Beautiful studio, pleasant atmosphere, skilled stylists – Today was my first visit to Mina's, and I was not disappointed. The atmosphere is so open, light and friendly. It was comforting just to walk through the door. Not only were the stylists pleasant, but they were also very skilled. Lane fixes my hair and does an excellent job, but I also saw other clients walking away beautiful and happy! This is definitely the place to be!
Thanks for your comments on the salon environment, we just remodeled last year and glad that you liked the new look. We know as customers you have many choices and we try to do everything in our ability to make your experience at Mina's Studio a positive one! Thanks also for the good words on Lane and the happy clients! Lane is a great asset and its amazing what he can do with hair. He was a big part of our 2012 Carolina Inn Bridal Fair where he did beautiful hair for the models walking the runway and we've only heard positive things about his work with customers at the salon. We can't wait to see you again!
Lane is THE Best Hair Stylist EVER!!! – I searched for years for my stylist soul mate, which I found several years ago at another salon in Chapel Hill. I was over the moon! But I was devastated when she relocated to New York and I found myself back at the drawing board. After trying a couple different stylists at different salons, I happened upon a new stylist that had just moved here from Baltimore. How ecstatic I was to discover love for the second time!
Lane is the second stylist who has been given carte blanche with my hair, about which I am very picky. His forward-thinking coloring and cutting techniques always put me ahead of trend in this area. I always get compliments on my color and hair style. All of my friends have actually left their stylists and are loyal patrons of Lane! I trust him immensely with my hair and hope he is here to stay!!
That's great to hear - we all in the salon business strive to be our customer's salon soul mate and it really makes our day to hear about it when it happens. Lane is very talented and its remarkable how quickly he has built up clientelle since starting with us not long ago. That is a testament to how skilled he is and how much he cares about his clients. We'll continue to push ourselves to keep on top of trends and deliver the best customer service that we know you deserve. Look forward to seeing you soon Amy!
Worst Experience Ever! – Worst experience in a salon ever!!!!! I went to Mina's because I needed a change from my old stylist and I could not believe what happened while I was there. First of all they gave me there newest stylist, I cannot remember his name but I went in for highlights and a cut. When I sat down I felt like he did not listen to me at all about the colors or the way I wanted my haircut. But like I said I wanted a change and after all he is supposed to be the professional! So as he is doing my hair he is just rambling on and on about the salon he just came from in Raleigh and how bad he hated the owner and then also about all the drugs he used to do and how he is now in AA. Well that is great but save it. I went there despite some mixed reviews but never expected to get this kind of service. After washing my hair I looked in the mirror and I was horrified! The color was an orange-red when I stated in the beginning that I wanted nice blonde highlights, so we had to go in and put more color on to get to that color (which I had to ... Show full review
We're always sorry to hear about a bad review and we strive to provide the best service in the area. That said, with this particular reviewer it's an interesting "coincidence" that the only other "review" was the salon that Lane came from (4 stars advertisement rather than review). We have yet to hear any complaints about Lane and have never heard any of the comments you mentioned from other staff, clients or owners that work near him. If this is a real reviewer please contact us to talk about it (what date/time) as this would be something we would want to rectify. If this is something else please keep comments professional.
Kati does the BEST waxing in the area – Kati is the only one to trust for your waxing. Great job and remarkably pain free, even in those sensitive areas. Thank you, Kati!

All I can say is Jenny – YOU ARE AMAZING!!

Thanks, Jenny is a talented and caring esthetician and she really really does some of the best facials in the area. You'll leave relaxed and your skin will thank you! We can't wait to see you again too!
Waxing with Kati – I have been going to Kati for Brazilian waxes for months now. She does, by far, the best job I have ever had. The waxing is always quick, clean, and as least painful as possible. I will not go anywhere else to have this service done. I highly recommend trying Kati!
WAX with Molly! – I have been seeing Molly for over a year for brow shapings. She does an AMAZING job! You will be very pleased with her work! She shapes and thins your brows without thinning too much. I went somewhere else for a few months because of being out of town and I could not wait to come back to Molly!
Thanks for taking the time to let us know about your positive brow shaping service experience with Molly. Molly's attention to detail in all of her facials, waxing (including bikini wax and brow shaping) and other skin services sets her apart from other salons in the Chapel Hill, Raleigh and Durham areas and we're glad you saw the difference and we welcome you back! Look forward to seeing you again!
Best studio for all of your bridal needs! – As some of you know when you get married everything happens in tornado fashion and when it is the big day getting ready is no exception!
I had heard many good things about the stylist at Mina's and received nothing less than the best experience. Gwen, the bridal coordinator, made scheduling so painless. She was able to work in myself and five bridesmaids for hair, make-up and nail services without breaking a sweat and with only two weeks notice. She was prompt and polite in each of our email exchanges and was there on the day to make sure everything ran smoothly which felt very personal, it was nice.
I ended up being paired with Tiffany for my make up and Gabi for my hair. Tiffany was a doll, she is very sweet and my make up looked beautiful and was done in a very natural way. Gabi was incredibly fast and provided me with exactly what I wanted for my up-do. She truly has talent.
All of us looked great and I cannot thank the staff at Mina's enough for helping make my big day a little less stressful with such great service.

Kati is the best! – Kati is the best Brazilian waxer I have had. She made me feel very comfortable and the conversation flowed easily with her. I have sensitive skin, and she used products that didn't irritate me at all. I've never had such a good experience getting a Brazilian before. Plus, she's Hungarian (and that's where my family is from) so it added a lot of fun to the experience. If you're looking for the best waxer in Chapel Hill, see Kati Dézsi at Mina's Studio! (It's in the Galleria, next to the shopping center with Whole Foods, on Elliot Dr. between Franklin St. and 15-501). Köszönöm szépen, Kati!
Kati does it again - good job Kati on another satisfied customer! We're so lucky to have someone like Kati at our salon. She has over 2 decades of experience working as far as Europe and has built up quite an extensive knowledge in the profession (she's not only a licensed esthetician but also an esthetician teacher in Europe and America). If you haven't tried Kati you have to do so soon - her specialties include a natural approach to Facial treatments that promotes healthy, younger looking skin; eyebrow wax, eyelash/eyebrow tinting and bikini wax.
