My fiance had called to arrange for an appointment to have my hair color fixed from jet black to blond for our wedding. We called Melt on Newbury Street and were immediately recommended to their Corrective Color Specialist Thomas Anthony. We made an appointment for the following day at 9am.

We arrived for my appointment and I was immediately seen for an in depth consultation regarding what chemicals I had in my hair from previous colors. Thomas Anthony is the most knowledgeable colorist that I have ever met and his unwillingness to jeopardize the health of my hair reassured me that he knew what he was doing.

I have never seen a stylist pay such close attention to his clients, as he did. My service took multiple hours to achieve and in between Thomas Anthony did foils and cuts to his already scheduled clients. He never strayed far from my head and always tended to my needs.

The end result of my corrective color was incredible. There was no trace of black in my hair, no trace of orange/red either. I had gorgeous dark blond hair with plenty of light blond highlights, just exactly what I wanted. My hair was so incredibly shiny and silky for the amount of correction that I had undergone. My haircut was perfection and both my color and cut are still looking as perfect as the day I had them done.

I realize my review is overdue but it was on my list on things to do after the wedding and our relocation. I would highly recommend Thomas Anthony to anyone looking for a perfectionist that will never do anything to damage your hair. Thank you so much for my new look and also for providing me the formulation for the new stylist I must now find overseas.

As an Fashion Editor for several national and international magazines, I often try to fly under the radar when seeking services while out of the city. Several weeks ago I was in Boston for a wedding of a colleague and needed my hair colored and cut before this event. I am that person who is always looking for that best kept secret and was referred by my hotel to Melt. The receptionist was extremely knowledgeable and arranged for me to see their Top stylist, Thomas Anthony.

I arrived for my appointment, was offered a glass of wine and waited for him to finish with his client. I believe that first impressions are very important and his was spot on. Very polished, dressed in a suit he carried my bags to his station and consulted with me until we were in agreement. Having mixed five bowls of color, a stack of foils ready, we began my service. What I found interesting is that he explained every step of the way what he was doing and the reason for it. He was well versed on many topics from mainstream media, the fashion industry to even several Agents that I knew very well, as did he.

After an incredible shampoo and scalp massage, we returned to his chair, I could tell that my color was perfect even though it was wet. He dried my hair and with a complete confidence, he began carving out the shape, hair was flying and before I knew it, his masterful hands were finished. Being totally impressed would be an understatement. Newbury Street is known for talented stylists, what I found in him, was astonishing. Thomas Anthony lived up to the receptionist's recommendation and exceeded all expectation. I will be referring him to all of the magazines for which I write and look forward to seeing him on my next visit to Boston.

This Spa is absolutely the best place I have ever been to!!! I was looking for a place to host a bachelorette party and called quite a few places on Newbury Street to find out prices etc. Most of the places I called were rude and left me on hold and could have cared less what I wanted but when I called Melt, Iris who answered, could not have been more accomodating!! I booked my party and have to tell you that this place far exceeding my expectations!!!! Not only is it decorated in a very warm and relaxing manor the staff were so nice and friendly and couldn't do enough for us!! The services were just the icing on the cake!! I can't wait to go back!!!

I highly recommend Leon! He did not only a fabulous haircut but also gave me amazing blonde highlights. I have gotten so many compliments on my new do! Plus Leon is so personable and so much fun to hang with for a couple hours. You won't regret an appointment with him :)

I have to agree with the last person, how you could say that about this place is beyond me!!! I have lived in the back bay for over 10 years and have been to many spas on Newbury Street and have never experienced customer service like this place in any of them.. If anything, they are over accommodating!! Always asking if you are ok and need anything.. Like the last person wrote, go in and check this place out for yourself!!!!

I just had to write to respond to the prior review... What you had to say was so far from the truth its comical!! I have been going to Melt since it opened, sometimes 1 a week and have never experienced anything like what you said. Compared to everyone else on Newbury Street the customer service here is beyond exceptional!! I advise anyone to ignore that review and try MELT out for yourself, trust me you won't be disappointed!!

MELT is a very stylish, cozy and relaxing salon and spa with great services. Their hairstylist Herol Rosales is amazing!!! I have trusted my hair to Herol for about 4years now and every time he amazes me with some new twist. He really takes his time to give you the best hairstyle ever! I would highly recommend The salon and Herol for everyone!

