I've been going to Mel for sev...
I've been going to Mel for several years now for my hair. I change my hair pretty drastically and very often and I've now gotten to the point with Mel where I'll give her a general idea of what I'm looking for (leave it long or cut it off) and let her do the rest. She's great at anticipating what I may or may not like, remembering the colors that worked well on me and can do wonders with my very tricky hair. My hair is fine, but I have a ton of it and it's straight but has a random wave at my neck that very few stylists haven't managed to completely screw up. I love my hair every time I leave there and get a lot of compliments on it. She's even somehow managed to keep my hair in great shape regardless of how many drastic changes I decide to make with the color! I happily recommend Mel to friends and have never heard anyone disappointed with her service. I even got my boyfriend to go to her and she did a great job on his hair as well!
Since Kieu has come on board I decided to try getting a manicure with her. I have previously gone to another local salon for their shellack treatment, but wanted to give Kieu and the Gellish treatment a try. I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO SHELLACK! Gone are the days of sitting at the bar at the nail place drinking wine through a straw because my hands had to sit under the UV lamps for another 10 minutes before they were dry. I always get a french manicure and I got really sick of the shellack either chipping or cracking and I haven't experienced that with the Gellish at all. My nails have gone 3 weeks looking perfect with the exception of the growth. Kieu takes her time and does a wonderful job with the manicure.
The environment in the salon is homey and relaxing. They offer water, coffee, wine, beer and a great selection of magazines to browse through. So far, I've loved the products that Mel has used on me. The shampoo chairs are so much more comfortable than ones I've been in previously and Mel's scalp massages are to die for! Overall its a great location and I can't wait to see what other services they will have to offer!
