Melissa Riso took to Instagram to share an exciting new goal, and the model looked cut, sitting poolside while making the announcement.
In the image, the celebrity hairstylist sat on a black wrought iron pool lounge chair that had a blue-and-white striped cushion on it. She posed sideways on the lounger with her legs crossed, wearing an off-the-shoulder, cream-colored crop top that had ruching over her chest and was wrapped around her rib cage. It looked like the straps of a pink bra were visible over her shoulders, as the garment provided viewers a peek at the actress’s ample chest.
On the bottom, Melissa wore a pair of Daisy Dukes that highlighted her long legs. She paired the outfit with brown wedge sandals that showed off her light-colored pedicure.
Melissa appeared to wear soft, shimmery eye makeup with dark eyeliner and mascara. Her lips seemed pink, and blusher might have accented her cheekbones. The model wore her long, dark locks in loose curls, which fell over both shoulders from a side part. She held pieces of her brunette hair in one hand, which had a light manicure. Several gold chain necklaces of different lengths completed the casual outfit.
In the caption, the actress revealed that she’s planning to make a significant career change. Although she currently, acts, models, and cuts hair, she plans to start college next week and hopes to get a degree in nursing.
Melissa’s Instagram followers showed her some love for the update, with more than 6,000 hitting the “like” button and several hundred leaving a positive message for her and wishing her well on her new life path.

So I wanted to announce that I’ll be starting College next week! I decided to get into nursing ???? and change my career completely. Durning the time I’m in school I’ll still be modeling, acting and running my two hair businesses. But it’s time for a different life and career once I graduate. I’ve been in those businesses since 2005. When I put my mind to something I am determined to reach my goals. Being a nurse is my new goal in my life. ???? Wish me luck on this new journey! ????????????????????⚕️ #school #nurse #college #newlife #newbeginnings #career
