HI! My name is Melanie AKA Mama Mel and I am the owner of this humble little Suite. Let me give you a little back ground information on me, as i know it can be a little nerve racking working with a new Stylist.
Truth be told, doing hair was not something I dreamed about as a child. During my teen years I loved experimenting with different styles on my friends and my own hair. The ironing board and iron technique was very real. (This was the early 90’s by the way LOL) But never thought of it as a career choice. Fast forward to 2001, mother of a 1 year old and pregnant with my second child, realized i should probably get my life together (That’s definitely sarcasm). During that year, I attended Cosmetology school in Bloomfield, NJ. Unfortunately, life had other plans and I did not finish. I moved to CT, where i was lucky enough to find a job that allowed me to pay the bills and raise my kids for the next 10 years. But that’s what that was, a job. As my family got older and I had more freedom to explore a career, we decided to move to MA and it is there that I attended Jolie Beauty Academy in November of 2011 and graduated and passed my State Boards in August of 2012. YAY!! I have had the pleasure of meeting really cool people through hair these past 7 years. There is nothing like seeing the inner light shine through someone when you’ve given them a great color, cut or style! Hair is pretty powerful.
I specialize, but not limited to, Eclectic Colors (un-natural colors) and Razor Cuts. Feel free to check out my Instagram for my portfolio and definitely text or DM me with any questions. I’d love to meet you and your hair!
Mel was the 1st stylist I allowed to do fantasy colors on me. She did not disappoint!!!! She was honest about the stages and taking care of my hair to sustain the color longer. She is so talented, I brought my mom the next time, who has been complaining, until she met Mel. She took the time to listen to my mom and understand her frustrations with other stylists. When Mel left her previous studio, it took me a lot to trust anyone else…..I sought out Mel again❤️Reunited and it feels so good💇♀️
Mel first laid her ever so talented hands on my hair over 2 years ago & I’ve never looked elsewhere! She has cut my hair, dyed it, highlights, curl it, straighten it and not once did I leave her chair thinking I don’t like it & that is a fact. She is such a gifted stylist & a great soul! She truly cares about her clients & isn’t in it just to make $$$ She has become way more than my stylist, she is family! I have recommended her to many family & friends and they all loved her! Check her out, you won’t be disappointed!
I was always a do-it-yourself kind of girl. Hated the process of finding a hair stylist. Then came Mamamel. She made my hair healthy again, threw in some highlights for a younger look, and helped me ease into having bangs. The visits are always very relaxing. Mel is very professional yet very comfortable to talk to.
Let me say…. sitting in Melanie’s chair makes you feel like your hanging out with a close friend, a confidant. She’s in tune with your hair needs and your personal needs! Never have I left her chair disappointed. My hair is about the only thing I’m vane about and she is on point every single time! I hardly make requests but let her do her thing. I’m there to relax, get beautified and enjoy some me time. It takes a great stylist to understand someone’s hair needs and wants and be able to be personable. She’s got it all!!
Okay so I usually tend to be sooooo iffy about my hair and cutting it because years of dedication and growing it super long but mamamel definitely found a style to fit me super well. She took her time on my hair and every cut was with love!! The end results were just absolutely breathtaking and made me fee super good about myself and my decision. She is DEF my new hair stylist now ❤️❤️
Mel cut and styled my hair and made me feel so beautiful again!
I’ve been going to Mel for years now!! I have never had a stylist that I trust. Mel had changed that. I now have long and healthy hair instead of short and fried hair. She always attends to my needs even when she doesn’t agree. I am always changing my color and hair style, sometimes I even have her hust suprise me , that’s how much trust I have in her. I love how she invests her soul into her business. Its warm and inviting everytime i see her. Her attitude is always upbeat and funny. I’ve always wanted to feel comfortable when going to get my hair done and I do when I come to her. Trust in MaMaMel!!! Trust you wont be disappointed!!!!+!
