Hair Stylist (owner)
Awards: Voted Best Hair Stylist in Orange County 2011 Chapel Hill News Rose Awards
Experience: I've been a hair stylist since 1991 and have been at Mina's Studio since 1999.
Speciality: Updos, highlights, haircuts and cutting/straightening curly hair along with trendy, modern and extreme hair fashions. Blondes have become my new passion! With the right variations I can give you stunning blond hair that looks healthy and natural.
Certification: Academy of Modeling and Beauty - Herman's Institute. Certified in cut and color by Aveda, Bumble & bumble and Goldwell.
Creative Approach: I feel it is important to listen to what the clients needs and desires are and come up with a style that is specifically designed and customized for them. My goal is that when they leave Mina's Studio that they feel better about themselves and the image that they project to others. I love to work on trendy, modern and extreme hair fashions.
Reviews: "Alejandra is an awesome stylist!!!" by DINA *** S
"Another super, precision short haircut. I brought pictures. Alejandra listened and we talked about cutting my curly hair short...no razors, thinning shears, leave bulk and long layers. It's much different cutting my hair than straight hair. She understands that & I get a perfect cut EVERY time." by LIBBY * G
"Alejandra listens to any concern and does an outstanding job. Very talented and professional." by Carol L., DemandForce
"Alejandra did it again!! A fantastic short, pixie haircut w/ texture on top, but still leaving enough hair to look feminine (not easy to do)." by Libby G., DemandForce

"I love the way my stylist and the staff make an effort to get to know me and also to provide the best service they can by asking all the right questions about the services I need." by Stephanie
"I love that I can walk into the salon feeling a little frumpy and inevitably walk out feeling like a celebrity. My hair is one part of my appearance that I take a lot of pride in. I love that Alejandra listens! When I ask for only an inch off it is only an inch! Alejandra is also so sweet, she somehow remembers me each time I come in even though it is usually at least 3 months between visits." by Stefanie B.
"I love to come to Mina's Studio. Alejandra is a wonderful hair stylist - she is great with cutting and coloring and knows the latest styles. She is an expert. It is great to have her and Mina's Studio in Chapel Hill." by Barbara Day
"Am new to town and was recommended to go to Alejandra for cut and highlights. Sure glad I went, my hair looks fantastic and I am so happy with the results. I am certainly going back." by guest at Judy's Book
"Alejandra has always done wonderful work with my hair. She has cut, permed and put highlights in my hair. I have always looked much better after she has worked on my hair." by Dottie at Yahoo Local
"Always great place to go for good service. Alejandra cut my hair and put highlights in it. She did a very good job of improving my appearance and I did go back. Next time I received a permanent and it was not fuzzy at all like some of my other perms have been. She has a very pleasant personality and is so helpful at getting the look that you want." by returning customer at Citysearch
"Mina's is Fantastic!. I just had my first haircut with Alejandra, and she was WONDERFUL! I moved to the area 2 years ago and have been searching for someone who can cut my hair right (I have very fine, but thick cork screw curls). I've actually been flying back home to get a cut. I've gone a year without a cut, as I am very picky with who cuts my hair. I had my last stylist for 10 years. I found Mina's on line and reviewed the BIO's of the stylist and chose Alejandra, as she likes working with long hair and curls. I had to drive 30 minutes to get to the salon, but it was worth it." by hallcm1 at Citysearch
"Life Savers for a Northern transplant. I moved to the South from up North and suddenly my straight hair went into frizz-action I'd never seen the likes of on me. I struggled for 2 years to find someone to perfect a cut that would allow my hair to hang straight and NOT flip up in the Chapel Hill summer. A neighbor whose hair I liked very much said I should try Alejandra at Mina's. I was already going there for my manicures and pedicures, so I booked an appointment after the manicurist also suggested I try her. Alejandra worked tirelessly and performed her magic just in time for my daughter's wedding last Fall. Today I would like to thank her, and everyone who works so hard at Mina's to help all of us feel/look beautiful." by cathyprimack at Citysearch
"Best Salon I've found yet in the Triangle.... It has been a long journey finding someone I can trust to be my stylist, and in my profession, having a put together look is necessary when I give presentations to my clients. After finding a great stylist in Alejandra, I have been at ease knowing that I will walk out of Mina's looking great everytime." by oppositofworst at Citysearch
