Shun Melson opened her Boss Brunch with the reason that she wanted to do such an event,
“When I first came into the industry, no one wanted to teach me anything. They didn’t want to answer any questions. They though if they taught me something that I would take their clients or steal their business. But that is not the type of mentality I want YOU to have, nor is it the type I have. I know my worth and I know that I am GOOD at what I do. When you WIN I WIN.”
Shun Melson is the perfect example of ‘work hard’ for what you want in life, ‘go hard’ for yourself and your brand, and finding a way to make the most out of every opportunity that is given to you. It was truly an honor to be able to hear her story at the Dallas Boss Brunch.

With a successful career as a celebrity stylist, personal stylist and owner of her newest baby (2 years and counting) her tee shirt line; Shun is a great example of a women gaining headway in a tight knit industry.
