Sometimes in life there are those lucky moments when awful disaster turns into good fortune. This happened to me almost 5 years ago when a particular hair stylist at a salon ruined my healthy, naturally curly hair by over processing it with color, highlights and a glaze. Surely an awful disaster, to say the least. I was devastated and desperate to find an experienced curly hair specialist who might be able to rectify my situation. I was in tears as I sat at my computer to begin my search for this magic person I imagined in my mind.
To my surprise, my online search allowed me to discover Mia at d. Sabrina Salon in Fairfield, CT. My luck was evident just for the fact that Mia was located only 30 minutes from where I live. I immediately called her and explained that my natural curls now looked as if I had stuck my finger in a light socket and I now had "fried" hair. She said, "Come right over".
The rest of my story is pure good fortune. Mia examined my hair and, being completely honest, gave me her assessment....it would take a long time for me, once again, to have healthy curls. I needed a great deal of patience and consistent visits with Mia over the next 2 years for her to help the integrity of my curls to return. A long process, however she promised me positive results. My devotion to Mia started that very day.
Exactly 2 years later, just as Mia had promised, my curls were again lustrous, bouncy, and manageable. Thanks to Mia's expertise, her talents, and her precise directions for styling my curls, I actually became "famous" for my hair! I should have kept count of all the times I am stopped on the street, in stores, at parties, in restaurants...even at tollbooths! All I hear is: "You have gorgeous curls, I just love your hair!"
Here I am, almost 5 years later, and I am still relishing my good fortune for having Mia in my life. She has taught me so much -- how to take care of my curls and how to manage my curls (before Mia, not an easy thing to do!) She trims my curls every 10 weeks and I compare her skills to those of a surgeon's expert hands.
Let's face it -- our hair is our headache or our joy. I am convinced that Mia can bring joy to every curly girl out there. She is a wizard, a miracle worker, a perfectionist, a knowledgeable force....AND a wonderful human being!
I am a very lucky woman and hope other curly girls will experience Mia's magic. She will change your life!
I am so grateful to have found Mia! Like many others, I struggled with my naturally wavy hair for most of my life. Living in NYC I went to salons like Bumble & Bumble, Ouidad, etc., but none of the stylists ever took the time to really teach me how to keep my hair healthy or style it properly. Then we moved to Fairfield and I found Mia. What a difference! Mia took the time to explain everything, from keeping my hair healthy and shiny with the right products, to how to style it properly to bring out the most curl. I have been with Mia for about 1 year and my hair looks the best it has ever looked in my entire life! I was at an event recently and some commented on my "beautiful, princess hair." That is 100% thanks to Mia!
I have been going to Mia for about a year now, and I am so grateful to all the reviewers below, whose sentiments I want to echo. Without them, I wouldn't have found Mia, and I would still hate my hair. Mia is a riot and fun to see each appointment. But the most important thing is that she made me feel better about my appearance in a very short time. My previous colorist had me using damaging products that clashed with my skin tone. My previous stylist cut my hair for the blow out, not for the potentially beautiful curls I could have had for years. I am just so thrilled to be able to wear my hair down and looking healthy. It makes a huge difference. I adhere to the routine Mia prescribed, and I find my hair looking better and better. Even if you have to travel to D.Sabrina, I recommend you do!
I had my first appointment with Mia in July, one month after finding NC.com and deciding to embrace my curls. I have been in love with my hair ever since! I no longer get bulky triangle hair since Mia worked her magic. Mia's knowledge on caring for curly hair helped me get started on creating my own routine, and ever since then people compliment my curls everywhere I go! I rave about Mia to every curly person I know. I wear my hair down just about all the time now, whereas my signature style when I was straightening was a ponytail. I urge all CT curly girls that are tired of straightening but don't know where to start to stop bothering with cheap haircuts intended for straight hair and make an appointment with Mia ASAP. She is AMAZING and you will NOT regret it!
