Mounir saved my hair! he is not only an incredible color expert but also a true professional - passionate about his work and honest to his clients. Last fall, I came to him for a consultation after a hair salon completely ruined my hair. The color I came in with was black dyed over cherry red (both colors I NEVER intended on having). When I came in to oh la-la all I wanted was a quick fix. But instead of trying to fix my hair on the spot (like all the other salons would do), Mounir explained that an immediate fix would be very damaging to my hair and instead told me to wait a few months to come back. His theory is all about gradual change and one thing I can tell you is that IT WORKS! It took me about a 6 months or so to fix my hair and at this point I've been his client for a year now. However, even though it's been a year, I've only gone to him three times (twice in the beginning and once after a seven month period)! Since he used the balayage technique, the color grows out beautifully. During the seven months that I hadn't gone, it never looked like I had roots and the only reason I went again is because I wanted to go a bit lighter. My hair looks amazing and most of all it looks shiny and healthy. I highly recommend Mounir to anyone looking for a hair color expert, he's the best!
