As a young girl, Luz Mancebo took great pride in her lustrous head of hair. She gingerly combed out tangles every morning and conditioned her locks until they glimmered in the bright Dominican Republic sun. After taking home numerous first-place prizes at hairstyling competitions in Puerto Rico, Luz packed her bags and headed to the United States with dreams of opening her own salon.
Today, the skilled stylist brings her talent, determination, and years of experience to Mimada Beauty Bazaar. Amid the cheerful pink and purple walls of the luminous salon, Luz, her daughter Markely, and a team of specialists administer a sweeping range of beautifying services—from hair weaves to waxing services to mani-pedis. The versatile stylists accommodate all manner of hair type, including curls riddled with stubborn knots, long waves damaged by hair dye, and beehives engulfed in flames.