I have been coming to Mia for a curly haircut for over a year and each visit is a pleasure and happiness. Mia is a very warm, natural and easy going type of person. she will put you in a good mood no matter what. In addition to her great personality she has an amazing talent if it goes for cutting curly hair. Not only she does it extremely well and is able to tailor the cut to your preference, needs and liking, but when she cuts hair she resembles sometimes an artist in a focused trans. It's because of this passion for what she does, the final product is a work of art with a lot of heart put into it. If you are looking for a stylist with a great personality, knowledge, experience and passion for what she does, than Mia would be the right pick.
Just had my hair cut today by the amazing Mia. Not only is she a great stylist but just a pleasure to be around. I've never had my hair cut in its natural curly state before usually a blowout and then cut. I am so pleased with the outcome and my curls have never looked better. Mia gave some great styling tips for my wash and go. Looking forward to my next visit when I get my highlights. I'm totally ready for some warm weather with this new haircut. Thanks Mia, you're amazing!
Mia is a curly girl's dream come true! I was tired of hairdressers always trying to convince me to straighten my hair…until I found Mia! She really knows her stuff and will take the time to figure out what works for your hair. She's also super nice and never pushes you to buy products. Make an appointment with Mia and you won't be sorry.
Mia. Is. Amazing. I'm a woman of multiracial heritage (Black, Irish, Cape Verdean, and Native American) and I have ALWAYS struggled with my hair. My journey to Mia's chair was a long one, but well worth the wait. My 3c hair has always been thick, a bit unruly, bushy at times, and its own natural barometer. At 8 years old, my mom allowed me to get my first relaxer to tame the wild beast...and I loved it! It wasn't wash and wear hair, but I could whip it back and forth, and for once I looked a little more like the other girls at school. However, after nearly 20 years of chemical treatments, I had had enough and decided to go natural. I've tried several salons--some where I would get my hair cut, blown out, and flat ironed (which did not translate well into curly styles!), and others that specialized in curls--but not curls like mine. After a few disappointing curly haircuts at another salon, I turned to naturallycurly.com for help. I found D Sabrina Salon, and read all of the glowing reviews that Mia had received, but I was skeptical. There's curly hair, and then there's the "mixed girl's" curly hair that's got a bit of kink, a whole lot of frizz, and a lot of curly attitude. Desperate for a hair miracle, I finally made an appointment with Mia...and she did not disappointment! As soon as I sat in her chair, she looked at my hair and put my mind at ease saying "You're going to love how your hair comes out." After our consultation where she took her time to "diagnose" the sad current state of my hair, she gave me the absolute best haircut of my life and the products and skills to actually replicate what she did! My hair has been looking fabulous since starting to go to Mia. I truly believe Mia's the hair whisperer (not to mention the sweetest person ever:) Make your appointment today!
Mia is wonderful. She is very talented, an expert in her profession and a truly lovely person to talk to. She has given me the best haircut of my life on the first try! I would highly recommend her.
Mia gives an amazing curly cut; she can make your hair behave in ways you never thought possible! And Jason will give you color that will have total strangers giving you compliments on the street.
I went for my first appointment with Mia last night and wow!. My hair has never looked so good. She took her time with me and explained everything to me. I have been to alot of salons only to come out with the same result, short hair. Mia is a very confident, skilled and professional stylist. I had been stalking her reviews for almost a year and I can honestly say, she IS the curly hair guru. Sandra
I just had my hair cut by Mia and it is fantastic! Not only was it a blast working with her, but she took time to explain why she did everything and showed me how to properly style my curls. They have never looked better! I have wavy hair and was afraid I was losing my curls, but with Mia's cut and style she brought them back to life. Most importantly she listened to my concerns and responded directly to them. Nobody gets the same cut it's all about what's best for your curls. The best part is since she shared her styling secrets with me my hair looks great when I style it too, not just when I left the salon. She is wonderful!
I got my hair cut and styled by Mia a few weeks ago and I walked out actually feeling good about my hair for once. I have copious amounts of extremely tight curls, and she knew just what to do with them. I can't even count how many awful hair cuts I've had in the past. She did her best to repair the aftermath of my previous bad hair cut, and she gave me several tips on managing and styling my hair. She is a very talented and professional individual (and she doesn't BS). Definitely go see her, she knows what she's doing!
