I had Samantha as a hair stylist; she was amazing! The staff there were awesome they all helped and supportive! It felt like everyone was family there. My hair turned out amazing and felt better than ever. Would definitely recommend the deep condition it felt like heaven. I can’t even describe the head message it was… incredible! 100/10 would go back. To be completely honest Samantha will be my new hair stylist for the future!

Amber B. at the Grand Rapids location gave me a pedicure and the best foot massage I have ever had! She gave my feet a parrafin wax treatment and WOW! My feet are so smooth! Amber took great care and attention to me and my feet. She recommended I do a deep conditioning treatment for my hair which comes with a scalp massage and I say yes! I’m excited to see her next week for this!
