Extensions MTL was founded in 2017 by Melanie Chabot, a hair enthusiast with a passion for making people feel their absolute best. Having herself experienced the transformative power of hair extensions, she decided to officially launch her own company after years of working her magic for fun.
In 2019, Melanie became an educator for Bellami Hair Professional, the largest hair extension company in the world, and has taught hundreds of stylists across North America since. She is deeply passionate about helping people fulfill their dreams as stylists, and enjoys showing others how to make a career out of hair extensions.
In 2021, Melanie onboarded the newest member of the team, Gabrielle. Having completed her Bellami Stylist training with Melanie, and having now worked for over 2 years in extension styling, she is now a senior stylist at Extensions MTL.

Founder, Stylist & Educator
Having received her Bachelors of Commerce from JMSB in 2014, Melanie's background in business, combined with her passion for entrepreneurship, resulted in the creation of Extensions MTL.
Now a Bellami Master Stylist and Educator, Melanie has an equal love for teaching as she does for hair extensions, and hopes to help other stylists realize their full potential.
Passionate about everything hair-related, it came as a natural next step for Gabrielle to enter the field of extensions. Professional and perfectionist, she works meticulously and is extremely detail-oriented.
Gabrielle is a certified Bellami Stylist, having completed training in all 4 extension methods: K-tips, Hand-tied Wefts, Volume Wefts and Tape-ins. She is extremely passionate about helping people feel their best through the power of extensions.