Mia is Fantastic and here's why: For the past seven years I have been going to the same stylist (not Mia) and I have moved to three different states in that time and have continued to see my stylist, taking road trips from three to six hours just for a haircut. The last two trips my stylist disappointed me. I think there was a comfort level that lead to too much of the stylist's own whim and creative ideas. After my last cut left me with an over grown mullet/rat tail look I decided that it was time for a change. I considered taking a road trip back to my stylist so the cut could be fixed but realized that I didn't have the time or patience. I found Mia on this site, after reading everyone's reviews I decided to make an appointment. Mia was able to fix my cut without chopping off all of my hair. She listened to my concerns and was able to empathize with me. I really like that she is a Curly Girl herself. I left the salon feeling very comfortable and have recommended Mia to my curly friends. Another great thing about Mia, she didn't push her products on me. At other salons I have left feeling forced into buying their products, spending way too much money on something that I end up throwing away. If you are a curly girl looking for a stylist who will listen, be honest, and truly understands curly hair, I would recommend you call Mia. You won't be disappointed.
So before I went to see Mia, I wore my hair in a ponytail 95% of the time, the other 5% of the time I wore it half up. Ever since Mia cut my hair, I've worn it down (down!!) 95% of the time. The other 5% this time was just because I was too lazy to do my hair that day. Even though "doing" my hair now takes only 5-10 min and it looks fab. I can't tell you the compliments I've had and how many people have said, "I never knew your hair was so curly!" Mia is a sweetheart and just an amazing, amazing hairstylist. GO see her!
A good friend of mine referred me to Mia and I am eternally grateful! I was in search of a salon/stylist who specializes in cutting curly hair as the place I had gone to previously was thinning my hair out. My hair is curly and very fine and thin, but I have a lot of it, and it seemed like every hair stylist I went to cut my hair as if I had straight hair. Mia (THE CURLY HAIR GURU) was upfront with me on what I needed to do to get my hair looking its best. At the end of my first appointment, my hair looked GORGEOUS! I had never seen my curls looking so great! She showed me exactly what to do, the products to use and different techniques. It also helps that Mia is so outgoing and friendly. I always enjoy my appointments with her. For the first time in 36 years I love my hair! Thank you Mia, you're AMAZING!
All Hail Mia, the curly hair Goddess!!! I just had to add my thoughts to this site because everyday, when I style my hair, I think about Mia, and say that in my head. I am SO happy I started going to Mia back in December. My hair is 100 times better than it ever was my whole life, and I owe it all to her. Sometimes when your so happy with something or someone, you just have to share it, so I am. If you are not happy with your curls, you need to see Mia. She is a lifesaver. Thanks to D. Sabrina Salon and to Mia for making my morning ritual a positive experience and my hair to look and feel fabulous.
I had the most awful curly hair EVER! I know, I know, all of us curly girls think that their hair is the worst, but really, mine was so ridiculous, unhealthy and unmanageable. I have tight, kinky, fine hair and LOTS of it. So, here’s my story… I had been going to the same salon for years (no names, sorry). I had been relaxing it, coloring it and basically getting bad haircuts. Truth be told, I wasn’t taking care of it either. I wasn’t being diligent about conditioning or getting frequent haircuts. Of course, I have since learned that more frequent haircuts would actually help my curls grow, but let’s face it, curly girls hate getting their hair cut. Come on, admit it, you know you’re the same way. Anyway, to continue… I was going to d.Sabrina Salon for my manicures (oh – that’s another story – but that I will post on yellowpages.com – if you want to have the best pedi/mani you ever had in your life!). The owner, Sabrina, has a sister Mia who is a hair stylist extraordinaire and one of her talents is specializing in curly hair (both her and her sister have curly hair as well). Mia is a great girl. She is funny, outgoing, just in general and an absolute doll. She would always come by and chat with me. I knew she wanted to get her hands on my hair, you could just tell, but she was very professional and would never diss a fellow hair stylist. I would always check her out doing someone else’s curls, secretly wondering if my hair could ever be as beautiful as the person sitting in her chair. One