I’ve been going to Prisma for over 5 years now. I even moved 2.5 hrs away and I still book in with him!
An appointment with Mimmo can be pricey but you really get what you pay for, I have full confidence that if I am not able to get back to see him in a couple months my hair will continue to look gorgeous.
I appreciate the time and care he takes with my hair, a full hour to cut and discuss, I trust him with all types of hair cuts, I like to grow my hair long and then pixie cut it back, and Mimmo is the best hairstylist for all the in between grow out stages.
I’m a professional in my career and I want to be seen as such, I believe your hair plays a big roll in that! That is why I continue to come.
Highly recommend!

My hair always looks amazing when I come to Prisma. Mimo is an artiste extraordinaire. His cuts and eye for colour are amazing. Mimmo and Kim are great hair style/colour technicians with friendly smiles always. Definitely recommend Prisma salon.

I stumbled across Prisma Hair Design about 15 years ago as I was searching for someone who really knew how to cut curly hair properly. I had tried several “Curly hair” specialists but was never happy with the results.
Mimmo has been professionally trained by Ouidad (Manhattan, New York) and does an outstanding job without fail.
Mimmo listens to your concerns about your hair and explains how he will achieve the desired results.
I now reside in Ottawa, however I still make the 5 hour journey to Prisma as I have not been successful in my many attempts to find a salon that achieves the desired results with my tight curly hair.
Kim, Mimmo’s assistant is a delight. Kim gives the best head massage, shampoo and conditioning treatments. Kim methodically explains how to use the required products correctly in order for you to duplicate the final result.

I had an incredible first experience at Prisma Hair Design. Not only did I walk out with the best haircut I have ever had but I also walked out curl educated! The consult before the cut set the tone. Mimmo throughly communicated with me, asking me what I was hoping to achieve from the cut. He was upfront about pricing and very clear about how much he intended to cut length wise which I really appreciate. It’s never fun to be surprised about pricing or length at the end of a service. I took advantage of the 25 dollars off first time client deal. Mimmos work is so precise and he is truly passionate about hair. Kim did a wonderful job washing and applying the products and really showing me exactly how to do it. The vibe was friendly and fun! I will 100 percent be going back! This is the beginning of a beautiful hair relationship and I cannot thank Prisma Hair Design enough for the amazing experience!

Mimmo has been my hairdresser for the last 7 years. Even before I moved to Toronto, I used to schedule my vacations around my hair appointments. He and his assistant Kim do an amazing job and I am always satisfied with my new do.

Mimmo knows how to cut curls and how to prevent them from growing into a giant poof, unlike most hair dressers who only know how to cut straight hair.

He always recommends a perfect style for my skin tone, my face shape and my preference.

I absolutely recommend Mimmo and his team at Prisma Hair Design (now located in Runway Hair studio).

I have been going to Prisma Hair Design for several years now and want to express my gratitude, not only for the excellent service I’ve received consistently over the years from a professional team of stylists but for the end results.

As a Master stylist, Mimmo was able to rectify “my problem hair”. Previous salons were unable to help my curly, unruly hair become the healthy hair it is now. It would always break, thus never being able to grow. Mimmo is very talented. He knew the love I had for straight hair and after a vey informative consultation, suggested a softening product and Keratin. I was thrilled from day one!!! He definitely cares a great deal about his clients and has always been clear and precise when suggesting a service or product that would benefit my hair. I appreciate how knowledgeable he is and how he does all he can to make his clients happy. Mimmo is one of the most honest and fairest hair stylist I’ve ever met.
Many thanks to Stefania who’s colour expertise has contributed to my beautiful results and Kim who does an amazing job with my Keratin service!

I’m happy to say my hair has been the healthiest it has ever been. It now grows because there’s no breakage and looks amazing!!!!

I come from a distance and it’s worth the drive.
You cannot put a price on this sort of happiness and complete satisfaction.
I could not, nor ever, go anywhere else.

I have recommended him to my family and friends who share the same sentiment and continue to highly recommend him and his amazing team!

To everyone at Prisma Hair Design, Keep up the excellent work !!!!



