Best Blonde Doctor in Bay Area – Exclusive Bumble and Bumble salon is a huge bonus, but Melvin Burns is a pure Pro. I have tried to find the best blonde doctors in town and he is it. He gets it right every time, I won't let you make dumb decisions like cutting your hair short into a "mom bob" when you are pregnant. Jamie and all the girls are so nice as well.
Keeping up the great work – I have been going to Jaimie at Salon Miel for about three years now, and I am still loving it. I have gone for short bobs, long layers, dark brunette, sun-kissed blonde, you name it, I've tried it and completely trust the work at this great salon to do whatever it is I wake up in the morning wanting and then changing it for me 6 months later when I get bored. Jaimie is wonderful and I highly recommend her work on all types of hair (she cuts my hair which is straight and fine, and she cuts my husband's hair which is thick and curly), but everyone at the salon is so nice and the vibe at the salon is very professional and polished yet totally laidback. They always have great recommendations for products but without sales pressure and are always great about booking appointments. Keep up the great work!
GREAT SALON – I am very picky when it comes to choosing hairstylist. I came in on saturday and had a haircut with Jessi. She was very friendly right off the bat, took my coat and made me feel very comfortable. she listened to what I wanted and never cut me off to tell me her opinion. then the whole entire time she was very easy to talk to and she ask me tons of questions about myself and genuinely interested about my life. her cuts and layers are very proffessionaly done. overall it was a really great experience and I'm gonna go back in January to get my hair colored =) ohh..not to mention all the stylist in this salon are trained in NYC Bumble n Bumble! So you know that you are in the hands of educated and experienced people...which means that your hair would grow out nice so that you dont have to go back to get your haircut until 3-4 months later. now thats what I called a great haircut!
Jamie Read My Mind! – Jamie is great! She did exactly what I wanted -- she really listened. I've been growing out a hack-job for 5 months, and was a little reluctant to get my hair "cut" again, so when Jamie sat me down, I expressed that I just wanted a "trim...for now". I have thick, curly hair but straighten it pretty often. Because of its' texture, there's no need to cut into it too much, but I guess the $90 stylist that I went to back in June never picked up on that. My "long layer" request turned into a tail, with a neck-level shelf where the layering ended.
Jamie really made my hair "flow" -- without much explanation. I always wanted to be able to straighten it, but wear it with a natural-looking wave. I finally have the long, flowing, wavy hair I was always looking for. I guess it's really all about the cut -- I mean -- the stylist!
I was referred to Jamie from another curly-haired friend, and what a find Jamie is!!
The salon experience was also great. Not pretentious, but with a highly skilled staff -- obviously!
Best Salon – I needed a last minute haircut for my wedding. I'm normally a "supercuts" kinda guy, but my future better half convinced me that if I was going to splurg on my head now was the time (plus she was footing the bill). So a friend of a friend suggested I head down to Salon Miel and see Teri. Let me just say Teri Rocks! First off, not that I much cared, but my hair was a little messed up. Years of abuse, stupid cheap hair dyes, bad $5 haircuts and yadayadayada. Teri was able to take the mess she was handed and turn it into a masterpiece-a! I had an idea of what I wanted and she was able to make it a reality. Teri was very cool, the salon itself is very hip, the rest of the staff is friendly, and most important to me the price was reasonable enough that I wasn't embarrased to tell my groomsmen how much I paid. MUY BIEN.
Teri is fantastic! – Teri has been cutting my hair for over a year now. When I first went to her, I had a very plain vanilla white-guy haircut. She set me up with a sweet style that worked great for the office when I wanted to dress up, but could also be more relaxed and fun on the weekend (and it is a snap to style at home every morning).
Teri is super cool and easy to talk to and I look forward to going in for each cut. She does a really relaxing mini scalp and neck massage that makes me leave feeling a little pampered. My girlfriend has also been to Teri for several haircuts--including for a wedding--and has been extremely happy with the results.
For guys, Teri does a free clean-up between haircuts that makes my hair look good for another couple weeks, meaning I can wait 6 weeks or so to spring for a haircut without looking scraggly.
The location only adds to the experience. Salon Miel has a very hip, cosmopolitan feel. The big windows let in a bunch of light and let you look out on the heart of downtown.
This is my new salon. – One of the reasons I first went to this salon was because they were so accommodating about appointments. I am usually able to get my hair cut during my lunch break. Jessi does my hair- she is really sweet and can do wonders with a round brush.
great hair, great experience. – I have been going to Ledora for a while now, she's awesome. She does amazing cuts and color. I always leave feeling great, and she does a good job making styling easy. Love her!

Salon Miel: There is only one and it is the newest it place in SF! – I have been getting my haircut at Salon Miel for six months now. I was referred to the owner Melvin Burns through the salon coordinator there, Brent Scott. He assured me that Melvin would listen to my concerns and take them to heart. He was right and now I will never let anyone touch my hair other than Melvin. I always walk out of the salon with a smile on my face knowing that I have been treated as an individual instead of another number. Burns has built a successful business with team members Jaimie, Jesse, and Brent supporting his philosophy of excellent customer service. I assure anyone that ventures into the salon that it will be an experience that they will cherish, as Salon Miel offers a fun, energetic, and happening environment all the while being professional. I strongly recommend Salon Miel to anyone in the San Francisco Bay area!