day I finally had the courage to ask her what she thought of my hair. Did she think it could look better and dare I say, grow long? I told her my hair CAN’T grow long and she said that if I gave her one year where I did everything she said to do in terms of hair health (she has lots of good advice about other things as well), my hair will be long and beautiful. Of course I thought she was a little crazy because I knew my hair got to a certain length and would just break off, however, I wasn’t happy where I was, so I decided to take the plunge even though I was terrified at the prospect of someone new cutting my hair. Let’s face it, we all have had bad haircuts that have traumatized us for months, even years! I’m still pissed at my Mother for sending me for a haircut when I was twelve that ended up making me look like a young Michael Jackson, something a twelve year old Jewish girl DOES NOT want to look like. Finally… A year has come and gone and I can honestly say that my hair has never looked more beautiful. I go for haircuts regularly and care for my hair as prescribed by my hair guru, Mia. My curls have never looked more amazing, healthy and LONG! I literally was missing hair at the bottom when I started with Mia. You could see through it and my hair on top of my head was just a puffy mess. But now it is GORGEOUS! I love my curls and I owe it all to Mia. She really cares about what she is doing and cares about her clients. She also understands that every head of curls is unique and needs a cut that is tailored to that person. I have to say I am truly a believer! I wholeheartedly recommend Mia to take care of your curls. I won’t trust anyone else to cut my hair ever again! She is also one of the funniest people I have ever met. Bonus. :)
Naturally Curly Girls, it's time to break up with your current stylist and go to Mia. I met with Mia a week ago and the change in my hair is like night and day. I am recovering from a 'bad' cut I got 6 months ago (we all know w/ curls... that could take forever to come back). However, I consulted with Mia, she assessed my problem areas and although could only trim minimal parts to try to even me out, she was able to coach me on how to do my hair, handle my curls and deal with my 'growing out' phase. I am so happy I went to her. I feel so much better about my hair already. And since going to her, my hair has never been so soft and looks healthy. I received compliments on it all week. So if your out there,looking for a savior for your curls, go see Mia. It is worth every bit of it.
I had my hair cut today by Mia and it has never looked better. For the first time in years, I actually like my curly hair. Mia took a lot of time showing me how to use products and manage my hair. I'm looking forward to seeing if I can make it look like she did. However, she has made herself very available should I have any problems so I am not worried. I very much recommend her and the salon. It is a very relaxing, friendly place to go. And finally a stylist who understands how to make curly hair (and my is very curly, fizzy, kinky -- the worst type of curly hair) beautiful.
Mia gave me my first curly cut, and I have now had my hair cut by her three times. She was excellent at demonstrating how to style my hair myself, and though it never looks quite as good when I do it, it comes out way better than it used to! Every time I leave the salon, I get compliments on my hair from friends and strangers. She is great! Also, Jason at D Sabrina is an amazing colorist, so you should book a color appointment with him before your curly cut. You won't regret it!
Mia is amazing!! I'd been to another curly salon and was not happy with it at all so I decided to call Mia because of the reviews on this site. It was the best decision I could have made. She spent a lot of time with me and showed me how to maintain it on my own. I went for my first haircut back in May and it still looks great. Not only is she super talented, she is a wonderful person. She clearly cares about what she does and the whole experience was great. Before Mia, I straightened my hair ALL the time. Now, I wear it curly MOST of the time. I won't be going anywhere else! Thanks Mia!
Mia is the best! She gave me a terrific cut and told me everything she was doing. She went through the entire process of treating my curls and made them look fantastic. two days later, I went back and she led me through the process again, helping me with each step so that I could make my hair look almost as good as she did. It's been a month and I am thrilled with the way my curls look. They are silky, controlled, and frizz free. Heaven!
Mia was great... I had never been to a stylist that specialized in curly hair and she gave me a fantastic cut! She just gets curly hair and I am very happy with the results!