*****January 2nd 2014

it was my first visit to Prisma Hair Design; I bought a Groupon voucher for a hair cut, roots touch up, and styling.
The very first moment I stepped into into the salon, I loved it – the environment, service and people around there.
And the most important- I loved my hairdresser – Mimmo! He was so professional, knowledgeable, and friendly! He gave me bunch of useful pieces of advice.
Mimmo has special style of doing his job. It’s so important to have a hairdresser who you will  trust your hair being sure that you will walk out from  salon confidently and feeling beautiful.

Thanks, Mimmo!
I will definitely become your loyal customer!

Once again Mimmo ROCKS THE SHOW!

Earlier this year I needed change and so I walked into Prisma Salon, sat down in Mimmo’s chair and told him ‘chop it off I need a change!’ Mimmo smiled and softly said ‘finally’.

We cut off about 5 inches of hair!
By the time he was finished my reflection smiling back owned a new edgy yet feminine style. I loved it, I honestly feel it was exactly what I wanted/needed… and then I had to move out of Toronto 🙁

I usually saw Mimmo at least once a month for my hair care needs and feel that I have created a bond with him, he listens to me when I describe what I wanted to do, he asks questions to clarify, and he always offer his professional opinion but never forces it.

Mimmo always took his time to explain to me why certain styles were great for my hairline and why some were less complimentary, he is essentially an Engineer of hair.

Yesterday (Dec 5) I found myself back in his chair after about 5 months of being MIA, who was I kidding? I won’t trust my hair to just anyone, its the first thing people see, and it says something about me before I even speak.

A short style with 5 months of grow out, yikes right?! Well not when its a Mimmo design!

With the exception of some split ends and longer looking layers, my style was still great, and because of his precision when he cuts I can walk about confidently rocking the same hair cut I got almost half a year earlier!
I don’t recommend going that long but sometimes life gets busy and opportunities to get into the city to see the staff at Prisma Salon are few and far between. But I make it happen.

I will be a client of this Salon for as long as they will have me. Everyone is friendly and education, they love what they do in their careers and it shows!
I highly recommend this Salon!



Elisabeth 8/2/2013

VERY pleased with the cut – I was surprised to hear that they would straighten my hair, then cut then wash – I had never had that happen before and the results were the best ever!
The haircut flowed beautifully – I had a VERY bad cut that I was trying to grow out and that was the only limitation as I didn’t give Mimmo the full ability to do the cut he wanted as I was trying to keep my length.,
I would recommend

I’ve had 2 Carve & Slice cuts by Mimmo since 2012. The products & the cut work together to give me my most managable, less frizzy curls ever. Patient Stephania showed me how to syle my hair, including how to sleep on it for less flattened curls in the morning. I’ll be back soon.

My third Ouidad stylist and by far the best cut! Mimmo and Stefania were just lovely and created a wonderful experience. I’ve had my hair cut at the Ouidad salons in LA and NYC, and this was the best! Thank you!!!

Never in my 59 years have I had a haircut remotely as good as the one Mimmo gave me! He was so attentive and so precise with every snip. Stephania followed up with an expert application of color and a highly skilled rake and shake. The results were astonishingly good.

I have the hair i dreamed of, nice soft curls. The product Ouidad and the hair cut make the style amazing. thanks Mimmo and Stefania i love my new look. Judy Antecol


I live in Buffalo and I travel 2hrs. to Prisma and it is worth it to have a stylist who is trained in curly hair verses a stylist who says they know curly hair. I started with the Ouidad Salon in NYC and was hooked on their care of curly hair and products. I found Mimmo and Stephania by locating the closest salon in my area and the rest is history. When I foung the right salon nothing can come between me and my stylist. Mimmo and Stephania are not only excellent technicians in the art of curls, but lovely people.

Melissa Glorioso (Feb.2011)


I have to confess, I was somewhat apprehensive upon my first visit to Prisma Hair Salon. I wasn’t sure what to expect. After all, I’ve had to endure endless hair cutting experiences with stylists who claimed to know how to manage curly hair. My trust was continuously rewarded with yet another “Que tip” hairdo, or a modern Brillo pad coiffe.

