Important Announcement From Melissa

To my Family, Friends and Clients whom have become both,

As a seasoned stylist and salon owner, I often reflect back on years spent behind the chair. How styles change, boomerang back and the story each snip of hair and color tells about what phase my client was entering or escaping from. How it impacts them more than just a new look, but how they are inadvertently creating a timeline of their life. Their story. How they will reflect back at a picture and remember so effortlessly what they were doing or feeling at that moment. And then there are some styles that are just timeless. They fit in any era or evolution of self; consistent and always able to fall back on. Reliable, we know exactly how to work it and make it look our best.

When I step away from the chair at the end of the day, as the stylist creating these timelines for others, I too have a timeline, of transition, change and growth. What worked best, what was my “timeless?” And that has how I have always felt about the team at 2 Haven Street.

Gary took me in 15 years ago, very green and created an environment for me to grow, learn, fall and develop wings to venture on my own. But most importantly all while allowing me to be a mother first. I am forever grateful for his guidance and commitment.

It is of great and dignified honor to announce my return home. Where it all started!!! As of November 1st Bisou by Melissa will be coming back to Reading, Ma.

Salon fringe will always be the core of our timeline, where Gary, Marea, Trina, Sara and I started. Bisou by melissa is excited to make our legacy proud. Here’s to new beginnings in a place that will never be forgotten. Here is to continuing our timeline and growth at 2 Haven Street.

All my love,

Bisou by Melissa is an official drop-off location for the Mrs. Claus Project through December 12

Bisou by Melissa is an official drop off for the wonderful Mrs. Claus Project! The drop-off deadline is December 12th. If anyone would like to help and sponsor a mom that’s left or make a small donation, please contact Jessica at or come drop your items here at the shop!

About the Mrs. Claus Project:
The Mrs. Claus started when a mom, Jessica, and her now grown girl came up with the mighty idea to pay it forward to some others like them. How incredible is it to be reminded just how special you are with a gift during the holidays?

The Mrs. Claus Project is aimed at brightening the holidays of young moms with an essential and thoughtful gift for the holidays, from none other than Mrs. Claus herself. This three woman team, Jessica, Lexi and Cassie, provided 5 moms with personalized gifts the first year. The second year, with the help of donations, 31 moms, the third year over 50 moms, and this year they aim to surpass that number. Learn more here.

A Portion of All October Sales will be Donated to the Breast Cancer Foundation

Help us give back!

Breast cancer is something that has affected many of our clients, and is something personal to us at Bisou by Melissa. As some of you know, Melissa’s mother is a two time breast cancer survivor, and we have many clients who are survivors as well. We want to honor those fighting, those who have won the battle, and most importantly, those who have lost the battle. In their memory and honor, we would like to donate to a cause close to our hearts. During the month of October, a portion of all sales will be donated to the Breast Cancer Foundation. Thank you for your support throughout the year, and especially during this month!