My neice and I went to Melt Salon & Spa today for haircuts/styles. Our stylist was Herol Rosales, and he spent a great deal of time and attention giving us the best cuts/styles I've ever seen! I'm 52 years old and have very fine, dry hair. To make it even worse, my scalp has multiple cowlicks all over it. I had given up on trying a hair salon many years ago, but my neice thought they would do a great job. From past experience, I had my doubts as to whether or not this place would be any different from any of the other places who have done a mediocre job at best. I could not have been more impressed or happier with the phenomenal cut/style that Herol gave my neice and myself! This man is a creative genius! The salon itself was very lovely and stylish, and all the employees were extremely friendly, helpful, and kind. This is "hand's down" the absolute best experience I have EVER had at a hair salon, and Herol Rosales is a miracle worker. Just to top the whole thing off, the prices are MORE than reasonable. I spent less on this gorgeous cut/style than I have anywhere else! My neice and I are going back in 2 weeks, so Herol can give us some color too!

At Melt Spa, no detail has been neglected. The facility is exquisite and extremely clean. It has a very relaxing atmosphere. The staff are wonderful-- friendly and highly talented. Their menu has something for everyone. It's a great place to treat yourself or someone you love. Prices are very reasonable-- especially for Newbury Street.

This is a very, very nice salon and spa. From the relaxing decor, tranquil environment, to the friendly staff and excellent haircuts - everything about this place says "quality". I'd been searching for a perfect salon in Boston for a while and now I think I've found it! I get my hair cut here by Leon and he always does an excellent job, we have a blast while he works his hair magic, and I come out of the salon feeling like I'm worth a million bucks - which is great because their rates are very reasonable too! Highly recommended.

This spa goes above and beyond in customer service!! From the moment my mom and I walked in we realized we had booked in the right place. We had shopped around and called quite a few places on Newbury Street and this one was the only one that really took the time to explain the services to us and Erica who answered was so friendly and nice!! The staff could not be more accommodating. My mom was very nervous about her massage, it was her first and Francine her Massage Therapist was so great and made her feel so comfortable.
This place is a gem and one of the few that truly make you feel like you get your moneys worth.

Herol is a dream. He has cut and colored my hair twice now and I am blown away by how detailed, considerate, pleasant, knowledgable and methodic he is about hair. You never feel like he's bangin out clients or has the attitude of "another day another dollar" - he genuinely loves his craft of styling. I've seen a few of his other clients come and go during my own appointments, and he makes every person who sits in his chair feel at ease and like a million bucks (men and women). I went in originally after a not so great experience with someone else and he immediately pointed out what was wrong and what needed to be done. I liked his attitude of "lets make you look beautiful" rather than "what would you like today." I need an expert not a Yes Man when it comes to my hair and Herol really took charge when I needed him. My hair has never looked better and more polished. He does a perfect blonde highlight ladies...Bonus: The next day he even called me up and asked me if I was still happy with it. AMAZING. I am sticking with this guy. Go see Herol. I cant say enough about this man!

I have been trusting my hair to the hands of Herol Rosales, stylist at Melt Salon for some 4 years now. I have never been happier with my hair! Herol always listens your concerns and wishes and gives you the best style ever. He always has fresh and new ideas to give you a fun style! I Just LOVE him!

The Salon is also very cozy and relaxing!

I went here with a price point set on how much I could spend when I made the apt. I got my services and my pedi was delightful and my massage was the worst ever. the girl talked through the whole thing and it killed. I understand I should speak up but it was so awkward I just couldn't. When I went to pay they wanted an extra hundred dollars.
I explained the situation and they weren't very nice about it. Eventually I just had to lay it out and they were like "okay give us 40.." which is so unprofessional and completely lame. My services were not out of this world and I was t he only one there- sort of a sign!

I was lucky to meet Herol when I first moved to Boston 8 years ago. The first haircut he gave me was just fantastic, and never once in these years was I disappointed. People often stop me on the street to compliment my hairstyle (and my hair is nothing spectacular itself!) and ask me where I get my hair done. Herol is an amazing stylist - always on top of fashion and new trends but attentive to your personal style and specifics of your hair. He will make you look fresh and modern and simply great!
Melt is also a nice well-managed salon with helpful and friendly personnel and very reasonable prices!

