Melissa is one of the lucky few who knew what she wanted to do from a very early age. As a little girl, she wanted to express her creativity in a really personal way – she wanted to connect with others & enhance their physical appearances. She understood more confidence shown to the world allows inner beauty to radiate. Needless to say her work in the nail salon and eyebrows and lashes here at McAllister are her passion.
In our nail salon, Melissa immediately differentiated herself from others nail techs at other salons…every manicure is immaculate, every pedicure is perfection. She is able to work with a wide variety of media…from traditional nail polishes to gel polish from the likes of OPI, Gelish! & Shellac and from acrylic powder dips from SNS & OPI to traditional hard / sculpted gel nails. Trust your hands & feet to Melissa just once and you’ll never go anywhere else.
If nails are Melissa’s specialty, eyelashes and eyebrows are her passion. Whether it’s eyebrow microblading or henna brow tattoos, she excels at sculpting your desired brow line. She’s an absolute perfectionist so every single line is carefully contemplated and perfectly placed. She also loves to extend and fill in lashes using individual lash extensions.
So what’s next for Melissa? We hear she’s contemplating a facial specialist’s license and plans to broaden her canvas to create beauty. Whatever is next, you might want to pre-book your next appointment (or all of them for the next decade!) because her passion & personality are creating quite the following for her here at McAllister!
More than a decade ago, William McAllister hatched an idea to disrupt the beauty salon industry in Miami Beach. He contemplated what salons once were in years gone by. He yearned to recapture their unique contributions to both personal beauty & community. In the past 10 years, he’s forever changed the industry, and according to him, he’s just getting started! He draws from a unique background – encompassing everything from neurophysiology, business to firefighting- and built South Beach’s busiest & most reviewed beauty concept in South Florida.
