“I LOVED IT HERE! They were so communicative and nice! My hair stylist was Hayley Nicole, and she was absolutely perfect. I got the exact haircut and color I wanted like it was a 1 to 1 copy of it, if better. She was also super sweet and funny, I absolutely recommend her. I'm totally satisfied. The atmosphere was calm and every employee was super sweet."
