I had just finished a film in Italy and the director asked the set stylist to color my hair. It was my first experience - I didn't speak much Italian and was unable to convey to the colorist that "frosting" caps had gone out of style. My hair was a mess of stripes. Louis Viél not only fixed the problem, he made my hair look better than it had ever looked before. No one has touched my hair with color since that day. He blends three different shades of color to create a natural look and add definition to my curly hair. The best compliment is that the natural highlights in my 4-year old daughter's hair are a perfect match to mine. -Melina Kanakaredes, Television/Film/ Broadway star.
Thanks to Damien, viewers don't send me combs in the mail anymore - and he's the best political handicapper in the hair business. -George Stephananopoulos, Anchor of "This Week with George Stephananopoulos", Chief correspondent of ABC News and Cohost on Good Morning America.
Miano Viél Salon is fabulous! Great hair, great color, great spa services. I've never been disappointed - ever! - Marsha Mason, Actress.
Thank goodness for Louis Viel! I have spent most of my adult life in search of great hair color, and was always disappointed. That is, until I met Louis Viel. Louis and I have been together (and YES it IS a relationship!) for over 5 years. Whether it's a single process or a full 3 hour commitment, I have never walked out of the salon feeling anything other than great. I get compliments all the time on my color, and I am always happy to share my not-so-secret weapon, Louis. Not only does my hair have great color, it is always healthy and shiny both in look and feel. The salon itself is so friendly and inviting. From being greeted at the reception desk, to Esther whisking me back to Louis' chair, there is a tremendous feeling of comfort and hospitality. I think this is such an important part of Miano Viel's success. It's no wonder they have had such a thriving business for more than 25 years. Louis is a genius and sets the standard in this industry. Thank you, thank you Louis for making women all around the country feel so beautiful when they walk out your doors. - Nancy Berger Cardone Publisher of Marie Claire.
Before I was a wise-ass newspaper columnist and critic who was allowed to make fun of presidents and kings, movie stars and moguls, I was a beauty editor. As in the beauty editor of "Elle" and "Cosmopolitan." And even though I had access to every hairdresser and colorist in NYC, I couldn't find even one who knew how to cut and color me. I'd end up with one-inch bangs and pitch black hair. Then I found the magical team of Miano Viél. For the first time, my hair color was pitch perfect (that would be Louis) instead of pitch black and my cut was chic instead of scary (that would be Damien). For the past 15 or so years, no one has touched a hair on my head except for Damien Miano and Louis Viél. They are brilliant at what they do, and brilliant at who they are. Not to put too fine a point on it, but really, it's possible that I'd die if I couldn't have my Miano Viél fix as often as humanly possible. Brilliant! - Linda Stasi, New York Daily News Columnist New York 1, On-Air Host of Long Running Show, "What a Week", Author, The Sixth Station.
For a busy executive who needs prompt and reliable service, you can always count on Miano Viél. The staff is consistently on top of their game and the end result is always positive. Miano Viél is the best in their business that I have experienced. - William T. Sullivan, President and Chief Executive Office Ronald McDonald House New York.
I love going to Rebecca at Miano Viél! Miano Viél is in touch with the younger generation but always brings a touch of class every time you visit. It's great to go to a salon and know they'll tailor something specifically for your look. It's safe to say this is my favorite place. It's my Disney Land of hair salons! -Shamikah Martinez, Co-creator of Emotistyle Web Series Performer at Upright Citizen's Brigade.
