Visit Our Award-Winning Hair Salon in Manchester City Centre

Melissa Salons is proud to create a safe, reassuring space where you can relax and remove your hijab in a private setting.

There’s nothing like that salon-fresh feeling – we want to make sure you leave our salon with beautiful, perfectly styled hair that leaves you feeling fantastic.

We know that finding hair salons that can confidently accommodate clients who wear hijabs can be a challenge, and that’s even before you find a hairdresser you trust with your haircut and colour.

That’s why we have styling stations and backwashes that can be made into a private area.  We do have male stylists working in the salon, but your private styling station – on a different floor – can be screened off to ensure that your privacy requirements are fully met.

Where to find us

You’ll find us in the heart of Manchester city centre in the Northern Quarter, at the top end of Tib Street in Ancoats – a five-minute walk from the main city centre street, Market Street.  Our salon is easily accessible by car or public transport.
