People are always asking us for salon recommendations around San Francisco. I can definitely sympathize, finding someone you can trust your hair with is very tricky. When I first moved to the city it was more trial and error, which was never a good situation for my hair. But four years ago I found Mia from Color By Mia and never left. I have been going to see her longer than I have had the blog! I have followed her to 3 different salons and will continue to follow her as her work is flawless. Not only does she always give me exactly what I want, but going to see her is more like catching up with an old girlfriend than getting your hair done!
Mia is a 2nd generation Bay Area native with a love for the California coast. Born in Oakland and raised in Berkeley, Mia got her start in hair first as a model and then a freelance print and commercial stylist. She has worked as a sought after colorist at premiere San Francisco salons such as Architects and Heroes and DiPietro Todd. In fact, Mia’s work was recommended by Allure Magazine.
She has specialized in color for more than 15 years and has trained in San Francisco, Paris, New York, London, Miami, and L.A. Mia has acquired extensive knowledge of the latest products such as Goldwell, Schwartzkopf, Wella, Matrix, Clairol, Loreal, Solaris and Redken. She is current, professional, well read. With both Mexican and Filipino ancestry she prides herself on being an expert at Asian and Latino hair color. She is the creator of the premiere anti-aging hair treatment called HALO. Mia currently works at both San Francisco and Oakland based salons, visit Mia: here