I only let two people touch my hair, my hairstylist in my home country, and Herol. All my experiences with Herol have been Amazing! He is a great stylist, listens very carefully to your specifics, and cuts a man's haircut without using the electric machine. The best part is that he always takes time for every single detail!

With regards to Melt, the salon is great. Nice decor, a cozy environment, well managed, and educated and polite personnel. I always have a great time there

Belma is a new message therapist at MELT and she is incredible! I'm from N.J. and I get messages on a regular and I've never experienced something like that before! To Belma it's alllll about yooouu.. Where are you in pain? is this to soft? would you like me to use more pressure? I've had almost every service done at MELT Except for my hair but I hear Harol is amazing as well.. All of the employees including Angela ( the receptionist) are very friendly. I got that message done and i honestly felt drunk when i was done. Then they put me in this cute little couch where I was waiting to get a pedicure Angela hands me a glass of champagne. I'm like "Who is better than me right now"?!?!?! I highly suggest you give it a shot.. Do not settle for anyone but Belma!!!

I have been following Herol for years now, and he never stops amazing me. I just need to sit in his chair and let him do his thing. Not only do I leave with a great cut, but my hair grows out beautifully. Last time I went to Melt, I was told that my hair looked like it had just been cut. I will continue to follow Herol no matter where he is. But, the atmosphere at Melt is extremely inviting and peaceful. Hopefully, Herol Rosales has found a home.

From the moment you enter Melt Salon & Spa, you are in a completely relaxed environment. Then of course, you meet Herol, who is ever so attentive to making you very comfortable and pampers you. He genuinely takes a deep interest in discussing what you are looking for and offers suggestions to make change...amazing change. This is the best haircut/style and color I have ever received in all my years. Herol is very professional and has a keen sense of style and trend. What more can I say. Go and find out for yourself.

Pros: Herol is the best stylist and colorist!

I've been going to MELT since the summer and my hair has benefitted tremendously! Herol Rosales, MELT's primary colorist, is clearly the best hair professional I've ever worked with. My hair is thick, very very naturally curly (and unruly), very long, porous, and 90% gray. Although my natural color is dark brown, I've chosen to color it in strong reddish tones, adding even more challenge to the mix. Most don't know how to deal with this sort of hair, let alone color it correctly. Herol clearly has control of my hair, and the color looks the best it has in years. I must also add that the staff at MELT makes me feel like a queen whenever I'm there, and that sort of kindness and attentiveness is very much appreciated! Thanks MELT and Herol!

I went to Melt last week to treat myself to a day of relaxation and pampering. From the minute I called and spoke to Angela I felt such a sense of kindness and warmth. She spent at least 10 minutes telling me all about the services they offer and put together my day. I cannot say enough about this place, they are so attentive towards you and make you feel more like a friend than a client!! The services were great and I left feeling so relaxed!! This is definetly a place to check out!!

My neice and I went to Melt Salon & Spa today (Wednesday 11/11/09), and we were amazed at the fabulous haircuts/styles we were given by Herol Rosales! My neice is 30 years old and has thick beautiful hair. He did a masterful job on her hair. I am 52 years old and have some of the most difficult (super-fine, very dry, cowlicks all over my scalp) hair imaginable! I cannot believe what a miracle Herol performed on my hair. I've NEVER been so happy after a haircut/style in my whole life! He spent an excessive amount of time and effort and did a phenomenal job on each of us. It's actually hard to believe that my horrible hair can look this fantastic! Also, everyone at Melt Salon was extremely friendly and kind. I'm a very shy person, but as soon as we walked into this very stylish and fashionable salon, my neice and I were treated as if they'd known us for years. I have never felt so very welcome and comfortable at any salon! I just can't think of enough to say about this place. And...to top it off, the prices are beyond reasonable!! Even though I paid for myself and my neice, and left a fairly good tip, I was shocked to find it cost about half of what I expected to pay!! We were both so excited with the incredible results when Herol was finished, that we each made appointments in another two weeks for color. Honestly, for the first time in my life, my hair looks beautiful and I feel terrific! I am now a forever fan of Melt Salon & Spa. Also, I'm in awe of the artistic and creative genius of Herol Rosales!!

