Chase Denham's journey to becoming the manager of True Few Hair Salon was unexpected and surprising.
Chase hails from Pasadena, CA. He pursued a career in clothing design, moving to NYC in 2009. There, he immersed himself in the city, with a number of design jobs - including several years as the Men's Accessory Designer for Marc by Marc Jacobs. After 6 years in New York, Chase made the move back to Los Angeles. He continued his interest in the design industry by managing a clothing factory in the heart of the downtown Garment District.
In June of 2020, in the midst of a time of change, Chase decided to reunite with his friend, Laura Mittendorf - who he met back in his early days in New York and stayed close with ever since. Laura had just opened True Few Hair Salon and needed a partner to help run the place.
Chase jumped on the opportunity as a chance to try something different, support a friend and get involved in an exciting new business. He has loved being involved in the growth of the salon and getting to know all the amazing clients who call True Few "home!"

Melissa was born in Gallup, New Mexico and raised in Cameron, Arizona.
Melissa began her hair career 15 years ago. Early on Melissa knew the power hair has in our lives. Being able to change your outer appearance to match what you feel like on the inside is life altering. Hair definitely affects your mood and self image. Not having access to a salon on the rez, she would diy bleach, bright colors, and haircuts for herself or others that would let her. Hair has the power to make you feel confident and give you a sense of a new beginning. Putting your best foot forward.
Her hair expertise was sharpened when she became a stylist at Toni & Guy. There she mastered various cutting and coloring techniques.
Melissa loves staying current in her craft by seeking out education in-person or online.
Her specialities include creative coloring and precision cutting.
“I love collaborating with people who sit in my chair. I get inspired by their unique self and feel very fortunate to be able to help others create a way to express themselves through their hair.”
Her friends would describe her as having good energy, funny, and caring. When she is not behind the chair she loves to spend time with her children. One of their favorite activities is going on roadtrips.
Laura started her career nearly 15 years ago in Vancouver BC Canada, where she graduated top of her class at Marvel College. Devoting the first 6 years of her career to advanced education, through Bumble and Bumble, Toni and Guy, Loreal Professional, and working non stop behind the chair, she quickly grew a loyal following.
After many trips to New York for education at the house of Bumble, and styling backstage at NYFW for designers such as Alice and Olivia, Lacoste, and Chado Ralph Rucci, Laura decided to make NYC her home. Her incredible talent and exemplary style landed her a chair at the legendary rock and roll salon Mudhoney in Soho.
In New York she also found a new passion for motorcycles that eventually brought her to Arizona. She then spent 5 years bringing her unique hair approach to the clients of Downtown Phoenix at the top rated Salon RO5.
It is here at True Few that Laura is marrying all her experience and passions under one roof. Although she is a true pop culture junky, obsessing over music, fashion, books and everything in between, her true love is people. What makes her such a sought after stylist is not just her textured razor cuts, lived in balayage color, and modern approach to men's cutting, but the personal connection she forms with each and every person, that keeps them coming back again and again.
