Had my hair done today by Christina and Alexa. Both very very sweet & courteous. Checked on my preferences before, during, and after my treatment. They were overseen by Alma who was also very kind and helpful and took the time to listen to my requests. Love coming here! It’s worth the 40minuye drive for me. Thanks again, ladies!

Tried Empire Beauty school for the first time and am supper happy I did! Looked over the website to see what I wanted to have done. I called the school to make an appointment, asked all my questions and did not have any concerns. I decided to go with a perm, something I have not had over 10 years. Because of my lengthy strait hair, I thought it might not be possible. But I was assigned to Campbell, she along with Stephanie the supervisor came up with a game plan. They worked with me on the kind of curl I was looking for and they decided the size rods. I had a nice trim to start and off we went. I can’t be any happier with how it turned out! I was prepared for a few hours, but it was completed faster than I thought. Campbell talked me through every step of the way. She made sure I was comfortable with the process. I will be going back for a refresh even though Campbell will graduate soon. Can’t wait to have someone else practice on me!

Visited this location on 11/01/23. The front desk staff were approachable and welcoming. I was assigned to sweet little Ariana. She gave me a nice and deep condition. The products smelled very good. However, I wasn't able to sit through the roller set process, which was taking quite some time, so I had to leave mid session. Ari was very pleasant, explained the process, and asked questions. 👏 The instructor was also very nice and apologized for everything. Parking was easy to find, so hopefully, I'll be able to visit again another time.
