   Jan

As long as I can get in and out in 2 hours for a cut and color, I am happy! If it regularly becomes 3 hours, I will have to find another salon. Three hours is just way to long, especially when I have to wait 30 minutes or so between color and cut for Maria to finish with another customer. The salon must be mindful of the clients ' time.
   Amy

I've been seeing Maria for years and she is always so wonderful. She works with me to help me find the best ideas for my hair!

Haley was very pleasant and knowledge. She really took her time to make sure my cut was exactly what I wanted. She constantly checked in to see if I needed anything. While talking about booking my next appointment she informed me that the salon offers a free nape trim. I never knew that and my nape hair line is one of the reasons why I have to go like every 3-4 weeks.

I thought Chad did a really good job on my blowdry. He spent a lot of time with me and it really came out just as I like my hair to look. If he gets to work on clients on other days besides Tuesdays,, I would definitely and ask for him again.

Both times I have been to the salon I was treated so well, it is a very welcoming environment! All stylist are very professional and pleasant to speak with. Each service was described so I had no surprises, and the hand massage was so relaxing! Although I live away from here I will return to the salon in the future and would not be disappointed with any stylist! Very nice job, Tony and company

Unable to wash or blow dry my own hair for a few weeks, I booked these services with Kailah. What a gem she is! Not only was she warm, friendly and easy going, she was right on time and professional. She asked me about my preferences in product and styling, and quickly learned how to best dry & style my cut. Love her!

Brittany is great - she always does a wonderful job - gentle yet thorough. I think it's too bad that she doesn't have a good space, with an appropriate chair, a privacy curtain, and a better light. (These are just my thoughts - not hers!!) - I miss the little room in the back.