My neice and I went to Melt Salon & Spa today (Wednesday 11/11/09), and we were amazed at the fabulous haircuts/styles we were given by Herol Rosales! My neice is 30 years old and has thick beautiful hair. He did a masterful job on her hair. I am 52 years old and have some of the most difficult (super-fine, very dry, cowlicks all over my scalp) hair imaginable! I cannot believe what a miracle Herol performed on my hair. I've NEVER been so happy after a haircut/style in my whole life! He spent an excessive amount of time and effort and did a phenomenal job on each of us. It's actually hard to believe that my horrible hair can look this fantastic! Also, everyone at Melt Salon was extremely friendly and kind. I'm a very shy person, but as soon as we walked into this very stylish and fashionable salon, my neice and I were treated as if they'd known us for years. I have never felt so very welcome and comfortable at any salon! I just can't think of enough to say about this place. And...to top it off, the prices are beyond reasonable!! Even though I paid for myself and my neice, and left a fairly good tip, I was shocked to find it cost about half of what I expected to pay!! We were both so excited with the incredible results when Herol was finished, that we each made appointments in another two weeks for color. Honestly, for the first time in my life, my hair looks beautiful and I feel terrific! I am now a forever fan of Melt Salon & Spa.

Pros: Best haircut/style of my entire life!

Tried Melt after I read the Stuff beauty awards because they won best specialty pedicure. It was much different from the average walk-in experience. Loved the service, Kristie did a great job. It was more like having a foot/leg massage than just having your toes done. She used a custom made scrub that left my feet so soft..

I received a Gift Certificate for my birthday from my girlfriends to this place and can't say enough about how great it is. The staff are so attentive and can't do enough for you. I had a facial from Katie and a pedicure from Lucelli which was the best I have ever had!!! I met the owner who made sure to come over and see if I needed anything and to introduce herself to me which I thought was very nice. I have been to a few places on Newbury Street, but this by far is the best. I can't wait to go back!!

I've gone to Melt for Luzerne facials in the past, and I've always loved the results. So when I was booking pre-wedding beauty appointments for my recent wedding, I naturally called Melt to book a facial for two days before the big day. They recommended a Hydrafacial for me--they promised that it's safe for all skin types (mine is sensitive) and that I would be glowy for a week afterward. That certainly wasn't the outcome I got. My skin was extremely red, and peeling and flaking all over the bottom half of my face and didn't clear up until the MIDDLE OF MY HONEYMOON. $200 wasted to ruin my skin for my wedding! I wanted to cry every time I looked in the mirror. And when I called after to tell them the problem, the manager's response was "Oh really? Sorry about that." In the past I would have recommended this spa in a heartbeat--now you couldn't pay me to go back.

I am not one to write reviews but I went to MELT yesterday and I just had to write to say that I have never been anywhere that made me feel so welcome. From the moment you walk in the door you are treated like royalty. The setting is so peaceful and the place is decorated with such warmth. I would highly recommend this place to anyone that is looking for somewhere different to go to. I should mention that I found them through the groupon promotion and will now be a client for life.

I have been a Boston resident for over 10 years and have visited the majority of salons/spa's on Newbury Street. This place is one of a kind!! From the moment you walk in their door you are treated really special. They is nothing the girls at the front won't do for you. Angela and Michelle at the desk was so friendly and kind. My treatments began with a massage followed by a facial both were first class!! I would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a place to go where the people treat you like your really someone special...

This place is so great!!! The staff made me feel so welcome and relaxed, the minute I walked in the door I felt like a celebrity!! I had 4 services planned, 2 of which were with Oumie, she is by far the waxing queen!!! My facial with Tricia was not only relaxing but a learning experience she explained everything she was doing and gave me some tips on skincare at home. I really should be thanking Group On, because without them I never would have found this place and I now will be a frequent visitor.

