Kortney did my hair today!! She did amazing and I am so happy with the results. I am a natural brown and I’ve been blonde for 4 years. I was wanting a change and I was wanting to go back brown, however the pictures I sent in were pretty dark which called for a drastic change. Kortney explained lowlights to me instead of just dying my hair brown and I am so happy that she was able to use her professional experience to help me achieve the results that I wanted and would be best for my hair! She kept some of that blonde in my hair and gave my hair great dimension and I am beyond happy!!

Kortney is the absolute best! Anytime I need a last-minute cut or color, she immediately finds a place for me on the calendar. Where I found it difficult in the past with other stylists to get an appointment sometime for weeks at a time, Kortney is always accommodating, and the results are always amazing. Great conversationalist, comfortable environment, attentive to my hair needs and provides knowledgeable hair tips for long term care. She always gets it right! 10/10 recommend!

First time with Courtney. Cut 6 inches length off. She talked through details of the haircut photo I brought. Explained how it can work with my face shape. Also showed me easy way to style after I told her I did not spend extra time on my hair. Very pleased!

I was most impressed with the way in which Kortney took such care in consulting with me as a first time client. We discussed the type of style and maintenance that was comfortable for me, what I liked in a hair cut, and my expectations for the final look. She was masterful in her cut and I couldn’t be happier with it.

My stylist, Madisyn, was friendly & professional from start to finish of my salon experience! My hair had not been touched in 3 years, so I was a little apprehensive before my appointment. Madisyn made me feel completely at ease, helped me make the right choices for my hair, leaving me with a wonderful cut, color, & overall experience. I have not stopped getting compliments since I left the salon & could not be happier with my hair!! I will definitely be returning for all my hair needs!!!Thank you, Madisyn :)

Emmy was amazing! I have longer hair and needed a cut and color match. She matched it perfectly, and added layers to my long hair . It is probably the best hair cut I have had in a several years. Highly recommend!
