Monimay Philosophy of Hair

Everyone coming to Monimay Salon will have a great experience. We treat every customer with gratitude and thanks for choosing us. Each client will be given individual attention and time necessary to create their ideal look.

Haircutting & Style

We will analyze your bone structure and discuss your lifestyle to determine the best cut for you. We work with your hair not against it. Your ideal look will come from how well we have cut the shape not how talented you are with styling it.

Hair Coloring

We will analyze your skin tone, eye color, natural hair color and existing color and we will recommend shades that will best compliment you features. The technique and color placement will also be designed to enhance the shape of your haircut and the texture of your hair.

What Clients Say?

Today was my first visit to the Monimay Salon and I have to say that I was a bit impressed. I left there a happy customer. I usually have a hard time finding people that can cut my hair right. I have thick and straight "Asian" hair and most of the time it gets messed up. Paul at Monimay Salon took the time to listen to what I wanted and did an awesome job executing it. I wanted an inverted a line bob and got exactly what I was looking for. I'll be back for sure!

Bernie M.

I just moved on island from California. My roots and highlights were in dire need of attention. After researching Kailua-Kona salons on Yelp, I made an appointment with Monica. I am so glad that I did...my hair looks great. I also very much appreciated Monica's graciousness after a series of events caused me to be late for my appointment. I will definitely be back.

Maggie K.

Such a fabulous salon! My color looks so great exactly what I wanted. Cut is great for my long hair. I'm always hesitant to get trimmed in fear of too much length being chopped and too many layers put in. I trusted a friend's recommendation and she was so right! I'll definitely be back and I'll recommend to everyone!
