I purchased a GROUPON for a haircut and partial foil at Salon Melini. The GROUPON stipulated that it was valid for Myunghee/Gina and Tabatha only. When I called the number on the GROUPON, it sounded as if I called someone’s home and woke them up. I asked to make an appointment and that I had a GROUPON. Assuming I was talking with Gina, she said that she did not have any appointments available and asked if she could text me Tabatha’s phone number so I could contact her. I felt uncomfortable giving out my number so I told I would call back later. I did some research on the internet and found the main number, which I called on Tuesday, November 26th. I’m assuming it was the receptionist who answered the phone. Again I asked to make an appointment and told the receptionist I had a GROUPON. I asked for the first available appointment was given Wednesday, November 27th with Tabatha at 10am. A few hours later I received a voicemail form Tabatha stating that she was double booked and said the first time she could see me was Wednesday December 4th at 11am. I showed up at yesterday at 10:50 and check in with the receptionist (?) I actually had to wait for five minutes until someone from the back came out front and asked if I had been helped. I am again, assuming this was the receptionist. 20 minutes past by when someone came out from the back and asked if I had an appointment with Tabatha. Apparently Tabatha was on the phone with her, as it was Tabatha’s day off, she has Wednesday’s off. Tabatha told the person she knew nothing of the appointment. I played back the message for the person as Tabatha listened to her own voice. The person then gave me the phone to talk with Tabatha. Tabatha said there must have been some confusion. Really? I had two canceled appointments for Wednesdays, and Tabatha doesn’t even work on Wednesdays, I had her voice mail with her voice scheduling a Wednesday appointment. I sat in the reception area for more than twenty minutes until they figured out that Tabatha was not working that day? I have asked GROUPON for a full refund. I do not recommend Salon Melini, I truly do not know how they have stayed in business this long if this is the way they run their salon and treat their customers.
Thank you so much Ngoc Parker! You make our time together for waxing and facial wonderful. You care about your clients, and go above and beyond to make sure that they are comfortable and have everything they need. You also are respectful of what products they may be using at home and how they are working or not. I just love our facial times!
Ngoc is a waxing pro – I started to see Ngoc last year when I decided to get my first brazilian wax and I have been coming to her ever since. She is not only a wonderful aesthetician, but also a very sweet, caring person. From the moment I met her, she has made me feel comfortable, even during a waxing. Ngoc is experienced, quick and thorough. I highly recommend her.
I Highly Recommend Ngoc Parker! – If you are looking for a licensed aesthetician who is both professional and friendly, look no further. I was very nervous for my first brazilian wax, but within the first two minutes of meeting Ngoc, I knew I had nothing to worry about! Ngoc is very experienced and does excellent, fast work. She is also a wonderful person who cares enough about her clients to get to know them on a personal level! I highly recommend Ngoc to anyone who wants a professional waxing in a comfortable, friendly environment.
Ngoc is great !!!! – The best Brazilian wax ever !!!!! Thank you Ngoc !
Great Haircut/ Flexible Schedule – I have been seeing Laura for a couple years now. I am pretty boring with what I do with my hair, but she does a great job. I never have a bad cut and it always looks great. Laura is very friendly and accomodating. She even puts up with my schedule changes at times. I have been very happy with her work. My wife and Mother in Law have both gone to her and think she is great.
SEE ALEX! – Alex is nothing less than fabulous! I have been going to her ever since high school, and now 6 years later... she is still my hairstylist! She used to work at a salon near my house and when I heard that she moved to a different location, though she is farther from me now, still I did not hesistate or think twice about following her to Salon Melini because her services is just that fabulous! I love going to Alex because she is very passionate about what she does, and very talented. She takes her time with you, gives you what you ask for, or if you don't know what you want or looking for she readily gives advice. She has proven herself time and time again to be up to date with all hair trends may it be style, color, or updo. When the bob cut became super popular, I went to her for this and came out looking fabulous (per the many compliments I recieved). I think this makes her even greater because she can pretty much do EVERYTHING! And excel at everything and be consistent at it at every visit. She also gives you THE BEST head massages when she washes your hair prior to your cut. I highly recommend her because Alex knows her stuff!
Alex is the Best!!! – I had a fantastic haircut and color by Alex at Salon Melini. She was wonderful and talented.
So many people have made nice comments about my hair. My hair is beautiful, flattering, gergeous.
I haven't received that many compliments in a long time.

I am letting others know where to go.
I believe you are the best!!!
Couldn't be better!!! – I haven't be satisfied with my hair in seattle.
But this is absolutely perfect. I had long hair but Alex recommended me cut it short.
