Warm and friendly student environment. I was pleased with my student Azyah and the service she provided to my hair. Shampoo with flat iron work. This is a great cost effective alternative to booking with a professional when you are strapped for time.

My stylist name was takia and she was very professional and kind. I thought I knew how I wanted my ponytail but she explained what was best for my hair. I love my hair and will definitely come back to her.
