You can’t help but smile watching Mell Guido (@ManesByMell on YouTube and Instagram). Her animated personality shines through in any videos or photo, making her a serious joy to watch. All the while, she’s sharing invaluable hair education for curly & wavy hair types.

Not to mention, her curls are always poppin’.

Take It From A Pro

To her credit, Mell isn’t just another beauty influencer who claims to know the biz. In fact, she’s a working hairstylist that started her channel to share “natural hair tips, to follow the beginning of [her] career in the beauty industry [and] the launch of [her] ‘big hair’ portfolio.” That’s right, hair has always come first for this bubbly and talented creative.

Her #TextureTuesdays have become a celebrated event for her nearly 400,000 YouTube subscribers and over 161,000 Instagram followers. Each week, Mell serves some serious hair education, from cutting on curly hair types to the effects of ingredients and water quality on texture and hair health.

Although her content focuses primarily on curly hair types like hers and her “seester’s,” don’t be fooled. This amazing stylist has also mastered cut, color and styling on just about every hair type.

You Get Me

As if her pure knowledge wasn’t enough of a reason to watch, tuning into Mell’s videos is just like sitting in the chair or catching up in the salon with an old friend –– one that’s got an especially great sense of humor and enthusiasm.

Plus, despite being an absolute beam of positivity, Mell’s not afraid to get real about life outside of the salon and the struggles of growing in her career. While so many beauty professionals choose this industry because of its creativity and freedom, 2020 has definitely put on the pressure and stress. It’s refreshing to see Mell come to the table with grace and honestly around such relevant topics.
