Meet 24-year-old model Melissa Rom. She might be associated to Paralympic sprint star Oscar Pistorius as his former love interest but this girl is very well known in Pretoria, South Africa.
She is the daughter of Gary Rom, one of South Africa’s leading hairstylists. She and brother, Calvin Rom, who all work closely together, are the heirs to Gary’s legacy of hair design, with over 20-years servicing the heads of Pretoria and Johannesburg.
Melissa who used to date Pistorius, who catapulted to fame at the 2012 London Olympics as the first double-amputee to compete against able-bodied athletes is expected along with over 100 more witnesses to appear in court for the trial he is currently facing for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp.
