Best of Boston

2011 Best Hair Salon, South

Mellie Hair Design

We love a salon with cushy sofas and lemon water, but those details mean nothing if the stylists aren’t hair-care experts. Most Mellie employees have 10-plus years of experience — but more important, we left feeling fab after a stylist turned our awkward layers into a look we couldn’t wait to debut.
