I had the best experience ever. When I enter she got right to job. Turned on some relaxing music and starting working her magic. I wasn't waiting for my service. I received a facial from Daisha. She was polite, she told me about each product she was using before she used it. She asked me questions about my skin which I loved. She took her time didn't rush. I was falling asleep during my facial. It was such a vibe. I will be coming back next week Thank you again I really appreciate your service.

Thank you so much, Cerriyah!! I went and received lash extensions for the first time ever yesterday and I absolutely love them ❤️ My day was filled with so many compliments on "my new mascara." I appreciate you taking the time to make me feel all dolled up and pretty. You are not only becoming extremely talented but you're also learning great skills of hospitality. Thank you for having me and I look forward to returning or becoming a client of yours when you're ready 🥰

I’ve had the pleasure of coming to Empire for a few services with Maddy, all of which have been amazing! The most recent was a back facial which I’ve never had and I LOVED it! It even came with a mini hot stone massage and a hand massage. I cannot recommend taking the time to give these girls a chance, you won’t be disappointed!
