Mellie salon offers a fun, relaxing yet upscale environment and fantastic styling, cuts and advice! I have been getting my cut here for 5 years and I would not use anyone else.
Melanie's talent goes beyond cuts and daily styles, although these talents are second to none. She and the stylists from Mellie salon created fabulous styles and updos for myself, 6 bridesmaids, 2 Jr bridesmaids and a flower girl. They created styles that showed off individual personalities and still maintained an overall look with magnificent ease. They all listened to each girl's requests creating styles that were personal and gorgeous! All the while the room was full of laughter, dancing and music!
I highly recommend Mellie for regular hair cuts, highlights and grand events alike.
Man does Mellie know hair. She is one very talented gal!
I went prematurely gray at the age of 16 and have been coloring my hair for the past 15 years. I ve moved cities twice in the past 5 years (to DC and back to Boston recently) and have had some seriously traumatic hair experiences in trying to find the right colorist.
With that said, I came back to Boston about two months ago, and went back to my old colorist. He dyed my roots too dark, didn t pull the color through my entire head so I looked like a calico kitten. Then to fix the botched dye job (which was also done poorly) I was charged $400. Horrific.
I found Mellie Salon through a combo of Yahoo/Citysearch/YELP, and figured going to Mellie was worth a shot. She listened to my concerns, and was upfront about both the price and look of what she was going to do to fix my motley colored head. She did a beautiful job on the color, and after the color, she cut my hair, and sometimes getting the cut is scarier than the color, because I think it much harder to fix if done wrong. Mellie cut the hair the best it s ever been cut, she s a master...I love it! She is funny, honest, professional, and excellent at her job.
My highlights, single process, and a glaze, and haircut + style cost $265 which I thought would be an impossibility in the Boston area...
Love this salon and found my new hair home!
Best Color and Cut Around – I went to Mellie's for my annual fall tune up and put my hands entirely of her new colorist/hair stylist, Lindsay. Lindsay and Mellie talked me out of the rut I have been in for twenty years, cutting to the curl. (For years, I've spent hours trapped in the bathroom with product trying to straighten very wavy hair with little success.)
It looks terrific, wavy, and healthy, stylish, yet true to who I am and what my hair can do.
Lindsay also updated my highlights, using lowlights as well, then added a glaze so that my color had depth, shine and looked warm and natural.
Thank you Lindsay!!!!
Downtown Styling in the Burbs – I went to Mellie's to get my hair cut and colored, didn't have any idea what needed to be done, just knew it was a mess. Thankfully, I went to right place.
I had a personal consultation with Mellie, the owner of the salon about what I was looking for, and she brought over a new stylist Kristin to help me attain that goal.
The hair cut was stunning, they were able to keep it long but it is incredibly stylish and low maintenance, something I didn't even know was possible. And the color? Kristin suggested using low lights and highlighs, and though I was nervous at first, they took years off my age, are very flattering to my skin tone, and I finally feel like I belong in 2012.
Thanks Mellie and Kristin!!!!
SO HAPPY TO HAVE FOUND YOU! – FABULOUS COLOR -- Katelyn was my colorist (and new BFF) the salon was inviting and had the cutest little greeter (an adorable dog)
This salon is BIG CITY quality at a SUBURB value.
Loved the service, loved the people and love my hair!
Thank you Katelyn! I See you in 5 to 6 weeks!
Excellent service! – This place is amazing, and a fantastic value. I decided to try this place after 10 years of going to my previous salon. Sometimes I left there in tears but everyone was so nice and familiar, I chalked it up to my difficult hair and accepted my fate as someone who could not have great hair.
...until I met Janine. She took the time to understand my hair's unique fine mess of one third straight, one third wavy, and one third ringlets of curls. She asked how I wear it and gave me two different options that would work.
I honestly had no idea my hair could look this good. I had no idea my face could look this could with great hair. I already made an appointment to go back. I'm sold.
