I've been going to Miwa-Alex for seven years. I adored Miwa who dispensed philosophy along with a great haircut. And although I was devestated when she passed away, the staff continued her policy of excellence and caring. I'm very happy with the service - Barbara for color and advice and Terue for haircuts.
I have been following Peter Ripley around for the last 8 years. He is an expert colorist who consistently creates a completely natural look for my brown hair. People think its my real color! Thanks Peter for being to in tune with my hari color.
I wouldn't go anywhere else. And I haven't for almost 30 years (I began going to this salon when I was still an embryo). Always get a cut or color that is fresh and new. There will never be a replacement for Miwa in my heart. The people she brought into this salon are solid in their own rights. Barbara is fantastic with color - and honesty. She'll tell you when you're asking for something that she doesn't feel is flattering. Nathalie is a wizard with a pair of scissors. I trust her completely. I never thought I'd feel that way about anyone other than Miwa. Nathalie helps you push the envelope if you're looking to take a step outside of your comfort zone. Very honest, great vision. Teroue is fabulous, too, particularly with straight hair. I love this salon. They are very good at what they do and they do it with warmth.
Peter Ripley - what can I say about the way he does my color??? Amazing, fabulous, natural, and always PERFECT!!! What can I say about the man, Peter Ripley??? Amazing, fabulous, natural and always PERFECT!!! For two years he's been making me happy in all ways.
O.K. so Love this place! My hair is fabulous and Regina always does an amazing job. The cut and color is always on point and lets me be able to manage and style easily as I am always on the go. The staff and service is great and I must say it is always relaxing and a pleasure to go. I especially enjoy the shampoo beds, it's like going to a mini spa.
I have been going to Miwa-Alex for years and absolutely LOVE this salon! The sink beds are what first clinched it for me - no more straining my neck to get my hair washed and oh-so relaxing (I almost fell asleep twice!). The staff is always attentive and makes me feel comfortable and welcome. I usually use Regina and I love every cut / color she has ever given me! I have gone to Barbara a few times as well when Regina was unavailable and she is great, too! Highly Recommend!
I was very happy (and so was my Hubby) and would highly recommend this salon. I made an appointment with Regina upon a recommendation from my sister (after I raved about how fabulous her hair always looked). I was apprehensive since I had never colored my youthful blonde hair and was worried about damage- even though it turned a mousey gray after child #4, but Regina assured me that I was in competent hands and her years of experience were at my disposal :) I left there looking a full 10 years younger (at least- according to my husband ;) ) with healthier hair than before I walked in- and it was colored! My experience was exceptional and I was pleasantly received by everyone in the salon. I'm glad I trusted her, her eye for shape and color are right on. Thank you Regina- mission accomplished!
Barbara is the best colorist EVER! – I have been going to Barbara for 7 years...
I cannot recommend her enough.
When I want an instant mood lift I go see Barbara for a touch up. The cost is so reasonable too. !
Peter is a great colorist! – I have not been happy with my color for several years, and decided to find a new colorist. I remembered Peter from his days as a more junior colorist at another salon, as he always seemed to be customer focused and conscientious about his work. I found him at Miwa Alex, and now I could not be more happy with my color. He took a long time to determine what he would do to address my concerns, and the result of his efforts are perfect. I will not lose track of him again!
Lovin' the Look! – Peter Ripley is a color genius!! I walked in and he turned a color disaster into a gorgeous head of hair. Barbara gave me a cute cut, and now I have friends and strangers raving about my "new" hair! Thank you both. xo - Karen
