Jorge Esquivel

Jorge Esquivel
Hair Stylist

Awards: Voted Best Barber in Chapel Hill, Carrboro & Hillsborough two years in a row in the 2011 and 2012 Chapel Hill News Rose Awards

Experience: I've been a hair stylist since 1986 and have been at Mina's Studio since 2010.

Speciality: Jorge's specialty is cutting hair in the most current styles appropriate for students andprofessionals, male and female,and particularly excels at updating a client's look.

Creative Approach: New customers comment on the extreme care he takes with cuts; old customers know that they can always expect an overall good experience. After many years in Chapel Hill, Jorge finds that he has developed a loyal following of clients based on professional trust and understanding due to Jorge's good listening and excellent scissor skills, and he now considers his older customers true friends.

Reviews: "Jorge is the best stylist I've ever had, and that's saying a lot since I used to work in the salon industry! Keep up the good work!" by Melissa Y, DemandForce

"I have had THE BEST haircut of my life from Jorge ... it is really fantastic." by Genevia

"Jorge is my oldest friend in Chapel Hill. I met him the fall semester of my freshman year and nobody has cut my hair since then." G. - loyal customer since 1984

"I have been going to Jorge for over 10 years. I've spent a fortune at some big salons in New York and San Francisco-- and Jorge does a much better job. In fact I think he once worked at a famous salon in New York. He takes his time and really pays attention to detail. You never feel rushed."

"I live in Chicago and fly into Chapel Hill so Jorge can cut and color my hair. I discovered Jorge when I was visiting my daughter while she was at school. I used to purposely visit her when I needed my hair done. She luckily still lives in the area -- so I fly in every 2 month for a visit and haircut. There is no comparable place -- Jorge has a real talent! He only cuts a style that you hairtype can handle -- so you can just wash and go. Also he really spend a lot of time making each cut perfect!"

"Jorge is a gem!"

"AWESOME haircuts"
