Mellie Hair Salon is a magical, hybrid of a high-end salon and corner beauty shop, a place where women can get the latest, cutting-edge techniques in cutting, coloring, and styling, as well as a dose of friendly conversation and laughter. Mellie Hair is upscale with no attitude. Completely independent from manufacturers, every choice of product at Mellie Hair is carefully chosen personally by Mellie, and recommended with integrity by our staff. Quality services and unique products should never come with the common snootiness associated with upscale salons, and Mellie Hair Salon brings the perfect balance.

“We do hair,” says Mellie, a master stylist who honed her craft over nearly two decades in Boston-area shops, including 10 years at Wellesley’s Grettacole. “We’re not in the retail business. We don’t do broad-based beauty. There’s no spa, no wall of products. We specialize in hair, we are hair warriors.”

Mellie, who believes people are moving back to specialties, shuns the one-stop shop solution in favor of a small, unintimidating neighborhood place that knows hair and, just as important, knows its clients. “It’s about personalized haircutting and knowing what works for you,” she says.
