“We strive to create a big-city feel that clients desire and deserve. The shampoo room and hair spa rooms are separated from the busy salon and color bar to allow the client to have a relaxing, pampered, spa-like experience. The color bar provides a community feeling and the cutting stations are beautifully appointed to finish with the exhilaration of getting a new, beautiful look.”
