Welcome to Mahin.

Posted on October 23, 2011 by Nam Nam

The Summer of 2011 was the culmination of many idea and trial over the years at Mahin. Beauty Lounge and Cosmetic Boutique. For the past 20 years, we have worked to provide an intimate space dedicated to creating the best looks and options for our guests. For the past 20 years Mahin and I have searched corners and streets of London, Paris and New York to spot the new looks and the best niche products, as well as cool new concepts for our clients. We are quite excited to watch our store grow and quite excited about our wonderful team who now share our knowledge with more guests.

In 1994 Mahin returned from London after attending a Toni and Guy workshop excited about a new cut and new technique to make this cut work. We were not surprised when we discovered the same haircut that following year on Jennifer Aniston (Friends,Rachel) and this look became the rage. A few years later a friendly guy walked into our store to show us a new product line by “bumble and bumble” we also had started noticing, these great mussed up short cuts on leading men and very feminine short cuts on women. As we investigated further we learned that this was indeed the razor cut technique developed by our very own bumble and bumble. We are proud to have been the first Salon in Palo Alto (since 1994) to have provided these products and hair cuts. Mostly recently we have discovered a formaldehyde free option for smoothing hair, fantastic Oribe products and Juliette Has a Gun and Costume National fragrances.Over years, our clients have come to rely on us, for more than just hair and products. Sometimes it is a questions about a great new restaurant in town, which yoga studio to try, or were to stay when in a big city. Other times, its a question about healing properties of crystals, or which essential oil to use, or who to try for a great massage.

We are in constant search of beauty, health and bliss. We are curious about the world around us and its new ideas.These pursuits have led us to many great discoveries and many great people and experiences.Mahin. isn’t just about great hair, and great products, but a lifestyle and a distinguished aesthetic in an rapidly changing world. I hope you visit us from time to time.
