Reviews: "Friendly, asked if I was pleased. I AM!" by Sarah M.
"I think Lane is one of the most talented hairstylists I've had for many years! I've also gotten facials from several people, always very nice and relaxing. TWO THUMBS UP! " by Tonya S.
"My fave stylist is Lane. He is extremely talented and always spends several minutes just talking to me about my needs and wants. Basically, going to Mina's is how I imagined hair salons when I was a child. You sit down and have a very adult conversation about exactly what you want... Lane talks to you and actually explains the science behind what he's doing (I'm a nerd and I like the chemistry behind everything). Also, he uses brand new techniques which make me feel like I'm a superstar :D" by Alex H. at Citysearch
"Great Experience!. My husband thought he was getting a great hair cut before. Then he went to Lane at Mina's and was so impressed that he begged me to come in and see him too! I was not let down! I was ready for a change and Lane gave me exactly what I wanted. We did a complete color change and cut my hair short. He talked me through the shades of red we were looking at and picked the perfect color... Lane fixed my hair for me and he even checked in a few days later to make sure that I was happy!! He honestly cares and wants you to be happy with his work!! ... It is about a 45 min drive for me to drive to Mina's but I am going to keep making that trip!" by TLCP13 at Citysearch
"LANE is AMAZING!!!. Even though I live in Raleigh, I followed Lane to Mina's when he moved from a studio closer to me because he is just a wonderful and talented stylist. He knows what I want for my hair and also makes suggestions for subtle, more updated changes, and he incorporates them slowly from visit to visit so I can grow more comfortable with them. I had an appointment yesterday, and we have been talking for about the past four days about a new direction for my hair, and he talked me through the whole thing - from color to cut to how to style it myself. I have never trusted a stylist more - EVER. When I walk out of there, I feel like a million dollars and everyone gives me so many compliments. I have always been told I have beautiful hair, but I have not ever known what to do with it until Lane. He is simply THE BEST... Get an appointment with Lane NOW before he's totally booked up!..." by amsantucci at Citysearch
"BEST SALON IN THE TRIANGLE...I followed Lane, the little bald guy, from his previous salon to Mina's because I love what he has done for my hair and I know several other people that feel the same way and also followed him to Mina's. He is very talented, listens to me, and has great ideas but isn't at all pushy. Most of all, he has integrity..." by baronness at Citysearch
"Beautiful studio, pleasant atmosphere, skilled stylists ...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!..." by Chup at Citysearch
"Lane is THE Best Hair Stylist EVER!!! ...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!!" by AmyRG at Citysearch
