What Our Clients Say

Everyone here is welcoming and understanding. I may not always know what I want when I go in, but I'm always happy with the outcome!

Danny Lorenz 

Client

Always find them to be a little expensive and I havent been there for years, but I took my two kids and myself for haircuts out of convenience and they did an awesome job. My 8 yr old daughter had an amazing hairdresser who went above and beyond to make her feel like a princess. She styled and curled her hair for no extra charge and just made her day. She couldn't stop smiling for the rest of the day! Will be taking them both back. Thank you!!

Jennifer Reansbury 

Client

I have had lots of bad experiences in the past with salons, but I am SO happy with my service today. I got EXACTLY what I was looking for, and was treated so well. Kourtney was absolutely amazing; so kind, knew exactly what she was doing, and gave me 100% satisfaction with my cut. I am definitely coming back !

Victoria Delesie 

Client

Went there once to have my hair cut and the hair dresser cutting my hair went above and beyond to make me happy. I didnt have anything to complain about in the first place but I still appreciated the service. I recommend this place to everyone.
