Last Tuesday, Mina’s welcomed James Ruiz into the salon for a Bumble and Bumble class on razor cutting. Our educator, James, has been using the Bumble and Bumble product line for 12 years and has been working with the Bumble team and doing straight razor cuts for 7. He loves Bumble for their editorial and educational foundations as well as the freedom of creativity that comes along with razor cuts. He has a passion for education and draws inspiration from his travels and the different cultures he encounters. James used a live model for this class and Mina’s stylists then practiced on their own live models. The results were absolutely fabulous and we all learned a lot!

Based out of L.A., Kevin has been a stylist and color specialist for more than 20 years and has styled hair backstage at events for major names in fashion, as well as for numerous celebrities. Since 2011, Kevin has traveled extensively sharing his creativity and passion for hair as well as his vast knowledge of the Moroccanoil product line. At his visit to Mina’s, he taught a class on every day styling and up-dos using Moroccanoil products. Kevin’s technique, passion for salon education and emphasis on client satisfaction was truly inspiring to us and we are very excited about upcoming additions to the Moroccanoil line!

On August 8th we announced, via Facebook, that two of our stylists, Lane Clements and Enrique Weffer, worked on a special photo shoot with Chapel Hill Magazine in which they provided hair and make-up. Well, Chapel Hill Magazines 4th Annual Foodie Issue is now available and we could not be more thrilled with the outcome of the photo shoot!

Chapel Hill Magazine had a very creative idea to mix fall food and fashion and the model featured looks inspired by exquisite dishes from some of the best chefs in Chapel Hill.

As stated in the magazine: Why not let a dish inspire a dress, or the other way around? This spread was a lot of fun and was such a creative concept. We cannot thank CHM enough for asking us to be a part of it.

Pick up your issue or visit our Facebook or Google+ page and see why we are so proud of Lane and Enrique and how food inspires fashion and fashion inspires food!

On Saturday July 20th stylists Jackie and Erin went to support the OCRCC? fundraiser at the Orange County Social Club and provided head-shaving for their cause.

Rachel Valentine from the OCRCC said "We want to extend a special “thank you” to the local businesses that supported this effort: Jackie and Erin from Mina's Studio did a phenomenal job with the Punk Cuts, providing high quality styling service in a non-traditional setting . I can't say enough good things about them-- I highly recommend Mina's for your next styling needs!"

The OCRCC had hoped to raise $3,000 and with everyone's support they were able to surpass their goal! In the last several years the demand for support services has grown to new heights and its events like this that help our community and organizations like the OCRCC be able to reach those heights. To learn more about their organization or to donate please visit http://ocrcc.org/donate/

We want to thank the OCRCC and the OCSC for having us and allowing us to be a part of their cause.

Mina's Studio had the immense honor of being invited to Mark Christopher Salon in Raleigh last night to meet and observe a master in our industry, Mr. Nick Arrojo!

With his commitment to education Nick and his Arrojo team started “Happy Mondays” at Arrojo Academy in NYC as a platform for Nick and the Arrojo master stylists to share their knowledge and experience(s) with members of the hairdressing community. Nick and his team have since decided to take Happy Mondays on the road and Mina’s Studio was invited to experience a Happy Monday event first hand.

World-class education on razor cutting, demonstrated by Arrojo himself, and color techniques from one of Arrojo’s master colorists, Kelly, were just a couple of the highlights from last nights event. Nick also shared his wealth of knowledge on branding as well as the tools needed in order to build and create a successful business within our industry.

The experience was an intimate gathering bringing together hairdressing professionals from the Raleigh / Chapel Hill area and we feel so blessed to have been a part of it. We would like to thank Mark Christopher Salon for hosting and to the Arrojo team for their time and education. It was an experience our stylists will cherish for years to come, thank you!

November 2012

It's Tuesday and we are pleased to announce a new service available to all of the men out there..

Mina's Studio now provides the Man-zilian to Chapel Hill (also known as the Brazilian bikini wax for men). The Brazilian bikini wax is no longer gender-specific and men can reap the benefits of longer-lasting hair removal and fewer ingrown hairs just like their female counterparts. More and more men of all ages and lifestyles are embracing the art of hair removal and those that have chosen to jump on the bandwagon love it as some men dislike body hair just as much if not more than women. Men are also starting to forgo the itchy 5 o’clock shadow scenario in order to have a longer lasting smoother solution.

The Man-zilian will only be available on Mondays with team member Gabi from 9:00am to 5:30pm.

If interested the following steps should be taken to ensure you have the best possible results:

1. Take a couple of Ibuprofen one hour before your appointment time. This will help with the redness and swelling and will also help put you slightly at ease. (If possible avoid alcohol or caffeine for 24 hours before your service)

2. Come freshly showered

3. Be dry and free of any lotions..the less oily the area the better

4. Your hair should be at least 1/4 inch in length (which makes it long enough to lay flat on your skin). Please don't shave for at least two weeks prior to your appointment to ensure that your hair is long enough

5. Be comfortable. If possible, wear loose clothing that day to prevent irritation in the post-wax phase

6. Be relaxed. Reportedly the more relaxed your muscles are, the better your hair removal results will be

If you have additional questions, concerns, or want to schedule an appointment with Gabi please feel free to call 919.968.8548 or come by the studio.

Semisumo has arrived at Mina's Studio and this product is AMAZING!

The sumo family began in 2000, with the curiosity of a Parisian Editorial Stylist fascinated by the intersection of hairdressing and sumo wrestling. Laurent Philippon helped Bumble create Sumowax, Sumotech and now Semisumo.

Semisumo is a glossy, soft hold, polishing with control pomade that delivers strong shine. Great for frizz control and improves manageability. Smooth through any style to break it down and create the perfect perfect-less style.

Semisumo is part old world, part new, part french, part japanese and retails for $27.00 plus tax. This product is going to be a big hit so come by the studio and learn why we love this product and learn to love it too!

Mina's Studio owners Alejandra Scott and Louann Doran were interviewed by Sharon Hill for the WCHL program "Today's Business". Today’s Business looks to bring some of the brightest minds to radio, giving us a unique look into what is driving Triangle businesses today. The interview aired June 25 at 10am and 7pm on AM 1360 and is also available at www.chapelboro.com. Some of the radio show topics covered in the hour long interview include:
  • services at the salon such as hair, body, nail and skin care
  • the manicure and pedicure services including the Mina's studio pipeless pedicure chairs that are more sanitary than most normal pedicure chairs and feature water jets as part of the pedicure
  • what makes the salon special
  • the awards they've won such as "best salon in the Triangle" by Metro Magazine, Herald-Sun, Chapel Hill News, Chapel Hill Magazine and Citysearch
  • the importance of education in the salon industry to have the best salon professionals that remain informed of new trends and techniques
  • the variety of levels of hair stylists at the salon to fit every budget
  • how they came to Mina's Studio and the salon business
  • the bridal services available and how far people will travel for their wedding services (as far as China!)
  • how they came to Chapel Hill and what makes the area so special
The interview was a good opportunity for Mina's Studio to talk about what makes their salon unique and how they've survived all the ups and downs over their 20+ years of  serving the Chapel Hill and surrounding area. Mina's Studio has not only survived the tougher economic times they've also recently renovated and expanded offering new equipment, new improved aesthetics and more space for more salon employees. A special thanks to WCHL, Sharon Hill and the National Association of Women Business Owners for this opportunity to share more about our salon with Chapel Hill and Carrboro.
