Hairdresser on the Island for some twenty years, Mélinda Leoni chose the Pointe Nord neighbourhood to establish 5e Avenue, her new hair salon.
“The business owners in the community informed me of the need for a hair salon in Pointe Nord. I was charmed by the neighborhood; the atmosphere is very nice and the residents are exceptionally kind! I jumped at the opportunity, and I am delighted I did: I am well settled and I feel very welcomed.
Mélinda received her hairdressing training in Europe. However, while vacationing in Montreal, she liked the city so much that she decided to settle down and develop her career in that part of the world. Today, she is a hair color specialist and does not skimp on the quality of her products, namely she uses Kérastase and L’Oréal.
“My clientele has been loyal through all these years. I am always on the lookout for new techniques, and I regularly improve my skills by taking training courses in order to offer the best care while adapting to current trends.
A hair salon in full development
Open since November, 5e Avenue is in full development and various services are already offered: hair cuts, highlights, blow-dry, manicure and pedicure. Men and women will find something to their liking, as all are welcome.
Mélinda has hired a colorist, a manicure-pedicure specialist and plans to add another hairdresser in the near future to meet the growing demand. This addition will allow her to offer her services 7 days a week.
If you are in the area, come by and say hello to Mélinda whose smile and dynamism are contagious. The salon is located at 113, chemin de la Pointe Nord.
