Melanie Fields was an exotic dancer who left the world of stripping to become her own boss in the world of beauty.
It’s a common belief that black does not crack and black women ‘age fine like wine’. And when observing women such as Angela Bassett, Cicely Tyson, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Naomi Campbell, and Halle Berry, that may be all well and true. But there are some of us who need that time has not been as kind to and need a little cosmetic help along the way. That’s where Melanie Fields comes in.
The 32-year-old, Trinidadian, Miami native has used her former A-list contacts in the club, her passion for the beauty industry and her hustler mentality to open up Flawless Icon. The medical-spa facility in Miami specializes in skin care treatments specifically for women of color.
Fields received her laser and electrology certification while stripping and says it was not easy juggling the two. But she was determined to get out of the game and make a better life for herself.
“I decided to walk away with $50K in the bank. I lived a particular lifestyle, and I’m living by myself and have a child, and I’m paying rent, and I made the decision to walk away,” Fields shared with Madam Noire in an April interview. “I prayed to God, ‘Lord, just send me my clients.”
And her prayer worked! Today, Fields is a licensed laser specialist, certified medical & clinical electrologist, certified clinical medical assistant, licensed esthetician and the CEO of one of the top med-spas in Miami. Flawless Icon is quickly growing into a franchise, with Queen of Miami and rapper, Trina herself, as one of the prospective franchise owners.
Fields said she added services to the 5,000 square foot, med-spa that she underwent herself to maintain her body while stripping. Those services include Botox, butt and cellulite treatments, skin tightening and laser treatments. Expecting mothers are welcome, prenatal massages are offered. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder and women who want these services should get them for themselves and not others. Also being beautiful starts within ourselves and being happy with that person in the mirror.
“When we are not happy with ourselves, we look angry, mad or sad,” she tells her clients on her website. “I want all women and men to be happy and feel beautiful, at all stages of their lives, when young, after pregnancies, during breaks, why not?”
When Fields is not tending to her clients, she is offering beauty and business tips on social media, as well as sharing client testimonials on social media.

Client Testimony. Laser Hair Removal X Glut Shot w/VitC. Upper Lip Hair ? unwanted facial Hair ? INGROWNS ? Suffering from PCOS?? Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels. The ovaries may develop numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) and fail to regularly release eggs. The exact cause of PCOS is unknown. Early diagnosis and treatment along with weight loss may reduce the risk of long-term complications such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Symptoms. Irregular periods. Infrequent, irregular or prolonged menstrual cycles are the most common sign of PCOS. Excess androgen. Elevated levels of male hormone may result in physical signs, such as excess facial and body hair (hirsutism), and occasionally severe acne and male-pattern baldness. Polycystic ovaries. Causes The exact cause of PCOS isn’t known. Factors that might play a role include: Excess insulin. Insulin is the hormone produced in the pancreas that allows cells to use sugar, your body’s primary energy supply. If your cells become resistant to the action of insulin, then your blood sugar levels can rise and your body might produce more insulin. Excess insulin might increase androgen production, causing difficulty with ovulation. Low-grade inflammation. This term is used to describe white blood cells’ production of substances to fight infection. Research has shown that women with PCOS have a type of low-grade inflammation that stimulates polycystic ovaries to produce androgens, which can lead to heart and blood vessel problems. Heredity. Research suggests that certain genes might be linked to PCOS. Excess androgen. The ovaries produce abnormally high levels of androgen, resulting in hirsutism and acne.