I decided to purchase a Goupon to melt and was apprehensive because I don't usually visit spa's but I really couldn't give up the opportunity. I went in for a pedicure, manicure, foils and a hair cut and all I can say is WOW!!! They leave no detail behind. As soon as I walked in I was greeted by Michele who was such a sweetheart and she offered me wine and champagne....which I could not refuse. =)
The spa is beautiful and extremely clean. I had my manicure and pedicure with Luceli and she was wonderful....we were chatting and it was so nice to talk to the staff who were also very attentive. I also met the owner Melanie who was the most wonderful woman I have ever met. They make you feel so comfortable like you've known them for years. I saw Laura for my hair and she is AMAZING!!! As soon as I walked out I had so many compliments from my friends and even random people. She was sooooooo nice and explained in detail everything she was doing. I recommend going to see her because you will LOVE your hair when you leave.

I will definitely will be a regular at melt from now on. I am glad I found this place and am even surprised that I made a few friends there. They now have a customer for life. =)

First can I say that this spa is a small shoebox, not only is it small but made with tissue paper since you can hear everything through the walls. I was not greeted properly, and when they found that I was a groupon client I was treated like a step child. They should not participate in those promotions when they clearly don't agree with them. Worst experience ever.

made an appt at melt spa after a gf of mine referred me, i had high expectations of this place, but learned quickly they pick and choose who to be nice to. i'm sure they were not like this in the beginning but now they are established and you can tell. from turning down bookings to just ignoring you when you walk in. i now know i made a mistake by coming here, i was part of a groupon promo, and was treated second hand. if they dont want groupon clients then they shouldnt do them as promos! will not return here. from my massage not being on time to being able to hear EVERYTHING through the thin walls to the lack of genuine service.

have been a frequent client at melt and was disappointed when i wrote an email to the staff and the management about how "amazing" their place was and I NEVER GOT A RESPONSE FROM THE OWNER/MGMT, not even a quick thank you for coming here.
With this being said, they are quick to take your money for services but can't follow up on positive and praising emails...hmm I believe their image has gotten to their heads.

I decided to indulge and take advantage of Spa Week where the massages are $50. I can't say enough about this place. The staff are so attentive and the place is so welcoming. They make you feel so special!! My massage with Sarah was first class and she was so sweet!!! The staff can't do enough for you and the place is immaculate!!
If your looking for something different, this is the place to go.. I will definitely be back to check out their other services!!

I have been to MELT several times and have always been impressed. It is my #1 spa recommendation to friends. On my recent visit, I had just a manicure and pedicure and was unhappy with the results. My nails were shaped poorly (many filed on a diagonal), and nail polish was pooled around my cuticles. It chipped within 24 hours. I hope this was a one time stumble in the high quality service I have received on my previous visits. I'll give it one more chance, but I am now less likely to recommend MELT to friends. Please don't let the quality slip now that you are more established!

I had a massage at Melt which I enjoyed. The actual massage treatment itself was great. My biggest complaint though was that the walls were so thin that you could ever everything going on throughout the building. I was trying to relax but I had a hard time blocking out women laughing and talking loudly in the next room. The crazy thing is, I am pretty sure that it was just employees of the spa talking to each other. Isn't this something that the manager of the spa should control? Spas are supposed to be peaceful, right? I expect more from an expensive Newbury Street spa. The masseuse was great though. The noise wasn't her fault.

On a similar note, when I read these other reviews, i feel like they were all posted by spa employees. I mean they are just so over the top. And the only con is "no parking"? Give me a break. If anyone is looking for real reviews of the spa, I recommen you check out yelp's website for more accurate reviews.

Words cannot say enough about this place. From the moment you walk in the front door you feel like a true celebrity. The staff is so attentive and upbeat and can't do enough for you. There are so many places to choose from on Newbury Street but I will have to tell you this place far exceeds any place I have ever been to and trust me I've tried them all!!! A nice touch was that the owner was there to meet and greet you when you arrive (something missing in so many spas!!!) If you haven't checked this place out, then you are truly missing out on a wonderful experience. The one thing wrong with this place is that there isn't more of them!!!!!

I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that my birthday gift from my sweetie was a full day of spa services. It's been FIVE years since I last visited a spa and was tickled to discover all that MelT had in store for me. I was greeted at the door by Melanie (the owner) and delighted to find out that they use natural products (I am a bit on the "organic" side).

