigious fashion shows like that of Helen Castillo for Project Runway and for Sherri Hill in New York. She continues to be an active executive educator who shares her passion and knowledge with different cosmetology schools, seminars and trainings. She does all of this while caring for her two children and running her salon called the Color Lounge Hair & Makeup Studio in Houston, TX.