I must say I was pleasantly surprised when Master Mimmo “created” my hair as an artist would tackle a blank canvass. The styling exercise was peppered with “how-to” hints, drying tips, hydrating suggestions and maintenance recommendations around keeping the nighttime curls; all effectively done without a hard sell on products.The atmosphere was pleasant, relaxed and fun! Kudos to Stephania & Mimmo for an enjoyable afternoon and curls to be embraced, not hidden beneath a hat.

I’m definitely coming back.

Angela M. Forgione (Feb. 2011)


Both Mimmo and Stephania worked on my then 3 year old daughters hair. She is completely blind and doesn’t take to having her hair done. They were absolutely wonderful with her and with her hair. They didn’t try to rush through to get her out of the chair but instead gave her a quality Ouidad cut and style. Not only was their work superb their manners and how they related to such a young child was outstanding. Now almost 6 months later she still talks about going to see them and having them cut her hair. I have been to other Ouidad certified salons in the past as there are none in our area we visit a salon when we happen to be traveling nearby but theirs is superior to all the others.


I have been going to Prisma for 5 years and still can’t believe the difference the Ouidad method and products make. Mimmo is a fabulous stylist and Stefania is such a talented teacher. You will leave here knowing how to recreate your best look every day.

Sharri F. (Aug. 2010)


Getting my hair cut and styled at Prisma was an amazing experience. Normally I absolutely dread getting my hair cut since the stylists were never sure how to handle my hair even though they all CLAIMED they did! I was always made sure I was going home directly after the cut since once they were finished my hair would be horribly frizzy. My experience at Prisma was entirely different from any other hair cutting experience I have ever had. Mimmo is exceptionally skilled and when Stefania styled my hair I was astounded – I have no idea my hair could do defined ringlets what Stefania taught me how to do! I was aware of this salon for a couple of years before I went for my cut – but I was always reluctant to go there because of the cost of the cut. However, I have since realized that it truly is an investment – can anyone really put a price on ending bad hair days?! My cut has had amazing staying power and thanks to the styling lesson I have been able to keep my curls looking great. I would highly recommend this salon to anyone with curls. Thanks Mimmo and Stefania! -Kelly B. (July 2010)


I went to Toronto’s Prisma hair design. this was actually my second time.This time I had the softening done as well as the carve and slice hair cut. amazing results!I couldn’t be happier. I wish I had had the softening done a long time a go.I’ts like I have totally different hair now, looser curls, no frizz it’s awesome I love it!

LISA, 06/29/2010


Mimmo, did a great job on my hair and I love the products that I got introduced to. Mimmo you and your team was great to me. I love my hair and the Ouidad product is great. The more I use it the more I love my hair. Thanks again Mimmo!

SHAMIM DHAMANI, 11/25/2008


Mimmo is not only an expert stylist, but a skilled teacher. Today I had my Carve and Slice 2. Mimmo understands, and listens to your concerns, fears, and needs,,and I can take a deep breath knowing that he will create the look I need,,and that he did! Thank you Mimmo,,and team.

CINDY DAVIE, Oct.31st 2008


After having been to Prisma Hair Design I am sure that as long as Mimmo is there I will be a loyal costumer. My hair looked stunning after I left and I was getting compliments left and right. What I loved though as much as the cut was the demeanour of the staff. They were all very welcoming and nice. Also, for those of you ladies who love your long curls no worries. Mimmo is not scissor happy at all!

CAROLINA, 9/13/08


I’m with you! Had my first experience at Prisma and am booked back in for October. Mimmo is the best and he gave me loads of great info on my hair. I love the cut he fixed up some of my previous hair nono’s and now that my hair has grown a bit the cut makes sense and looks great, also easy to manage. Go Mimmo go!

KERRIE in Mississauga, 9/5/08


Mimmo is incredibly skilled, professional and truly a sensitive, artist. He has given me an intrinsic awareness of how simple, and beautiful my natural curls can be. I have hidden them for 34 years and now I have time to be ‘me’. Thank you to you and your staff!!!

