Everyone was nice. The student did a good job. I like that I can usually get an appt in short notice due to my work schedule.

I went to a local salon and spent $200 for them to NOT do what I wanted and chemically fry my hair. I went to Jess at La James and for $50 they sent me on the way to healthy hair with a gloss. Thank you 😊
