The Salon Experience

As the salon is located on Mel’s private property this creates a very private and relaxing setting. Your appointment can generally involve just you and Mel, so very personal and as quiet or chatty as you wish it to be. On occasion there may be one other client with their colour/perm or treatments or sat in the salon. Again this can be as quiet or chatty as you wish it to be.

The appointments are based on your personal likes and dislikes and Mel will do her best to accommodate them.
If we’re lucky enough to have good weather clients are more than welcome to sit outside, bring your lunch or snacks if you need to.

Mel wants your salon experience to be a relaxed and enjoyable one, as well as getting the best hairdo ever!