Cindy Davie, July 5th 2008


If anyone is looking for a professional that understands curly hair and will educate you on how to manage and properly treat your curls, than you have found him. What Mimmo is to curly hair, is what Michael Angelo is to art. Mimmo, you have earned my trust and respect. Thanks to you I love my hair and no longer have anxiety when it comes to getting my hair cut. My curls are exactly what I always dreamed they would be…. long, full, manageable and never looking better! Your special technique of cutting along with your products have given me the solution to all my hair problems. Thank you Mimmo and thanks to your dynamic staff that work as a team to make the whole experience professional and stress free. Your very satisfied client,

Maggie Mota, Oct.2007

I had 14 Great Curly Hair Day in Cancun Mexico WoW! You were right Mimmo, I used OUIDAD: Curl Quencher moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner (did not rinse out conditioner) next, Botanical Boost Spray-in Conditioner, Climate Control heat and humidity Gel, Clear Control Pomade, Summer Shield Beach/Pool Spray. This was the best Hair vacation EVER! My curls stayed frizz free, defined and beautiful on the beach in 87 degree weather . I received twice as many compliments, and woman were asking me how I was able to manage so-o-o-o much thick hair in this weather. It was definantly a topic of conversation.

You’re the best Mimmo!

Maggie Mota, Jan.2008


I recently went all the way from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Toronto,Canada for the best hair makeover of my life. Mimmo was able to transform an overlayered mess into beautiful curls. It was the first time I have ever left a salon without having to immediately wash and re-style my hair. In addition, the staff was excellent at providing detailed education on the best products for my hair type and the way to use each product. I have spent minimal time on styling and my hair looks great no matter how humid it is outside. Thanks Mimmo!

Tina Nowak, 4/23/2008


For years I pulled, ironed whatever and when to Prism Hair In Toronto in April after that – no more straightening for me. I’ve been once since April and I can honestly say I like my hair better now. I use botanical boost Climate Control and the Serum. I tried the gel but found the serum worked better for me. I spritz my hair in the morning with water and might spritz a little Botanical Boost other than that nothing. I golf almost daily and so during the humidity nothing happened -absolutely nothing – no frizz it was amazing. I also am not washing my hair as often as before – and quite often won’t rinse all of the conditioner out.I’m a happy camper

Finally our 13 year old daughter loves her curly hair. We recently drove 3 hours for Mimmo’s carve and slice haircut. What a difference! She now has long spiral, defined curls instead of a puffy, frizzy mess. At last we found someone who truly knows how to cut curly hair. Mimmo, you are the best. I only wish we had heard about Mimmo sooner. It would have saved Kaylee many tears. Stefania was great at explaining how to use the products and style her hair while Michele did a wonderful job with the highlights and lowlights. Thanks to all of you and keep up your great work. We look forward to seeing you again!

Trudy, Kaylee and Neal Mathews South Dayton, NY, 07/19/2006


# I was thrilled to learn that I had won the Prisma curly hair challenge and was excited to see if all the hype over Ouidad is warranted. I have had the same long curly hairstyle for years as every time I went shorter it poofed out. Mimmo gave me the best haircut. My hair has so much body without the poof, it moves and falls amazingly with a life of it’s own. I have been to most of the top hair salons in Toronto and for the first time ever I walked out happy with the way my hair was cut, colored and styled. It is perfect. Mimmo and Stefania are so passionate about Ouidad and they really take the time to explain the techniques and how to use the products. Thank you Mimmo!!!!

Leslie S., 07/06/2006


Although I didn’t win the Prisma Hair Design Curl Challenge 2006, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a gift certificate for 50% off a Curly Cut and 20% off hair products, just for entering the contest. I was so excited that I hardly slept the night before my appointment, as I have read so many great things about Ouidad Certified Salons. What would my experience be like? It was great!! Not only do I love the cut, I’ve learned a lot about my hair. Mimmo takes the time necessary to teach you about your hair and its uniqueness. You also learn which products you will need for your hair, and how to use them. After many years of being terrified of Hair Salons, I’m relieved to have found Mimmo at Prisma Hair Design, in Toronto. Thanks Again Mimmo…

Jacqui B., 06/20/2006


I recently got the carve and slice haircut at Prisma and can say that it is the best haircut I have ever had. Mimmo is fabulous and it was a wonderful experience! It was well worth the over 4 hour drive I made and I will definately be returning.
