We “heard” very good things about the experience @ Quincy’s Leonardo’s hair salon with emphasis on the quality of the experience, professional and detail oriented, listeners and attentive, yet friendly and homey atmosphere, talent and confidence throughout, and the salon itself being clean and with nice decor.

As always, it’s impossible to make 100% of clients 100% happy, but even then, like all great professionals, in the rare cases when things don’t turn out perfect, they seem to be able to handle the situation reasonably and in the best possible way.

Greater Boston and New England Hair Salons: 02186: Best Hair Salon in Milton, MA

There aren’t many hair salons in Milton, Massachusetts, after all, it’s a small town with around 27,000 residents, many very affluent with beautiful homes, regularly considered one of the best towns to live in, but not as much commercial activity as nearby towns.

So the choice of hair salons is relatively limited, yet it’s quite clear which one we would recommend:

Mellie Hair Design

Best hair salon in Milton

Mellie Hair Design

 

Mellie’s hair salon is a proud recipient of the prestigious “Best of the Boston”award (by Boston Magazine) and won “Best in Milton” (by The Milton Times) for 8 consecutive years from 2007 to 2014. Now on BeDryBar!

Many local and national celebrities have had their hair color and hair cut done at Mellie’s, including famous personalities from the Boston news and Hollywood.

Mellie’s is proud to offer “hair” only services and focus on a hair salon business rather than run a Spa at the same time. Full of positive energy, it’s a physically small and cozy salon anyway…

The receptionists appear to have the welcoming attitude required for the role and organizational skills to provide a good service.

Apparently, staff are highly trained and talented, professional and polite, and the atmosphere is relaxed and informal, a comfortable hair salon to have your cut, color and style done. Mellie’s idea was to bring the high-end feeling of a typical Newbury St hair salon, to a non-intimidating and inviting shop in the ‘burbs.

Advanced education for colorists and stylists appears to be high on the list of priorities of Mellie’s hair salon and that appears to allow the salon to rival the quality of services of the famous Newbury St hair salons, yet in a suburb, with easier parking!

Services offered appear to be those of a typical full-service hair salon, cut, color, blow dry, brazilian blow out, bridal and updos, razor cuts, treatments, hair extensions, deep conditioning and more.

Finally, prices appear to be affordable for the quality of work offered, in comparison to Newbury St salons, which are usually very pricey. So don’t go to Mellie’s to save, go for the quality.


Melanie Martinous (“Mellie”), is the owner. She successfully runs Mellie’s Hair Salon Milton, Ma and works as a stylist, on the back of extensive training and education, with experience at affluent hair salons and alongside people who are well known in the business. Fulfilling her lifelong dream of owning and running her own salon, while offering her expertise directly to her clients, she also appears to know how to assign clients to the right stylist and make most clients satisfied and loyal.

Precision razor cutting and modern updos appear to be her forte and unmatched skills.

Greater Boston and New England Hair Salons: 02492: Best Hair Salon in Needham, MA

For a relatively small town in the Boston area, the choice of hair salons is not too limited, and it’s quite clear which one we would suggest:

AVANTE Hair Salon

Best hair salon in Milton

Avante Hair Salon, Needham, Massachusetts

 

AVANTE Hair Salon is an award winning (#1 Hair Salon in Needham) and well established hair salon that has been operating for almost two decades right in Needham Center. Now it’s on BeDryBar!

It’s a full service hair salon focused on hair services only, without the now ubiquitous Spa services, but apparently with an environment similar to a Beauty Spa; relaxing and peaceful, quite different from the typical hyperactive hair salon where sometimes too much goes on to provide an enjoyable experience. At Avante, you typically don’t get rushed through the process.

To add to the comfortable experience that you can expect and unlike many other salons, there isn’t aggressive upselling and clients are allowed to have their hair done exactly the way they planned for and wanted before entering the salon.

The quality of the service is very high and the skill-set of AVANTE’s hair stylists is very eclectic and flexible, being therefore able to cater to clients of all ages.

The reception is friendly and professional and getting an appointment appears to be trouble-free.

AVANTE Hair Salon offers plenty of parking, which is important for so many, even with a central location within Needham, thanks to a large parking lot behind the building.

They seem to offer the typical services of a full-service hair salon; hair cut, color, blow dry, brazilian blow out, bridal and updos, razor cuts, treatments, hair extensions, deep conditioning, smoothing, straightening and more.

Finally, prices appear to be on the higher side, but for the quality of the work offered, for the salon experience, for the convenience of the free parking lot and hassle-free booking, it’s a good deal and worth the money.

New England and Greater Boston's best hair salons and hair stylists: Boston’s Best

best-hair-stylists-bedrybar-logo-square-292x292Especially from a blow dry perspective, we try to pinpoint the Best of Hair Salons and Hair Stylists in the Greater Boston area by town and city, basing our assessment on the feedback that we get from our visitors and supporters, not only of this website, but also of the various accounts and pages on the major social media networks, like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+.

We also evaluate all apparently credible sources of feedback and comments. Where possible, we also use direct experience.

We have a specific section for Hair Salons and another for Hair Stylists.

Both have a page with a simple list of names and a link to a more informative guide to our Best Boston Hair Salons by municipality and to our Best Boston Hair Stylists by hair salon.

Towns, salons and stylists are added and updated regularly, yet gradually, based on random criteria and also upon the reasonable suggestions of BeDryBar supporters and contributors.

The European Blow Dry Technique and Training Program: European Blow Dry

Denise Rossi's Swirl on AquaThe European Blow Dry is a technique and a training program, both designed and developed by master hair stylist Denise Rossi, upon returning from an over 5 year long professional and educational stay in Europe, mostly in Tuscany, Italy, but also in London, UK.

She got inspired by the priority that Europeans give to blow drys and learned the best techniques to apply to every aspect and step of a perfect blow dry that lasts longer and requires less time to perform.

She fine tuned the technique implementing it in some of the most affluent salons of Boston and Greater Boston and finally designed a training program for which she was recruited as director of all training by Bestyled of Chestnut Hill, later also Wellesley and Lynn, and the Tennessee location as well, teaching her technique to all staff of all locations.

She now offers her own services to salons and stylists all over New England and beyond, including regular training trips to Tennessee, where she still trains at Frank Gambuzza’s BeStyled Knoxville and now also Salon Visage.

Her mission is to spread the recognition of the European Blow Dry as the technique to use for blow drys to provide the best service to clients while the most efficient for the business; it’s faster, longer lasting and the finish is of very high quality, allowing many clients to be treated to a beautiful blow dry in the same amount of time, making them wanting to come back for more and more, especially when they find out how good it feels when they leave the salon and how long it lasts while getting the compliments that everybody adores.

As owner of the European Blow Dry project, she supports BeDryBar and its own project of providing the information about blow drying which is a fast growing niche within an always dynamic hair beauty industry, especially in the Boston and New England area of the United States.

As the main sponsor, the European Blow Dry provides and makes available information, images and more; included is information about those in the industry who are certified as trained hair stylists or salons who employ trained stylists in her signature blow drying technique.