Once the "surprise" factor wore off a bit (I had NO idea where we were headed off to when we got into the car), I was truly impressed by the cleaniness & decor of the salon. Given that it was 9am in the morning, I thought I would have to wait! NO WAY!!!! It felt like the whole staff was waiting for ME! Oumie had the pedicure seat all ready for my arrival and she was so warm & friendly! But wait, the wonderful service didn't stop there! I was offered a mimosa and freshly-baked muffins. Oh my!

So, after my delicious drink and fantastic pedicure, I was then gently ushered into the manicure room. Wonders never cease! The whole staff were genuinely welcoming and warm. They saw that my sweetie had booked several services for my birthday (including a gourmet LUNCH) and I couldn't have been happier! This was the best birthday gift ever!!!!! I literally was there for more than 3 hours!!!!!

What makes MelT different than all the other salons on Newbury Street is their attention to detail! The inspirational and comforting writings on the walls were a nice touch. As soon as you walk in the door, you know you are in for true pampering. The best part was given that I had been there all day and my lunch was delayed, they offered lunch for my sweetie TOO! So, we were able to dine together after my last service (custom massage). I have to highly recommend this Spa to anyone who wants a genuine place to pamper themselves. Trust me, the prices are definitely worth it and the location couldn't be better! Access to the subway is quite nice! I was so impressed, I went back the next week!

From start to finish, the service at MELT is impeccable. I ahve been trying to get a particular color of highlight for years and have never been satisfied with what I look like when I go home. When I went to Yasmin, MELT's Master Colorist and Stylist, I gave up on trying to attain my idealized olor and just told her to do what she thought would look good on me...lo and behold it was EXACTLY what I have been trying to get for YEARS. I went six months without having to get it colored or cut again and after six months went back only to be just as satisfied as I was the first time around. I can't recommend Yasmin services any more highly...for everyday hair or special occasion...she even does couture individualized hair extensions! A must visit...

The PERFECT newbury st salon and spa!! The kind and upbeat staff make you feel welcome the minute you walk in the door! With Champagne and chocolate covered strawberrys offered to us the minute we walked in I knew this spa was exactly what I was looking for. I came here with my mother for a mothers day treat and she was treated like royalty! We had her hair done by Yasmin and she gave her a full blown hair makeover -- she walked out of there like a new woman -- looking at least 10 years younger! You can't pass up the talent of Yasmin and the adorable spa of MELT, a true treasure in Boston!!

As anyone who knows Newbury St. well, knows there are a lot of salons ans spas to choose from; but one that stood out for me about eight months ago, and still shines, is MELT Salon and Spa. Located on the second floor of one of Newbury's charming brownstones, from the moment you walk in the door and are greeted by the always pleasant and accommodating manager Sheila (note: she is also a stellar makeup artist), you feel as if you are miles away from the bustling streets and any stress that city life brings. My initial visit to Melt was to see hair stylist Yasmin, who I have been a follower of for years. Yasmin is about as talented as they come: innovative, but classic, always precise and a color whiz! I have been known to bounce back and forth between various hair shades of chocolate browns, to caramel and butter highlights, to adding a few pink extensions to vibrant reds all over and every time gets the tones right, and I leave the salon with fabulous hair. She is a true artist, and just gets it. Although the majority of my visits to Melt are spent happily in Yasmin's chair, I would recommend ANY service Melt has to offer, as owner Mel T. has put her heart and soul in creating a wonderful spa with top-notch staff just as passionate as she is, that use some of the best product lines on the market...and you will love the complimentary glass of champagne, or a warm, soothing beverage that fits the overall mood of this outstanding spa and salon.

This place is above and beyond any other spa I've been to. You are treated like a celebrity from the second you walk through the door. They offer so many different types of services. I had the hot stone massage and it was incredible. I will be going back to melt all the time.

I just have to write and say what a lovely experience I had at this salon. From the moment you walk through the doors the staff make you feel like a VIP!! I had a spa day with 8 of my girlfriends and can honestly say this the the only place in Boston to go if you want the whole package. I can't wait to go back!!! The staff never make you feel rushed and are always making sure you have what you need. The owner of the salon made it a point to introduce herself to everyone and thank them for coming which I thought was classy.
MELT definetly has my vote for BEST OF BOSTON!!!

Pros: atmoshere, customer service, spa packages

Cons: parking, its newbury st.