"Best of Boston" Hell Yeah! – I went to this salon after seeing they had won the "Best of Boston" award by Boston Magazine for 2011.
So I take the plunge, hoping that periodical knows what the hell they are talking about... OK, I'm a sucker, right?
Let me say...Boston Magazine definitely knows what the hell they are talking about (they got it right)...
I went into Mellie Hair Salon for them to fix my botched color, because the last south shore salon I went to, which won't be named, really screwed up my color big time.
I landed Janine, and fortunately she is a real pro. She discussed my options with me after looking in-depth at my present "crappy" color. She gave me the low down. What we could do, what we couldn't do. Thanks for being honest, I think :-)
Yes indeed, thanks for being honest, Janine. My color now looks super. My boyfriend even loves it. You fixed the shitty color job, and now I look human again. Wait, more than human, I actually look pretty. I'm recovering from the shock as I write.
This salon is small, busy and rocking! If you want the tranquility of a spa, please go someplace else. But, if you want a real HAIR SALON, full of hair experts and professionals... go here! They know their stuff, it is obvious,
It is still amazing she was able to turn me from "Mrs. Frankenstein" to "Mrs. Fantastic", but somehow Janine pulled it off.
Don't be fooled by the size of this salon, small it is, but you won't get better hair services anywhere east of the Mississippi...I'd bet on that! You are the best...Mellie Hair Salon...thanks for fixing my hair disaster!!! I'll be back, for sure!
Wow, Superb! – A close friend of mine gave me a birthday gift certificate to Mellie and I used it toward a hair cut + style last weekend. I had an incredibly pleasant experience from the moment I was greeted by the front desk staff (James?) The salon is absolutely simple, with nice, yet very beautiful decorations and ambiance. I would not have imagined a hip, cool place like this existed in the suburds. What a treat! The haircut with Kerry was excellent and I truly enjoyed the entire experience. She was professional, sweet, obviously highly skilled, and polite. I highly recommend Mellie Salon if you are looking for a special place for hair styling with a positive vibe.
I just love Mellie Salon, and I really do look beautiful! I can't even count all the compliments I've received on 2 hands :-)
Spectacular Hairstyle – I have now been to Mellie Salon twice, first time was for a Brazilian Blowout (still looks awesome after 2 months), the second was just a few days ago. Both visits were phenomenal! The salon is bright, clean and uncluttered, the staff are friendly, professional and helpful, and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. The first time I sat down my stylist named Jennifer did my Brazilian Blowout in about 1 hour and did a great job. I gotton sooo many compliments.
The second time was with owner Mellie ( I had heard she is a top-ranked, Boston area hairdresser, so the $70.00 pricetag for a cut + style with her didn't bother me), I explained the the basic look I was going for and she ran with it, giving me a haircut that was exactly what I wanted, and was perfectly suited for me. It was better than what I even had in mind! This type of talent is hard to find.
Both were professional and conversational. After bouncing between various sub-par salons I have finally found a great salon that actually gives me a haircut instead of just crabbing some shears and taking my money. Defiantly a place that I will be returning to for many years!
BAD STYLE! OVERPRICED! SNUBBY!! – i m suprised to see any good reviews about this place!! it s absolutly horrible!! HORRIBLEEE ! i would have gotten better hair cut at supercuts ! im not kidding she gave me little girl hair cut with no style , no layers, she was done in 10 min, she started to blow dry another 5 min. my hair looked sooo much better BEFORE i went to mellies, she ruined my hair style i had, when she finished blow drying my hair looked FRIZZY... !! i can tell she gets easily annoyed with her clients, she has bad attitude!
i went to meet my friends after , they asked me if i went to get my hair cut yet. they couldnt belive i already went. mellies is very expensive, if she does a good job i would maybe understand but total rip off, either she should go back to hair school to learn more , or she should reduce her prices!!!! i would nt even go back there for free!!!!