What a find! I first found Mia throught this website, and am so thrilled to have connected with her! For the first time in 33 years, I LOVE my curly hair! I am constantly getting compliments on how great my hair looks now (pretty much on a daily basis). I have been telling every curly haired girl I know about D. Sabrina and Mia! Thanks Mia for making me love my hair. Pani
Mia is a wonderful stylist and person. After many years of cutting my thick hair short or styling it straight I decided to go curly. I experimented with different products and then I came across your website and reviews for Mia. I called her and set-up a consultation and was amazed at the time she spent with explaining what she would do to improve how it looked and recommended products and how to use them. She has curly hair herself and uses the same products. After seeing my usual stylist, I compared notes and decided to try Mia. I have not regretted my decision. She takes her time and explains what she is doing and my hair always looks great. I have had people stop and tell me my curls look great and ask who does my hair, even people with straight hair! If you are looking for a great stylist for curly hair donâ€™t hesitate to call Mia. Like me, you will be happy with the results.
I am so happy to have found Mia through this website. She is the answer to my (curls') prayers! I'm old enough to have had many stylists in the past (some fabulous, others not so much), and I can saythat Mia is the finest, most gifted styler of curls I've had the pleasure to know. She is a tremendously talented artist--Mia really gets hair--and my locks have grown lovelier for her interventions. She's also giving me confidence, showing me that I can do things with my hair that I didn't think I could (ex: let it grow!). It's nice to be in the hands of someone who knowswhat she's doing, not to mention that she happens to be a beautiful person. It's a privilege to sit in her chair, and hopefully all her clientsrecognize this. She's a goddess and we are lucky to have her. God bless Mia."
Mia is a genius when it comes to curly hairâ€¦.she works her magic so that my hair falls into curls instead of poofing into a frizzy mess. Mia works with the natural curl and texture of my hair instead of trying to make my hair do something itâ€™s not meant to do. Plus, because Mia is very concerned with the health and condition of hair, the hair color she uses is the gentlest available. My hair has never been healthier!
Mia is the best thing that EVER happened to my hair! After having kids, my hair just would not curl. It seemed to be stuck in the middle of curly and straight. After 13 years of going to the same sytlist, it just got worse and worse. I was so desperate, I had her perm my hair. That was the biggest mistake! Finally, I was recommended to Mia. It took about 6 months to fix all the bad haircuts I had, but from the first day Mia cut my hair, it already looked 100% better. I have been going to her for two years now and my hair looks the best it ever has. I never have a problem with my hair not curling anymore. She is always up on the new styles, trends and products. I feel like she took 10 years off my life (and my hair). I'm so glad she was recommended to me and now I'm passing it on to all of you!
I cannot say enough about Mia. She is absolutely wonderful. I went to Mia after having had not 1 but 2 very bad haircuts. She was reccomended to me by a friend who was already a client of Mia's. When I went to Mia she told I had a "diva" cut. Let me just say I didn't look like a diva, I looked like a poodle. When I met with Mia for the first time she assured me that it was definitely fixable, but it would take some time. I have had 3 haircuts with Mia since then and my hair looks a million times better. I no longer look like a poobdle. I can actually feel comfortable wearing my hair down again. I am so thankful that I followed my friends advice and went to Mia. She is a wonderful stylist.
After 37 years, I have finally found someone to cut my curly hair. I always thought that I had a pretty good curly cut until I met Mia. After pregnancy, my hair changed completely and felt I needed a new sytlist. After checking out your website, I found Mia. Not only was she knowledgable and professional, she was also funny, warm and kind. She truly understands curly hair like no other stylist. She takes her time and really gets to know you before she cuts your hair. I love my curls! I will never go to anyone else again!
If you have curly hair, Mia is the person to go to... Mia gives great haircuts and color. She is an absolute sweetie, and since she has curly hair herself, she understands the struggles most of us face day to day. I have had my hair cut by what some consider the "top salons" and I can honestly say they don't have a fifth of the talent that Mia has when it comes to dealing with curly hair. I will never go anywhere else!!!!!
Mia is great! She has curly hair herself, so she understands it as a hairstylist and a client. She listened to what I wanted and made it better. You can clearly see how much she enjoys cutting hair, and she is definitely very talented and knowledgeable. She was also able to recommend great products and show me how to get a beautiful head of curls at home. I love my curly hair again! I will go back to her and would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing a great haircut....especially for curly hair!
